  1. Hello, my friend and I have recently started a hip-hop collective. We currently have two rappers and three producers. We would like to bring a vocalist into our group who is comfortable performing over soulful cloud rap and lo-fi instrumentals as well as more aggressive instrumentation. We want someone who can commit to the collective for a long period of time and can work well with others. We all want to grow and support the other members of the group so if you're a singer looking for consistent producer or rapper collaborators this may be a good fit for you. If you're interested please e-mail me at enigmatictheubiquitous@gmail.com with links to your music. Here are links to the music of our current members: https://soundcloud.com/azuretheparadox https://soundcloud.com/mantisthemiasma https://5711fith.bandcamp.com/ https://soundcloud.com/prophetproductions99 https://soundcloud.com/yourehomeearly
  2. Lean On Me

    Instrumental: http://vocaroo.com/i/s1DoMz3TmVrP Sometimes in our lives we all have pain We all have sorrow But if we are wise We know that there's always tomorrow [Hook] Lean on me, when you're not strong And I'll be your friend I'll help you carry on For it won't be long 'Til I'm gonna need Somebody to lean on [Verse 1] Never been in a situation I couldn't deal with This for the ones who thinking that pills will not make them feel it Everybody makes mistakes, it's not your problem Even if you feel you deserve to be at the bottom This for the ones who think they need help, 24/7 When you never feel okay and you're stuck on sadness You think the pain and stress is something that you cannot fathom You think there is no way that you can ever get to heaven But this is why you got me, why you got a friend, When you think you're all alone just remember (Bill Withers) We all need somebody to lean on When you open your door, and you see nothing but rain Nothing but rain and darkness so you sad again (Bill Withers) We all need somebody to lean on [Hook] Lean on me, when you're not strong And I'll be your friend I'll help you carry on For it won't be long 'Til I'm gonna need Somebody to lean on [Bridge] So just call on me brother, when you need a hand We all need somebody to lean on I just might have a problem, that you'll understand We all need somebody to lean on [Verse 2] You know you got me right? There is no reason for you to be sad When you're feeling down just know that i'm right here to make you glad Turn bad feelings into good ones Flip the frown upside down Take your anger and sorrow Just turn it around And if you don't wanna talk, I won't make a sound I'll bring my tone down but i don't know if you hear me now And sometimes it don't even gotta be face to face But Ima let you know that you can always just, just (Bill Withers) Call me, if you need a friend Call me, oh baby now Call me, if you need a friend Call me ... yeah ever need me Call me, call me Call me, call me Call me, call me Call me, call me Call me, if you need a friend Call me, call me Call me, call me Call me, call me Call me, call me Call me [Outro (Crowd Singing)] Lean on me, when you're not strong And I'll be your friend I'll help you carry on For it won't be long 'Til I'm gonna need Somebody to lean on So just call on me brother, when you need a hand We all need somebody to lean on I just might have a problem, that you'll understand We all need somebody to lean on
  3. Greetings all, Project Intro: I'm working on a remix that is loosely based on "Simple and Clean" and "Sanctuary" by Utada Hikaru from Disney's Kingdom Hearts. The goal of the production is to uniquely blend the two songs together with an end result features new instrumentation, a completely original arrangement, and new orchestration, while adding new lyrical content based on ironic/metaphoric references to Kingdom Hearts framed as a (tragic) love song. It will take some work, but if could be both a challenging, fun, and well rewarding project. The track will feature two rappers, and two singers with plans for a guitarist to help fill the rest of the track. I've already begun production and am shooting for a release within the next few months. A studio performance video is planned as a YouTube release. What I'm looking for: What I need help with is the lyrical content for the two singers throughout the verses (predominately lead by a female vocal). Being able to use metaphoric references in a cleaver and non cheesy way is critical here. It also helps if you're familiar with Kingdom Hearts to draw some inspiration from. If you are not familiar with KH, no worries! I created a document that I can share that holds a host of references, as well as abridged story breakdowns and a few key fan highlights for you to digest and aid in your writing. Why this: The project aligns with a user demographic that I'm trying to capture, also considering the content of this nature is popular on my YouTube channel aka my previous video game covers. I figured, I want to give this group something special and something as epic. And, since Kingdom Hearts is a popular subject right now (considering the upcoming full number release), I figured it also gives up opportunity to capitalize on upcoming search quires as the new game gets closer to release....should we hit things on time. Lets also not forget that I think it'd be both a fun project and a nice proof of concept for myself and others for a quality production. Scope: The final production will be completely free to download and listen to on SoundCloud and YouTube. Should it do well, it will be part of another project called Project Kingdom XIII, an EP of remixes and covers based again around Kingdom Hearts. Apply: Please send me some of your lyric samples to me at kjxdamu5@gmail.com . I may or may not be able to reply to each submission. If I do not, I apologize in advance. Please tell me a little about yourself and why you think you're a fit for this project. If you have any concerns or questions, please send them to me at the above address along with your samples. Thank you and looking forward to working with you!

