    Yo.

    You replied so I have returned.

    0:23 that's a very creative speeding up of a sample. Works well as a fill.

    1:20-1:51 might be too long without there being any melodic elements. I can understand why you've done it but perhaps just a small bit of a guitar sample would help there.

    2:55 and we're starting to go eastern and very psychedelic.

    3:17 now it's proper dark Eastern and that rising delayed note at 3:17 is very cool. Dark bass and 3:33 it gets real intense before pulling back into the far out, high notes.

    3:46 is that Tuvan throat singing? Sounds a lot like it eg by the group Huun Huur Tu.

    " I really don't have that much experience, either mixing, mastering or sampling."

    Maybe that's true but it sounds as though you really do know what you're doing.

    This is really creative stuff and I hear it as being as much psychedelic music as it is hip hop. I'll comment on some of your other tracks now that I know you can and will reply. Some people on the site don't bother replying, which I find a bit rude.

    Take care.

    Thank you man, you do get the small details.

    0.23 was a cut from the main sample that I repeated and changed the pitch. That's what I'm loving in samples, you can actually re arrange it all

    1.20 was thought for a future rap but I do think I could have gone more creative there, at least for this instrumental version.

    3.17 Taking aside the main guitar riff sample, everything from this point on is from this very site. I know it's not great that I don't credit the artists, but the reason is, for my work to flow, i first download lots of random samples i like, and only later i'll see what fits where or what ideas it gives me. And after that point, with so many samples, is hard to just go and see all the file's names, come to this site, search, compare and see what the user name's are.

    3.46 is throat singing, a sample I downloaded from here

    Taking aside the main guitar riff sample, everything else is from this very site.

    Thanks for the comment man, it's nice to hear from someone more experienced that the tracks are working well mixing wise.

    I love asian and oriental sounds, I'll probably always use them in most songs.

    Hi. I've listened to a few of your tracks now and I really like them.

    I'm a big fan of stoner rock and I think it's very creative how you sample music from that genre and turn it into hip hop.

    This is another cool, chillout journey with a fat beat and lots of melody and intelligence. And some far out Eastern stuff in the second half that I absolutely love.

    I normally give long, detailed reviews but it seems that you don't really reply to people's comments so I won't say anymore for now.

    Congratulations.

    Thank your for the awesome comment. Been on looperman and producing this for less than a month, haven't been much active answering to comments, but I will now. Thanks for pointing it out to me.

    I'm glad you like the style, would love to hear more in detail from you. My production is probably subpar cause I really don't have that much experience, either mixing, mastering or sampling.

    I also don't use the best samples from stoner/psych, because they come from mp3 songs, not uncompressed formats.

    But I'm starting easy, trying to keep the "having fun" part above the rest for now.

    Thanks man, I just go with the flow, don't really care if a track suddenly stops being hip-hop, even though that's my starting point.

    Love your music on looperman btw, nice work.
