Author Comments

Time for me to pull a Nav here.

15 different samples from Zatoichi, The Blind Swordsman.
7 compressors.
5 soft clippers.
6 parametric EQ's.
5 volume automations.
1 lovely Yun Veroz scratch mp3.

About 14 hours to create, because a huge process of trail and error. I constantly replacing strings, compressors, and changing the EQ'ing on everything. 40 minutes of cutting the turntablism, and 2 hours of cutting all the mp3s in general.

Programs used for equalizing were FL Studio 7 and Adobe Audition.

100% sampled track.


TOP 5 FOR THE MOTHER FUCKING WIN!!!!!!!!!!!! IN YO FACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We all know who I'm talking about, thanks for the hate. And thanks to all the people who supported me. <33

Best work on Newgrounds. Just found it after years of listening - stuck with me since 2008. That should speak for itself, very glad to have re-discovered it. I love the absolute shit out of this tune, man. Thanks for the new motivating song for when I'm gettin' it in at work from here on out lol just what I needed. Truly an awesome piece, and major props for doing this with FL studio!

To be honest it isn't much of my taste but I gave it a high rating anyways because it's pretty fucking amazing. Mad props for the amount of work and dedication you put into making this beat. Respect.


Very fucking cool.

very unique ,

this song has its own style , im feeling the beat , the rhythm , and the man that sings , good work , i dont ever hear music like this at all thats why im impressed ;D
good job war spawn


Zatoichi was a sick movie!

I agree that this has a middle eastern desert type of feel while paying homage to the old school martial arts films kinda like the Wu Tang Clan (Staten Island Represent!)

Awesome beat that's worth the score. I can tell how much effort went into this piece.

9 out of 10 for some minor problems. I felt some of the drums could of been mixed up in some parts. That's basically it. 9.5 out of 10 really.

Like I said, awesome beat.