  5. Taken

    I've written some lyrics and actually had a melody come to me while writing them. Someone I met on Facebook liked it enough to put some music to it. Then he had a singer record it. (she sang it exactly the way I did, so I think it's a compliment.) I'd like your opinion on it. I don't like critique with both barrels though, just the truth. Thanx Here are the lyrics: One good girl Has good boys Raises them right Workin through school Shots fired Wrong wrong Taken We hear sirens Watch the news Can’t believe No tomorrow We grieve Gone gone Taken Taken too young Her dreams are done So many songs left unsung tell me who won? Won this damn war Not like before Riot back and forth swing open the door stop it don’t ignore don’t ignore Taken Taken Taken too young Her dreams are done So many songs left unsung Taken Taken Taken 5-9-17.mp3

  14. You

    Looking for some feedback, I want to know if it's worth to continue this because I'm using a similar rhyme scheme for another song and I'd have to choose one of the two for a release, this is the first and only verse I have so far for this song; Head over heels for you Blood I would spill for you Always been here for you T'was what I was instilled to do Lent an ear for you, Spent a year with you Then he appeared to you, you smeared me away was it even clear to you? What this thing meant to me? Now you're dead to me, No respect for you? What you expect to see Forget what I said to you and don't lecture me I think I'm bout to puke remembering your face pressed to me You were my ecstasy I even begged to be Next to you, but what lead to be A tragedy of a fantasy But I pulled up my pants to see If we had a chance to be (then it would proceed to the chorus if I had one, preferably ending with "fell" as I start the verse with "head over heels with you")

  17. First Song

    Hello, this is my first hip-hop lyric I'll be posting on here. [Verse 1] Kill it with every syllable Reciprocal Killer Placement of unreasonable statements Going in and out of relations In an abusive relationship with my tracks Beat the beat in half Murder Every ----ing track Step Back or I'll shatter you across my bars, Alcatraz The name's nurse so the track's are lucky, They the illest, we're the realest Every person tries to kill us but I'm just too in this Step outside the basement, the underground, y'all are finished If you think you got the idea? Boy I ain't finished, Rapping these days is just a business But I do it for survival, screw their sentence Yea they just serve a sentence, they'll be gone soon I got business in my rap, not business from the booms I don't want to be forgotten in just 5 years By the end of the century? Ill be threepac, open your ears Hah, Line of the century, All these people missed it they busy with society They mad at me for being so good, reversed psychologied [Hook] I'm whats real What's the deal Boy, you ain't even got the skill Yea I'm whats real What's the deal They in it for the business, I'm in it cause I'm skilled [Verse 2] Damn, people looking at me like Im Marilyn Monroe When these girls come through I'm carrying them home All I want is a girl for my own But that's a little off topic, lets get back to the ER zone Yea I be killing the funds like Im EE Cummings Shunning me, you can't, I got them running You trying to kill me, but I was already underground, keep on coming Screw these blogs man, screw these hogs man I hate ham, so I'm not even going there People hated me? He ain't even going there He's a machine, cyborg, but he ain't even showing it He's got a crew, and they help him with his nerves and ish He's got a new b---, and now he's all ahead again [Hook] I'm whats real What's the deal Boy, you ain't even got the skill Yea I'm whats real What's the deal They in it for the business, I'm in it cause I'm skilled

