Very fine minimal rap, pregnant bass, but somewhere the percussion is too harsh for my ear.

I forgot to wear a condom when I made the bass line… ;) It’s still in the first trimester so I am surprised you noticed!

Was there some Air Force 1 in there at the beginning? I like the soft musical pad elements. What kind of filter did you use on the drums?

Thanks for the remix and for setting me straight on the bpm!

Yes! That sound in the beginning supposed to be a reference to Airforce One or American power or something. I was hoping to find a sample of a Bush speech or something… or gunfighting or something.

Nice and groovy. I love those sounds you’ve got in there. Drum, bassline and that high key/bell(?). I’m definately going to sample that. : )

It’s actually a sample of a processed piano on NNXT. I made the melody and chords though. It’s definitely samle-able. :) Normally my grooves are complex but I enjoy trying to restrain myself and minimalizing things… :) I was really trying to focus on production and mixing here.

Yes, I like bells as well, they remind me Thomas Newman style….and airplane makes it even more “soundtrack”.
