New Track: The Green Goblin Enjoys A Film

Why is this track called "The Green Goblin Enjoys A Film"? Because my brother told me to call it that.

I'm VERY proud of this instrumental. I think I'm learning a lot more about layers and levels (especially thanks to my kick ass new monitors). This is about 80% sampled with some drums and synthesized strings thrown in to emphasize and add mood. The track has some small development, but mainly just switches between 3 loops. I've been listening to a lot of Jay-Z and Lupe lately and I think I was slightly influenced by the types of production they tend to have. What I mean is I think this is one of my more lyrics-friendly tracks that still maintains listenability as an instrumental.

Hope you enjoy!

Thanks Mom and Dad!

I GOT NEW SPEAKERS!!!!!! M-Audio AV 40s baby! This should greatly improve the quality of my work since I will be able to hear more subtle differences in levels without having the compression of the headphones I've been using.

Reviews Coming Soon

I'm going to post my reviews for the new Lupe Fiasco and Jay-Z albums pretty soon (next few days). They're really good and I didn't want to just review with my first impressions so I've been giving myself a chance to give them a more in-depth listen.

Also, New Years Resolution #8032: Post more often.

New Track: Sinking

A new instrumental I made. Mostly samples, a little synthetic embellishment on the drums. Hope you like it.
