  1. Hello again, Out with another song, different than the others as usual Still unsure about how I feel about this song... sometimes I listen to it and vibe and other times its just "meh" haha. Would love to hear your thoughts on what worked and what didn't! Lyrics are below as well Lyrics: Its a small town feeling, something that those city kids sure been missing. You hear the talk, you seen her walk, she gets the whole place looking. There’s bout a billion other fish in the sea, but something tells me she’s the one for me. But every guy who lays eyes on her, says the same damn thing. She's so notorious, by the way she flip her hair. Notorious, for making everybody stare. Notorious, she’s just the girl next door, but she’ll make you think you’re living in a barbie world. Yeah, you the town’s most wanted, Oh go ahead and flaunt it. Yeah, every guy already know it, you’re notorious, just show it. She’s a force of nature, play it cool she gon’ stun ya like a laser. A Class A distraction, trust me when I say she’s only looking for reaction. Oh yeah, don’t waste your goods moves, save it for someone who will notice you. If somebody hasn’t told you, imma fill you in. She's so notorious, by the way she flip her hair. Notorious, for making everybody stare. Notorious, she’s just the girl next door, but she’ll make you think you’re living in a barbie world. Yeah, you’re the town’s most wanted, Oh go ahead and flaunt it. Yeah, every guy already know it, you’re notorious, go ahead and show it. N-O-T-O-R-I-O-U-S, you’re notorious so notorious Aim steady, close in on who’s next, you’re notorious so notorious I want, to be free, cut the shackles take your chains off me (come on). Lets face, reality, its better anyway. She's so notorious (oh yeah), for the way she flip her hair. Notorious (oh yeah), for making everybody stare. Notorious, she’s just the girl next door, but she’ll make you think you’re living in a barbie’s world. Yeah, you the town’s most wanted, Oh go ahead and flaunt it (flaunt it for me). Yeah, every guy already know it, she notorious, go ahead and show it.
  2. Enjoy The Silence (new mix 05/07/2017)

    Hi all, I have decided to create a new topic for this one as I have decided to try and get an E.P. ready for release at some point this year. It will be an E.P. of instrumentals. I decided to go back and look at the mix for this track and see if I could improve on the previous version. I have had a lot of decent feedback about this track from family and friends and feel it might be a good starter track for the E.P. It might not be to everyone's taste as it is very electronic, but this is the style I am looking to go for this release. I have also decided to create a website and needed some content, hence the need to go back and do something. I am looking to put up tracks as they are being worked on and the end result to show the process in creating a track. I hope to do a video like this at some point, but need to find the time to do that. Anyway, I'll stop rambling and ask if you wouldn't mind having a listen and let me know what you think.... Cheers R https://soundcloud.com/moodman-1/enjoy-the-silence-2nd-mix-05072017-2054
  3. Help Me Please! :D

    So I roughly created this chorus to a song I'm interested in creating in about 3 hours. I'm pretty new to making music (so don't yell at me about no mixing lol) I am currently at a stuck point. I made this melody, and I REALLY REALLY like it. I have some chords and drums. The problem is I don't think the melody fits the BPM. It may not be the BPM but something just doesn't sound right. Maybe the drums are too fast for it. I don't know. That's why I wanted some of you geniuses to help me! What should I do differently? Here is a link to a video of my project.
  4. Lyin' (Studio Version)

