    Hello! Busy with the final examns I made a little something something. This time it's a neurofunk hip hop beat inspired by the likes of Dope D.O.D and Foreign Beggars.

    Feedback is always appreciated! I also put on the Jump Around acapella.

    ah nice one :D I love dope dod and foreign beggars, so right up my street this one!
    maybe get the snare a bit punchier, with a short attack
    I wold love to hear this one with some vocals on top! It would definitely be awesome

    Never heard of these guys im gonna check em... i liking this a lot gritty yet more my tempo nice work all sounds fine here, as crizis said a punchy snare might give this a bit more flow as it is a little in the background.

    Siiiiiiiiiick!! This is exactly the kind of track i want to make for a friend!
    Did you use a specific time signature? Or just 4/4 with a tight note placement? Because it's groovy!!! :D

    Aaah Dope D.O.D and Foreign Beggars! They've had a helping hand from NOISIA, production-wise!
    I do notice they roll of the treble on the basslines (or at least the very very high frequencies, 12kHz+) when lyrics are on top.
    That way the lyrics are slightly sharper than the basslines.

    Thank you guys for nice feedback! I use 4/4 time signature in hip hop tempo, so no doubletime tempo-wise.
    I have fixed the snare now and put on some old classic rap acapella.

    More feedback is appreciated if possible!

    :D Fuck yeah! Where did you get those lyrics?! Sounds awesome!

    You could boost the treble on the lyrics a bit, so that the consonants pierce through the mix.

    The snare is much better!
    And I gave a chuckle when the vocals came it, hehe classic
    although I'd like some more darker vocals, as dope dod, foreign beggars, faster stuff, deeper, darker..

    Yeah! I would like that too, but I don't know any rappers doing that kind of style. I just found an acapella to put on for reference. If anyone knows somebody with that kind of style, I would like to get in touch ;)
