    Hallowed greetings, Rubik's Crube.

    Intro drums are something different for you. Nice, steady tom groove then a weird vocally exclamation and some occasional, good bits of brass.

    Bassline enters and stuff is building nicely now, with the drums still sitting steady. Reverse cymbal is acceptable.

    1:06 quite a cool little melody.

    1:35 fat beat and those big drums introduced a little earlier make more sense now. Lots of percussion in this, something we both like to do.

    Rather funky wah guitar works well, as does the return of that 1:06 melody that I'm having trouble describing.

    Some second wah funk g a little later. All the different elements fit well together and shit is pretty funky. Really well produced as everything is rather clear and easy to hear.

    4:09 ending is fairly weird but powerful and something different as well as being very unfunky. So that's a good contrast. I would say it cuts off too abruptly right at the end but I've said it so many times before about other tracks of yours that there's probably no point mentioning it.

    I didn't really hear anything spooky or related to Halloween in this. I just heard good times grooves and cheerful funk.

    Take care...

    Great track here Steve!

    The drums are used very nicely here and this track certainly has a lot going on. I think this track would work great for a 1980's based Halloween party. Definitely would see lots of people trying to get their groove on. I'd be the one attempt to and fail horribly. Ending up on social media thanks to my awful dancing lol.

    Thanks for sharing this groovy track!

    Reply by crucethus

    Hey thanks for listening. lol on the dancing. Eighties theme party it is! Im going as as a Miami Vice Character (Sniff). It was a fun track to make. And now it spurred aa creative streak with 4 songs in one week so far.
    thanks for stopping bye.

    time for some crucethus! i would say it stayed in the jazzy realm and the halloween realm alltogether. nicely done. I have read the thread that said something about making a halloween type of arrangement and well you nailed that :D good stuff keep it comming

    Thanks KB ,I think I did stay in the funky zone with a touch of darkness. Im a little flummoxed by all the accolades for this tune, but hey, the public is a better judge than I am sometimes on my music. Thanks for the props and hanging out in the Cru-Zone

    My first sentence should be the same as Danke's but I don't want to be accused of plagiarism, yet the fact is that I'm still hardly catching up with all good things on Looperman.
    And no doubt...you're one of the most established creators
    of those good things. Your new brilliant work only confirms that! Thumbs up for you Steve...with a 'fav'!:)

    I loved this whole thing! I used to play trumpet, and the muted trumpets brought back alot of memories. Thanks for sharing this song!

    Reply by crucethus

    Cool about the trumpets. I wanted some brass to give that Dixie funeral vibe. I also experimented with some reverb spaces with the muted trumpet around 2:50 to give depth and bring in the rhodes piano jazz chords. thanks for commenting.

    I agree with Silverman, very Tom Waits.

    I'm liking the tremolo effect.. I fucking love tremolo.

    The mix is very tasty, particularly the snare :D

    I want to hear some vocals on this, with the right guy or gal this'd be even more fantastic.

    I'm having trouble spotting anything problematic.

    The composition of the ended was just superb, fantastic dude, well done :)

    Thanks Metabolic. This little -yeah Ill do a halloween track for you (took over 3 and a half hours) is finding some legs. New software and a new computer is helping me with the process. Thanks for stopping bye.

    Thanks PHD guy from Miami. So put some of your work on here. Ask Questions, we are all cool and will give u advice if your willing to learn. You can learn so much from the musicians on this site and understand what we do as loopers (arrangers). But you will find that you will have knowledge to give us as well, and thats the cool part. The give & take. Welcome to our community.

    For some reason, I imagine this being background music to a video where the camera pans all around a human-grinding factory.

    I have no idea why, but the track is good enough to make me think about what this could be used for, and to actually envision something in my head is great! Well done Cru, great job!

