Here's a short funk song. Actually it's a short demo for my band. But I figured I might get some responces here! So please tell me what you think!

Reminds me a bit of the opening theme for 'Desert Punk'.

I always respect a man who can use trumpets...

People say funk is dead. It's thanks to people like you that I can say they're wrong. I actually danced to this

i came..

ive been going around newgrounds making a compilation album for my itunes library and i stumbled upon what im hearing as i type this to be the holy grail of a diamond encrusted unicorn that was made in Valhalla. thank you for blessing my ears kind sir. also, IT LOOPS ITSELF PERFECTLY!!! KEEP IT UP!

I ... I couldn't help myself.

I broke into dance and I ruined my living room.

Best I've heard in a long time

It's a really good composition, true to what funk is. The guitar was just grand with the muting and the trumpets were spot-on. If I may make some suggestions for the drums though, I feel like the hats (or cymbals, I can't really tell) should be doubled when everything else shuts down (at 00:35 for example) just to give it that extra kick. Also, I felt like the transition to the piano was too harsh, and although the actual piano riff fits in nicely, the tempo was completely thrown off (slowed down) in a very abrupt manner. Nonetheless, since this is only a demo, I'm sure these minor details are not a worry. All in all, this is great work. I wish your band the best.

ChrisisD responds:

Thanks for your excessive review! I really apreciate this kind of reviews with suggestions! The thing is with this demo is that I played everything myself with Reason 5. We'll go to the studio somewhere in June. The slow piano part, I guess you're right about the transition. We're going to look into that! Thanks again!
Greets, Chris
