Not on soundcloud yet, as I'm canvassing opinion on whether its shit or not....
A garaged up version of My neck, My Back
Heh, I had the acapella for that years ago and mashed it up with Incubus - Drive . Having a listen now.
Nice job. Sounds like it's asking for a garagey two step loop on it, and maybe a big nasty wobbly bassline breakdown
Breakdowns isn't something I'm too good at
hey sim, my constructive criticism is that i like it but it could do with some variation - the main melody with, what are they, some kind of bells, woodblocks? gets a bit repetitive...one thing people do in footwork is just pitch that same thing down an octave as a variation, but maybe dropping it out in place of another element would work too. im also not sure about that sound that sounds like a cuddly toy squeek/bleet at the end of every phrase....maybe its okay, but it repeats a bit too much for me. .... i reckon just generally more variation and fucking around with the elements that are there...definitley on the right track though.
i didnt realise you were making tunes...have you got any more online anywhere?
tune was stuck in my head all day sim
Cheers dude, I know it needs some more variation, but you know when you've listened to something so many times you can't hear it any other way? I'm gonna keep fiddling and play about more.
This is probably the most polished one I've made for sure but I've got a couple of others on soundcloud, not quite there, but could be a lot more horrific.

ska invita & Chemical needs
Really like the overall sound and what you're doing with it. Here's some hopefully constructive feedback/ ideas for progression.
I'm still yearning for more syncopation to get the rhythm going - there's lots of movement and energy urging the rhythm forward, and I think that some slightly more in your face hi hats/ shakers/ syncopated snares/ shuffley bits will really get it grooving.
Also think that the vocal is quite static and would benefit from some rhythmic pitched snippets of pussy and crack sprinkled around... maybe some glitchy type edits and chops?
I like the descending knocking type bass at 1:02 and I think you could make more of that by maybe pitching it up an octave in a couple of places for emphasis, or maybe layer an octaved up version on top and maybe detune and distort it a bit? Maybe the layered higher pitch/ distorted/ detuned knocking bass sound could work as a sort of lead or higher pitched melodic element?
Maybe a little drop at 1:22 - 1:25, or at the end of the next phrase, with a little fast repeating vocal build? Something like
"and and and and and a.a.a.a.a and my crack"
Apologies if I went on a bit, not enough sleep and stressful day, and envious of having inspiration to produce
thanks Chemical needs, I've copied that into a note, and will have a read..... I'm going to be honest, I'm sick of hearing that fucking tune, my problem is always over complicating things I think, and thats what I've done, yet it just sounds soul-less.
SO I knocked this one up today, again, needs working, the bassline might be a bit droney I think, but its certainly got some oomph in it
edit: ive dicked about some more, two new files, cant decide between 2 step or 4x4.

Nice works either way really!
The problem with working with any tune is you get sick to death of it. Like it is an annoying advert.
Right, its pretty much finalised, but im gonna make a couple of tweaks on my freinds monitors.
But: its on soundcloud, its changed a bit more too today
I played it through the funktion 1's...... its a chest vibrator.
My daughters brother has just got a copy of fl studio..this is his first upload..
Is you daughters brother not your son? I suppose not or you would have said.
Not really my cup of tea but might appeal more to youngsters!
Yeah mr ski .. its a very long story ! I think of him as my son but as im mates with his dad it can get confusing.
hes a great kid and just getting into making music which ive recently learnt to do..he wants me to help him make an ep , so im chuffed.
He's worked out triplets..... I still haven't worked out triplets....
Can he dj or anything? That will really help him learn bar structuring (not that mines great, but its one thing that I've found easier to understand due to it).
Another one I've been playing around with...... I need to sort the claps out after the second drop, they sound a bit of beat I think
And something a bit faster........ (explicit, don't listen with kids/family etc around).
You have to have a dropbox account to get your files.. i think there is a way you can make them totally public..
i do have an acount though..will check them out later..gotta find my login stuff and password first..
Oh that's annoying. I'll look into it. Thanks
i got my dropbox login sorted but your files arent there any more.. a 403 error .. technology works..lol

A bit of an experiment in 5/4 time, I'm not sure it worked (i.e. I managed to properly establish a 5/4 time signature) though:
Just listened to Dirty 200 bpm in the garden...Great stuff.. im sure ill get an asbo in the post.. lol
Was just reading a chiptune tutorial from computer music magazine..making a few sounds similar to those on s k 4 satan.. nice one
Dont ask about time signatures..i can barely tell the time..
heres a track off a compilation thats just been released..
If your ever up for a collab gis a shout.. i need a kick up the arse..