  20. My name is Justin and I produce music of all genres. I have 2 albums out right now. The first is a post-hardcorish which was influenced by bands like Dance Gavin Dance, Circa Surive, and Silverstein. You can listen to it here : http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL_T0mouN4nvgcSugobL-5t2v_7oKiNOlD The second is my album "Sex Dance Explosion" it is an experiment in Dance,Hip-Hop, Pop, and R&B. The best I can describe it is as if Usher, Justin Timberlake, and LMFAO had a baby it might sound something like this. Each song is very different from the other, so if you don't like one please listen to another, you might be surprised. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL_T0mouN4nvjFCPdBBMTOh_YYRdeVlFuL You can download all my songs for free here at http://justinchase.bandcamp.com just click buy now and enter 0.00 if you want them for free. It's name your own price so any donations would be greatly appreciated. Then finally I have an old angry eminem style rap single http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kczpD1K_P6w
  21. Hey guys, I've just started a new solo project, everything that I will link you guys to is completely original: FACEBOOK PAGE: https://www.facebook.com/alextreharnemusic SOUNCLOUD: https://soundcloud.com/alex-t-a-treharne In terms of influence I was predominately concerned with rock music when I was younger, listening to a lot of Jellyfish/Badfinger/The Beatles, I fell in love with the melodic work of the 60’s and 70’s and I think that comes through in the tracks, particularly the guitar work. I tend to put down a riff or track a beat from samples first and work the melody in later, slightly untraditional but it’s how I work best. I am primarily a guitarist/vocalist and come from a performance background and as such I’m not a natural behind the buttons in the studio. I did a lot of work last year with a guy called Ed Sanders who’s recently had Radio 1 airtime with his project Xander The Great. He introduced me to the world of RnB and hip-hop – artists like the Weeknd and Frank Ocean and I listened to a lot of soul at this point aswell, Bill Withers and Otis Redding in particular. At the moment I can’t get enough of Bastille and Jamie Woon, Maroon 5 have been making a big comeback in my iTunes aswell – Songs About Jane is probably my favourite album currently. My work rate has been pretty good so there will be lots of demos coming through soon and hopefully you’ll give them a listen. I’m very much still in the early stages of this project and the sound is constantly evolving at the moment. I’m working out of a room in Central London and I think that comes through in the sound of the demos so far, they’re very raw and need to be polished. The plan is to spend a lot of time in a studio over the next few months in order to arrive at a sound that I am happy with. Cheers ALECS.

  23. Hey there guys! As some of you may have heard from a previous post of mine, once I get at least 1000 plays on ONE song off of my SoundCloud, they will automatically promote me to there new "SoundCloud Next", which is a more social networking friendly version of SoundCloud. And as a bonus they will let me keep the 200+ followers I already have! So if you have a sec, I would GREATLY appreciate it if you could give this a listen: http://soundcloud.com/trav206/id-like-to-believe

    Hey if anyone has the time, it'd be great if you could give this a listen and let me know what you think. I know the overall recording quality isn't great on this, but it's one of the best i've released yet and I really want to know what other people think about it. http://soundcloud.com/trav206/id-like-to-believe
  25. Hey! My name is Travis, and I go by T.W. Neu. I am currently saving up to go to school for music/audio production. I mostly make beats for other people up here in Seattle, but I have also been working on my own solo project for a while. And if you could actually give this song a quick listen and let me know what you think of it, that would be greatly appreciated!! http://soundcloud.com/trav206/id-like-to-believe Other than that I'm just a normal dude who goes to work everyday, hang out with friends when I can, but more importantly write and make new material! Thanks, -Travis
