I'm new to this Forum
 
Hey what's up? I'm new to this forum and just wanted to get some advice on my tracks. I'm a hip hop artist living in Atlanta. I've been making beats in Reason but don't fully understand how to control every aspect. Here is a link to some of my songs. Inertia, Recoil and my song Black Metal were all done in Reason. I did Black Metal back in 2007. Please shoot me a email so I can network with you Reason users my email is at original.kon@gmail.com My Twitter is OriginalKon and I'm also on facebook at facebook.com/livekonmusic

Thanks in advance!!

Hey man I like the rhymes. The beats are good but I feel like they could use more hi hats or ride. I know you probably left them out on purpose to give ur songs a more raw sound, but I always love hearing the rhythm of the hats and the rhymes line up. Nas for example is great at this. You have great timing being able to stay tight without hats and I think a good hat rhythm would only bring it out even more.

What I think would be cool is if you left the intros and chorus' without hats or ride and bring them in for the verses to bring out the rhythm of your rhymes. That way you will have a nice contrast between raw beats and tight rhythms.

This is just my opinion lol, some people might disagree but I think those couple things will really bring out your skills and draw people into the songs even more.

This is out of my core but I grew up in the time of Public Enemy and Ice T so I have some reference.

I generally hate unreleased RAP (yep that's what this is) but I can get you on this. Really simple music bed (the proper technical term for a Beat) but it is about the story so it can be a strength. The hook hooks and the voice has a nice tone. You do need a change or stab towards the end as there is a wee embarrassing gap just before the last round of chorus to fade.

Second track has started to roll and it is more of the same so you have consistency which is good. This could maybe use a synth pad/string just to hang in there every now and then and create a tension/vibe thing. Bass is too soft.

Impressed. I'll send this link to a local Aussie Hip Hop spitter I know. I think he should hear you. I'm telling him to hook up and collab with you as I think that there is a great track to be made there bridging worlds.
