Author Comments

This is my submission for the Sample Battle of the Newgrounds Hip Hop Competition '10.

I heavily manipulated the samples given so I'm gonna break down what I did.

-I chopped and pitch-shifted the 'jungle melody' sample that runs throughout most of the song.
-Chopped the sample 'piano' and added heavy delay and reverb.
-Chopped up the piano chords from the middle of the 'Mexicaine' sample.
-Chopped, pitch-shifted, and distorted the 'BarRoomBluesBass' sample.
-Pitch-shifted the snare, clap, and hi-hat samples to give the break a 'darker' vibe to them.
-Scratched the willy wonka 'dreamrom' sample and the 'laughing' sample.
-For the outro I reversed the 'whipdear' sample, EQ'd it to muffle the hi-end, and chopped it up.

In the end, I just wanted something that sounded completely different from what I knew people were gonna do, so I avoided certain samples in the pack.

Kinda odd.

I like odd... but this wasn't all to great... I like the end the most.

Have fun flooding newgrounds with shitty reviews.

It got better

I was at first thinking was this was one of the lesser songs here, but it got better as it went on. Now that I am listening to it again, I am learning to appreciate it more. What is most important is that you manage to change the pace of the song for the good of it. A lot of submissions here do not have lyrics, but it seems like you short of made a compromise. It was also nice of you to list all of the things you did to make this song. I believe the main emotion this song gives off is fear or creepiness.

GunstarGreene responds:

Thanks dude, I was working with limited resources when I made this - didn't really spend my time well or organize the track to my approval, but if a few people dug it, that's cool. Thanks for the genuine review, I'm glad it grew on you.


It sounds like the horror by RJD2. Epic stuff.

GunstarGreene responds:

I really don't see that at all, but thanks for the compliment.
