- makin music with my niggas .
Not a bad track to work with. Has more of a Jazzy feel, so here your vocals need to really be in time to the rather difficult syncopated rhythms. I can suggest you try a little more of a smoother approach to your vocals. This is more of a poetry, spoken word kind of piece and just follow the downbeat of the drum and let it flow man.
Hi, thanks for giving me the opportunity to listen to your music. It really takes a strong individual to put their heart and soul into something and then allow someone to critique it. First off, I'm feeling the laid-back style of the beat, it has a nice Boom Bap/J-Dilla sort of vibe to it. Overall, I hear potential, but do have a few suggestions which are //Mixing// To me, the vocals don't gel very well with the instrumental. It's almost as if you're flowing over a two track. What I would do, if you're not already, is make sure that when you're mixing (or whoever is mixing) be mindful of where your sweet spot is (vocal range wise) this way the EQ, reverb and other fx can be attenuated properly so you sit in well. Side Note: Access to stems will result in a better mix. //Flow// I think your flow sounds good, but there were some spots in the song where you seemed to pause unnecessarily. I'm not sure if this was done on purpose or if you were struggling with wording (happens sometimes). //Structure// Good song structure will help with the organization of your track, not only in terms of recording, but writing, mixing, delivery and the editing process as a whole. //Concept// I'd also advise focusing on a few concepts. This way it's easier for you to knock out tracks, it ups your confidence and it helps with placements. Typically when people are looking to place tracks they look for songs that evoke emotion Those are my small tips, overall, I think you're on the right track. Please, let me know what gear you currently have as well as where you're trying to take your career, this way I can better point you in the right direction - Greg Savage
