Oh wow bro, this was great! Funny thing is I literally released a song not that long ago called "Like This" on my SoundCloud... XD

I enjoyed listening to this one! I think that considering you are working with these people over the internet and not in person, that this is a very cool effort! This sort of music is something which I always appreciate more in a live setting, but I liked it all the same. People mentioned RATM already, and I can definitely hear the similarities. I honestly haven't liked any of their stuff after the debut album in 1992, but that's just personal preference. You should be proud of this collaboration. You guys need to get together and tour!

"This is some pretty good stuff, with some balls. It's almost like a much lighter version of Rage Against The Machine, the best band of their type of music. Maybe they kind of even invented a genre. "

Static beat me too it, first thought in my head was a better softer Rage. Very likable song, great work.

What's up TeeGee? Wow! This track is kicking
up some dust! From one bassist to another, that bassline kicks ass! I know how some rock tunes seem to be "devoid of bottom", but that certainly was not the case here. The tune has a "Rock / Rap-ish" feel to it.
And I thought that it was a great all around
Production. Certainly one of my favs...

Gtreat Work!

Hey man, thanks for listening, glad you like it. Yes, that bass sound is kicking ass, although I did not play it...it is bhunt who does that. I only play the guitar and do the mixing. However, we make sure in this band we got a good bass and drum sound. I like everything to be heard, like in a rock band ;) .

Wow, I was not expecting this. That bass tone is killer. I've never actually heard such a successful collaboration as this, especially between so many users. Definitely impressed all on its own.

This music is definitely unique. I really like the feel, has the vibes of chill but also grungy. The vocal sounds great, almost a bit too much delay but the words remain intelligible, which is good. I like it, almost abstract. Great stuff! The SFX sounds were a great addition and really added a nice, different feel to the track. Where did you get those sounds from?

TeeGee1965 replied 29th May 2016 - 8 years ago
Hey Brado, thanks for listening and commenting.

Yes, the bass tone is killer :) I think the secret to this collaboration is that we 3 have been working on quite a few songs already, so we get better at it. In addition, all of us are active at wikiloops.com, so we collaborate with othe people on weekly basis, that does let us hone our production skills. Try it out, you might like it ;) .

For the sound effects, I mainily use freesound.org , but if I am after something I will look at other places too, like soundbible. There are lots...

Anyway, thanks for listening and appreciate the comments :)

Yo.

This is some pretty good stuff, with some balls. It's almost like a much lighter version of Rage Against The Machine, the best band of their type of music. Maybe they kind of even invented a genre.

Anyway, bass is fat and dirty and pretty tight. Drums are real solid and there are lots of nice guitar touches. Good wah playing that sits well behind the vocal and not interfering with it. But I can still hear the guitar just fine.

Actually, I can hear every element really well.

2:31 guitar solo comes at just about the right time as I needed a break from the vocal. There seems to be quite a bit of swirling reverb and maybe some crowd cheers in there. Oh and some police sirens. Am I right?

Then back for another chorus and Like This vocal repeat.

Good grooving stuff. Sounds very much like a live band.

TeeGee1965 replied 28th May 2016 - 8 years ago
Hey man, thanks for listening - your comments are always appreciated.

Yes, I did put in some crowd noises, police sirens, I wanted to give a feeling of an angry mob, maybe workers protesting against cuts, police coming in, you know, related to what Grotesk was singing about. I had to search quite a bit on the net for something that fits, and I did not want it to be too loud.

So yes, we try to sound like a live band although we never play in the same room (or even the same continent :D )

Cheers, TG

Hey mate

Not a genre I know to much about, being mainly a trance producer, but enjoy this very much, yep agree about the vocals, things (eg life)do get frustrating at times lol, great vocalist, liking the tone of the vocal, very enjoyable listen my friend, will check out more of yours in the future for sure...fav'd...Peace mosaic...

Thanks for listening, appreciated.

I decided some time ago to make hiphop based music with real instruments, at least where it comes to bass and drums and guitars. You know, people used to say that hiphop and rap is not music, I disagree. But music for me also means instruments. So we have done a few of those already, and it seems people like it. So we will continue! Thanks for listening!

Totally digging this! Lyrics are great, vocals are a bit raw and wide but that might be exactly what you were going for. The effects were great and added to the track. Great live feel to the track and not overproduced which I like a lot.

Great job Fellas!

