The Wig Master - I really liked what you were trying to do here, but it seems like this beat is just screaming for some open spaces. Alos the organ bits are abrasive. It's a really interesting track though, even more experimental than usual. Props for using the samples only.
Chaz - I didn't think it sounded that bad...the kicks were bland...it's alright. nothing really much happens though. Def could use some EQ work.
Maticulous - I love the pans...great sound to this beat. The drums are a little too standard sounding or something. Man I would love if those pans switched directions...that would have been cool. Great sample work, i really like this one. starts to sound slightly random after a while...good work though man!
LUK - you used the same chop i did, for your main loop...lol. nice. that ratchet thing sounds over compressed or something. I like it but would have liked a little more out of the samples as far as a melody goes. The kicks sounded...ok i guess. slightly bland. I'm likin it. thanks for helpin Jin out with my link...
Jayred - nice pic for this beat...um. yeah the samples and drums don't go together terrificly. when you start with those keys it sounds a little out of place with the rest of the beat. Overall I'm diggin the vibe in my headphones. Some low frq sounds in there. When it goes to keys and drums onlyi had a head nod going. The main strings sample didn't do it for me though.
Ren - yeah I love this beat too...those 808kicks in there are nicely placed... my only critique is that the loops are a little short and slightly repetitive. besides that it's a great sound, niiiice work!!!
Dante Lewis - fuck that i'm not listening to someone who voted for themself. that's just arrogant. i'm sure it sounds dope, i'm sure all your myspace friends will love it. (edit: i just got your myspace friend request, I was gonna turn it down but your Pants "tribute" avater was irresistible...lol...but i'm still boycotting your beat cuz you voted for yourself
Doot - I don't think many people have heard yr beat, the link is bad and the track is called STMB53. LOL...anyway I like your beat (used the t!llman link). The drums sound a little rigid, but in a good way like james pants sort of. I think this beat has a nice bounce too it. Sounded good in the headphones....nice live feel.
Potencia - Nice intro. This beat takes you a journey. Sounds like JINESIS drums...haha. Those first horn chops sounded too melodically basic to me, like some amateur playing a synth with two fingers. Since I typed that sentence about 4 other loops have come and gone. You did chop the shit out of this. Nice mixing, it all sounds cohesive. anyway there was nothing in this beat that jumped out and grabbed me, but I still think it was pretty hot.
Cralias - like the skipping stuttering drums. the lead sample was a popular choice this week, you did a pretty good job with it. I like the second part of the beat better. has some nice moments in there...whoa crazy panning shit in the end...i think it was dope.
TKurata - why can't this mf'er use myspace? still boycotting it i guess...
JINESIS - there was a VH1 Behind the Music about Jinesis on YouTube this week, it was fun stuff...lol. Weird intro. whoa nice drums!! would like to hear something different from your kicks, though. that is dope, man. Love the march feel to the kicks...are you gonna let them march for a while?...cmon do it! anyway it's a nice drum pattern. Some low frequency sound in there, blends well with the rest. It all sounds dope, man, it's gonna be hard to decide between you and Ren...damn you didn't let those kicks march on for a few bars that would have been dope...
Gotta go with...Ren
. I think Jin's beat was very close but I am starting to hear this similarity in the tone of Jin's beats that is bothering me a little. Kind of hard to explain. Maybe it's those pitched down kicks, but I would like to hear something with a more upbeat vibe from you Jin.
Some good stuff this week i'm thinkin...I've been moving furniture all day and am ready to zone out for awhile...have a good weekend...
