An instrumental reggae beat that'll get you in a Caribbean state of mind. Influenced by The Aggrolites, Beres Hammond, Tanya Stephens (pictured), Michael Franti, Jimmy Cliff, Peter Tosh, Elephant Man, Bob Marley, Gyptian, Warrior King, Chronixx, Toots and the Maytalls etc.

Really Nice Reggae Beat!!!! Keep It Up!!! :-D :-D

Pretty cool. Steel drums, whether real or not, are always a win in my book. The slidey bass is also pretty cool, but it COULD have done with less slides between notes in some parts. It was sometimes distracting from the actual melody. Some harmonising with the steel drums from some horns or the keys would have gone down awesomely too!

Lastly, too many false endings. There were at least five occasions where I thought the track was ending and then it didn't. If you're bringing the beat down, bring it down, but don't make it sound like an ending, you know what I mean? You could throw in some cymbals, some nice long chords on the guitar/bass/keys, but there's something in there that lets you know 'hey, this song is still going, we're not done yet!'

Really nice track though, I like what you're doing. Keep it up!

Tried to get rid of the false endings and tried to loop it, but couldn't figure out how. Thanks again :)
