    Hi again.

    You can monetize if your tracks if you like and maybe no one will notice the samples. But you might start to get some problems and then maybe you'd be forced to remove the illegal samples. I'm not quite sure how it works.

    Personally, I don't think you're competing at all with Sungrazer and the music is quite different so I think you're doing something creative with their guitar parts. They might even be pleased to hear what you've done.

    I forgot to answer your collaboration message. For now I will say no as I'm quite reluctant to work with people I don't know online. However, I have started doing something with two guys I've known for a few years through this site (but it's going slowly). I'll remember your offer and see how I feel in the future though I would much prefer to collaborate in person rather than online.

    I have a new heavy cello track here:

    Nuance Is Futile

    Take care.

    Yeah I understand.

    About the collab, net is the only way, being so far apart. If you ever feel it, let me know, I love getting other people tracks that I like it and just mess with them xd.

    Hi again.

    "would love to hear your reply regarding the copyright."

    I think it's pretty simple - taking music directly from other people's songs is clear copyright infringement. However, as always, they have to find out that you've done it. So, as a guy just making music and not selling it, the copyright holder of the Sungrazer material may never hear one of your tracks or even find out that you've used that material without first asking permission.

    But, if one of your tracks does start to make money, the Sungrazer people could come after you, asking for some money or for you to stop selling the track.

    I'm no expert but there are quite a few ways this could go. But, if you remain a completely unknown artist just putting some tracks online for a relatively small audience, my guess is that no one will ever care that you sampled Sungrazer. Maybe don't worry about it for now. The choice is yours...

    I agree that it's cool and creative that you sample stoner rock-related bands for use in hip hop. That is unusual.

    Great to hear you liked my track and congrats again on your track.

    That's more or less my thinking. I won't try to monetize them.
    Thanks for your time man, really appreciate it.
    Will keep up with new tracks from you

    Hi again.

    I'm a big fan of Sungrazer and their two albums. A pity they only made two.

    Anyway, your track:

    Little vocal sample "Let go, baby" is actually pretty cool. And then we have a fat, fat bassline and chilled beat. Guitar fits really well though perhaps you shouldn't sample music from other artists' songs. You do it well but there are, of course, copyright issues. Perhaps try to stick to either using legal samples or making more of your own sounds.

    0:41 I really like that new instrument's notes and vibe.

    This is very cool, fat, grooving head nodding psychedelic hip hop. Guitar works perfectly. There should be more of a crossover between psychedelic stoner rock and hip hop. Here's one by me that has a connection to some of those genres:

    Right Place Wrong Century

    https://www.looperman.com/tracks/detail/146210

    2:08 a bit of a change, with some high vocal samples working nicely. They're very trippy.

    2:45 I think I hear some low tabla/udo drums. Nice.

    3:13 a little bit of saxophone is a pleasant surprise. Nice to hear that instrument come out on its own at the end. The only problem is that the ending is too abrupt. It cuts off too harshly so just let it drift away, maybe with some big delay/reverb on it.

    Good work again...

    Hey man, thanks for the big review.

    I realize there may be copyright issues but, that's what I actually what I try to do, get samples from music I like that is really not known in hip-hop or never used before. Because the thing is, there's various ways to do hiphop and one of the most used, is direct sampling from songs. Almost all great artists do it, they sample a bar from a song, put it on loop and add to it. Snoop dogg, eminem... everyone does it.
    Not sure what it implies with copyright but, I'm doing this songs with no profit, no selling, just making them, and making them available on the net for free.
    So, not sure how it goes with the law, would like to know.

    Maybe because I'm a fan of stoner, even though Sungrazer doesn't do it, many do, I like weird endings, abrupt, endings that people don't expect, they usually make me listen to the ending or song again. So, its kind of a personal preference.

    As for your song, I'm listening as I write this, it's actually incredible, I really like the style, very similar, understand why you remembered it. I'll write again there when I finish.

    Thanks again man, would love to hear your reply regarding the copyright.

    That guitar was meant to go with that drum. Seriously, that is good stuff. I like this better than most mainstream hip hop stuff I hear on the radio.

    Yeah, I think so too. My problem with mainstream hiphop is the drums and bass, being so punchy, so full all the time. Stoner, like older hip-hop, is more soft, more details, more dynamics, it's not as in your face but I prefer it a lot, more natural, breaths and flows more.

    I'm glad you like it man :)

    Hello Darknives
    Real cool Hip Hop - Trip Hop tune
    Well made and nicely mixed. I really enjoyed the listen.
    Much better then the most Hip/Trip Hop instrumentals that arrived here on looperman. And it works great also without any vocals. But i am sure that there will be someone who will do something to/with this special track.

    stay tuned
    joe

    I wouldn't say other instrumentals are not as good, specially cause I'm still so inexperienced at this.
    But the thing is, most mainstream hiphop instrumentals made now a day, follow a very bland and defined sound, they sound all the same, it's not really my style, I don't really like it, so I understand you.

    Thank you for your comment :)

    Somethings just fit perfect, like that sample and that beat. I was lucky it happened almost randomly when trying some loops.
