When Rachmaninov meet Madlib's drums and Wu Tang's atmosphere.

A project I put a lot of efforts into. I played everything you hear, of course the piano intro and outro and main sequence that I chopped up on the MPC.
The drums are off-beat on purpose, to give it a natural feel contrasting with the huge levels. Nothing is quantized. And yeah it's a Boom Bap typical ish

Hi, one thing is fur shurr. WAY heavy. Im on low-end head phones and I can tell you that it is going to CLIP!@ It would sound good if that wasn't the case. Its a cool loop and sound would love some conspiracy theorists jumping in on this line

Thanks AimlessScene. The bass and low frequencies go down to 30 hz. I know not everybody as the equipment to listen to such stuff but that's the way I wanted it to break the ground.

pretty awesome for sure. I looove the intro, you could put that in the beat as well as a pretty tight interlude or bridge. The only problem i have is that the snare hurts my ears a bit. maybe just cut a tiny bit of the treble off the snare. otherwise awesome. if you post the tempo, i could tell you some pretty sweet acapellas that would go to this.

Thanks Bizharro. I'm glad you liked the piano thing, 'cause that was the main inspiration of the beat.

Prototype81 Artist dope and respectable. Loved the intro you played, the dark tone of the track with the strings on the elft channel with the centred sampled..everything works together and mixed well. i agree with the snare maybe turn it down just a notch. im not sure if it was the stream, or my work pc, but i was picking up a click every bar ( during verse its loud to me ). intentianal? it comes out the left C. throws me off. do you hear what im talking about? could be the chopped sample? its not the gun clip sound thats centered.. something else.

anyways this is HOT, love how you played almost everything..repsectable..dope **** man.

Thanks Prototype81. Yeah, I know there's a fucckin' clip on the left. It's a problem of level and frequency of the bass : too low! I gotta fix that, maybe take the bass one octave up (like the 2 d notes right after that don't clip).
Yep, that snare is a bit too much in your face. Gotta fix that too.
Thanks for the constructive critic. And for the record, I played Everything here, not almost... smiley
Peace, Alex

Drums are "too light"?!? Haha that's a cool one. Not in a million years I would have thought that those drums were too light smiley You made my day!
Anyway, thanks about the MPC stylin', it was crazy doin' this on it. I'm sorry you didn't like the track. Hope I'll do better next time.
BTW, been a while since you posted some of your dope beats. Comon' man.
Peace, Alex
