Cobwebs (Boom Bap Remix)

Four years ago I had the idea of rapping to a beat with really fucked up time signatures. I wasn't nearly good enough to pull it off, but I eventually went back and remixed a song I liked so the tempo was more comfortable and it worked with a drum sample that would make it easier to rap to. That said, actually rapping to this is still obscenely challenging.

Compound time signatures of 4 6 4 6 4 6 4 8 and 4 4 4 5 4 4 4 7.

I received personal permission from Cyriak to use Cobwebs for NON-COMMERCIAL use, so this presumably extends to anyone using this version of the track as well.

Its all the same tempo tho so it would be pretty easy to spit over, i might give it a try!!!! counds cool fo show doe

Kwing responds:

Yeah, the goal was to make something that would take some effort to rap to, but would be doable and sound decent. Definitely let me know if you rap to it!

While it's no Dance of Eternity in terms of ridiculous time signatures, this is still insane. My one issue is that the sound felt a bit unbalanced, with back beat being too loud. Other than that, great job.

Kwing responds:

A few things about that. First off, the original song was composed by Cyriak - I only remixed it. Cyriak has said himself that he doesn't even know what time signatures are. In his words, he just makes music "the way it sounds in his head," which is an outstanding feat even if you ignore the fact that he's an animator by trade and not some technical prog metal prodigy.

I also chose Cobwebs because the majority of measures contain four quarter notes, which makes this (slightly) easier to actually rap to. The same reasoning is also why I mixed the beat to be so loud - again, it's really critical for the percussion to dominate the track to stay on beat, especially for something this complex. If I wasn't so deadset on rapping to this it's very likely I would have exercised different creative liberties, both with the mixing as well as choosing a more adventurous track to remix.

Speaking of which, I actually did consider rapping to Dance of Eternity, but I wasn't sure I had the presence for my voice to match the original and the closest I could find to a hip hop remix was this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkFNdi8gIMY
