Hip hop drum beat, mellow piano loop, and a happy synth

not a typical hip-hop track

i can see the hip-hop elements here-the big bass, snappy percussion, the danceable parts.
but this also had that upbeat piano melody and cheery synth sounds that aren't typical of whatever hiphop i've been exposed to (admittedly, not much.)
i do really like this track.
i didn't like one of the transitions though. when the piano goes silent, the snapping continues, and there's that sweeping synth, then a bit of snapping by itself, then the first dance part. it sounded a bit too segmented, and i think it might've sounded cooler if you had put that sweeping sound on top of the piano, then instantly hit with the fast part. all the other transitions were handled really well though, especially ones where you had sounds drop out, leaving (most times) that piano loop going.

a really good effort on this one, and it shows. very original, at times unexpected, and lovely on the whole. so great job.

Suspended-3rd-Chord responds:

thanks a lot for the detailed review, man. I appreciate it. glad you like the sounds used in this track, I was trying to go for a different hip hop feel.

now that you mention it, the sweeping part does seem a bit awkward without the piano loop in the background- kinda like something is missing. I think I'll add/experiment with a little bluesy riff in that part and see how it sounds.

thanks once again for the review man!

Not a song that I would download...but

That DOES NOT mean that I do not like it...it is just not something I can see myself listening to everyday...too...different, in a good way of course. Anyhow, all your submissions seem to have unusual quality to them...I think I will have to keep an eye on you for I think future work maybe something to marvel at^^. I give it a 4 overall...keep it up!

Suspended-3rd-Chord responds:

hey man no problem at all. my stuff is unusual? hey that's a really nice comment IMO, thanks a bunch man, you made my day! :) I try to create stuff that's different and doesn't exactly appeal to everyone.

thanks a lot for checking out my work. I really appreciate it man. thanks for 4'ing it too.


This has a nice blend of sounds. The piano progressed nicely. It was a bit strange at first, but when it got a bit further into the song it really came together. The rhythems are nice, and the pads are sweet. You did a pretty good job here. Really original.

Suspended-3rd-Chord responds:

hey, thank you for the nice comments.

I've noticed you reviewed 1 or 2 of my tracks before, as always, I greatly appreciate you reviewing my work man!


haha, i like the clunky childish piano at the start. takes on a different feel when the beat and bass comes in. has a really cool ambiguous major minor feel to it when it's in full flow.

Suspended-3rd-Chord responds:

haha, glad you were able to notice the quality differences in the piano at the start and in the rest of the song...thanks for reviewing my work man.


interesting. at first i heard the piano riff as 2 bars of 3/2 and one of 2/2. so it was kinda techy sounding. anyhow, the production couldve been better. it sounded as though there was quite a fair amount of clipping on the lower bass sounds. the synth lines were cool and i liked the bass line. the piano was a little too programmed for my tastes but thats ok. good stuff. keep it up.

Suspended-3rd-Chord responds:

hmm still clipping on the bass? there was a major problem at first, but I thought I fixed that...hmm.

anyways, glad you like it, thanks for the review and good numbers. cheers man!
