hey Mosaic,

this is simply a cool track. Reading the comments below was so enjoyable experience, I never expected to hear such funky sounds from you listening so much to your actual trance works. I am happy to discover some connections to ferryterry's works - he is my favourite performer on here!

very nice work on this little funky piece.

Best to you, Alex

Totally unexpected to hear this from you. It's almost a funk jazz fusion type song. The flute is fantastic to say the least. Nice job creating space within the song. The arrangement is solid and there are nice accents, dynamics and a variety of sounds to keep it fresh. I didn't hear the earlier version sorry, I can't compare it and make any comparisons.

The drums are snappy and funky, thought the bass could be a bit louder, I am a bass player so I usually tend to think that. :) I keep focusing on that flute, some tasty goodness there.

Well done mate, must say your trip into funk was a success. Off to check out your other new one!

every one has probably said what i would say. Haul of the One........One. Also i really like the flute. If you have'nt seen the documentary
Dancing In The Street: A Rock & Roll History, Episode. 9: Make It Funky
it is an aswesome lesson about funk. Im not sure outside links are allowed but it took me 2 seconds to find it goes for an hour so try not to catch the 5 minute clips.
thanks for sharing

The re-jigging and added beats pumped it up. The "sax" sounds kinda fake...enjoyed listening though.

Hi MrMosaic,
Good song. Very good work on the flute.
It flows nicely and adds a "70s" touch to the song which I like a lot (don't ask me why, but whenever I think to "funk" my minds automatically goes back to the 70s...)
"Bass-Drum" locking issue: probably yes... the loops don't match perfectly.

One interesting comment (close to what MrUrbanShokker mentioned in point 4): I just returned from a jam-sess with my "drummer of choice" and I was commenting with him on a funky riff which we played for almost 10 minutes.
I told him: "to make a cool funk riff, I think of a riff and then I start removing notes until I let the bare-bones of the riff stand out"
So yes: specially from a bass point of view, funk is "removing the un-necessary" and let the riff shine in its beauty! :-)
Thanks again for sharing the song with us: beside my "un-needed" comments the song is good.
Looking forward to hearing a new version which will be "perfect" :-)
Ciao, Domenico

Hey Dom

Mate thank you for a great in-depth review of this one, listening back to it again just now, agree the bass not meshing well (or could be better) with the beat, plus couple of other elements could combine better, will look at this one again in the near future, but not just yet, if going back to it too soon will stuff track up, something I don't want to do, which I seem to do lately :(
Killed hundreds of decent tracks trying to make them better, so now learn to give some breathing space before going back to look at them, again many thanks friend, so much appreciated...Peace n Respect...Mos...

The Jigg is up!! I concur with the comments below. (it does seem to come together better towards the end. I like the beat from FT, his drumming is always awesome. Percussion wise it needs some more high hats in a syncopated style.
Here is a funk tune I did for Joe's funk Contest that he never judged yet!!.
https://www.looperman.com/tracks/detail/163779#comments
I it I de-construct funk in a minimalist way in 6/8 time signature. You can hear the high hats in the middle of the tune that I was describing. Keep at this one it's coming along nicely.

Hi Steve

Mate thank you for reviewing this version, pleased you like the changes so far, will check out your link shortly, and try to see what you are saying about this one that would help...Don't know if I will do anymore just yet mate, have a tendency to screw up tracks lately when going back to change them, which I don't want to happen here, but will do more to it for sure, suppose helps when your head is in a good place, which mine hasn't been of late, so will definitely look again soon...Peace n much Respect friend...Mos...

I'm enjoying this version much as well! I think that overall I prefer the other version, mostly because of the timing contained within. While urbanshokker's comment was very generalized and cliche when it comes to funk music, it did have some good advice. It seemed like in the last main section, your bass and drums grooved pretty well, but some of the earlier parts seemed to have the bass and drum loops starting on different beats or something. By the end I was definitely feeling it. I think that the instruments are what makes these two tracks "funky" for the most part, and that is important. Thank you for sharing these with us! Oh BTW, I noticed when I click your name below the track title, it would normally show all of your tracks, but instead it says there are no tracks available - maybe should contact Shan, as it seems like a code issue. Hope you are well!

