I enjoyed listening to it. But the bass-line felt really tame. You could have loosened it up a bit with different notes at the end of a metre (1:53 for example).
I really would've loved to hear a trumpet join the fun around 1:00, which kind of would set the melody.
I don't think adding vocals would be a good idea. I suggest instead adding an instrument that sort of does the talking/telling the story, by not keeping to a certain rythm, what you did with the flute to a certain extent.
Mr.You had just unintentionally created..
G-Funk. Which means Gangsta Funk. Popular in the late 80s to the mid 90s, G-Funk is a blend of Hardcore Westcoast Hip Hop rap music mixed in a healthy dose of 70s Funk classics. Notable G-Funk rappers I recommend you to hear is songs of Vontel, C-Funk, Eazy-E(Explicit), and Twinz in the 1990s.
Regarding to your audio project, it's quite soft, more to Vontel's and C-Funk's chill outs songs unlike the aggressive of Ice-Cube and Eazy-E.
So briefly speaking, if there is a sub-category in Hip Hop, it should be in G-Funk.
Hope you make more audios like these, these sub-genres are hard to come by nowadays ever since the advent of auto-tuning and garbage rap.
-Much Respect Bro.
Thanks so much for the info. I really like this genre, its more musically intelligent and funky than much of the autotuned chart toppers. Im glad you enjoyed it and yeah hopefully more on the way soon :)
i love the subtle bits of flute and piano. It's just so mischievous and nice. The thin texture really works for this kind of song. Great work!
Thanks a million! Glad u enjoyed it :)
So chill, yet so hardcore. It's the perfect combination of smooth and tough, and I really like the combinations of instruments. The beginning's pretty sweet, as well.
PS I think it would be more appropiate if you put in Funk, but a great song whatsoever!
Thanks for the review and the rating.
As I said, wasn't sure about how to categorize it. I suppose it does have some elements of funk, so you make a good point.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