    Hey Steve...groovin goblins man, choice arrangement and an excellent mix, I really dig those horn stabs, trombone me thinks and trumpet mutes for sure, the more this track progresses the more expansive it becomes with a top line end piece to boot, great work mate!..while we're on the subject of Halloween I'm going to make a complaint..now I know Americans didn't invent it but you definitely made it your own, so how the flippin heck did it migrate down to Oz? because of Murica's infatuation with it that's how (seeing as everything that happens stateside gets adopted here sooner or later) so this time every year I get a knock on my door by pesky kids with bedsheets over their heads and I say something like "don't you kids realise this is Australia and your being manipulated by the great satan America!...and they reply " Is this a trick?" (true) lol cheers Dave

    Reply by crucethus

    Really, complaint, because every Halloween I just park a white van out front with a Pedo in it and tell the children, you can have all the candy you want! You just have to get it away from the Pedo in the white van before he gets you.
    I no longer live in the sepo-murican society you are so dis-avowed too. I have been a Canadian citizen now for a few years. lived here with my wife for 7 years and thought the ehh? would have given that away. But you really cant hear my NY accent any more as I have learned to hide it with my generic Canadian accent. Unlike the Aussie accent which sounds sometimes like its been F***ed by a east Londoner only to be raped by a Geordie on Parkinson's disease medicine. (A touch too much???) It (Halloween) came to the Great Southern Land, because its fun for one day a year to dress up as something different and weird. The more conservative the land the more fun you will have on Halloween (unless you are an evangelical, or Jehovahs witness). Alas in this politically correct world we live in, that kind of fun WILL NOT BE TOLERATED! so sorry for exporting our fun.....
    hey some things you will never hear about Australia (tongue in cheek)
    Is that a Vintage Wallaroo trail wine, I only drink that with my fois gras, and Shawarma.
    Would you like some more Vegemite Monsieur?
    Live Free...or die from everything that will kill you in Australia!!
    Yes officer, that sheep was coming on to me!!
    What is the difference between an Australian wedding and an Australian funeral?

    One less drunk at the funeral

    I could go on.... but I am a Canadian now and I must adhere to politeness at all cost of seeming not polite to the international community.
    if you feel your culture has been slighted at all I am obligated to say I am Sorry.
    Justin Trudeau is also obligated to apologize to you..
    Thats are way
    Also Justin Beiber might Felate you...Also our way..(not sure why yet, but I am assimilating)

    Is it necrophilia if they're still moving though?

    Reply by crucethus

    If your the one moving them, then I would have to say...mmmmn yes! If they are moving because the groove is so powerful it transcends death, then I hereby charge you with Funkophillia. Your sentence is to resurrect the Zap band featuring Roger Troutman
    or to listen to Extremes Get the funk out a 1000 times in a row.
    your choice for your own personal hell.

    I should have listened to this before I got farting around playing the one I just posted...but I went mellow before I even got the old Strat picked up...like the classic funk guitar stuff of course and with the cool drum kit & your synth elements it makes for a totally awesome parade...even us living could enjoy it enough to take a chance of joining in (I aint got much brain left anyway)....Fab stuff Steve my man...as always...great listening out this way......Ed

    Reply by crucethus

    Thanks Ed, join the black parade of the half brained zombie like voodoo encrusted soldiers of funk as we give it to you dark like on this spookiest of spooky nights yet to come. (sic. queue the evil laughter, maniacally)and if you dont have much brain left, then your safe from the brain eating zombies. As they won touch your brain, but they will devour your soul. (ooh that went all dark, didnt it) Anyhow, glad u enjoyed this one.

    I picture an undead disco taking place around a bonfire complete with disco balls, flashing lights and alot of zombies grooving out. 'All Hallows Funk 2016' :p Is that Donna Summers I see getting down? I love hearing the different genres with halloween themes. Now I want to see what pic this gets paired with! Very cool!

    Reply by crucethus

    Voodoo Discos are where its at my friend.
    Donna summer who passed in 2012 would be prime fodder for that ghoulish vibe you dreamed about you sick bastard. I think youve been hittin on the dead. You are formally charged with one count of necrophilia in the funkiest degree!

    Hey, Cru. I'm digging this. What an idea - funky and spooky at the same time. that has got to be a first. i like that last section - it is an unexpected bit of darkness and effective.

    I will go over to Wobbin's thread now and comment a little over there as well.

    I have your email also and will respond to that. Have a thought which piece might be the fit.
