Dude Seriously

This my absolute favorite piece of music in the portal, ever. Thats it. No need for review.

LJCoffee responds:

Thank you - :D

I'm glad you like it!


very slyly done indeed. a nice blend of the 2 cultures, as though u had snuck your PC into a temple and played along to some scene from crouching tiger / hero. slick work getting the drums and 'guitar' part sync'd up seemlessly. no evidence of cutting and slicing at all. also liked the bongo-esque part that came in towards the 2nd section. smooth motherf*cker :)

LJCoffee responds:

I loved this one - it was fun - It works both ways - So many asians are enamoured by the western hip-hop culture and so many ghetto-ass mo-fo's just can't get enough of the really shitty dubbed chinese movies - :D

I was trying to do my part to bring the two together.



Brilliant tune.

I came back to it when I was looking for something to back my haiku submission.

Really original - classy oriental tune with funky backing.

One crit - I think the bmphs sound a little fuzzy, specially at the start. Also, I think maybe a slightly higher-pitched drum sound might work better.

I admit though - I'm not sound engineering dude.

I just really enjoyed listening to this.

I think you should make more stuff like this.


P.S. I hate reviewing 'effort'. Seriously. How are we meant to know how much effort you put in? That category seems stupid...

LJCoffee responds:

Holy Bejeezus - I'm so sorry that I didn't respond earlier - I completely missed this review - I saw that submission btw - and it was excellent!


It sounded like a chineas HillBilly music (I know that sounds really wierd lol) I liked this one it's one of the better ones i would say.

LJCoffee responds:

Just messing around a bit - :)

O chi min, shoot a load on my chin!!!!!

Nice feel to this one. crispest of crispest of production as i have come to expect ;P Where is that sample from, well nice. Did a track with a chinese bamboo flute that i'll post if i can dig it out.

LJCoffee responds:

Drums were laid out by yours truly, the (shamisen(?)) samples were taken from a Sonic Foundry (now Sony Media) sound loop set ,cut up a bit and rearranged a little in Sound Forge then finally tweaked and mixed in AcidPro.