    Hey guys new song! Any critique would be appreciated. Again, I went for a chill/cloud rap vibe. Lyrics: They be lyin when they talk; They be lyin when they talk; Lyin when they talk; They be lyin when they tallk; Lyin when they they talk; They be lyin when they talk; On the gram they be posting; But I know that its nonsense; girls photoshopping rappers they be flopping; When I flow there's no stopping; These rappers they are dodging: Saying that they're trapping; But they're fake... No ones clapping; I am walking I am running they be talking they be Bunning; But they're fake and they know it cause they ain't on nothing; They be lying about my history; Keeping that away from me; They're leaving me blind; So now I cant survive; They be lying when they teach; They be lying all week; They wont tell me the truth; Keep me from my roots; They be fasting all month then eat pork when its done; Tell you off for haram but they don't do halal; They be lyin when they talk; They be lyin when they talk; Lyin when they talk; They be lyin when they tallk; Lyin when they they talk; They be lyin when they talk; This is more than fun I just burnt my tounge; Spit fire from my lungs guess I'm burning 'em; Give me beats; ill murder 'em; Walk streets in Birmingham with a turban on and fit right in like I'm part of 'em; We're all one I don't part with 'em all my boys got heart in 'em; They're permanent there's no hurting 'em; The best of them dont depend; Just pray to god that's medicine; I'm blessed to be from Leamington; We ain't peddling but still feds meddling; Give us problems like we're menacing; We're just working tryina get some money in; Tryina get a million apparently I look militant; Not intelligent but I'm trying write like im tennyson; I'm heaven sent I'm ready son if you wanna go we're battling; MCs need to listen to what I'm tellin em; MCs hate enemies talk about shellin em; I filter out their lies like sediment; I'm adamant I'm shelving em keep your bullshit to the mimum; Think your powerful Ozymandias; Your reign will fall just check the script: Looking at me all envious; You know I'm like Odysseus; They miss this shit a true lyricist who's bringing it;
  5. ******* ANOTHER UPDATE BELOW IN THE COMMENTS ******** **** UPDATE BELOW IN THE COMMENTS **** Hi all, Started this one last night, but came up with the lyrical idea today so decided to record some vocals. Still not sure if this works, especially the bits in between the verses. This is not a typical song structure and will not have a chorus. The bits in between need more work and some extra things going on as does the verses. The ending will not stay the way it is, I did this just to have something there. I'm just wondering whether it is working at the moment. I think the lyrics need a bit of work, but does the general feel of the idea seem okay? Is the vocal delivery okay, does it work? I have an idea for something floating around the solo piano at the beginning of the track, so will probably keep it the length it is. Cheers to anyone who has a listen. https://soundcloud.com/moodman-1/talking-to-spiders-24062017-2032/s-YE881 TALKING TO SPIDERS (music and words by Richard Tracey) This Is the place Where you fear to go A no man's land You must Try again To fight through this I know you can win Hide In your cave From the rest of the world Be all alone Are you Talking to spiders Or are you Going out of your mind How Many times Must you lose To pick yourself up You must Try and try again To be the best That you can become
  6. Heroes (UPDATED - v2 11/06/2017)

    Hi all - I decided to give this one another go today after having a conversation with @john (who helped identify the problem with the chorus seeming off). I have had another shot at the mix and a new vocal (not the finished vocal - still a temp). Looking for any feedback on this slightly changed version. - I have removed all other details from my original post to keep it tidy.

