That mix isn't clipping. I took the liberty of doing a quick master of it. All I did was put a high shelf boost and some compression on it, then added limiting to get it up in volume a little. I left enough headroom so that compressing to mp3 would not cause it to clip.
Gary Numan. That's who this reminds me of. I mean... you really nail that vibe.
I'm not hearing the kick, neither in your mixes nor BSG's remaster. It might be one of the various synth sounds or lost within the various synth sounds. I would like to feel a thump when I crank this song up. Just not getting that. Maybe I'm too old school these days. If you're going for an iso-energy across the spectrum kind of mix, I think you got it.
Sometimes I feel the distorted synths step all over the vocals, other times, it's the perfect balance. I can only imagine the amount of time you spent tweaking the mix.
I think the vocals are stellar. I remember your mixes from years back, and this is such an improvement.
I liked this one from the get go. It has a mad kind of 80's euro punk electronic vibe about it. I agree about the missing kick. Sometimes the answer is to just dupe the kick track with a different sample and compress the bejesus out of it
