Jewels - Drum and Bass / Rap / Electronica thingy... I think it's really good!

So downloaded the acapella from LoopMasters, then did everything in caustic, including all the splitting up of the vocal, I was suprised how easy it was doing it all in Caustic actually, I usually break up the vocal track in Audacity but it seems Caustic is very capable of doing it all.

Anyway, have a listen and let me know what you think, I'm really pleased with the result.

Cheers, Rob

I'd been looking for a rap

I'd been looking for a rap for some time which wasn't about guns, women or how good in bed the artist was... And this suited me well!

Hey Rob, since I ranted a

Hey Rob, since I ranted a little earlier tonight I'll step up to the plate and put my money where my mouth is.

First off, and don't laugh (actually, feel free to laugh all you like) the music immediately reminded me of the movie The Breakfast Club...I have no idea why.

Well constructed, great use of the kick drum triplet feel over the straight rhythm as well. Really good work with the vocal clips too, an under-rated skill, its often not as easy as it looks, errr, sounds.

One small suggestion - the rhythm has a clear "reggae" feel which could really be enhanced in my NSHOpinion by replacing or adding a guitaristic type texture on the upbeat (or beats 2 and 4 depending on how you view it), the higher sounding chord punch, using something from the KS Synth. That would also break up the existing saw type stuff. Take advantage of the fact it has that subtle reggae style overtone. Just a personal thought, not intended as an order in case it comes across that way... I've been a music teacher for a long time so its sometimes hard to come across as anything but.

Regards.

Thanks for that, the reggae

Thanks for that, the reggae skanking was largely an afterthought, well, the whole track was! It started off like as pure DnB track, then I added the rap, which then encouraged the half time segments and then the added skanking. The whole thing evolved from there.
