Description : The song features top vocals from Looperman member Braindedmusic.

The song is about how this guy is fed up, feeling down and tired of the city, with a contrasting uplifting chorus.

It has a really catchy flute melody as the main looped sample.

I added a variation of the main flute beat to climax upto the chorus and then changed to the second flute sample.

This is the final mastered version!!

    The sound of the scratch sample is fine, ive actually used the same exact sample in one of my songs before, what i did find helpful is a program called recycle.If youre not familiar, it basically takes your sample and allows you to cut it into slice so that you can then play it out on your midi controller of choice. pretty important hip hop tool if you ask me. you may be able to find another program that does something similar im pretty sure there are a lot of programs now that take .rex files

    im not really into all that stuff at the mo. I have a wav editor for editing and for mixing I use a software I wrote myself, Beatz Maker Evolution. If its worth while then il look into more professional tools and software, but at the moment Im just doing this in my spare time as it not exactly financially rewarding at present. The way I see it, its hard to break into the music industry without good backing or financial aid

    catchy tune, i like the vocal speedup. ive always had trouble getting that effect right. I think that the scratches could be changed up a bit, they are slighty off with the song. overall the mix of the song itself is great, it has a really good balance....not over compressed.

    Raf! babe I have to agree with spivkurl!! the vocals are awesome and the flute adds a nice touch but you should not let that flute play so much a part in the track and may I suggest perhaps a synth pad as an added touch? bring your bass and drum backwards a bit and put emphasis on the vocal and on the melody! Other than that if I had to rate this track on a scale from 1 to 10 I would defo give it a solid 8 for originality and creativity!!!! you know me just sayin!!!...........

    ok. the flute sample was main part of song, based on some hip hop tracks ive listened to, But it has a fade in, a variation which leads to the chorus and also the chorus had a different flute sample used which gives a break from tht loop.

    The original song the vocals were not so loud and the flute sample was more prominent. But the mastered version definitely has more louder and sharper vocals, which im happy with.

    Before the final mix was mastered it was heard alot of people and about 6 different sound engineers who all said it was fine, except a few things which were changed before the mastering. For example the "yesterday" vocal at the start and near the end was off beat and was corrected. The chorus vocals were also a bit off beat and this was fixed.

    maybe at some point i will do another mix, based on new feedback! But for time being most peeps seem to be happy with the mix.

    Awesome track man, but maybe you should try a second mix... I mean keep this mix for reference if you need to, but try to mix it again, from scratch, without pushing the faders too far ;)

    I love the way it's written though. Good idea on the chorus with this half-tempo break, the pitched voice gives it an extra feel I like a lot... Maybe I would have had a lil extra delay FX on the last words of the chorus, to make it shine a bit... But it's a matter of taste...

    Please get back at mixing it, because the song is just awesome...

    Peace.
    Chris.

    This is a really good song! I think the chorus works well! The flute is a nice touch! I agree that the mix could use some work, as the bass seems to push it into a distorting range. Part of your problem could be no headroom in the master, so your mp3 rendering is distorting. Just a thought. Nice track though!

    im loving the good feedback on here. I also realised it was the new bass line that was distorting the vocals. il remove or change it.

    I agree with Mahloo on the mix. I don't agree about the chorus though. I like it. (different strokes for different folks I guess) The mix for sure needs some work though. A good start! Can't wait to hear the finished product!

    The track has some potential but it needs serious work on the mix side. Very distorted.

    It could work well on the chorus with a female vocal. The one you currently is hard to take seriously because it's pitched.

    The song overall is very catchy and that's good. This could become big but as I've said it needs attention.

    what part is distorted, the vocals, bass or fllute sample?

    In terms of taking seriously, really? How many recent song can you take seriously? For me if it sounds good, il be playing it.

    I havent ventured into the realm of professional music mastering, so if you or anyone else can do this, you could really help out

    Im glad you like the new track. Can i ask your honest opinion. Do you think the chorus vocals fit in with the rest of the song. I was thinking of changing them, but no ones said it sounds bad yet, so just asking
