Chopped the sample a little to make my own melody and added a couple subtle effects, chopped a drum sample, blah blah. I don't remember the name of the song I took the other sample from, and I lost the project file. Originally this was going to feature SenatorJohnDean on vocals, but it's a bit too short, so I don't know. It could potentially have a short verse or two, who knows. Just thought I'd put up the instrumental for now.

The song name hits the nail on the head. Reminds me a lot of 90's style hip-hop; repetitive but for some reason undeniably catchy.

Thanks a lot man! I really wanted to redo this one, but I lost the file, and also haven't really had time to do anything anyway. Me and a friend are trying to put together a band of our own and we're not really going in a hip hop directioin, although there might be some hip hop influence. Right now, all my time is devoted to working, eating, sleeping and trying to work on that project with him. We'll see what happens! :)

really great drumline, needs a couple more tiny melody switchups occasionally, other than that, great job homie, keep it up.

JackRocker responds:

Thanks man!

What's up Jack? I know it's been a while, man :) I'm diggin this, and basically agree with everything Stavier said.

Thanks a lot man!

Nice beat mayne. I overall like the atmosphere it has and it has some great details that I love about it. Someone could really spit some fat rhymes on this. Here's my critique (I haven't done a review in so long)!!!

The sample it's was a very good choice. It's nice to know that the people on the site still listen to good jazz cuz I listened to the original and it is very relaxing so good choice. I think you could've done more with the sample though and just add another bar from the original.

I love that bassline. Nice job on the notes for the bass cuz it just sounds really nice and clean and well mastered with my speakers/headphones. I think adjusting the notes on the vibraphone and note placements might be good to make the song sound smoother for every bar that has the vibraphone, but hey you don't have the file so I won't be harsh on that. But, it was a nice touch to add to the song!

Dude, I'm lovin' the nice phaser/flanger effect towards the middle-ish of the song. That's where someone could go real ham on dem lyrics boii. I think adding a few more drum instruments like cymbals and lighter percussion could make this piece come together even more, but that's just my opinion.

Overall, this was a really nice song. I believe that it probably could've been even longer too, but hey, files come and go ya know?? I've been in that sitch too. Good job mayne!!!
4/5 Stars
5/5 Score ;)

JackRocker responds:

Thanks dude! I definitely appreciate the review, and one of these days when I get a new PC, I'm thinking about trying to revisit the original sample I used and do something completely different with it. Glad you enjoyed this, and I definitely appreciate the feedback!

that was pretty silly sounding and i kind of enjoyed it but what i did not like was that vibraphone or whatever. it was a kind of in a lower register than i would have it, and it just sounded like it was in a different key or something... and it was hard panned right but thats not that big a deal. anyway i think this would be cooler if you just add another section in the IV chord, if you know what i mean. so whatever key this is in, go up a fourth; ex. in c, go to f. and then do a different pattern as sort of just a break away from this fairly repetitive thing, and then come on back. anyway, overall sounds funky but could be greatly improved/expanded.

JackRocker responds:

Thanks for the feedback dude! I'll definitely work on that in the future. Thanks again!
