    Nice tune Evan.
    I like that twisted little sample that runs through the track, as well as the "A dream, a dream, a dream...".
    The beat's pretty good, but I'm not sure if the female vocal fits. It seems somewhat out of place.

    yeah i wuz just experimenting with the vocal, but i don't think i can get it to lock up enough without degrading the quality too much.

    Thanks dave...that sample actally says "frequency" sampled from Roots Manuvah of Jurassic 5.

    tune sounds better but you're a damn fool

    Roots Manuva is not in Jurassic 5, he is a solo recording artist from UK, on Big Dada (Ninja tune's hip hop label). He did a tune with Chali 2na (of Jurassic 5 fame) on his latest LP, thats where you got the sample from i think (cuz you recorded it from me and cuz the vocal doesn't sound jamaica/british).

    Either way your tune sounds a lot better except i don't really like the female vocal bit, it sounds too far back in the mix, but i think it'd be better if you just scrapped that bit. The twisting noise from the beginning is great, you tweaked that out well. The bassline sounds too repetitive or monotonous. Try fucking around with some LFO's maybe or some sweeping filters. Try and make it so that the filter 'comes full circle' every 64 bars or so, real slow so that theres a gradual change to that 'b-line'.

    I like your drum pattern, try maybe adding in some more fills to compensate for the no vocal

    That's what i say for now, keep us posted on progress.

    ps, expect a call from some of my brothers friends about recording some things

    no, he is not the only one

    if you wanna check some proper UK hip hop aside from manuva check Ty, skitz, mark b and blade, or killa kela (wicked beatboxer, also does DnB). About 1/2 the stuff on Big Dada (ninja tune hip hop sublabel) is brilliant, but i'm really not feeling he other half -- infesticons, gamma, etc.

    Anyways, for british hip hop you can't go wrong with either Roots Manuva LP or the Ty LP (awkward)

    Hey I like it, except the precussion. It sounds like real druming, you should use some good jungle samples instead.

    I've tried my hand at jungle too. DL it here:

    This is my first try at jungle though, so I appologize if it sucks, and it's just a rough outline of the whole track, not finished at all. I didn't use any loops, I sequenced all the beats, and made all the sounds on physical modeling synths, so give me some credit there [​IMG]. I usually do house and jungle is nice for a change.
