01. The Both of Us (Intro)
The idea behind this is two souls drowning from external influences of the world. Starts the tape off nicely
02. When we used to fool around
Here I tried to capture the feel I had, in a way lighter angle, otherwise this joint was destined to be depressing. Got comments on the drums, people asking where they come from…It’s all from drumbreaks, specially treated by yours truly!. None groundbreaking though.
03. A day for a minute (A.kInGs Tribute)
This is based on a sample my brother @Ardkings used for our previous tape. I had the sample chopped up on recycle, never used it until now. Kinda surprised how well it worked using Caustic 2. Accidentally this might be my 1st beat on Caustic 2.
04. Still like the sweet her
It’s heartbreaking seeing someone in your life change right in front of you, then they start drifting away…I always liked the sweet her (Got more beats and scripts with the same title).
05. 1926 Circus
Here I wanted To have fun, Flipped the sample, got the drums from a pack I made specially for this tape (I’m lying), added other tiny things, sequenced It and exported it all under an 1 hour….it’s that DIRT!
06. Both of Us can’t be gone (Outro)
Death comes in many forms, no really knows why….
While this took longer then expected, a friend wanted to know what’s up with the track names and such, so This basically the breakdown of each beat, I might still document the technical side if there’s interest…hope this makes the tape clearer and you can get where I was going with it. Next might be on the way, leftovers from the session. 90s hip hop heads I’m still prepping!!!
