@DEEZ BEATZ “Jacked Kilos”: I liked the bass sound, snare rolls, and the lead synth too. Everything was also mixed well so it all fit well together. Great job


“Slip, trip, and drip”: I like the mix and the sounds in the beat. I barely know what the singer is saying but his melody sounds good lol


@Matt-D : That remix is dope. I don’t have experience in creating remixes to give critical feedback, but I liked it regardless.


@NakedStar : “Menace”: I like snare pattern and snare rolls, the timbre of the synth brass is pretty dope too. Good job.

“Ultimatum”: Brass in this one is pretty dope too, kind of has an EDM vibe to it, which pretty unique. I like it

“On slaught”: I like the song structure of this beat and also the different timbres of the bells, and the choir in the background,it feels out the frequency spectrum pretty well. Good job


@KuKo : Saw: I think this one needs a better melody and harmony section but i liked the intro


Burn: I like this beat, the kick has a nice knock to it and I like the timbre of the keys. It’s mixed pretty well


Life is Good: I like it those string synths, it gives it a late 2000s feel which I find kind of cool since you combine it with more current sounds too, like the hi hat pattern.

Here is my beat for this week:

@Matt-D This remix is fire. That is so smooth and it goes good. I like this a lot. Keep up the good work and I enjoy watching your videos man..

@NakedStar That onslaught drums.....Oooo Weee that bangs

@DEEZ BEATZ Both of them are dope, but the first one really brings it out. I love it.

@Feel I like the Jazz/Blues feel in this track. The drums are sauce..

@Baasta Beats Those claps on that Honey track is banging. Kinda has that west coast vibe...Me likes

@Chad Damn man...that bass is fatty in a good way. And the drums that goes with it made it 10x better....dope track


I decided to resurrected this track for my upcoming project I'm working on:

How's it going fellow illiens! Would appreciate some feedback on thee beats I've done. The second one is a UK grime instrumental. Loving the vibe on that video @Matt-D sounding sick! Good luck with permission! Happy new year everyone
Super dope beats! :D I like them, especially Menace :D
Feedback: To me the high-frequensies (especially in Ultimatum) Can be a little ear-piercing. This might be due to the high-frequensies overall just being too loud, or maybe also due to offending frequensies.
Other than that, good job! :D

You MUST leave feedback or your post will be removed.


Post your beats!

And please provide feedback.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE
I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays. I would really appreciate some feedback on a few of my beats. Thank you guys in advance



I dig “Honey” and “Infinity...” Super-chill. “Falling” is not really my thing... Although, I will say I could easily hear the late Chester Bennington or a ‘Staind-type’ vocalist coming in any second. =)

Happy new Years everyone

@Matt-D that was dope man keep it up.
@DEEZ BEATZ Jacked kilos is a banger
@NakedStar Im not really into this style but I give a thumbs up to what I like
@KuKo The song burn has a long drum pause at around 1:35 shorten it a couple of bars. Welcome to illmuzik
Diggin’ it... Reminds me of an ‘Arrested Development,’ ‘Dilated Peoples,’ or even a ‘Jurassic 5’ beat.

@DEEZ BEATZ Jakced Kilos sick beat, love it man, especially love the hard bass line, keep up the good work! Check out 3 of my last beats and give a feedback if you want!
I really like “Burn” and “Life Is Good...” I liked the effect/technique (I haven’t been producing very long) you used that makes the kick sound like it’s whirling around my head, in “Burn.” And, the vocal sample to drop in “Life Is Good.” =)

SOMETHING TO START OFF THE NEW YEAR, IT WAS 3AM WHEN I HAD THIS LITTLE ITCH TO SCRATCH. THEN I HAD ANOTHER IDEA AND SINCE I HAD RAPPERS & DJ'S AT MY HOUSE, I GRABBED SOMEBODY AND LAID DOWN SOME TRACKS ... OPINIONS ALWAYS WELCOME
I like them, both. Really love those synth notes over that distorted bass line on “Jacked Kilos...” I don’t feel I’ve been at this long enough to give, or even be able to give production advice. They both sound great, to me. =)

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. Advanced thanks for your time, ears, and energy.

@NoWairMan I'm really feeling that! I like the fact it's different and it's a shame that wasn't entered i find it refreshing to bring new things to the table. Fair play

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.

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 lyricist or MC to it, and make their selection process either. Good/bad idea..? Thoughts/comments..? Tell me it’s laughable, or pointless, if you think it, plz... I’m grown; I can take it... Thanks. =)
Here’s an example (notes under SC link):


Upbeat, structured instrumental for Hip Hop:‬
‪(Think “Ditty” by Paperboy or “Hey Ma” by Cam’Ron; that kinda feel to it)‬

Vocal-primed ~ 168 bars / 7:09 m | key: C#m‬

Intro. = 8 bars
A) -PrVrs. = 8 (a1)
——--Vrs. = 16
B) -PrHk. = 8 (b1)
———Hk. = 8 (b2)
A) -PrVrs. = 8
———Vrs. = 16
B) -PrHk. = 8
———Hk. = 8
C) Brdg. = 8
A) -PrVrs. = 8
——--Vrs. = 16
B) -PrHk. = 8
———Hk. = 8
B’) Hk’. = 16 [ 2(b2+a1)]
C) Brdg. = 8
Coda) = 8 (w/ fade-out)

@NoWairMan that's exactly what I do with my instrumentals. Always have done. I work with a couple mcs including myself making tracks out of my beats

@NakedStar Three decent beats, my favorite is on slaught, the atmosphere is right up my street, Id say this track seems more like a grime instrumental than the others, due to the tempo. But decent work all round. Are you from the UK and if so where abouts, Im in Edmonton, North London myself.

@Matt-D Nice video, really like the chord progression, and a dope track at the end, cant stand chris brown but the beat is dope.

@DEEZ BEATZ Really nice production and mixing on both tracks, that emcee on the second track sounds like one of our artists.. JC Money.

@KuKo Really not feeling that saw beat. But the other two are okay, Im not sure if its just me, but there seems to be some issues with the sounds meshing together, not sure if its the mix or the sounds used. I noticed it on all three tracks.

@Baasta Beats Love the drums on falling. Do you use reason? Just wondering. Honey is dope as fuck, once again great drums, this shit is right up my street. Love the oldskool boombap feel. Not sure about the filtered drum part. Infinity is dope too, really like your style. Welcome to illmuzik, good to have you on board.

@2GooD Productions thanks for the feedback I appreciate it! Yeah I'm originally from Leyton east London but have been in woking Surrey for a while now. I'm looking to do something music related around my area but stuck for ideas :/ not much of an urban atmosphere around here! You been in London a while?
