    Some food for thought...

    Is Today’s Hip-Hop Trash or Are We Just Getting Old? Spoiler Alert: The Answer Is ‘Yes’

    I think there’s a period in every culture’s music in which it’s participants choose to ‘turn a blind eye;’ Latinos are STILL trying to forget about Ricky Martin on that jet ski, for example... =o Perhaps, one day, parts of this era of Hip Hop will be similar.

    Is Today’s Hip-Hop Trash or Are We Just Getting Old? Spoiler Alert: The Answer Is ‘Yes’

    Yup... And, I would hardly call the “Like, Follow, Repost” thing we got goin’ now CULTURE... Technology changed that, too. The path, as an artist, changed. Now, all you have to do is go viral or f*ck a Kardashian. There used to be a code; (And if the code’s gone, we should at least get a...

    Is Today’s Hip-Hop Trash or Are We Just Getting Old? Spoiler Alert: The Answer Is ‘Yes’

    I agree with you... With no genre spared. Bad music is bad music. It seems to me that the quality of music, whatever the trend, follows the cliche, “It’s always darkest before the dawn.” By this I mean that the market gets flooded with every iteration of “what’s popular” right before the...

    I love the beat... Again, you really make that rock influence work. However, in my opinion, that siren-esque sound (0:55,2:01) detracts from it. Maybe something a little more subtle, if anything at all. =)

    Difference Between A Music Producer & A Beat Maker

    I’m still ‘noob’ status, and learning my way around, but I’m pretty sure this is the spot I’m looking for to post this... I came across this warm thread, in my travels, and thought it might be of some interest, on this forum. What caught my eye, at first, was the author’s name; thought he might...

    I like the plucks, with that rolling bass line, and tappy, channeled hi-hat. Counts as an instrument in my book. Some folks take that darn seriously; check it: =D

    Here’s the full track, from my ‘attempted’ beaTThis submission. No licensing BS... Do what you feel with it... If someone puts words to it, I’d love to hear it. =) “No,Toto. This ain’t Kansas... Now, where were those poppies.!?” ~ Trap-Queen Dorothy (Just a j/k, BTW; oPiAtEsSuCk) 192 bars...

    Thank you for the complement. I really appreciate it, @Matt-D. It’s still my favorite trap tune I’ve written... Here’s the full track; “No,Toto. This ain’t Kansas... Now, where were those poppies.!?” ~ Trap-Queen Dorothy (lol-just a...

    Thank you for answering my concern... I also do it as a kinda journal. Not just on SoundCloud (because they could shut-down tomorrow, like some blogger/journalist has predicted a couple times a month, since 2015. =D ) I screenshot it, when finished and file it away. It’s encouraging to find...

    I do have a question I’ve been wondering about... It’s more of a marketing thing, but requires a beat posted as an example, so I’m hoping this is the place. With every structured instrumental I write, for Hip Hop/Trap, I include a structural breakdown of the track, in hopes of drawing a...

    Thank you... I just realized that I grabbed the wrong file when uploading to SC. =< There’s supposed to be a fade-out on it, ending it at 1:57 m, making it within comp. regs. and better produced. =( *** I fixed it... Lol.

    So, I woke up late, and missed entry into Beat This. =( That’s awesome it filled up fast. Healthy, active community of members. =) Since it’s already all ready, I thought I’d post what WAS going to be my entry here, for your critique. Hope all of you are having a happy new year, thus far...

    I like it. Crystal clear production... That crow sample really makes it. =) Wouldn’t play for me, bro... =( I dig it... Dark and eerie, yet not with those high tones... =) I dig “Honey” and “Infinity...” Super-chill. “Falling” is not really my thing... Although, I will say I could...

    Thank you...

    A long and winding road, like most of us, I’d gather. I worked (grew up) in major-market radio broadcasting. Family biz. I attended my first concert at age 4 (KISS-full makeup-backstage) and was ‘on-the-air’ at 17. I worked in broadcasting until the FCC deregulation of 1996, which caused the...

    Thank you for the consideration of making mention. ( <== best alternate I came up with for ‘name-drop.’ Lol.)

    I followed your advice on this one, today... I used a stereo spread on the two vocal tracks, to dial ‘em back a bit, but that’s it other than track volumes. However, I realized that because my library consists of both self-produced AND SoundPack type stems (LoopMasters, SoundCloud buddies,’ my...

    I do... That left-channeled organ and the rock influence work well with that beat and scratch. =)

    I like this one, too. That synth sound. I’ve been reading, all over, how right now is the “midst of an 80’s comeback,” in many aspects, music being one of them; https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/11/style/depeche-mode-rules.html https://www.quora.com/Will-80s-music-make-a-comeback...
