The Runners! I never really knew who they were until recently, whenever Khaled said their name, I thought it was a group he was in. Turns out these two badass mofos made pretty much every beat that you might of thought DJ Khaled made haha. I've been studyin their tracks recently and I have learned some new tecniques. I'll show yall what's up on thursday, janurary 1st!
Okay so I saw JoeyKeyz' myspace and how fancy and profesional his was compared to mine, so I'm gonna start being a bit more serious so I made a myspace a while ago and never did anything with it. Soooooooo, I'm probably never gonna get around to making mine fancy and stuff but add me to make me look cool. And to let you know, this is just my music myspace, I have a different one that actually has more than 3 friends on it hahaha.
If you looked at my songs, you'd see a few Flash Helix ones. me and him are making a mixtape of sorts which he is putting on a website. I can't remember the name. Anyway, we've done quite a lot of these and if you got some time on your hands you should check em out.

I've been a part of the audio section of NG for the past like 10 months, and I've only seen a hip hop song on the list like once or twice. It's allways, classical, trance/techno, DnB, or Video game. i mean the Obliterate the Oppostion song by Cajete had an incredible score and many votes but it was still beat by some techno, DnB, video game song. I mean, techno and trance are good in all, but let's be honest, a lot of the songs in that category sound really similar, specifically trance. All I'm saying is to get some hip hop on there. Not mine, but like the really good artists, you know? Just to change up the portal a bit and bring more people into hip hop, cause quite frankly, NG is made up of mostly electronic and VG music lovers, which isn't bad, but I think Hip Hop deserves a bit more attention. Anyway, that's just my rant if you have anything to say to make me look stupid, go ahead, if you have anything to back me up on, go ahead of the others, lmao.

What's up everyone. I was on youtube one day when I stumbled across these two kick ass producers called Mysto and Pizzi. If you haven't seen their videos you gotta check 'em out. They make some dope stuff! I learned a lot from watching their vids and if you have time you should definatly take the time to listen to their stuff.

What's up everyone. Thanks to Two-Shekels idea. I think I'm gonna do a few remixes of my older songs. They won't just be better EQd and stuff. I'm gonna basically re-do them. Kinda like what I did with Hit 'Em Hard. So if there's any tracks you want me to remix, leave a comment!

Hey, if you have Reason and make beats or if you rap, get at me for a collab. Don't be shy, I like working with other people, and we could make some dope shiznit, lol.
Also, I'm gonna delete all my demos, previews because there's really no need to have them anymore.

I make my music real simply.
First, I make my drums. I find the sounds I want, add some effects to them, (reverb, distortion) and make a drum pattern sometimes they're complicated and sometimes they're simple. This takes me a maximum of 20 minutes.
Second, I make a melody. I find an instrument I like and that would go well with the drums and I just play random crap on the keyboard until I find something I like. This takes from 2 minutes to 30 minutes. (big difference, I know, haha)
Third, I add instruments to go along with the melody. This takes about 30 minutes.
Finally, I layer and move stuff around to create verses and such. This takes 15 minutes.
So in general, I make my stuff pretty fast and I'm not sure if that's good or bad, lol.
