Thanx for the vote bro i was really just trying something new. Im always doing trap and figured if i learned how to do different sounds it would help when i go back to my own style. Same thing with what i did with warzone, some of that dancehall feel. I knew it wouldnt make it far but the experiance was what i really needed. Watch this space when i combine all i have learnt on the next battle
I voted for @Primz ... basically what it came down to was I really liked the percussion sounds, the arpeggiated sound. But what I particularly liked was how it's quite a slow feeling beat, so to make the minimal percussion work how it did I think takes under recognised or underappreciated skill. And I really liked how the bass swell, seemed to add a depth to the arpeggio. I wasn't as keen on the sci-fi whine sound, nothing to do with how it was played or mixed, just felt maybe I wanted something else there.
It was between him and... @thangman ... had a real tough time deciding between you 2, I feel like slyly I was being manipulated by this hot gorgeous heat we had today, the weather and the beat were going hand in hand, which was the same for @guitardep who's beat ironically was called Sun Beach. I proper chilled to both of your tracks. I ended up picking Primz beat, because I quite liked the arpeggio and how he worked the slowness well, I also felt it sounded slightly experimenty and I thought it may have less chance of getting recognition but hey
@TACTIK was also in my shortlist, really love how he worked that whistle, and ironically like @Fade mentioned, I initially thought it may have been an unsubbed GoodBadUgly beat, realised it wasn't i think, but really dug it.
@DaHomie really loved this too. Got nice bounce to it.
@nottr reaaally loved this - it's funny 'cause it had a sense of familiarity, but it's only when I saw the song title that I remembered where from.
THE ABOVE all formed my "shortlist"
I really loved @Pappas Beats track too, but the bassline reminds me of something, and I can't remember what. Commercial trakc? One of mine? no idea, it feels familiar. I really like it tho. Kinda shit i'd listen to. (not accusing him of deezing btw)
@Vossi Beats bruhhh, what a beat. When I heard someone mention middle-eastern and a certain instrument that i knew i ain't used i thought sheeeit, when I heard it, this feeling was reconfirmed. Proper like this beat. Definitely gotta talk to you about it, pick your brains about it. Reminded me of @YannFer "Mumbay Shit", so i was shocked when I saw YannFer say he ain't enter. (I also picked Yann's brain on his beat too!)
A lot of others I really liked, most in fact. So don't bum if I left you out - I probably thought your ish was dope!
If anyone want feedback on their's as usual, lemme know.
Good work ILLfam
