Awesome samples dude. Love musty piano. From about 0:17 to 0:22 it repeats the loop and plays to more bar counts than it needs. The rest I'm pretty sure fits 4:4 fine. Other than that great beat. Love your stuff.
Very Dilla, sounds good bro
The riff sounds like Circus from Jay Dee's Vol.2 - Vintage, except higher. Love the drums and flute addition. Vocal samples add a wild dynamic. I really dig it man!
Rain intro sample, that gets me every time. Always provides a cool cinematic introduction :) Loving the melancholy organ piano. Maybe ease up a little on the cut effects and go for a more flowing piano riff. Again, drums could use a little variety but nothing too drastic. Bass sits nice a subtle. Over all there is some great potential here, just need to tighten it all up and make it more 'complete' i guess. Keep up the good work man. I reckon you'd make a top producer with these kinds of ideas, jut keep at it man.
Yeah. This song was the result of me fucking around with automation and figuring out how that works while adding some basic drums and bassline (Which I still fucking love the fuck out of). I just...don't know what I can add to it. It's got that basic vibe which I sort of love/hate but any time I try to spice it up it sounds incredibly out of place. I'll figure something out eventually.
Haha! That piano at those claps! Makes me think of Never Ever by All Saints. Listened to it in my headphones like i do with all songs so i can get the full experience you intended. I like it. If you can take this whole arrangement and make it sound more natural and earthy with live instruments it would be even better. Good job man.
Thank you! Unfortunately live instrumentation is pretty hard for me to come by as I literally know zero musicians right now. :( I take what I can get and arrange with what I can. In this case it was a bunch of soundfonts from that one thread in the audio forum a while ago. I also am getting better at mixing (Although I need to figure out what speakers to get to do an even better job at it) but sadly I hardly have time these days to create new songs as much as I'd like. I definitely need to get on uploading more things here... I updated this song for the last time as I really need to focus on making more shit instead. Take a listen and send me a PM telling me what you think.
Listened to that song you mentioned, holy shit it does sound like it.
Good stuff man, nice basic melody and a smooth, chilled out progression. Some variety in the drums would really make this bad boy pop. Very fun.
Thanks. I started remastering the song, bringing out the piano as cleaner, making it feel more like a performance then so static. Bringing the drums out and opening em up a bit so they don't feel so flat.
Will definitely add in some variation on the drums. Right now I'm having a really hard time finding a good way to do a string hit, nothing is sounding right.
Straight off the bat I get this cool Resident Evil vibe, real spooky. Flow is tight as hell, production sounds great in my headphones. Thumbs up, I dig your stuff man.
RE4 tho. Soo good :) Glad you liked it man! Stay tuned
Hey this is pretty fun, I bopped along with a shit eating grin on my face. Good stuff man. Dat 49 second mark, thats the intro piano from OoT right? Awesome stuff.
Thanks for the review! Actually, the piano isn't from the game, it's actually a synth (Boldt Andre piano) that I applied the notes from that intro to. I'm still amazed myself how close it sounds to the one used in OoT!
Pachillis: Smooth flow and tonnes of confidence, also had the coin flip advantage for second and last verses. Pretty cool double time. However, his lines were a little weak and half the time were just childish insults rather than witty punches. Also, dropping kendrick lamar for no reason made no sense in the battle scheme of things. And Jar is right, at the beginning of Pach's first verse were there's space before his verse starts, he goes way over time rambling on in an an aussie accent (which he plays on too much) rendering hime a bar and a half of extra rap.
Confident and defiant. Also changed up his vibe from the first verse to the second, matching the instrumental which was cool. Did a solid effort of coming out swinging with the first verse. "Freudian slip" was genius and the priest lines were witty as fuck. He kept it simple with fewer lines, making the most of a slow tempo beat but also kept it relevant by making sure each line as gold. Jar has been working hard this whole comp in order to get this far.
Over all it was a tight battle but I felt Jar was schooling Pach on this one. He had more maturity in his rhymes and stuck to his guns consistently without trying to over do it in the second verse to back himself. I felt a sense of sureness and laid back confidence with Jar where as Pach played on the aussie quip, said some juvenille lines and sounded like a whiny 90's era Slim Shady. I hope to see Jar win this one and really come into his own in the finals.
Hey man, great beat. You're gonna hate this though
