    Nice flow, I like the vocals. The beat does immediately drop @0:53 , was it your intention ?

    I added a bunch of little drops in the drums intentionally, with headphones they are really obvious to me. I wanted to smooth :53 out initially, but felt it added interest without detracting and made later breaks and drops more acceptable so I left it in.
    THANK YOU for paying close attention. These types of feedback help immensely!

    you have a nice feel for the genre so I think your 'branching out' is a success! vocal is very well done and digging the guitar riffs. This is you playing guitar also?

    Vocal seems to drop off at 1:45 for a second or two

    Nice song! Regards - Dan

    I did that on purpose because I spent too much time on the synths and wanted to give them a minute to shine. :) I slammed that vocal section onto a dubplate and lowered the volume to change the focus completely for that part. I don't mind the vocal part effect, i like it, but It feels to me like the track comes back into full mix a little abruptly just after. Thanks for noting that as it was a "trouble spot" for me in production.
    I played all of the instruments except the drums, which are Ben Marmier.

    -I'm not a very experienced guitarist so it means a lot that you dig those parts!
    Thanks!

    Nice work Slimm. This is so awesome to hear some good quality music like this on this site. Very nice Kingston, Jamaica sounding track. Bassline nearly funky too! Two thumbs up Slimm!

    I agree with "nearly funky" for the bassline,hehe. There is a big pocket in the timing for funk, but I really didn't play that much, trying to keep the negative space to imply funkiness. I tried to stay true to the kingston sound with the bass and guitar and only have one turnaraound,(which incidentally became the solo.) That's why I say "why do I burn me again" after the bridge, to reference Jamaican grammar as homage to that rich musical heritage. :) Thanks for the feedback!

    That bassline is so fat! Lovin' the groove here. I'm not experienced with reggae but this is quite catchy!

Virginia Slimm - This Time [2017]

Chords and Lyrics

154 bpm Dub/Ska/Reggae
Db Minor
Ab Minor
Gb Minor

Taken all this time to get things right.
Quit staring into, start using the light.
I learned my lesson, no need to burn me again.
Heaven beside you Hell within.

This time feels like the first time,
Maybe the last time, we ever meet.
(x2)

Where did you go? I thought you were lost.
Found your car, parked on my block.
Still know my number, it's me baby buzz me in.
I see some trouble's about to begin.

*instrumental break*

...Alright ...Alright
I learned my lessons, so why do I burn me again?
Smaller things toppled a bigger man.

This time, feels like the first time,
Maybe the last time we ever meet.
(x2)

How did you know, I would still be up?
After you called, I was so fucked up.
Your words are weapons, You use them to blow me away.
Blown like a kiss when I want to stay.

(END)

Description : Music composed by Alex Richard and Laurent Wirz. With: Hanspeter Dubach Lead and rhythm guitars, Alex Richard Bass and rhythm guitars, Claude Barbotte Hammond organ, Joël Perrin Saxophone and me at the drums. The two grooves I used for this one are to find under Loops and Sample, member laurentwirz, reggae. Also an excellent loop from member ebae. I have to say that I asked Michael Mayo before publishing it but I received no answer yet. It was pretty difficult with his acapella because it's a pretty short loop with not a lot of words (for an almost 5 minutes track)! You can ear also some background vocals from Patricia Edwards and I hope it's okay for her.

Description : Took the rundown acapella from ThaSuspect, chopped'it and made a Reggae Instrumental.
Please use it to add Verses and a Chorus.
Hope you like it.

Description : NEW - 2014 - I used a few samples from sterixx called riddim.
And one from seanmccuaig called vocal beat.
I used some lyrics from an older song by myself. It was more a dark wave song befor but i realy enjoyed it to sing and produce it in reggae style.
Hope you enjoy this version also.