Hey Wayne,

thanks for listening and commenting, appreciate it. Yes, I roughed and distorted the vocal track a little, it was on purpose. Good spot, that. We like this song a lot, it is simple in a way but came out nice in the end :)

You got a good live band sound going in this one TG (I find that hard to do sometimes)..the band sounds tight and the vocal is nicely placed...sounds good just the way you did it....well done to everyone...Ed

TeeGee1965 replied 24th May 2016 - 8 years ago
Thanks Ed :) Yes it is amazing considering I have never met or played with these guys in the same room...but we got a good system going for our recording process, and we are learning all the time. And to tell you the truth, I am basically flying in the dark with the mixing process, I pull on some levers and push some buttons, ask the guys what they think, do some adjustments and that's it. TG :)

You better use the 'has lyrics' page for this...I'm interested but my hearing English is very poor...my reading English too but there is time to guess what the hell is about this? :-)
Music is outstanding, very atmospheric...bass tune is one of the best I've heard here...

Danke Danke, thanks for listening.

Regarding the text, I haven't got the lyrics as Grotesk did not publish them on his Acapella. I understood most of it, but even I am not 100% sure.

We will do more of that, always working on more stuff. But we might fire the bass player, he is getting all the praise and my ego can't take it :D . Just joking, I will tell him, he deserves it. Look forward listening to your next song !

Dig it...not sure why nobody has not Faved this yet but I will gladly be the First. Vocals fit well with the very catchy music. I like the first "Like this" @ 2:22 but In my opinion the others after that initial one kind of detract from the smoothness of everything else in the song. The instruments are fucking clicking and jamming so sometimes less is more. Just my 2 cents since I dig the track. Nice job.

Thanks for the download.

Thanks for your comment Topvega, much appreciated (even if you did not fav it in the end ;) ). Just joking, as long as a few people listen to it I am cool with it. Thanks for your comments about the "like this" on 2:22 - to be honest we took the vocal track from Grotesk: http://www.looperman.com/acapellas/detail/1039/like-this-by-grotesk-96bpm-hip-hop-acapella

and did not cut or change it, I only did some work on the sound of it. I rarely touch the vocal tracks out of respect to the original creator, but maybe I should. Your observation is not the first time, it was mentioned on our other tracks as well. Food for thought, really appreciate it!!
It is the 4th or 5th song I am doing with the same bass and drum players, so we are getting to know each other better, and it does sound tighter now. Cheers, TG

Description : This is my newest creation, at a stage very near to completion. No third-party mastering or mixing, as with all my tracks. Just have to fix a few tiny things. I FINALLY WAS ABLE TO MIX EVERYTHING IN THE SAME SESSION. This song has all human-played instruments - no quantization or MIDI! My brother does all the vocals except for the interlude part, which I do. My other brother plays the rhythm guitar (a Gibson Les Paul Custom - only one of 12 in the world!!) and I play the accompanying guitar (a Johnny Mar Jag and PRS). He has a lot of guitars :P A good friend of ours, Ronnie, plays the bass and another friend, Freddie, plays the drums. The drum track was done in one take (had to use an electric drum set due to time constraints - but acoustic kits are so much better). Overall, pretty satisfied with the result. Let me know your thoughts.

Description : The first track I sing on. Cheap stage mic & no fancy plugins. Heavily guitar laden to the point it's got a bit of a shoegaze thing going on. I pulled the lyrics out of my ass & yes, they're a bit silly.

Description : BIG UPDATE 26/02/2014 - So, this was an 18 min track that I have now successfully split in two. 2nd half I uploaded a few weeks ago (Things That Should Always Be, with the bouncy 2 min reggae intro). This is the first half, which has a new mix, a mega chill, meditative ending and a little jazz thrown in for good measure. Takes a few minutes for beat to really kick in. Constantly evolving electric guitar, bass guitar, acoustic drums and lead banjo driven by fat, busy 80BPM grooves with a bit of a reggae and shuffle feel. Also: synth choir voices, dulcimer, violin, cello, shimmering pads. Builds up gradually to nice and rocking and then gets taken back down for the big comedown chill. I really don't know what sort of genre this is except 'far out'. I think it sounds more like a live band than one guy playing instruments and manipulating a DAW. Not my best track but a bit of blissful, sunny island fun. Real positive vibe here so I hope you give it a chance to unfold and unfurl. Sit back, clear your schedule and immerse yourself in these trippy sonic experiments cooked up deep in my off-planet underground laboratory. I have to send the MP3 to Earth via space courier (not cheap).

Description : This track was like the inhale after an exhale of aggressive industrial-electro-sludge tracks that I had put out that summer and fall. This was the more reserved, and introspective winter track. It's nothing spectacular, but I still really enjoy it. I hope you do too. Take care. V.