  7. Hello all! I'm back again with a new pop song called "Girl Across the Bar". Tried some news things out as usual, but I love the bass-iness of the instrumental and hope that the lyrics I wrote fit well Thanks for listening, and tell me your thoughts! Edit: I worked with someone on this song and I was just responsible for the lyrics and vocals so I would particularly like critique on those sections since those are the ones I have control over at the moment Lyrics: You sitting real pretty over there, sipping on a drink while you’re playing with your hair oh-oh, baby You got my friends laughing at me, asking me ayyo whats it gonna be oh-oh. Oh am I outta my mind, because you’re something divine, and it kills me. I think I’m gonna make my move, because I wanna get with you, oh baby. Hey you, to the girl across the bar, you’re real cute, and I’d like to meet ya. I know I ain’t some superstar but we can still have fun, I know how to treat ya right. Bartender, get her what she like, swear I’m gonna treat you like a queen tonight. Feeling like I’ve known you for a long time, but baby it ain’t even been for a whole night. Hey you, to the girl across the bar, I’m so glad that I got to meet ya. Lets take a ride in a stolen car, drivin fast through the city with your head on my shoulder. Maybe its just for tonight, so baby here’s my number call me if you’d like. It don’t matter where we are, you’ll always be my girl across the bar. Let me ask you one thing, when you came for the night did you know you’d be looking for love? Maybe? Oh-oh, tryna start something new, hoping that somebody would fall for you, tonight… Oh when I walked in the room, tell me ya felt something too, like its magic. Feel like I’m running out of time, if I wanna make you mine, oh baby. Hey you, to the girl across the bar, you’re real cute, and I’d like to meet ya. I know I ain’t some superstar but we can still have fun, I know how to treat ya right. Bartender, get her what she like, swear I’m gonna treat you like a queen tonight. Feeling like I’ve known you for a long time, but baby it ain’t even been for a whole night. Hey you, to the girl across the bar, I’m so glad that I got to meet ya. Lets take a ride in a stolen car, drivin fast through the city with your head on my shoulder. Maybe its just for tonight, so baby here’s my number call me if you’d like. It don’t matter where we are, you’ll always be my girl across the bar. Take a chance cause you’ll never ever know if you don’t, This world is better when you’re not on your own. Nobody ever knows where anything goes, Got your eyes on me we don’t need to take it slow, slow, slow. Come on baby, living like its the last night of our lives. Like the things we do don’t matter till the sun rise. They say YOLO, you only live one life, Imma make the most of it imma take you in my arms tonight. Hey you, to the girl across the bar, you’re real cute, and I’d like to meet ya. I know I ain’t some superstar but we can still have fun, I know how to treat ya right. Bartender, get her what she like, swear I’m gonna treat you like a queen tonight. Feeling like I’ve known you for a long time, but baby it ain’t even been for a whole night.

  9. Everybody Needs a Friend

    Hello! Would love some critique and feedback on a song I wrote and recorded myself (with the exception of my sister also singing). We perform under the band name We're All Just Passing Through and we're from Long Island, NY. It's always great to receive feedback from other songwriters. Thank you! ~Travis https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WobNfFw_uFA
  10. I Know (UPDATED)

    **** I DID A LITTLE WORK ON THIS EARLIER - ADDED SOME EXTRA INSTRUMENTATION AND BASS (FOR STEVE). I HAVEN'T RE-RECORDED THE VOCALS YET, BUT INTEND TO DO THAT NEXT AT SOME POINT THIS WEEK. I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY COMMENTS ON THE NEW MIX AND EXTRA INSTRUMENTATION... CHEERS THE NEW MIX IS FURTHER DOWN THE PAGE - WILL KEEP THE ORIGINAL HERE, IF ANYONE WANTS TO HEAR THE DIFFERENCE **** Hi all - this track is composed using the new Output Analog Strings and drums by Battery 4 (not really happy with them listening back). I will be adding more instrumentation and harmonies, but just looking for opinions so far. It is deliberate that I have kept the same pattern going throughout with slight changes. (Once I had got this far, I thought it was sounding like something else - if you have heard Dream To Sleep by H2O or Something Good by Paul Haig - you may think it sounds familiar!!! ) Hope you like... https://soundcloud.com/moodman-1/i-know-15042017-2115/s-pYc2E I KNOW (music/lyrics by Richard Tracey) If there was a little moment For me to be by myself Then I would take it Every once in a while If there was a little time That I could put aside for me Then I know I would be A better person for it I know I know If there was a little high To go with all of the lows Then I know I could See the clearing from the trees I know I know If there was a little feeling In amongst all the pain Then I know I'd live The life I'd want for me I know I know All the little things that make me feel this way All the little things that I need to do today I know I know I know
  11. Song about naughty stuff...

    Hi all. I've recorded a song, and would love to you guys' and gals' opinions on it. It's a rough mix, a bit out of balance especially in the coda. Please let me know what you think! Update: New version: https://soundcloud.com/will-sketches/rock-with-your-love-new-demo Old version: https://soundcloud.com/willem-h-de-boer/rock-with-your-love-additional-vocals
  12. Here is my newest song, would appreciate any feedback at all! Thank you!
  13. LoFi Dance Rock

    Hey Everyone, I haven't been on here for a while, but I've been doing a good deal of songwriting and am excited to listen to some of your songs and write some critiques again. Any critiques of this song would be a great help! About my song, the mix isn't great and the vocal track needs some cleaning up (sorry for the mouth noises), but that stuff will come after it's fully written and recorded more carfully. I'm thinking I'll have a real drummer and bass player come in replace the programmed drums and my sketchy bass track, does that seem like a good idea or do you like what I have? Thanks! Lyrics: Bear in mind my shitty rhyme scheme Go ahead and say what you mean In my head my words don’t come off Nearly as first grade as they seem Cause I’ve been wasting my time And now I’m wasting your time, you’ll see Unrelenting words cementing My own elementary school dreams, what does it mean? I almost hope nobody listens Maybe then I’ll get off scot-free I doubt it but we’ll see Cause I’ve been wasting my time And now I’m wasting your time, you’ll see This is evidence that I've been wasting my time
  14. Beyond The Veil

    Hi all, started this track earlier while I was trying out the demo's for Rob Papen's Blue 2 and Output's Signal. The drums are Battery 4 and played by me (for a change). The vocal is a first take to give me a feel for what is working and what needs fixed. Need to do extra lyrics as these were the start of something I wrote a while back and forgot about, but they went with this piece. There is still to be more instruments added and a slight tweak of the arrangement, but I am hoping it feels like it is working, so I am looking for some advice for what is working, not working etc. Cheers Richard https://soundcloud.com/moodman-1/beyond-the-veil-09042017-1825 BEYOND THE VEIL (lyrics and music by Richard Tracey) Like de-ja-vu I saw the soul in you A heart that was so pure A moment frozen in time Unspoken words Hanging in midair Full of love and care The feelings were sublime And in that moment I realised I had passed Beyond the Veil Beyond the Veil No-one needs to know No-one needs to see Just what happened To me To me
  15. So I'm a 17 year old producer and have always just made beats for others to rap/sing over - but today I decided to actually try and feature myself on one of my recent beats. Personally I have mixed feelings towards the track but I would love to hear other opinions on it! Thanks in advance! - CT
  16. 6x8

    I wrote this as a sequel to Me, Myself & I to let my son know what will happen if he ever decides to stray off the right path he's been on. 6 x 8 is about not learning from the first time about getting into trouble and drugs with deep regret wishing you had your life back. Freedom and peace Thank you in advance for any critique you can offer me to improve it. CHORUS: C’mon yeah, c’mon it’s like that, It’s like that No mirrors to look at in my 6x8 Surrounded by hard walls that can’t even break My knuckles, my knuckles They gone pay for mistakes I want my life back now But I know it’s too late No mirror to look at in my 6x8 Surrounded by hard walls I can’t even break My knuckles, my knuckles They gone pay for mistakes I want my life back now But I know it’s too late With my head to my knees And the gavel they slamming down Before the man in the gown I knew what was going down I had my life back once But look how I took it for granted I had my freedom and peace But damn it for a moment I had it An addict addicted to trouble Dealing and smoking dope And now I’m only dealing with Noodles and a pack of smokes I had the comfort of home to pee where it’s quiet Now I’m pissing in the prison Surrounded by riots CHORUS: No mirror to look at in my 6x8 Surrounded by hard walls that can’t even break My knuckles, my knuckles They gone pay for mistakes I want my life back now But I know it’s too late No mirror to look at in my 6x8 Surrounded by hard walls that can’t even break My knuckles, my knuckles They gone pay for mistakes I want my life back now But I know it’s too late I stayed hungry Every day they feeding you crap But beggars can not be choosers So I’m throwing it back In line to take a fast shower They only give you minutes At home I swear I used to take a half an hour Tighty whities man I don’t even wear these Boxers, designer belts and Pants hung to my knees Had the comforts at home freedom and peace But I’m in my 6x8 And don’t even know my release CHORUS: No mirror to look at in my 6x8 Surrounded by hard walls I can’t even break My knuckles, my knuckles They gone pay for mistakes I want my life back now But I know it’s too late No mirror to look at in my 6x8 Surrounded by hard walls I can’t even break My knuckles, my knuckles They gone pay for mistakes I want my life back now But I know it’s too late Couldn’t stay away from trouble Or learn right from wrong Should of listened to the words Of another song I was young and stupid I spent some time in Juvie In the big house now Where I swore I would never would be Wishing I was at work And making all that bread And listening to the speakers Pumping in my head Ain’t no beats up here Some people rapping now Sometimes I hear them shout Get me the f*ck out CHORUS: No mirror to look at in my 6x8 Surrounded by hard walls I can’t even break My knuckles, my knuckles They gone pay for mistakes I want my life back now But I know it’s too late No mirror to look at in my 6x8 Surrounded by hard walls I can’t even break My knuckles, my knuckles They gone pay for mistakes I want my life back now But I know it’s too late
  17. Me, Myself & I

