Any feedback on this Trip Hop track?

Post by nojanath » Thu Aug 08, 2019 2:04 pm

Hi all,

I just rejoined Taxi after a very long break and I thought I would give the two Trip Hop listings a go as my first submittal. I haven't made much music over the last few years so I would value ANY feedback you have. I'm still shaking the rust off and feel like I'm starting over with writing.

Thanks a ton!

JT

PS. 2 listings for Trip Hop? What is this...the 90s? :D


TRIP-HOP INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a High-End Music Library that’s currently working with a Major Record Label with Worldwide Distribution! Please listen to the following references they gave us to get a feel for the style and vibe they need:

Trip-Hop Song References
“Dreaming” by Zero 7
“Teardrop” by Massive Attack
“Slowly” by Waldeck

Although the references have vocals, they seek Instrumentals Only for this pitch.

Please send well-produced Trip-Hop Instrumentals that have innovative instrumentation, creative programming, and compelling arrangements. Your production/instrumentation should be "chilled out, trippy," and in the general ballpark of the references.

NOTE: The bar will be HIGH for this request, so please submit your very best! They need Instrumentals that sound more like they belong on a record and less like what might be found in some lower-end Production Music Libraries.
TRIP-HOP INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a very successful Christian Production Company that’s working on multiple Independent Films! This company has just started requesting music from TAXI's members, so this is a great opportunity to get on this person's radar for these films and future projects as well.

Please listen to the following references to get an idea of what could work for this pitch:

“Teardrop” by Massive Attack
"Heaven's Gonna Burn Your Eyes" by Thievery Corporation
"Sour Times" by Portishead
"Overcome" by Tricky

Although the references have vocals, this request is for Instrumentals only.

Please submit full-length Trip-Hop Instrumentals (not Cues) that use atmospheric sounds and slowed Hip-Hop beats to create a laid back mood and vibe. Your submissions should have creative instrumentation and engaging rhythms from beginning to end.

Nice track nojanath! Love the bubbley risers and use of delay (I think it's delay). I didn't check out the reference tracks for this one, but mix and production of this track is top notch. I'm on my 3rd play.

Awesome man!

Thanks so much for the responses guys. I really appreciate it. I can use the confidence boost since this is my first finished track in a looong time.
