    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!

    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 :)

    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

    crucethus
    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 can´t 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 it´s 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 it´s 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 Jehovah´s 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..
    That´s are way
    Also Justin Beiber might Felate you...Also our way..(not sure why yet, but I am assimilating)

    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.

    Cru, you know I had to Funkin' respond to this funky GEM! Maybe I am a bit bias in favor of the Funk. You can almost predict what I would say. And the wording would be very long in my own words filled with praises, accolades, and virtual hi-5's. So I will just skip to the end of what could of been a very long winded review. Sweet funkiness Cru man, it was a very enjoyable listen. You made the Godfather proud today, well done! Joe

    Hey Joe, thanks for the props, you the master of funk, and getting the ¨godfather´s¨ blessing is always a treat. Fun tune to make. It was in my head, I want to make a funk tune, and I want to make it spooky sounding. I have been learning some new software and some new VST´s and such, so I have not been as active on the site much in the last 2 months. I am happy that people are receptive to it. Thanks for stopping bye.
