I like this intro—very smooth.
The way the vocals pan about works.

The bumpin’ beat is good, and it works well with the vocals.

I wonder if you might use an extended break rather than another vocalist, with some cool horn interlude or maybe a solo over beats.

I like this one.

If you want the vocals replaced with something else than rap i thing a more dominant baseline is needed. Some adittional horns would aslo do good if u wanna ad somekind of chorus.

Steady bangin beat and very clean sound. Tell me if u need any vocals. Id be happy to help out:)

Been singing since i could talk :) Iv just got a hold of a studio where i can record aswell, but things might take a while. I cant record for free yet and im a very poor man.

Ill send something as fast as i can.

Don’t replace Tru Ski…This is hott! My speakers are blown, so I can’t hear the bass, but I really like this…Somethin that u ride and smoke to!

Nice work cdk. Lower the bass a bit on the beats, and lower the volume on the vocals, and I think everything will be sittin’ pretty.

I happen to like the track alot.

I think you did pretty well (to not have us actually in the studio with you.) Let’s keep this a demo mix.

Keep true ski on the track too!

He adds a nice vibe too it..

We’ve got more surprises on the way:) right cdk?

Next sweet, funky track. I like this deeep, punchy kick and trumpets. Very modern;-)Great musical/vocal collab.

Man! this is so-slow-cool. For me all matches: the trumpes, the bassline, the beats the voices. Smooth arrangements..Very nice to listen.

This is a really nice track. I’m not into hip-hop and rap so I wasn’t sure about the vocals but about halfway through the song I was groovin’ to it. Everything fits nicely in the mix.
Personally though I think a little variance in the trumpets would help. They sound fabulous but too repetitive. I love the groove though!

How could someone not give this a HIGH 5.
Great sax, great mix, GREAT JOB.
Been Bumping In my Ipod all week, just got around to saying thanks for the head nod.
Thanks CDK,TruSki,Justto and K

Yeah, this track sounds gutter and underground.

You looped those horns nicelyand then those drums just THUMP into the mix, a head nod entrancing banger.

At first I thought that the bass line should be louder or fatter, but maybe you didn’t want it to compete too much with the horns. Everything fits and it thumps.

Truski and KCentric compliment the flow nicely, spits the rite lines with the beat, keeping the flow.

Yeah, certifiably fiyahbombing.
