Undo - Solid freaking beat… liked the use of the sounds for the flip too… really liked what I hear!

Null - Thought this was going for a DnB track… instead you almost went happy hardcore. I enjoyed what you did here, but not quite for me.

Keith - Low rider here… put your seat back in your car… left hand on the 12 and drive and head nod your way down the neighborhood… delicious.

Null Sweat- I wasn't expecting to hear anything like that. It wasn't my kind of thing but I loved that you did something so different.

Near Tao - I liked the beat and you have some nice cuts to go with it!

Keith's Lard - out of all the entries I'd want to listen to yours the most so I voted for you.

I wasn't feeling that sample, so I went left field with it. **** had me cracking up for a hour, then I couldn't take anymore.

Undosequence - Smooth with the piano. Real nice cuts. I like how you avoided the "Doors-sey" flavor, sampling the Doors.

NearTao - I like the stuttering piano chops, cuts are pretty nice too.

Keith - That's kinda dope, I thought I was listening to a Primus song for a sec.

Went with Undosequence

Hahaha it's a heavily used function on my mpc. I should actually assign it to a foot pedal. :)

Ahh. Unfortunately, I missed this one... hopefully, I'll make it next week.

I loved how everyone had such a different take. Undo and Neartao made really good use of scratching. Keith's was a slow descent into madness.. Null Sweat had that psychedelic energy.

All in all, I thought everyone's was cool. But, Undo's stood out to me. It was less of an exercise in "this is all of the crazy stuff I can do with this sample" and more just a simple head nodder. But, that's what I tend to prefer in beats, personally... and I thought his chops and drums stood out. Very well done. Kudos to all, but Undo gets it.

I wasn't directing the wording at you, I was just joking in general, not coming at you or anything. It was the first thing that came to my head if someone else is having problems with a sequence. Not @ you at all.

Absolutely zero stress, I totally didn't take it out of context or the wrong way at all.
Thanks man!

Thanks for the votes and positive feedback!

I'm really happy to be making beats and for people to enjoy them. Mpc/beats/production has never come natural, it took me like 5 years to work out how to make the worst sounding beats on my old 2000xl, 15 years later and I'm finally starting to figure things out.

Scratching and turntablist stuff is what I've always focused on, but hopefully these weekly battles will be good practice and help in the quest to make a folder of beats than I'm actually happy with :)

Definitely will help you man, seen so many people improve over the weeks since I've been doing these and without sounding all mushy it brings a little joy watching and hearing you all progress. It's these progressions that make us continue to run these battles :smoker:
