My vote is for Beatronome as his beat spoke the most to me.
It was professional, the sample use is good.. and its exactly his own style of beats.. and that is a great job speaking of the lame song we had to sample lol.

MellowYouth (Now that's just crazy, sick.)
MilkyWay (I liked the vibe, refreshing.)
SFT (Man, you bring quality every time, bass was crazy.)
Beatfux (Nice how you always succeed in making melodic stuff and banging at the same time.)
Pawl (Raw laid back, too bad of the outside bass.)
OSO (Nice drums and atmosphere.)
Areou (I don't know how you do it, but you always manage to pull dope sounds out of the sample, some DJ Shadow-like stuff.)

WHY IM GIVING FEEDBACK/COMMENTS HERE AND NOT ON SOUNDCLOUD?:

Soundcloud is allot of love and non negative, non feedback comments. And i like that.. and like to keep it that way.

BUT

What i liked on some other contests i participated in was the fact that people would try to give real feedback on things he or she would have changed or done different. Why? Just to grow... Use what you think that person is right about and leave the things you think he's wrong about.

My feedback is (most of the time) based on taste... And believe me it's no hate! I love to see people get creative!

Hope yall feeling me on this!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Feedback / Comments



Mellowyouth: Crazy! Electro vibe or something like that!!... Nice work on the vocal tag also! I would have liked the drums a bit more on top but that is just me searching for something i would have changed! hehe amazing production! 8 outta 10!

Rowsedower: Nice mellow vibe on the sample use!! Drums are maby a bit to wide... some hats are only on the left and others only on the right... on a mono set they would proberbly not be hearable... nice how you used the guitar btw!

TV OST: Oooh glitchy!... But no swing?!? cant really bang my head to this in any way... or is it my misplaced feeling for rhythym? lol... Harmonics arent really good worked out also.. not really my cup a tea, sorry.

Brotha B: Nice work on that bass!... Drums are verry static... the piano part falls outta the beat.. bit offbeat.. maby could have kept it more minimalistic becouse the bass is verry nice!

J Sense: Reversssseee! Nice slow rhythm on the intro! I like the vibe!! Production is a bit strange on the compression part tho... i think the mix or mastering could have used a little more attention...

Emrou: Nice clean sound!... Your bass sounds a little offkey... The sound of the bass is dope tho... your chops are nice also.. a bit plain but it works... i could hear a rapper on this one!

deadmarauder: Wow that first sound! How the hell you made that?!?!?! I dont like your drums but i do verry much like your sounds from the sample damn son crazy!! Hahaha that vocal tagg is epic!! If you would done something else on the drums it would have been epic... believe me! hehehe 7 outta 10 just for that sample usage... crazy!

MilkyWay: Yeah nice how you got that flute working!! But why so much usage of the grossbeat plugin from fruity?? It's nice for a break but i think you used it a bit to much... And where is your vocal tagg?!?

OneTone: Aaaah finally someone using distortion!!! Verry nice use of the flute also!! There is a part where its a bit offbeat tho... Your breakdown is also verry nice! With this composition you could have easly filled 2 minutes! Crazy drums on the second part (gave me that studio record feeling)

Beast: Oof lotta compression on this one! Im not a big fan of overcompressing (or pushing things on a end limiter/maximizer)... Crazy drums later on in the beat (the hats sounding things!) Sounds a little like a maschine.. like it!.. break down is a little unexpected tho... not my favourite part...

Nell Stalgya: Dude why... i dont like this beat... lol... i liked your other beat way more!! Chops a bit plain and dark... That delayed chop is a bit outta tone to much for me to like it... sorry i really liked your other beat more... lol
Nell Stalgya (old beat): Lol crazy vocal tagg! but i like it!... Verry nice and harmonic beat from you this time!! Keep that comming! Bass sounds nice also! 2nd part is not really harmonic on the other end... whole mix could have used a eq to boost the highs in the beat also..

GMGbeats: That kick is solid! Verry nice... send it to me (meerdat@gmail.com) lool just joking.. but if you want to share.. hehehe lol.. Nice vibe on the chops also... its all in the right place... good mix!.. Your clap could have used some more layers on the second part tho.. dont really like your outro... Vocal tagg is nice! 7 outta 10!

Roger Beattaker: Nice work on that vocal tagg(s)!... Dark bass!! Like the melody you played with it.. and the vibe it gives the beat!... this beat would be nowhere without it.. and in a good track the bass is usually the foundation of the track.. so nice work!

S.F.T.: uses the technique im using!! yeeey! hehehe.... A bit to much usage of the grossbeat? plugin this time... chops a bit plain... do like your snare/clap layer.. swing on the hats maby a bit forced but nice! good use of filters also!

F.J.: Nice use of the sample!... But should have played with the attack to remove that click on the beginning of the chops... Whole sound is a bit to much compressed also... really like how you made the chops sound but the all over mix needed some more work!

Beatfux: YEEEEY hahaha epic intro! Yeah! This is how you chop!!!! Nice delays on the end of the sample! Haha that yeey makes me laugh every time! If this beat is mastered (becouse it could use some mastering especially on the high end eq) i would love to hear a rapper on this.. this are the kinda beats i preffer to hear rappers on!

Soul_UP: Minimalistic vibe on this one! Bass is nice!... Like the delay that goes from right to left! Verry nice that it has a little hidden melody! Would have loved some chops from the flute part on this!

buttaslick: Nice dusty hats!... Snare could have been louder in the mix i think... Chops are a bit loopy... Nice that the clap is added after a while, gives it a nice extra touch! Flute on the end is nice! Where is your name/vocal tag??

Pawl: Ooh i like that bassline! Verry nice!... Good use of the guitar chops, really nice!! Where is your vocal tag?!?! Beat all over a little bit to choppy for my taste. Do like your snare!

Unibrowser: Hmm strange swing... doesnt really fit the sample... Bass is really nice tho... is the bass really made out of the sample?? Does that vocal say unibrowser??

Opin dracons: Yes O P I N! Thats what im talking bout!!! Really nice creative name nametag... The piano has a nice flow!! the flute works out just fine!... The rattle (or something like that) gives it a sound like a amplifier full of sand... not really my thing but definitly creative one!

Beats for food: Oh yeah... nice! Piano loop is a great four bars to layer upon and you do so!! Love what you did on the arrangement and the reversed crash! It got a intro and a outro verry nice! 7 outta 10

Illeyes: Lool nice uptempo vibe! makes me happy!... mix could have used a little more bass on my opion... vocal tag just a little to much repeated for me... do like the second part! its a more steady layback vibe!

Plasticman: Lol your tag is from a cartoon isnt it? Nice chops! Drums could have used more mix to get them banging!!.. Im missing a obvious bass also... 2 part on the chops are just a bit to loopy for me.. 3th part the same...

Jams beats: Jams beats boy!!! Yeah this give me chills! You can hear its mixed! You enhanced the sample or been playing with the panning!... Dont really like the fact that the clap is wide also (i like it in the middle)... Little scratch (sample) is nice also! chops and layers are cool!! 8 outta 10!

sensimillia: Like the comments say, smooth it is!!... I wouldnt even used that snare patern if i was you... maby a bit to much/overdone... brings down the vibe of your chops a bit...

Analog burners: Lol your chops give me a asian vibe (the first part)... second part a bit to choppy for my taste... always nice to hear reversed crashes (i just love them, and use them way to much lool)

OSO: Oh yeah love this vibe/swing!... Verry nice use of the sample (reversed right!?) it's good that it breaks down becouse i was just thinking oh this is allready to much layers to keep that vibe alive!.. 7 outta 10!

Olodidact Aka Olos: O L O S! Nice! Chops dont really match each other... whole sound is a bit loopy and clouded on some parts also... not really my cup of tea sorry..

aReOu: Oh yeah nice vibe! Crazy drums!... You made your own instruments out of the sample as i can hear! verry nice! whole mix is distorted tho... Would have been a way better beat in my ears if the mix wasnt distorted...

Beatronome: Nice swing!... nice panning in the mix!... Great relax vibe... dont really got allot of points i would have changed i guess... but where is your vocal tag?!

MOXATRON: Nice what you did with the letter on the rhythm!!!... The piano and the flute come to gether just fine! Drums are a bit static tho... would have loved some more swing in them! Really creative on the loads of chops!

Enzoeyeris: Yeah this is what i mean!! you clearly boost ting up and think about your mix!! I like that! Drum are a bit to wide tho (in my ears, but fuck my ears.. lool) ooh switch a to c i would have left outta there... kills the vibe... or maby place it somewhere else in the arrangement...

miRss: Hmm mix is a bit wattery and weird compressed? Chops are sometimes a bit chaotic alsot but not all the time.. some parts of the chops are verry nice... but sometimes they dont really glue together... and where is your vocal tagg??

Mortimer Finklehouser: Wow this is crazzzy!! Sounds like musicbox that has been raped and i mean that in a good way! The switch to normal is a bit abrupt (just outta the blue).. You definitly been creative with the different parts, dope!

Doulmondo: i was typing a comment but then i read you used a additional bass... i do blame you.. sorry the rules are the rules.. that bass sound you got is easy to get from the sample... watch the topic and see the tutorial vid and post...

Komplikated beats: Hmm back at your old self.. lol.. drums are verry good... but the sample work is just not my taste... i really think you should focus more on the music an less on the mix... Chops just some collected sounds in my ears (sorry for being so hard on you, you know i like you allot) woop woop

Plusga: Nice work on the drums!! Work on the sample not my thing... Swing is dope but the sample usage is just a bit to simple in my ears... i checked your page and heared some other beats.. and i know you could have done way better things with the sample.. But the drums are verry nice and got a great swing!

Meerdat: You cant sing, you should not sing, your beats suck, eat poo and choke on it!

K-Dash: Verry nice use of the reversed sample!!... drums a bit to much upfront and a bit to much static for me... hmm when the vocal comes in it makes my think you got another sample than that we got... becouse i think i know the sample.. and where is your vocal tagg?

Beatinyo: Nice work! Happy to see that you reacted on your friend about the use of a external bass btw!... Beat gets a bit plain after a while but with a rapper on it that would be no problem... like it how you worked out your 4th or 8th bar.. so it isnt just the same part repeating over and over again.. drums are a bit static also...

Earl chambers: oo... the harmonics are outta tone... when the flute comes in that all changes (and makes me happy) i really cant stand the offkey parts sorry... uptempo vibe doesnt do it for me also... heared better beats from you i remember...

Jondis: I'm on a spaceship!!! I dont always like your beats but your so god damn creative... shits just crazy... That lfo work in the beginning is really dope... Drums are clean.. verry nice shaker... i want to see you try to make a pop hit becouse i think you would murder it... you definitly got ears/skills and a verry fast workflow (always one of the first) 9 outta 10!

Filozway: Dudeee... lol!!! epic frikkin epic how you overlayerd that high pitched part!!!... But why and 808? kit?? or am i wrong? Drums come out to cheesy on this one... if you would have payed more attention on the drum sounds it would have been really amazing (as usual.. ur sick) 7 outta 10!

And im going for the creativity vote this week (becouse there was external bass allowed).... My vote goes to JONDIS

It was between him and mellowyouth... but jondis always know to amaze me... dont always like his beats but i can definitly smell the creativity!

first have to put in my two cents about the bass creation......all I did to try and make bass where there is none was just time shift down until I basically only hear bass then see how I can filter and rock that....and my mix always sounds crappy I gotta apologize when I'm filtering I try to remember to leave room for the other sounds and I've been messing around with a compressor but still have not stumbled upon the blanket always mixes it right trick (any suggestions would be greatly appreciated).....but list this week, ya'll killed it:

Soul_up
Beatfux

GMG
Brotha B
Rowsedower
Dead Marauder
J Sense
S.F.T.

but my gut says:

Am I a Jack of all Trades??...... Nope!!....I like to write songs though.......are they good??...I don't know...

I have to choose between SFT and Jams beats. Both got that happy sound and good flow. SFT had better mixing, but I liked Jam's beat structure/build.

Areou - great track I would have probably voted for you but something was sounding unright with the kick drum to me, slighty distorted or something.
One tone - I really liked this track almost voted for it
For the recored I pretty much like everyones beats that post to these boards only a couple a week suck. All you regulars are extremely talented producers. I don't list a long line of mentions, but I have respect for all you veterans of the board and try to comment on every track.

Sorry guys, can't vote this week. I've been mad off and it wouldn't be fair.
Can't lie, this was my least favorite beat entry. I'm in the middle of learning new tricks and I'm all over the place
Thanks for all the vote mentions
And a special shoutout to Meerdat, I don't know about you guys but I love hearing criticism, good or bad. I need something to go on so I don't get stale
Good luck everyone
