Nice musicality to you track. Like the percs and drums. Lot of recognisable samples in there, nice variation and change at the end well done bud. Golden rule "never fade out" but this is BB so rules dont strictly apply in this sense.

Oh I guess I haven't read a discussion on that yet. What's your thoughts on that? I seem to always want to fade out but its not like I have too much to say in defense of that other than that I enjoy it on some tracks I've heard.




Nice oldschool feel on your track btw, I enjoyed it . I like the breaks in the structure. The compressed bongo hit felt a little loud in the mix but the beat is solid.

Totally agree on the bongos, not enough time to tame them tonight. My workflow involves a lot of back tracking.

I think fades are just generally seen as a cop out, for me very 80's pop rock (cant think of a specific track to example).

Re: Beat Battle 42 - You make music! You make it happen!

I'd say it's about as much of a cop out as ending at the end of the loop or at the beginning of the next measure. I like the open ended feel of it and the sense of continuous repetition and sometimes the vibe of a conclusion can call too much attention to itelf, its a little hard to put into words but tapering off with a fade out is a bit more low key if you'd rather go with that vibe. I think I haven't listened to enough 80's pop to develop the negative association but I understand. I don't know about ''golden'' or ''never'' though.

Really nice work on your track, by the way..even if you think it's still a bit rough. This is going to be another one of those hard to vote for BBs I think.

Regarding the fade out thing..I personally don't think it's a cop out in general..kinda depends on an individual basis..but, granted, many seem to screw it up and use it on tracks where it just doesn't work at all.

Re: Beat Battle 42 - You make music! You make it happen!

OK..here's what I've come up with after two hours. I know it's got more holes in it than a lump of Swiss Cheese, but this is the BBs after all..and I've taken it as far as I could in the two hours I've had to work on it..

[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]


I know I can do a hell of a lot more to it..but I doubt I could do much more before midnight, so I'm upping it "as it",,a WIP that needs attention..and obviously isn't in the running for any votes. Like I said before, I'm only posting this as I promised I would get something done for this one, as well as support the rest of you who actually did turn out something solid for this.

By the way..every track posted so far sounds really good..but I think I already have one earmarked for my vote.

Re: Beat Battle 42 - You make music! You make it happen!

all real solid as usuall..

I'm voting lugs as it just suits my taste the most. The end part was really well done IMO. The subtle syncopated kick with the womppy pad and that high arpy thing... complicated but not beating you over the head. I dug it.

@AM your's was real solid to me, again tasteful. Especially considering that you did it so fast.

ddududuuuduuuddee... this one is real sick. I think you had the best quality mix. Sounds real good on my lil living room setup. Really kept my interest throughout and had a fun vibe.
@[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]

sick and moody and slightly funny to me, as usual. It's your style and I dig it. Even though I can tell that it was just off the cuff.
@[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]

the last 1/3 of yours with the housey beat is super tight. Really dug it. You know what you're doing.

Re: Beat Battle 42 - You make music! You make it happen!

all those tracks are so good, it's intimidating. I haven't put half the work some of you have done to squeeze these sounds out of the samples.

mistereffeks; you're the only one who almost used the entire soundbank. There's a lot happening in your track with all those tiny edits and single hits. And I like how it hits hard right at the start.

mutemachine: that horror movie soundtrack. You kept it simple, and you really captured a mood.

A.M.: kudos for participating even though you only had two hours to listen to the samples and arrange the whole thing. I like swiss cheese. I like it in sandwiches. We do have way tastier cheese around here, but a bit of swiss cheese is ok when I make burgers for example. That's my comment on your track I hope you like it. Seriously though, what you posted is obviously at the wip stage, but the base is already pretty solid, I like the droney flange-y special effects.

7asid: now I commented right when you posted, but again I am amazed by the sounds you got from the samples. The melodic input is inspired and original. Again the treatment on that sound is top notch. The experimentation factor is there representing as well. And there are three different parts in your track! how much inspiration can a single man get from a pack of samples?

MC volcano: your track just sounds like something I would listen to. It's IDM to the purest. Reminded me of Nautilis (remember malcom kipe? remember idm?). It's got the contrast between tight rhythm and dreamy melodic content, it's got the glitches. Also the bassline sounded very natural, like something you would play on a bass guitar. I have a bit of a bias I think because when I played it I thought "it's like my track is the intro, and this is the track that follows". Seriously digging it.

So my vote goes to volcano

it's always so exciting to listen to the bbs

Re: Beat Battle 42 - You make music! You make it happen!

My headphones broke yesterday so I can't listen or produce, and I accidentally Clintoned a partition with 740gb of samples, projects, games, pictures of the ex... RIP me

Well done to all of you who have submitted, the turnout is great
I'm getting new headphones later today and i'll give you all a listen

haha "clintoned"


I just checked and apparently the last bb I participated in before this one was #22. I can't believe I let 20.. what 20 months? How long do they last? 2 weeks? so that's 10 months? crazy.

Re: Beat Battle 42 - You make music! You make it happen!

It was a tough choice tbh, but my vote went to 7asid for..what is for me anyway..a very retro sounding track; it just reminds me so much of some of Jean Michell Jarre's stuff from the 80s..mainly the "Revolutions" Docklands concert he did back then..which I was totally into at the time. Still like and appreciate his music..hence me liking this track so much. Nice work..kudos, mate.

It had stiff competition in the form of MFXxx's track, which used so many samples..or seemed to..in such a stylish way..and the production level in general on that track just shines..seriously!

If we had to mark just on technical standards alone, then MFXxx's track would have stolen my vote right out of the gate..but I always tend to vote for the track that I like to listen to the most, rather than basing my choice on how sophisticated or stylish the production skills used are.

LSS..7asid gets my vote simply because I really liked listening to the track..my kind of music I guess..but my thanks to everyone else for taking part and turning in such quality stuff all round. Nice one, guys..seriously.
