A short down-tempo Drum and Bass track.
I spent some time making this track trying to make it sound professional and not to generic.

If I get some good responses I will quickly make an extended edition.

I will respond to every review.

Good sound

Decent vocal sampling, accompanied by a good beat and melody. Perhaps this could be developed a little more, leading to a better melody solo, which could spur you on to something else with the bass.

I like the way that you've brought the strings into the piece and I am impressed with how it all comes together, but I would hope that you could use better samples, to make it sound like more of a rap track. Perhaps in the circumstances of your next piece, you can come up with a vocal artist from Newgrounds and give them the chance to mix it up with you.

A good song. The melodies create a very nice atmosphere (yeah, I don't smoke pot, but your song makes me want to, lol) and the background beats are very driving.

I also like the vocal samples you put in every now and then. They provide that "rasta feel" you promise in the title. :D

Only thing is that this song gets a bit dull towards the end, maybe you should try to change the beat around even more.

Haha, your review put a smile on my face.

Thank you for reviewing, and changing the beat towards the end is not a bad idea.

Crazy sounding.

This didn't make much sense but has a nice beat to it. Here and there you could have doubled the speed.

Voices: Comes and goes, can't really understand what they say either, makes it feel a little spacey as well to me. Very nice touch there.

Piano: When it comes it gives me a feel of playing StH(2006) again for some reason, another nice touch. Really liked it right there.

Drum 'n' bass: Sounds awesome and pretty complex to me, could probably be mastered after awhile but would take practice. Very nice drum riff.

Reverse effect: Another nice touch.

Overall: Very nice but makes me feel a bit creeped out and nostagilic.

The vocal samples don't make sense at all, but it's not meant to make sense either... Hehe.

I disagree on the speed. It sounds somewhat over boosted with extra speed. I don't think it sounds good.

The song without the vocal samples sounds lame and much less energic. Im glad you liked them. In my opinion - Piano leads/pads is the easiest part in a song to make, but im glad you liked it.

So this song creep you out, never heard that one before. Sorry bout that ;)

Anyway, thanks for reviewing. Really helpful.

True to the Rasta spirit...

My second boss I ever had was a Rasta, he would listen to this shit all day.
He was a tyrant, and forced his staff including me to eat jerk chicken.
It caused all of us to suffer the trauma of sever bloody anal fissures.

I try not to listen to this kind of music, not because I dislike it, I think it's
pretty cool, reason being I get flashbacks of all the blood left on the toilet, and
end up crying myself to sleep at night in a fetal position...

The track you made has really cool moments, the orchestral part that comes into play was really unexpected in a good way, and made the music more unique.

The drum beats were very well done, and the vocals although almost inaudible did seem to carry that signature Rasta tone of voice. To bad you didn't include the word "pussywhil" in there somewhere.

Nothing is really wrong with this piece other than it's somewhat short.

I'm sorry if this song is bringing back bad memories for you. I'm also sorry for laughing of it...

Thanks for liking the song, nothing you're really complaining about and it's somewhat much harder to respond to positive reviews.

Anyway, if I had a Rasta vocal sample saying "pussywhil", I would definitely have used it.

I will extend the song later, but for now it would just had been repitive.

Thanks for reviewing, I appreciate it.

Haha, awesome. Nice use of the rasta farmer vocals, it blends nicely into the music. The melody at 1:14 is great, and so are the drums!


DeejayDeeZ responds:
