Bloggin 4 Beats: The Learning Curve

JLBarrow • November 24, 2009 • No Comments


As some of you may or may not know I post remixes that I do at home from time to time in this blog section of Nodfactor. I’ve been doing beats and remixes for about two years now using nothing but good FL Studio and Adobe Audition. I usually test them out on my friends for reaction before I post, but most times I just throw them out there. I think I’ve gotten better but I’ve hit a bit of a slump lately because to be honest, I care more. That’s right, not care less, I care MORE. I’ve become so critical of everything I do that I don’t want anybody to hear ANYTHING.

So I decided to go back and revisit some of my older pieces for inspiration/ courage.  I was actually happy as hell to find that I had enough remixes to make a one-hour mix. WTF? The mixes are riddled with technical flubs and some of them are off beat as hell (“World Is Yours” remix) while some fell right in the pocket (“Ms. Fat Booty” remix). But in every case I liked how they FELT, which is what it’s about at the end of the day, right?

There’s everything in here from Jay-Z’s “Roc Boys” to Royce’s “Boom.” Take a listen or download it [here ]
