Description : This was the most fun I've ever had making a song. Buddahmann made the acapella so well - such good quality and didn't need any editing at all. Possibly one of my best too; quite different from my usual sound but with the similar elements.
There's a classic Led Zeppelin rip off half way through too to look out for, let me know what you think. Thanks to Buddahmann for sharing his vocal work online,
Description : This was a sort of test for me to write with 24 notes per bar as opposed to 16. I don't know that much about music tech so it was a learning curve. I can't stay away from Nico Collu's vacapellas - they're just too good. I think I have used 3 of them now. I'm also pretty sure I ripped the tune from somewhere but I'm not sure where. Enjoy, CJB
Description : I've been wanting to make a track like this for ages but I could never finish one until I found this acapella from Floyd Alva. I wanted to make it really simple and sharp to make the vocals really stand out which I don't normally do.
The first attempt I had was a bit upbeat so I switched all the lights off and listened to the vocals - I figured it could be about someone dying. This completely changed the tone of the track for me. I also found Redlight's excellent acapella and there was so much synergy between the two tracks that I had to incorporate it. Anyway Enjoy,
Description : This is a really dark grimy sounding track - it's a little more ~bad man~ than the tracks I usually make. It needs to be playing through a system/headphones that can handle bass to get the best idea of what I was going for with the track.
I normally use a midi keyboard to make my songs however I actually made this one on a 4 hour train ride so I couldn't use it. It's not very melodic but as I was making it I thought Shammi's voice would work perfectly with this track. I realised after a while that it sounds a bit like "The Bug" but not enough to class as a rip off. Thanks to Mr Doll/Mr Shammi for creating this fantastic set of vocals!
Description : This one i'll call work in progress because I'm not at all happy with the structure. I wanted to keep the bit at the beginning because it sounds bad but it's a perfect contrast with the piano that starts up two bars in. Any advice on where to take it would be great. I've called it RnB but I think it might
Description : This is the second song I have made with Buddahmann's vocals - which are amazing by the way! I did this in a weird order whereas I uploaded the loops for this track to looperman about a week ago and have only just got round to making them into a song! Excellent fun though - it's a sort of dubstep sound (but not really dubstep) that meets Hip-Hop. Interesting though, give it a listen! CeeJamesBeat
Description : This is a little bit unusual for me but I thought I'd put it out there anyway. I'm looking for vocals for this song - I realise it's quite a big challenge but with a strong powerful voice I think it would work well. It's starts quite slow but give it time - it gets quite exciting, thanks
Description : This is a weird combination of genres. It has some elements of jazz/dub/dubstep/rnb. A strange mix i'm sure you'll agree. Includes vocals from ImDangerous and a spoken word poem from Effluence. I'm not 100% sure but I think I'm dangerous is singing about his penis. Enjoy!
Description : This is was a fun one to make. I tried to make the main riff (once it drastically changes) sound quite creepy to match the vampire theme. I met Traffik through this website (from loops I had uploaded) and offered to remix the track he made. Anyway - enjoy
Description : Featuring RaRCharm and ChaseManhattan. This is the first track I have made in like 6 months using an acapella. I've been trying to focus on so many projects I forgot how much fun making music just for the sake of making music is! This ones quite a strange mix of RnB and Dubstep. The dubstep part isn't over done - I haven't really properly made dubstep before so it's good practice. Chase and RaR have done amazing jobs on these acapellas - they practically sound radio ready! Anyway enjoy ... JV
Description : I think I kind of fluked with this track - I was writing a track for someone else and got bored but found an awesome acapella by Jofanum which fit almost perfectly! Bit of tweaking here and there and we have a nice sounding track out of it.
It's a very laid back track. Jofanum's vocals really stand out nicely in it. I also used a Patricia Edward's spoken word acapella for a bridge I wanted to have. Works well I think.
