Topics I've Started

New track "City Lights" + Updates

29 March 2014 - 08:52 AM

Hey, it's been a while but I'm back. I finally finished my first actual track. It's titled "City Lights" and is a statement toward society and our dependence on technology and lack of humanity.

I performed the track on Thursday and got invited to do another show on May 3rd. Life is good. I'm going to keep working hard and keep improving.

I'd really appreciate your thoughts on it.

Fear Your Dreams - Hell on Earth Topical

06 December 2013 - 05:48 PM

Hey, I'm back with another track - it's very short since I only had two hours to write record and mix but here it is. Let me know what you think!

The topic I was given was "Hell on Earth" - I chose to interpret that creatively and use it as a chance to make a statement about the horrid state of society.

The guy I was facing ducked the battle but it's finished already so I figured I'd let you guys check it out.

Bare's Music Thread

11 July 2013 - 08:34 PM

So rather than continually flooding the forum with new threads I'm just going to use one thread to get opinions from you guys on my work.

If you weren't aware (somehow) that I've been hard at work trying to learn to rap better and freestyle as well, well, I have been. I'd call it a hobby but at this point it's more of a love - I never had the ability to play an instrument or anything growing up.

I started freestyling in November, about 8 months ago - Since then I've improved tremendously because I literally have been working daily to improve.

Anyway, since this is a new thread I suppose I should walk you through a timeline of how bad I used to be.

This first video I uploaded in 2006, I was a Moderator on a Hacking/Warez forum called KwickFix and they had a rap battle thread, I decided to post a troll verse and even went as far as recording it on my webcam.

Be warned, I only posted this video to show you just how bad I used to be.



Then, last year, I decided to try again and work on a League of Legends Parody for the Songs of the Summoned contest



I tried my heart out to make something decent and ultimately I fell short of the mark.

So fast forward a year to November, my friends Craig and Dennis convinced me to join their "cypher" - I didn't even know what a cypher was at that time. They just spit bars back and forth and I stood like a deer in the headlights. It took me TWO FULL WEEKS to say a SINGLE WORD.

I tried doing it in my car and slowly got better although my flow was absolutely awful.

I decided to make an investment and bought a Microphone under the rationale that I gamed a lot anyway so why not spruce up my voice quality?

Well, we spent the next two weeks pretty much doing nothing but recording and boy was it fun. I really did fall in love with the feeling of creating something of my own.

Day one baby, the GoPro and weed on the table, Audacity ready to go and a brand new Microphone to pour your heart and soul into.

Well, fast forward to today - I've improved significantly and I've been hard at work trying to keep on improving. I've been getting more and more Soundcloud views and have gained a few Subscribers but I won't stop improving my craft, I want to revive rap music and legitimize the genre as an art form rather than just something "those people" listen to.

I'm not an idiot, I have an immense (sometimes frustratingly so, I sometimes have to dumb down my wording so that people will understand everything I want to say) vocabulary and I want to put it to use.

Anyway, here are some of my recent tracks grouped into categories:

and I also decided to start fiddling around with FL Studio 10 yesterday, I've made 5 sound clips so far while I've been learning the program (in the order that I made them):

I'd really appreciate input on any and all of these, I know that a lot of you don't respect rap but as a fellow longtime member of this community perhaps you'll respect me enough to give something a listen. :)