Hey Friend

Mate thank you for reviewing this version as well as the 4 on floor version, had mixed thoughts with the reviews, mixture of good and ok ones lol...Thinking where you mentioned about the bass, I have added some extra in parts so that might give it a more completed part then other parts of the track, will try to do some more to this one over time, but not doing anymore just yet, I normally just completely stuff up track when going back to them too soon, Got a review from Joe MrFunktastic, he was happy with what I had achieved within the track, so that made my day for me, guessing everyone has different idea's on what funk should be, to me this has a funky groove feel about it, so that's why I put it under the funk genre, so to get a pass from Joe blew me away...Peace n Respect mate...Mos...PS: health still up and down at moment, had injections for shoulder, but still not the best at moment :(
Will check out what you mentioned about avatar...Thank you...

Looks like our friend urbanshokker knows his stuff Mos...some interesting observations there that I`m making note of myself as I have tried a couple of funk mixes of my own that I sure didn`t impress myself with ( I do love the genre)...must say your effort is a whole lot better than mine turned out...interesting to hear the jazzy flute lead bits and the bass loop is a reminder of some of the old school funk I like.....Ive been looking around for some good sax leads (any advice?) for a mix I have on the burner right now...may have to resort to my limited keyboard skills & see if I can push put something approaching genuine...anyway...this one makes for good listening and I think that is the ultimate test...I wouldn`t be a very good source of advice on the genre my friend but I think you have gotten some of the best already...our friend Joe Funktastic`s comments would be interesting...way to go...keep on...I`ll try & join you in the genre one of these months....Ed

Hey ED

Mate thank you once more for checking out my works, seems to be getting mixed thoughts in reviews, Joe reviewed track and was happy enough and giving credit for the effort I have done, considering my first attempt into the genre, have to admit wasn't looking forward to Joe reviewing, knowing how much he is into the funk genre, so was blown away when he enjoyed the track, guessing it could be better, but not touching it again just yet, way things been here, I have killed more tracks then completed, so if going back to it again, could just completely stuff it up...So best leaving it just for now...Peace n Respect ED...Mos...

Congrats on your first trip into funk. I like the track but heres some advice from an oldschool old man funkateer who goes back several decades and is a professional musician (as in - playing bass and singing has been my career/job :D )

1) Funk isnt four on the floor - four-on-the-floor is disco

2) You are using a bass loop. This is fine but the drums and bass parts really have to lock up - If you have a solid phat bass/drum lock, you can do almost anything else you want with it - but those parts have to lock, too...Your guitar loop is a bit off from hitting the accents

3) Funk is a very heavy downnbeat (The ONE)....Always hit the ONE hard

4) This is the most important: What makes any song funky isnt the notes but the space (the 'rests')between the notes....Funk has to breathe

Hope any of this comes in handy.......With all that said, your track really isnt funky, but it is a cool track....liked it lots....best of luck

Hey Urban

Many thanks for stopping by and reviewing this one for me, also thank for a great in-depth review, maybe not everyones idea of funk for sure, but happy enough with it being my first ever attempt, knew it would get some mixed reviews as with the other version with the 4 on floor would, guess I do things a little diff then most lol, but when attempting this genre again will try to follow some of the steps you posted here, again thank you for a great review...Peace n Respect...Mos...

Description : Updated 12/2/2022. This is an interesting redo of a funky and fun composition. I gave it more polish by switching to a different drum kit, swapped the flute solo for a synth, then infused more flavor into the guitars, bass and organ. Then lastly tweaking the final master. Can you tell the difference? Let me know. Enjoy.

A classic funk track from the 70's, featured in Cheech and Chong's "Up In Smoke".
I have always loved this song and also love to perform it. It's a fun one with a really tight groove.

I am performing vocals, bass guitar, rhythm guitar, harmonica and the casaba. MIDI instruments used are drums, timbales, cowbell, shaker, horns and tenor sax.

Description : The thing is I have found a new style to me. Its a kind of funk or hip hop with a bit of Eastern flow but the quality is really sh*t so! I hope someone can make something better out of it and work on mixing! Im bad in making music because Its just fun but I have a real good Idea (in my Oponion) but I cant make something high quality out of it... and I hope someone will think the same. The Track is really really crap but I like it because I have do something that was in my mind.