    I have only written country songs in the past. I wrote my first rap song back in 2016 & just had it produced last month. It is dedicated and inspired by my son who had some rough experiences in the early stages of his life. (That is him in the video). Thank you in advance for any critique you may offer. Now I know It’s only me myself and I I’ll stay solo No one else that I’ll rely From now on I know I’m gonna be alright Keep movin on I’m never gonna be defied I lost all my pride Things slipped through my hands Don’t have much to say Know I’ve blown my chance Once a dreamer Now I’ll pay the cost of wasting all of those days If I had my dirt bike still I would ride away, I would ride away, back to my hiding place Taking from others only robbed myself Of the goodness in my life & all the things I felt The things I did, I will not mention Not looking back and surrendering to the temptation Tripping, dealing and smoking I’ve been there and I’ve done that Sober, healing, hustling Currently where I’m at And I’ve been staring in the mirror with blood shot eyes I need help from three wise men…me, myself and I And my homies, my homies They gon end up in the sky Death is not up in my plans, I've got me, myself and I In the mirror is me I’m facing, In the mirror is me I’m facing Sometimes it’s hard to face him Sometimes it’s hard to face him Now I know It’s only me myself and I I’ll stay solo No one else that I’ll rely From now on I know I’m gonna be alright Keep movin on I’m never gonna be defied I left that night watching sister and mama cry To clear my head ask myself all the reasons why What made me do this? And what I’ve become? Only hurting myself, sister, daddy and mom A death trap just waiting in the wings I need to get out do bigger better things And to speak the truth no matter how it hurts Respect and loyalty is what they deserve I want the comforts of home To be where it’s quiet Not in the prison cell Finding myself in the center of a riot I wanna turn the key Have freedom and peace You can’t do that in the prison cell When you surrounded by all the police Been staring in the mirror with blood shot eyes I need help from three wise men…me, myself and I And my homies, my homies They gon end up in the sky Death is not up in my plans, I've got me, myself and I The devil hit me hard Yeah, he knocked me down But I got back up and I stood my ground Now I know It’s only me myself and I I’ll stay solo No one else that I’ll rely From now on I know I’m gonna be alright Keep movin on I’m never gonna be defied Now I know It’s only me myself and I I’ll stay solo No one else that I’ll rely From now on The devil won’t destroy me I know I’m gonna be alright Got me, myself & I Keep movin on No he won’t destroy me I’m never gonna be defied Got me, myself & I Keep movin on I will not destroy me I’m never gonna be defied I got me, myself & I Now I know It’s only me, myself & I
  18. Song for critique.

