Mix
Compression : Song and instruments appear well compressed having some headroom
EQ:
0-500 hz : Not so many heavy bass instruments here. Little conflict between the kick and bass. Punchy rise in some areas ( especially when the kick and bass come in)
500hz- 2khz : Quite a number of mid instruments. Normal peaks within this area

5khz- 20Khz: Tapered off high frequencies here
Reverb: Smooth and wide
