School-Leaving Beat

So, last Thursday (the 24th) was the school-leaving ceremony of my class. Basically every year when the oldest class leaves the school to go to college, they organise an event where all sorts of activities go on. For example, this year we organised an arm-wrestling tournament for all the teachers, made a parody of the teacher's job interviews, organised a karaoke match among the teachers, various bands in our class did covers of existing songs, etc... and I thought of making a rap with lyrics that involve making fun of each teacher (all in good humour, naturally).

So, I spoke with a classmate who I knew was good at writing lyrics, and he began writing lyrics. In the meantime I began working on the intro. Once he finished the lyrics, he sent them to me and I finished the song. Then I asked Echo (http://echo.newgrounds.c om/), who is also a classmate of mine, to make a PowerPoint presentation of the lyrics to show to the school on the projector.

Anyhow, it turned out really well and everyone enjoyed it. The lyrics were well-written and fit well with my background music. Unfortunately I won't post the lyrics here because they're in Maltese (with me living in Malta and all...) and if I posted an English translation then it wouldn't sound good. In any case you'll need to know our teachers to get most of the jokes.

So, about the song, since I was limited in time, I used FL presets rather than made my own synths or found some fitting ones from other VST's. Nobody in the school (except Echo) uses FL Studio so I thought that I won't get any complaints like 'omg u used fl presets noob'. Similarly this uses Vengeance presets (edited, though), and for the same reason I used those rather than layered samples and edited them beyond recognition in the mixer.

Anyway I think this is a pretty catchy song despite the bad sounds. I rushed it a bit but nevertheless I'm quite proud of it. Note that the lyrics are supposed to start at 0:40 so from 0:40 to 2:20 it's just going to be repetitions. It won't be so repetitive with lyrics over it but without lyrics it'll get pretty annoying. If anyone wants to rap over this, be my guest.

Having said all that, enjoy the song, and I hope you like it. It's not often that I make hip-hop songs, or electronic/synthy songs at all, for that matter. Thanks for listening!

Having seen all the show...

It was a great song, which fitted really well with the lyrics which Marc did. I think you should do some other hip-hop songs since you have a great talent :) Keep it up and I'll surely miss our conversations at school...take care steph ;)


Step responds:

You too man. Glad you liked it. Also I LOVED the song you did for school-leaving. Really good stuff; you should submit it.

Hope we can still keep in touch!