Theres also a surprise bit at the end which I always like to do. Let me know what you think,
Description : This one has a bit of a Metronomy flavour to parts of it. Parts of it also remind me (heavily) of Get Free by Major Lazer. I'm quite happy with how it turned out this. Thanks to JJWeekz for uploading her fantastic vocals to Looperman. Thanks, JV
Description : This one has an odd christmas sound to it..despite the lyrics. I don't know what it is but every time I hear an acapella by RaRCharm I'm inspired to make retro style RnB with a modern twist. Works well with some nice rap interludes. Thanks RaRCharm for uploading these acapellas. Enjoy! JV
Description : Quite a laid back track I made a while ago. I've been trying to find a vocalist for it but have had no luck so far. It's so of chill/rnb/dub/step ... interesting mix :) Obviously a work in progress at the moment. Let me know if you wanna work on some vocals with me, JV
Description : I started making this one a while back - I can just never seem to finish it. I wanted to make a gritty song with no hook and sort of achieved it but it feels a little disjointed. Probably lack of structure and my poor mastering skills on this track. But I'm not selling it too good - make up your own mind :) Shout out to Gadmandubs for this amazing vocal track. JV
Description : Just a little snippet of something I'm working on at the moment. I haven't uploaded anything on to here in so long I thought I'd show my face. If you want to collaborate on it with me, give me a shout. It starts of nice, natural and slow and wait for the drop! JV
Description : Haven't uploaded anything to Looperman in so long though it was about time when I found these fantastic acapellas from Katie Bregman and Dwayzo. Very relaxed jazzy track with twist written in 3/4. Enjoyed making it a lot! JV
Description : Gritty bass electronica song featuring Epise.
Description : I tried about 10 times to make this song- each time getting a minute in and giving up. I finally managed to settle for this persian style dub/ electronica track. I also went a bit mental on the sub-bass
Description : Featuring Stephanie Kay, AshB and Richie Sykes
This song was probably the most fun to make. It seemed to have taken me about 5 days to make but it was well worth the outcome. I used quite a few oriental sounds but mixed it with a hard bass line - its seems to be a good contrast.
I tried to make it seem like Richie Sykes was interrupting Stephanie Kay though-out the song. The most epic interruption being at 3.43.
A big thankyou to the two artists for posting their fantastic vocals online..enjoy
Description : I was actually planning, with this song, to use an acapella just to structure a track I was making for someone. So I wasn't really too bothered about it being in the right key for the vocals but I liked the way it sounded so much that I tried to adapt them for my track.
I think it work quite well - theres a really epic change midway. Kris Auest and everyone involved in the track did a fantastic job and I thank you, let me know what you think,
Description : This one took me ages to make (at least like 12 hours combined total) and I still couldn't make an intro that I really liked. Its a very different style to the songs I normally make however it's still got the basic elements.
The artist, Marisa Cristina, I initially found her song on a HTC phone and really liked her voice but wasn't mad keen on the style of the track that went with it so I did my own take of it. I'm happy with the way it turned out though - it may be one of my best.
Description : A Pop-Electronic track I made sort of by accident. I spent about 3 hours making a song and decided I hated it all apart from one little bridge. So I took the bridge and made an entirely new song with it. It's quite different to my usual style but still has most the elements. Thank you to Farisha and Pallaso for sharing their excellent vocals and a special thanks to ShowGunProductions.
Description : I made the majority of this track after a night out which could explain many parts of it. It needed a lot of fine tuning once I remembered I had made it. There are still bits I can't get perfect but I can't listen to it anymore.
The intro is sort of meant to be slightly out of tune for the drop but I think it works well. Thank you to Fit2Live and Gapjux for providing their vocals on here. Not too sure what genre this would be - Take a listen,
Description : I must have spent a combined total of about 25 hours making this song. The amount of times I made parts decided I didn't like it and started almost again just keeping one bar of it is unreal.
It was worth it in the end though. I don't often make this genre of music so it was quite different for me (it still has the basic style of my music though).
Theres still parts i'm not sure I'm happy with but if i hear it anymore times i'm going to vomit. Nico Collu did an amazing job of the two acapellas I used for this song - check out his stuff - excellent vocal artist. Thanks for uploading them.
Anyway Enjoy, CJB
