ere we go...

Track 1
Nice. I like the old school vibe to this one. Bass is ace. The vocals work really well too. I can imagine this being one out on vinyl a good few years back.

Track 2
Love the elec piano! Sounds are well good. This has a good summer vibe.

Track 3
I love this!! I love the use of samples, beats are ace. All together a great tune with an awesome summer vibe. Defo a contender for the prize imo. I really like the switch up too, totaly wasn't expecting it, and i love the "im such a cunt" sample haha

Track 4
Wasn't to sure about this one when it started, what with the mod wheel synth etc, but when the beat came in and all the musical elements i fell in love. Vocal is ace. Beat is ace. Bass is ace. I love this, this is just my type of thing!! Shame about the intro really. Who ever this is can i have a 320 please?? Stand out track imo

Track 5
Drums in this are cool. The stereo effect on the bass is weird, but i like it. Not much of a summer vibe though.

Track 6
Really like the pads in the intro. LOL @ the vocal samples! Nice drums and bass. Comedy track ftw lol

Track 7
wow this intro is good. The breakdown (?) in the intro is a bit empty though, feels as if something else need to be in there. The drop is nice, really good piece of music. Lacks summer vibes for me though.

Track 8
OMG my ears are bleading. Bass is amazing! This HAS to be eski-b right??? Love it! Not summery though.

Track 9
Now this sounds promising. Oh yes!! Vocal is luch, bass is cool, beats are real nice. I really like this one. This has summer written all over it for me, defo a contender.

Track 10
Propper chilled out number. Not very summery though!

Track 11
Now this sounds like summer! Intro sounds as if i goes out a key at points though? Or maybe its just to many notes ringing at once? But yeah, this has summer written all over it! Reminds me a bit of danny byrd actually. Drop is huge. I'm loving this track, defo a contender for the win. 320 please? I think this is specialists track.

Track 12
Wasn't to sure of this when it started, but yeah, i like it now. This is really good, i like it lots!

Track 13
Old school! Yeah not bad. Has all the elements of an old school track.

Getting a bit bored of doing this now........

Track 14
Intro is a really cool idea! Love the trancy vibes. Kinda has the vibes of an 80s pop tune, which is cool. Yeah this is cool, i like! Pretty summery too.

Track 15
Sounds cool. I'd say this is driftas entry, has to be!!! I suspected so when i heared the snare, but the vocals just gave it away lol. yeah this is pretty good. Not a fan of the bass sound though, but eveything is cool. Defo has summer vibes.

Track 16
Another old school tune. It's as good as the old old school tunes. Not my thing tbh

Track 17
Cool! I like the bass, its intense. Yeah, good track.

track 18
oooooo this intro sounds promissing. Cool track. Quite summery

Track 19
Yep good, nice summer vibe.

some nice tracks, i think 8 could have been the most summery if it had stuck with the salsa vibe all the way through with trumpets and marrackas n stuff. really wanna make a salsa vibe track now.

@14 By far my favourite, might be something to do with me using the same track as a bass for my BBQ & Bass entry last year and me really liking the original song. Really loved the intro! Think the track as a whole could be even better with slightly less busy drums, just imo though!

Great effort people, some great tracks.

Track 1 – Could be a great tune with decent production. The stabs and stuff shit lovely, but the beats and bass and pretty shit. The shakers way too high in the mix, the kick and snare opposingly panned. With some good production this tune could be big.

Track 2 – Lackign definition, sahme as there sounds like some nice sounds in there.

Track 3 – Sample choice is nice, is it Stevie Wonder (i know it will be once of those things in which i’ll kick myself when i find out) but i do think someone done a bootleg of said tunes a few years back. Maybe Redeyes.

Track 4 – Best So Far, beautiful vibe. Snare/click seems bit high in the mix. Good tune, nice little percussion swiutch

Track 5 - Not in that one bit. Boring and badsly produced, sorry.

Track 6 – Great Intro pads, awful vocal. Had to turn it off

Track 7 - amazing choice of sounds, i mena literally amazing. Let down by boring drums and bass. Let me remix as well please.

Track 8 - hate the salsa samples. What follows is not to my taste, but it’s well done.

Track 9 – Nicely produced (if a little rigid with the beats) Nice piano, but a bit repritive. It’s nice, but not really memorable.

10 – not summery particularly, ambient but distinctly lacking any midrange and therefore identity.

11 – njot really my bag, production on the beats is very weird and thin. Some nice synth work, if a bit generic.

12 – there is a certain beauty to this tune, slightly ruined by the awkward drum fills, which give the groove a far too skatty feel for me, which ruined by enjoyment of the tune. It could have been magic.

13 – loud beats, kick seems a bity detatched from it all. Intro became a bit of an ordeal due to length and lack of change. The whole track needs a much better arrangement. B line is lacking real character.

14 – Hahahahahahahahaha but actually its currently in third place

15 – This sounds a lot more professional than some of the other stuff on here, but vocals too loud compared to the music and way too cheesy and make me hate the track. You could use little chops of it and make it far less cheesy and more interesting imo. Probably sell well in Liverpool

16 - Needs a lot of work.

17 – nice intro, kinda nice, albeit reptitive drop.

18 – could be nice with a better balanced mix.

19 – i think this tune has been done a fair few times mate. nice tune,nicely produced and definelty listenable.

1. Dont like the stuttering horn stabs much tbh. is a pretty funky tune doh and has a pretty cool groove. Not feelin the summer vibez really tho 5/10

2. Minor Jazz progressionz = summer vibez.. Think the bass sound selection is wrong for this type of tune maybe? Although its better when the second bass comes in around 1:50 6/10

3. Sample is properly summery, great selection. Dont like the sidechain pumping on it though....spoils it a bit for me. It also overpowers the breaks a bit 6/10

4. Chillin......really like the instrumentation, not sure bout the beat....has a bit of a minimal vibe reckon this coulda been a contender with more of a rollin liquid vibe 7/10

5. Not really gettin the Summery vibes from this one.....sorry  4/10

6. lolz....push yer finger in 1/10

7. Bear Summer vibez an ting....drums could certainly have used some more variety as previously said but generally a pretty good effort http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVUF2tCKr_c....8/10

8. Summery Salsa bit is good......Drops outta nowhere n then loses all its summer vibes 6/10

9. Nice tune....dont like the reese but the drums / vocal / keys work pretty well....not hugely Summery but pretty good 7/10

10.Difficult one...personally I really like the tune......I just dont see how it captures the summer vibe....I mean I could definately picture myself listening to this on a beach at sunset but the mood is more chilled than Summer to me....great tune though.....320 if you're giving it out please

11.Smashy Summer vibes....nice tune...obvious pendusnare is a bit obvious but pretty cool 8/10

12.Musically this is probably the most interesting tune here.....Vibe is definately Summer, dodgy time sig spoils it a bit for me...but thats just personal pref....good effort 7/10

13.Bare oldskool vibes here...cool tune...doesnt do the summer thing for me 6/10

14.Should really win for the intro idea....cool production skills....Is lovely around 1:25 in the first breakdown when the guitars first hit....drums are the only real let down for me rest of teh tune is a contender for sure 8/10

15.Now.. these beats should have been on track 14 :D that woulda worked......Cheesier than Chester Cheese chewing a chunk ofmanchego....This has to be Drfita or Speccy?? Euphoric dancefloor vibes all over this...great stuff 8/10

16.Not doing it for me on any level  2/10

17.Not really feeling this from the point the bass first drops....dreamy keys and vocal on the right lines though and overall is a pretty cool tune as it progresses 6/10

18.Love the bass on this....well produced but not hugely summery imo 7/10

19.Great sample selection....although I got well n truely accused of Baity Sample Selection (BSS...its a BBQnBass induced condition) when I sampled this tune last year. Hits all the right criteria 7/10


Final decision time.............................

14 - 5 points
15 - 3 points
19 - 1 point

Some great tunes in this years comp.....rispek to all the entrants and shame on all a you flopz

Track six is raw fire. I refuse to vote for anything else due to the sheer henchness of track six.
All my available voting points go to it.

RE: [COMP] &gt;&gt;BBQ&BASS 2010: VOTE HERE!&lt;&lt; 2010/07/05 11:36:03 (permalink)
Righty, here we go…

Track 1
I quite like this! It's a funky little head-nodder. Overall it doesn't tick many summery boxes in my head, but I enjoyed listening to it all the same.

Track 2
The sample grabs you straight away on this. Nice Astrud Gilberto Fender Rhodes lickage. Beats are nice and wiggly - some great percussion going on. I think the drop lets it down, sadly. The bass is quite indistinct and doesn't really fit with the sample very well. Shame, as the twinkly pad things that come in later definitely have an uplifting feeling to them.

Track 3
Yes. Big horns, big vibes. Definitely got a warm, uplifting vibe about it. Needs something else other than the horns though, as I got quite bored about halfway through. If more musical elements could have been introduced to compliment that brass groove, it could have been amazing. Nice dubstep switch though!

Track 4
Good vibes on this. Definitely summery. As LSB said, the clicks are definitely too loud which makes the beat seem a little disjointed, but all the musical elements work really well together.

Track 5
The weird synthy thing that kicks the track off and the rim-shot break definitely gave this tune potential, but after that it became rather muddled. The bass didn't really work with the other elements and I thought the synth that came in at 1:40 was rather grating.

Track 6
OMG!11! You totally said rape in a tune and stuff!! This is sooo wacky!!

Track 7
Breakwater sample fits the bill perfectly. The beats and bass are rather plodding and uninspiring, but there's no doubt I could kick back and take in some rays alongside this tune.

Track 8
Erm, I'm not rather getting any summery vibes off this this whatsoever. Its a banger without question, but doesn't fit the brief at all.

Track 9
This track has potential, but needs a lot more to it than just that ascending keys riff. The vocal that come in later in the track works really well and with a few more musical elements complimenting those already there this could have been very nice indeed.

Track 10
This is lovely. A very different approach to all the other tunes but it works well. Laidback, mellow, it's fitting the bill for me. Plinky piano is great and all the stereo effects are very well executed. Good job.

Track 11
Once again this is a decent track that's been well put together, but I'm not getting crazy summery vibes off it. It's all subjective of course, but for me this is more of a late night dancefloor tune than anything I might enjoy whilst sipping a mint julep in a hammock.

Track 12
This on the other hand, most definitely is. Right from the word go it's got a wonderfully warm vibe about it. Its really dense and meticulously put together too. A lot of love has gone into making this track and it shows. Vocal plays off against the Rhodes perfectly. All the pads and whatnot are great. Top tune.

Track 13
This one's got an old school flavour to it which I like, but once it drops, again it's just a straight up dancefloor track with not many uplifting summery vibes going on. Nicely done, all the same...

Track 14
Okay for a start I want to congratulate whoever made this because a lot of work has clearly gone into it. It's summery in a middle-of-the-road, American FM radio kind of way. It's utter cheese of course and someone made a tune out of the same loop last year, but it's a job well done!

Track 15
Now I wonder who made this... Very slick and polished tune, utter cheddar once again, and it doesn't exactly scream summer to me, unlike this person's entry last year which was summer incarnate.

Track 16
Erm, right. Not much I can say about this tune, really. It's not summery, not well made and just not very good all round. Sorry!

Track 17
This is more like it. Back in summery territory. Guitar and vocals at the start create a great uplifting vibe. The drop doesn't really do it for me, though. It gets very monotonous quickly. A decent effort, though.

Track 18
Ooh yes. Great introduction, vocal fits the bill nicely. All the musical bits and bobs play off each other really well. Yep this is a summery tune without question.

Track 19
LOLZERS. Someone just had to sample 'Everybody…', didn't they. You just couldn't resist it. Well despite the über hackneyed sample that has been used in just about every BBQ comp since it's inception, this is a good track, and I guess it's not the Roy Ayers version so you are forgiven. Well done.

Overall, I think there are some decent tracks in here, but quite a few people clearly have a different idea of what summer is than me . So I reckon my top 3 is as follows…

5 points: Track 12
3 points: Track 10
1 point: Track 14

1 - From the start sounds quite harsh and not very summery. Nice horn stab though. I actually really like the bass and vibe of the tune but doesn't really convey the image of summer for me.

2 - Sounds instantly more summery from the off. Quite a long intro, and had quite a lot of potential until the disgusting bass kicked in. Doesn't quite hit the spot summer wise imo.

* 3 - Lovely sample, and I'm ashamed that I can't think where it's from. Ah yeah, this is more like it! Mix down is a bit poo and very squashed but the vibes are there. Will have to come back this at the end.

* 4 - Lovely rhodes on the intro on this one, nice low passed chilled thing too. Hope this drops well... nice vocal. Fuck yeah, love this. Clicks are very loud but I'll let you off . Lovely stuff.

5 - Melody is a little depressing to be summer in the intro i think. Drop doesn't really do it for me either sorry.

6 - Lovely pad in the intro. Oh.

* 7 - Again some lovely intro vibes and samples. Yeah this one sounds promising. Beat doesn't really fit on the drop imo but I'm glad the vibes are still there. Could quite happily chill on the beach with this!

8 - Not really into the salsa stuff, could get cheesy quite quickly... Yeah this is really summery . Would probably go off though

9 - Nice piano but melody is a little obvious, nice vocal. Yeah this is ok, cymbal is a little annoying, would have ditched that and gone for a more laid back vibe on this one.

* 10 - Hmm, intro sounds very nice indeed. Not your conventional summer but definitely laid-back. Which kinda fits the bill if u think about it! Will have to listen again later, really like it. Think the bass melody could have progressed a bit more though.

11 - Epic piano, already have an idea on how I'd like this to drop! Few clashing piano notes in the intro i think. Not really keen on the synth that comes in, bit in-your-face. I really like this actually, but isn't really making me reach for my lilo.

* 12 - Instant vibes, really well put together intro. Love the little bass licks. Ah really looking forward to this! Very nice vocal indeed. Yeah, liking this a lot. Bit too disjointed for me, finding it quite hard to follow but all the right noises are in there. Shame it's a bit too disjointed and hard to follow, sounds like a different time signature... might just be me though!

13 - FL user here? Recognise some of the sounds. Melodies are all over the place in the intro and clash quite a lot imo. Wicked bass sound on the drop but isn't summery at all for me.

* 14 - LOL at the intro, love it. Well done. Drums are a little clangy but the vibes are there. Think someone used this sample a few years back actually, fits the bill perfectly though. Cheesy but defo summery. Fingers crossed for the drop... yeah not bad, this would have sounded wicked with really rolling drums and a nice subtle amen on top imo.

15 - Nice intro melodies, drums are quite full on. Sounds like a Drifticle. Haha it has to be. Lovely vocals, the drop is way too heavy for my idea of summer but good work all the same... Drifta

16 - This was not made for the competition

17 - Nice intro vibes, nice guitar sounds. Turned it straight off after the drop, fuck knows what some people's ideas of summer are.

* 18 - Very subtle intro, quiet but sounds promising. Yeah nice drop, mix needs work but chilled vibes agwarn.

19 - Nice intro samples, melody is a little unsummery but it sounds promising. Haha, only just clocked what the sample was, every year . Vibes are there but doesn't really make me want to reach for the Pimms. Nice though!



I’ve put a mark next to the following for consideration, so honourable mentions go to:

3
4
7
10
12
14
18

5 points: Track 4
3 points: Track 7
1 point: Track 14

Track 4 was the clear winner for me, fits the bill perfectly. Would love a copy of this for holiday! Pure by-the-pool-sweating-my-balls-off vibes [sm=bandito.gif]

On it....



T 1: Nice vibes but im not feeling summer to be honest. Drums get a bit repetitive as does the bass. Decent little tune but im not a big fan.

T 2: Intro is promising, drums drop along with the bass, sadly neither are feeling summer to me and the tune as a whole gets a little repetitive after a while. (Really like the cheeky drop right at the end though)

T 3: Intro is hot like sun, im toasty warm on it, this is promising. Nice little drop, feeling the drums, this is nice. Fuckin lol at the break down, brilliant. The main musical hook gets a big repetitive but on the whole this is nice. Going into my short list.

T 4: Intro is emanating mild glows of heets. Nice little musical twangs creeping in, drops coming…..sweet little break down first it seems, this is lovely so far, really feeling this, drops lush, drums are crisp as fuck, this is crisp as fuck, much props to the producer for this on, its lovely. Top of the pile so far, I do however have to say its not the sunniest of summer tunes but its still got the heat.

T 5: Nice start, I have that break, is nice, could do with being chopped up a bit, odd vocal sample, not feeling summer off this at all. Tune could be nice with a bit more work but its not saying summer in the slightest.

T 6: Nice pads, feeling a bit of heat from it. Then it drops. Not sure what the point was. It could have been good.

T 7: Beautiful start, lovely vibes, summer nights for sure, about to drop….smooth as fuck. Really nice vibes from this, lots of feeling in it. Nice and sparse but in a good way, this is on my short list without a doubt. Summer song to fall in love to.

T 8: Not getting much summer from this so far, not sure where its going….hhahah, DROP! HI ESKI *Waves. A banger but no summer vibes for me at all. Nice tune still.

T 9: Lovely start, nice keys, could do with warming up a bit, waiting to see where it goes….Hmmm, its quite nice but I don’t feel much summer from it. That growling synth line at the start is a bit grating. Nice bass after the drop and a few developments throughout the tune add more summer to it but not a great deal. On the verge of being a great tune but something is missing. Maybe a few more nights jelling everything together a bit tighter may have got it on the short list. Could have been great.

T 10: Beautiful start, this is right up my street. Its going on my short list immediately and we haven’t even got past the intro, cant see this going wrong. Its not screaming summer at me but I get a warmth from it, like a melancholy summers night reflecting on life. This is just beautiful. Just the kind of music I love. Lots of emotion in it. Lovely work. Big props the producer.

T 11: No summer vibes as of yet, the beats are very hard and stern, still not getting much heet, the drop just dropped, not a big fan of this if im honest. Seems a little cold to me, there are shades of Pendulum in the synth work, which is not a bad thing but also not conducive to a summer vibe. Production is not bad just not feeling the tune personally.

T 12: Nice intro, definite summer vibe coming off this. Intro is a bit disjointed, but still feeling warm. Some of the drums are a bit scatty and could have maybe had a little more time spent on them. Vocal is lovely. Bass is nice on the second drop.

T 13: Nice start but not hugely summery, nicely put together so far, waiting for the drop….Nice bass but the tune is lacking any summer vibes imo. Not bad.

T 14: Great start, love the radio idea. This is strong. This tune is crisp as fuck, but summery? I’m not sure. Not feeling much warmth to be honest. Lovely tune, big big props to the producer. On the short list.

T 15: Nice start, piano is lovely, not sure if its got a summer vibe though. Vocal dropped, nicely placed and sounds lovely, cheesy as fuck though. Still not feeling summer to be honest. Drop is lovely, nice bass, great production just not summery imo.

T 16: Nice little blips at the start not sure about the drums just yet, everything is a little quiet at the moment….nice little bass, some off the notes sound off though, not getting much summer off this one. Could be nice with a little more work put into it but at the moment its sounding a bit rushed. No summer here imo. Love the sub b2b bleeps at about 1:26, this could be a nice little jungle banger with a bit more effort.

T 17: Right in with a nice vocal, lovely start, definite warmness coming off this one, not sure where its going….nice synth line rolling in…..drop….hmmm not sure if that bass works, it’s a bit harsh imo. Also maybe a little loud? Could be a nice tune but im not feeling much summer with that bass, the rest of the tune is giving the right vibes but I feel the bass is letting down the warmth. Much prefer the switch up at 2:32 but its still not massively warm.

T 18: Intro is creeping in….sounds sweet, warmness is warm so far….nice little vocal lick, yeah man I’m feeling this, deep vibes. Something isn’t fitting in as well as it could but I cant put my finger on what it is, no matter. I like this, nice tune. Props to the producer. On the short list.

T 19: Yoooou big baity sample baiter you. You have used it wisely though so it can be forgiven. This is sounding nice so far, waiting for the drop….Nice, it’s a cool tune but in reality the main thing that is summery about it is the vocal sample. I do however like the tune. Nice work.


Right, short list with summer ratings….


Track 3: Summer rating - 8/10

Track 4: Summer rating - 7/10

Track 7: Summer rating - 9/10

Track 10: Summer rating - 6/10

Track 14: Summer rating - 6/10

Track 18: Summer rating - 6/10


Which means my points have to go like this....


5 Points: Track 7

3 Points: Track 3

1 Point: Track 4



Although it was not the most summery tune of the competition (and we are voting on summer vibes so I couldn’t put it top) track 10 is by far my favourite tune in the comp. Huge props to the creator. Beautiful work.

Big props to everyone that entered this year. Some lovely tunes. Really enjoyed listening to them all.

5 Points - Track 7 - Feeling this one big time, Laid back, as it should be, will need a 320 of this me thinks, despite my lack of anything worthwhile, such as mixing skills, or a label.

3 Points - Track 18 - Just getting the nice summer night vibes from it, really dig the little guitar stabs used and that bass is rather nice. Love the vocal (HOW DO PEOPLE FIND STUFF LIKE THIS?)

1 Point - Track 4 - Really like this, good amount of depth and cant really think of much else to say about it.

Sorry I couldn't do proper in depth reviews like most of you lot, nice tracks, found it tough to pick what ones to vote for.

Are the full tracks loaded, or are they just clips? I ask because tracks like track 5 only plays to about 38 seconds or so.

Regardless, absolutely IN LOVE with track number 4. Who ever did this, I can I have a 320 of it pleeeeezzzzzzzzzzz!!! Can definitely see this on repeat on my ipod.


Anyhoo, on to review the rest.

imo there should be a big zip file uploaded when the results are posted (when is that btw) with all of the tracks in it.

then we all get to enjoy what we've done.



yes.
