'Boogie for K Boog'

Caustic Song file (optional): 

*sorry two uploads in one day, I'm finally finishing some stems*

K Boog keeps making funky track after a funky track, and keeps getting better and better, frighteningly so at times smiley

Here's a little attempt from me to make something in that kind of vein, dedicated to Keith of course laugh. Once again, I managed to ignore Steve Conroy's advice about using simple snares for hip hop beats, just not sure I can actually make hip hop and will always end up with 'hip hop-esque' vibes instead.

The bottom end of the mix starts to clip near the end, but no amount of tweaking the Master EQ, compressor and Limiter seemed to fix it without getting rid of the bass boom I wanted to keep.

It's public property if anyone wants it. Would be cool if someone with a better affinity for hip hop can bump up the funk smiley

That bit at the end is superb

That bit at the end is superb, this is certainly a worthy tribute to the mighty K-Boog imho.

Copy a melody line, add a new

Copy a melody line, add a new machine with the same the preset, transpose the melody up/down, change the FX, volume, reverb settings and then layer them together laugh

Glad you enjoyed it - it's good to take a walk somewhere new once in a while and take a closer look at what everyone else is doing laugh

Maybe I'll try dubstep next, followed by a new drum and bass tune indecision

This is a fun track to listen

This is a fun track to listen to.

I tried simply toning down the delay in the beatbox on the snare sounds, that helped.

At measure 53, things take on a new style.  I was thinking Jan Hammer's "The Early Years" meets hip-hop mashup sound.  But it works, and sounds pretty slick.

thanks, glad you liked it  I

thanks, glad you liked it smiley I'm not a great songwriter (or a songwriter at all blush), and melodically I'm pretty limited, but I like to try and get under the skin of things a little and test/stretch myself. 

Hopefully the feel and sound of my tunes compensates for their simplicity.

Please post up the file if you've fixed the clipping smiley
