    Hi everybody :)
    After working hard in the studio during the last monthes , I now have 6 new tunes , some solo ones , and some with m-rode , as the new duo we are since we won the Breakbeat Kaos competition .
    Some really different tunes here , let's describe 'em quickly :

    1/ Did u hear that ? (with M-rode)
    this one starts with an indian vibe and a big beat , followed by a massive 16 basses combo !
    don't miss that hip hop beat at the break !

    2/ Under Control (With M-rode)
    Same quality as the previous one , but on an electro tip !
    Massive drop , techy synths , old school vocal , bass-combos , and reeces !

    3/ Super Skank (Solo stuff)
    This one is for the dubwize lovers , with its wicked reggae vocal , 80's horns , siren fxs , dub typical sounds , and an big whole energy.
    I sent this one to a few people , and end up being played by Crissy Criss , and signed to Pure Vibez / Roots Imprint.

    4/ I miss you (With M-rode)
    An housey / dancy inspired one wich is a first try , and quite happy with the result .
    It's a vocal tune with beautiful organs , rhodes , piano riffs , guitar , and a lot more , check it !

    5/ Area 51 ( Solo stuff)
    back to the jump up with this one , but in another way compared to my older stuff .
    51's vocal , at least 10 basses , a heavy drumkit , 808s , glitches , etc ...

    6/ Piccadilly circus (featuring Dark Jedi)
    this is the funny one of the new stuff .
    a circus like synth riff , a bristol bass , shuffle amens , basic but efficient arrangement , less is more :)
    2 degree business .

    always quality mang! -- super skank is the one


    only one small issue with pitch on your drums got me: the horns don't quite mesh with the pitched snare/cowbell you got playing on first 1/3rd[snare], second 1/3rd[snare] and beat 3[cowbell] when it [horn sample] first comes in, but once the vocals come in it's not as noticeable.

    adjust pitch, lower amplitude, something -- that's the only thing that gets me as the snare on the second 3/rd is noticeably off [pitch-wise] when immediately followed by the cowbell on beat 3

    ...the cowbell is played on beat 3 in the half-tempo breakdown where the vocals are prominent so I guess the compromise would be to adjust the tone of the drum on the second 1/3rd to compliment it

    -- am I smoking crack, or does that make sense?


    you da man -- keep em comin' :rambo:

    Yes, yes fellas, nice work.
    Agree with dar kist on the mainstream comment. Thats not a critism tho, just personal test. If it sounds mainstrem then it will sell so fair play.
    Liked area 51 the best. Nice theme work. Good when someone makes a tune that can be related to the title easily.
    nice one lads.

    yes it makes sense , but to be honest , i rarelly change the drums pitch , cause some ppl say drums dont need to be pitched with the tune's key , some say u must .
    pitching drums is an hard exercice , but i will try to correct that problem .
    cowbell isnt right sometimes is it ?