    Hi this is my song 'I'm a crime to commit' Just want everyone to be honest as possible, is it good, bad or ugly. I've changed the lyrics slightly now they are: (Verse) Beautiful bitch, has got my back up against the wall, I'm a crime to commit, but it looks like you done them all. (Pre Chorus) Se--------------e me, see me walking away, then you're love--------ly, makes me wanna stay. (Chorus) Mo---------------------re, more, more, than I bargained for. Mo---------------------re, more, more, than I bargained for. (Verse) She got pi-er-cings, in all the right places, infectious lips, and that way she fakes it. (Pre Chorus) Lo--------------------------ve me, like its the only way, In--------------fect me, with your kiss. (Chorus) Mo---------------------re, more, more than you bargained for, Mo--------------------re, more than you bargained for. (verse) Dan-cing on the tables, she hypnotises me, Long red hair, right down to her knees. (Pre Chorus) Teach me, al the things you know, Infect me, love me until you go. (Chorus) Verse1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFdXhmeUtmI&feature=youtu.be
  19. Guiding Light (WIP)

    Hi all - haven't managed to get on much lately due to work and family commitments, but I started this a couple of weeks ago and meant to have had it finished by now, but can't find the time to continue with it. I am just looking for an overall feel from everyone to see whether the track seems to be working so far. The vocals are a temp at the moment just so I could get a feel for them. The lyrics were something I wrote for one of ImKen's tracks, but felt they worked with this piece. The drums were played by me for a change as I wanted something simple. The instrumental part is nowhere near finished instruments wise, but does it sound better with less and then build it up? What about the vocal harmonies? Any input would be much appreciated as it may give me the kick up the butt to get on with it. Anyway, thanks for listening and I am going to try and devote some time over the weekend to have a listen to the stuff you have all been posting. Cheers Richard https://soundcloud.com/moodman-1/guiding-light-25032017-2327/s-AVXXr
  20. So for those of you who have been on this forum for some time, this is my third song and am exploring yet another genre. Its more "pop"ish, with a hint of Ed Sheeran, but also a nice bass line that gives it a dance-y vibe! Would love critique of the song as a whole!
  21. Press On

    Here's one I tracked last night. I had intended to call it something with Azure in the title, but I realized there's a video game out called " Azure Dreams". I decided to call it " Press On" instead. I thought the mood seemed to fit a kind of struggle going on. I listened to it on the way to work and it seemed a little loud for this genre, I listened on headphones and it seems to have a bit of a bite in it around the 3-5K. Is it just me or do you hear it too? It seems worse on my headphones than with open speakers. Thanks!
  22. Second Instrumental Song

    Hi! Here's a second instrumental song. I wanted it to be pretty chilled and catchy. Any critique is very much appreciated Thanks, Chalter
  23. Hey! This is my first time posting here, and I'm looking for pretty much any suggestions, and criticisms. I'm new at song writing, and I feel pretty lackluster. If you have general comments, or tips to help it would be much appreciated! Thank you for your time :)! Lyrics: You spoke of a willow Tree And being In love I spoke of a burning in my lungs I feel if I don't look away I'll likely turn to stone You point out the Birds returned I'm not sure I would have known You're Sown with pedals and a hope I'm not sure you know
  24. Just finished my second song - it's still very much a first draft and has a few problems, but I'm going with it for now. Any feedback is appreciated greatly! I produce all of my music as well, so any feedback on the instrumental is also welcomed! Thank you!
  25. I'm Not the Bad Guy

    Hi folks Here's a new song that I wrote and recorded. Nits and crits welcome. I'm Not the Bad Guy Written and performed by Staypress V1 I'm sick of saying sorry for things I did not do I'm tired of building bridges so I can get to you V2 I feel like I've been branded a monster among men I think I'll build a time machine and put it right again. Ch I'll admit your jealousy didn't bring out the best in me But I'm not the bad guy i don't deny I lost my cool, being made to feel a fool But I'm not the bad guy V3 I'm tired of feeling guilty for things I should have done I'm sick of being sorry for fights I never won Ch Middle bit I'd be the first to admit I was wrong If you'd allow me to talk that long The thought of you was heavenly, reality was hell Who's the guilty party? You know damn well Ch to end
