I'd like to give props to all the folks that dropped something dope this week...my shortlist isn't very short:

 

So much dope shit to vote on this week...really could be anybody's week to take it.  Guess it comes down to personal taste, and I have to say MNSTRMKK really stood out to me...that bassline, the drum work, the chops.  Just insane.  If you made the not-so-short short-list, props.  The competition was off the hook this week.

Lot of dope beats (even if it felt like I listened to Barney Kessel a bit too many times).

 

Came down to Mnstrmkk and Billinski this week for me.

 

Have to go with Billiniski, that entire beat was crazy, but the second half just took it to the next level.

lots of quality stuff this week.  My short list would be way to long, going to go top 3 for me as :  El-R, Scottie Royal, Lexiuss

 

Really liked the large amount of variation this week, from BPM to feel to sound choice - made it very interesting for sure.

Come on folks...I know it's a lot of tracks, but VOTE.  We should have at least NEAR the same number of votes as tracks...this is sad.

So far it's 10 votes, and 75 tracks submitted.  That's pretty sad.

It's not surprising though, just look at the disparity in views/replies from past battle/vote threads. Granted there's a bit more discussion in the battle threads, there's still a trend. There always seems to be more discussion and views in the battle threads.

I didn't enter this week knowing I wouldn't get the time to listen and vote...

Mayyyybeeee (just a crazy idea) we implement a new rule (I know, like that'll ever happen, right?)

Where you HAVE to vote the previous week to enter the current week... That means we won't get as many newbies who just post one beat and disappear, they actually have to listen/vote and join the conversation the week before they can even enter. No more time killer microwave beats either etc.

Would be simple to post in the current weeks thread the 'eligible entrant list' just by counting who voted the week before and putting it up.

An extra 15 minutes of ground work to ensure less time wasters seems like a good trade off. Also the amount of beats per week would probably go from around 75 to around 25 and they would probably be higher quality too...

Anyway, crazy thought. Obviously the current system is broke AF

But whatevs.

Peace!

Yea, honestly I've only been listening to beats posted in the forums, to help me manage my time on thursdays, which I justified to myself because I thought we made a rule.. . .  .   .

So i didnt even hear mnstrmkk's track til i saw yall vote for it.  its dope!  [edit - but guess it didnt grab me in the moment...i stand corrected!]

but

 my shortlist was:

KSG

MA Beats (keeps showing up)

OddSimia

h@rness

Lexius

MatMel

.phtistic

 

plenty good besides that, but i needed to narrow it down to JoaGymshoe and my vote:: :  :   :    :

(with apologies to MNSTR - post in the forums!)

...I was thinking of putting a standard comment in every contenders entry reminding them to vote...

 

...Whether I want it to read: 'please don't  forget to vote'  or 'vote or die'  I'm undecided on ;) ... prolly s'thing inbetween...

 

...I personally don't feel like keepin a tally of who voted and who didn't...

 

 

...plus enforcing it would be a b*tch...  no enviable task...

 

 

... It consistantly says POST TO THIS FORUM in the Start Topic now..  so just listening to those beats  is fine imo...

Thats a pretty good idea.  Me being a noob on this board, also my first beat battle here, I found it to be a head scratcher, the ratio of submissions to votes.  Why participate if you are not going to PARTICIPATE?  I listened to every damn entry.  I just let the list play as I was cleaning, then turned to see who made it if it made me groove.

 

Anyways, surprised that I made a couple lists my first time and the amount of great beats this week. Thanks.

Sorry about not being as active (or not really active at all) this month guys, its been busy as hell. Tried to scrap something together for this week but a rushed beat never sounds good so I just decided to DQ myself lol

Peace!

About this, I'm thinking that there should be a way to get a list of everyone on the forum, and then we just make a private group on soundcloud that you need to be invited to by one of the mods to join, if that makes sense.

 

Also, I remember there was one of us that used to make a playlist of all the week's valid entries, can't remember who exactly (or maybe I was dreaming :P), maybe we could do that as well and then the person add the playlist to the topic or whatever. Once again, I don't know if what I'm saying makes a lot of sense but ya

 

Sorry for the long-ish post :)

AreouTheAstronoutMF (dooooope, could've been longer)
stanscrates (nice groove)
Banizzz (smooth)
` GRIFTY (that bass though, and those percussion thingies, brutal, you can always tell apart a GRIFTY track)
MNSTRMKK (awesome work on this)
QodaK (kept it simple, absolutely loved the vibe)

Breakmaster Cylinder (wow, just wow, this was on a whole other level, acapella fits perfectly)

Also, some people upload two beats, don't do that unless you make clear it doesn't count as an entry like Scottie Royal.
