      STMB   01/22/2017

      Sorry for the outage. The board went down for repairs on January 5th, and we didn't expect to be out for a full 16 days.  STMB is using a default skin, as you can see, and that will probably be the case for a few weeks.  Meanwhile, the board is working better than it ever has before.

#237 BEAT BATTLE [vote]

50 posts in this topic

Its crazy I can hardly get anyone to listen to my beat. But the usual top winners seem to get flocks of people every week to check out their beats. i know my beat wasnt that crappy. I guess i am not in the in crowd with this battle.

Yep... I would give this advice... this is the Stones Throw Board... and Madlib is the premier producer on the label.. so I think the closer u are to that vibe the more people gravitate to you...

2nd... by late Monday is the best day to post... going thru 4 pages of beats is a task... even tho I go thru EVERY track... I can see why cats would get lazy

3rd ... make ur self hot.. "if your not cheating, your not trying" ........download your own track.. have your friends "favorite", comment & download your track... I can't lie, when I see a track DL'd, favorited & commented on I might gravitate to that track more... & comments will get you comments

4th ....and most important ... it comes down to talent at the end of the day... hope this helps

This is like my 10th battle and I've only gotten one vote ever! Whatever sometimes I feel like I should get a little more love, but it is what it is man. It makes me try and be better and realize what Im doing wrong. Im not exactly hip-hop to the bone so its no surprise really. I agree with what Uppr and Butta said. In the end I make music cuz I get something out of it and couldn't care less if I never get another vote. I will still keep trying cuz it's fun no matter what.

Man you only got one vote damn i really enjoy your work thats strange you do hiphop a solid every battle hhmmmm But this is for the group really listen to these guys thats the only thing i can say i dont make music for the masses but i do make it for yall to bump and zone out to as im sure we all do there are alot more beats to go and listen to so its abit ruff but everyone here should get your listen if only once and if you`re here for votes or to gain fans for your face book page that might not happen we hiphop over here and we keep it hiphop so if it aint right that one mans word hiphop is larger then 1 set of ears long things short we do it for the love so let show love and you`ll get that back we hiphop fam no matter what keep it hiphop

All I gotta say in the end is I enjoy each and every battle even if I don't get a mention let alone a vote. I respect all the producers up here and every person that has won deserves it. I gotta step up my game if I wanna win, its that simple. Also thanks ButtaSlick.

1. Mellow, that shit was hilarious.

2. Thank you to everyone who commented, listened and voted for me.

3. I'm using numbered bulletins because I think it makes my sentences mean more.

4. I've been in this beat battle thing for a minute under different names (maestro, speakeasy), #118 I broke in by flipping "My Paisley Window Pane" and have missed maybe only a dozen battles since. Little did I know I can't count and that was the sample from two weeks prior. I've won outright I think twice, split once with Butta. There are people who come correct each and every week and don't win, got skills and don't win, got the best mix and don't win. There's weeks when I'm like, "My flip is sick!" or "Everyone is killing this sample better than me!". Winning is great but learning, getting feedback and hearing new styles keeps me doing this.

5. Now, for my runners up: Jones FoSho, Jams Beats, Jondis, miRss, Beast, Marknroll, Mortimer Finklehouser

6. Felix, that groove is timeless.

And anyone bummed about votes, don't even worry. Like upprhand said, it's about the collab, we're a group of producers that all individually have mad talent. i can count on one hand the number of votes I've gotten. But that doesn't change anything, I've been able to expand my sound, get tips from suuper dope people, and just network. Granted I'd want more recognition but I'm really in it for the fun of it. Everytime I see my name mentioned in a list I know I'm that much closer. My sound is getting that much better. You should hear my older shit lol.

Oh and download my beattape.

had to plug it lol

I second alphanote, and say that shit you said Mellow, outright too funny. I guess it takes a certain type of humor to understant the true halarity in your placement of the out of place. classic. and yea, butta i feel you. but who ever was sayin something bout cheating, that wont get u anywhere in here either. no one cares bout these votes. its the community that is here, and the feedback we all share thats why we here. for some of yall its just looked at as a tool to get plays or you think youll blow up from soundcloud hits. its all just senseless numbers. just cuz someone doesnt comment, doesnt mean they dont like your track. i dont comment sometimes just cuz im not signed in and just want to listen. im sure its the same for others. ANd then theres the other kats like myself who enjoy meeting and making homies with heads like them. If you want to talk bout music, gear, a beat, mcin', get at me. Theres alot of us that live hiphop, breathe it, and interpret everything hiphop so to speak. theres plenty of heads that network, make tracks together and so on, so for plenty of us look at this like fam. But that doesnt get our votes even....

So to my previous statement and what butta said, if its dope, it gets heard. thats all that matters in here. GO sjoin some other group to get signed or get meaningless votes if that what you want, I garrauntee you that theres no other beat battle with as fine a quality as STBB so go ahead if you want to cry bout votes or cheat. Everybody in here dope! peace!

ok. listne to this... your soundcloud-feedback has nothing to do with the quality of your beat!

I wanted to make a joke and vote for beatfux... he didn'T drop this week but - earns votes everytime... but don't know if this is the kind of humor that is understood when u take things this seriously...

now we come to the point of this thread:

our votes!

JAMs BEATS

ps: pope benedict got 16 votes - but he used synths... but big names don't get a special treatment in here!

if sbody came around for votes/fame, this is not your place.

i'm just here for sharpening my knives, hanging out with other beatmakers, listening to dope music, different takes on the same sample... anybody thats been on more than 3 online beat battles knows its not about winning or grabbin votes, but about enjoying it.

guys who have a bigger "fanbase" will get more plays and comments. helps as well if you post your bbattle tracks on your main account. but with your perspective you'll never realise what cats already know, that most commented/fav'd tracks don't have to be the best ones!

it is interesting to see people i now "know" participating here every week... you kinda get to know their sign style, and if you like their style you are prone to enjoy their flips... you are listening to the whole bunch without looking at titles.. and suddenly an enzo/oso/mellow/alphanote/jondis/whoever flip pops up and youre like.. "lemme guess this one! ha!"

so... dont get picky about all that shit man.

This really gives me a new boost.

i almost lost my intrest of making music a while ago but when my homie BEATS FOR FOOD mentioned this group

i thought i will never have the skills to compete with u guys..

made a few beats and i was actually really surprised how my skills just improved... so i wanna thank this whole group for finding my inspiration again.

thanks y'all!

peace!

Im way late on this too much fire for me to even list.. Everyone Keep doing your thing and never get discouraged.This is a weekly thing. People have different tastes in music so you cant please everyone and it would be foolish to even try just to get a vote. just do you.

PS. I really dont think madlib would even have time or interest in checking these beat battles out. He hates computers. lol

the one who woulda got my vote woulda been
