Description : Ok! This is more of an up tempo Mod style track. Great bands like the Small faces, the Who, The Kinks is where the inspiration has been drawn from. I have added the toaster doing the off beat chant that swings the track back into the Ska genre even though the track is quite rocky.
A nine piece horn section sets the GSN trade mark sound. I have panned the guitar tracks so they don't get lost in the mix and added a change of feel through the middle solo section. Again all comments are most welcome, and I thank you in advance for taking the time to listen...
Description : just a fun track i think...A mix of Shaggy meets The Antiques Roadshow ;) brapppppp
Description : This track has a mysterious type feel to it. Mixed with a synthesizer, acoustic guitar, drums and other miscellaneous sounds. It's a guarantee you'll find it an interesting one.
Description : Ska-Punk
Description : This song is about what Chimpy said to Sleeve one day. Friends I used to love but can't stand anymore.
The jangly tabla & one-drop are Reason'd, the rest is all me.
Ess 'kay, eh?

Description : a melt of funk and ska genre... if you already listened to SOLEDAD, this track is the B side ^^
Description : My cover of the Beat song which I think is their best song. I toned it down a bit, less horns and guitar than the original. Bass, 2 drum tracks, trombone, acoustic guitar and a few vocal tracks.
Description : At the beginning i wanted to work on a dub sound and finally i slided towards a ska sound... may be because i listened recently one of my laurel aitken records? lol

Following the joefunktastic advice, i put "ska" for the genre :)
Description : THIS IS A BRAND NEW MIX OF THIS SKA NUMBER
this is old school British Ska, Madness, The English Beat, The Selecters and my favorite The Specials, for the younger crowd these names might not mean a thing but their influence is all over the place, all loops no processing on the mix and the magic of SlapJohnson on harmonica, his loops are priceless to me thanks Slap.
Description : This is the final track from the first Global Ska Network album. I started this album in Feb thinking I could do all the tracks in time to finish the RPM challenge. I was wrong, but I didn't want to rush what I had started and compromise quality. This track is about the general can't be bothered culture we are facing. You know the kind of people I'm talking about! They want everything for nothing,and expect everything to be handed to them on a plate. They also would rather do dirty deeds to (lie,cheat ect) Than walk the right path.. Verse..How many more times,how many more lies spat at our faces.you wheel and deal,cheat and steal won't win the races.I turn my back,try to protect the love that's left,you want that too, the greed you show despises you.Chorus.You'll always learn the hard way, you have to have the last say,stop living day to day, the future's what you make it,get out there and take it.. 10 piece horn section, including a clarinet high up to add a sparkle. All instruments and vocals Slap, drums by Sonic foundry. Again I'm looking for constructive comments towards the arrangement and mix/production. This track has 24 tracks, so if you feel a tweak is needed please say. I thank you all in advance for taking the time to listen and review... Cheers Slap...

Description : A bit of organ, a selection of great acoustic guitar loops courtesy of the Looperman community. I couldn't find a bassline that suited the track so I skipped the bass.
Comments and critiques appreciated.
