    Yeah and it's great that there's no 'obvious' style/sub genre that wins. Although the vibe in general is 'hip hop', there's a hell of a lot of scope in that which can often give us nods to future beats, trap, boom bap, chill, bass, downtempo, neo-soul, jazz, to name just a few. Everyone is on the supertight clock and many of us will feel like we put up rushed tracks, but remember you're not being judged on 'most polished mix' etc. If you have great parts working together to create a great 'demo' track, then that's what matter here. Once you get used to working much faster you will hopefully learn, as I have in the last few months, about how great it actually is! No better way to get over procrastination and lack of focus on what you should be working on for a track like a STBB deadline! 😄 Hopefully we'll get to check your jams soon man. 😎

    I've created a weekly scorecard/leaderboard in Excel Online that is much better than the one I have been using to calculate the scores to help out Joa the last few weeks. It's got a pivot table based leaderboard that keeps up to date and in order as scores are entered on the scorecard (albeit with click of refresh), so it's much quicker than what I had, and I've even put some stuff in that helps check the accuracy of the figures as much as I can just in case any little mistakes get made when using it. Once 594 is complete, i'll share it publicly, (read only, except for Joa etc who will be able to edit), as i'm guessing some of you would like to know where you end up in the full leaderboards etc sometimes? (Especially when it's close!) Each week we'll keep adding new tabs so it will always be in the same link and you can more easily track how you are doing etc if you so desire. I know this weeks battle is very very close at the moment, but with still over 9hrs to go until deadline it's impossible to predict! Closest one for a while it seems. Good luck all. 😎

    GUYS. All a y'all outdone y'all selves, and you know it, you kind of making me angry right now. Because I thought I had a good thing, selected from a good four ideas I had going on in Ableton, and this week just took me to school innit I'm about to burn some of the beautiful things I heard to a CD just to cruise to (don't worry the people affected got a PM waiting for them to paypal them some I'm not naming no numbers I'm just a humble fan, shit got me in the feels nah?) in order of (reverse) likes; per.du: not expecting this.. take me back to the noughties with some ill programmed drum work, no idea I needed this bigfamily: cool bump you got there, just tight, I know on this joint I don't have to *think* or anything it's just flow TkC: digging the mixing you did of all these samples together, seems effortless you know? naturelle.boombap: yeah what the fuck. no idea where you got all this from. then the vocals come in. man fuck. you got it. and the way it cuts from the chorus to the verse kind of, it's done! naturelle naturelle! :.Nella.Good.Fella.:: been hearin' you brother. this beat. digging how you used the tones sample, it's like jazz because I can't see where the next measure is tonically/melodically going to go, but with the drums it's kind of held with its feet to the ground as well. like no biggie. we gots this. one Detritus Tabu3: couldn't figure out how to use the spacy vocals, well you did though, you took everybody there, no pressure, just these vibes Zifhang: not cliff hanging, just hanging, this that thinking back of how fucked up and how beautiful our youths were and where we think of going with this thing called life really- .gerald: where the fuuuck did you get these drums, then with the vocals this whole composition? honestly curious for your process. and that's before this little arp comes in. that's a viiiiibe honestly this rivals with the best of 'em. getting philosophical with the beats. no cure SO.ME1 a.k.a. P1: there you have it, this is like you playing the trumpet yourself n shit, hey! would probably feel kind of wrong not to drink some wine while this track is on speakers defMute: took.. it.. down.. low.. lofi.. but this mixing something that has been well thought out FatVonFree: gave my last favor... gat damn.. this shit so reel.. gone out my way more than enough.. unless you asking me what you can do for me.. don't say shit.. ugh!! I'm not even starting about the visuals that you are working on. born to create Kowalzki: too cold with the vocals, like they sprinkled in there with the high bell notes, like I said drums fit, no, fuck this this a world champion beat, fuck off man please. this that wind down, man I know my wine is all gone I'm about to do some drugs just to come down on it with this song on repeat in the back Man this playlist is something. I'm not fucking around when I'm saying this week was hard.. ridiculously difficult to order and prioritise and whatnot, everybody did a bomb ass beat ///// I'm genuinely glad and proud to be part of this. Here's the wins; 1. FatVonFree 2. .gerald 3. Kowalzki

    Hey fellas, I had a lot of fun chopping up the samples, good stuff. If you've got the time, check out my non-entry version with acapella. Some things are meant to be... Got lucky when I was dropping in a vocal clip from a battle rhyme, same tempo and dropped nicely into the arrangement.

    JAKAL - So many nice parts to this, and lots of nice little variations and changes, very intricate. Props! Kowalzki - Great that swing in the first half, and the change up half way through is ill! SO.ME1 a.k.a P1 - Nice big vibe and lovin' the drums. FatVonFree - Lovely vocal/bass as usual, and very nice atmos. All in all a very finished sounding track. Kongchain - Heavy bounce and sick keys/bass. Picking #3 was a real tough one and I could have went for 4 or 5 happily. Solid week though, and no wonder with the great sample selection. Shouts/props to the below as well: slik Nik - the cooler - great heavy drums setting off the laidback jazz chops D-Skillz Music - Great bounce TkC - great chops and lazy drums naturelle.boombap - Such a nodder of a beat Zifhang - lovin' the bass and chops ⚁N!T - Very stripped back but still heavy, nice defMute - Lofi dessert
