stay at it

wordz, appreciate the feed homie. You got any tips for gettin the drums to come thru the way they should? I use Reason pretty much by itself. I know you keep them beats slammin so I'd be grateful for any advice you could give. peace

Peace Unseen, Im Peepin Ya Banga Right Now And I Gotta Agree W/ Tzu, I Think U Shoulda Brung Out Da Drums A Lil Harder Nah Mean, Other Than Dat, Its A Sick Beat No Doubt

Is this composed? If so not a bad melody. I like the drum pattern but they are a bit too low but they sound right as far as tone this aint a fast/hard beat but the drums need to be more present.

12-16-2006, 03:21 AM
word up man, thanks to everyone droppin feed, and yeah none of it's sampled, just built from the ground up w/ Reason.

12-16-2006, 04:41 AM
I've gone back and mixed the song down a bit better than it was when I first upped it, also changed the drum kits up if yall wanna peep it. thanks again for the feedback, a muhfucka tryin to listen, peace

dope beat right here!!! PEACE

i like "Dark Nights" very nice joint i could see myself spitting to it (but i say that about almost any beat i'm desperate to get some good beats for my mixtape) and "Lifted Swagger" has almost a "club vibe" to it but it also has a sinister tip on the edge of it (not sure how to describe it) i personally as a beatmaker would add some string samples on it.

12-16-2006, 10:30 PM
word, yeah, it is a conscience effort to not get pigeon-holed w/ the sound. My beats always have that dark edge to 'em but I'm trying to keep away from the break beats always soundin the same. Check back for the update soon, figure I should have it done by probaby either tonight or tommorrow. And holla if you ever need a beat, give me an idea of what you're lookin for and I'll try to cook something up, on the real man you got a good flow and your lyrics is way beyond your years so I'd be happy to help out. peace

btw what you using to make ya beats?

12-16-2006, 10:37 PM
Yea i use Fruity Loops 6, (still learning to sample well i used to do all composing) and yea it'd definitely be cool to get some beats from you, i'll pm you to tell you what i have in mind.

12-16-2006, 10:40 PM
word^, you ever work with Reason?

12-16-2006, 10:50 PM
no is "Reason" a recording program, or is he/she an emcee or prodcuer (my oblivious moment of the day lol)

12-16-2006, 10:57 PM
haha, naw homie its a production program, very cool capabilities w/ it, I composed those song entirely w/ Reason alone, no actual sampling, though you can sample with it too if you have Recycle as well

here's the website, worth checkin out

like the music man, especially the beat on track 2 - keep it up man, im trying to figure out reason too!!!

12-30-2006, 04:39 PM
yo its been a while since i holla'd at you, but i gotta say im liking this beat, kinda jungle, kinda grungy, shit sounds nice, keep it up homeslice

12-30-2006, 05:20 PM
I like the new drums on Dark Nights. That's what it should sound like.

12-30-2006, 05:46 PM
Interesting work man. Nice compos. The drums could be harder and the bassline too. Keep up the good work.
