Hi all.
Here’s my latest song,it’s a quirky hip hop one with the basic Hiphop RT with me playing the excellent Arturia B3 organ and the IKM SampleTank 3 for the saxes.

Hi Riccledy
I liked it... it's like how you sing to yourself
and then some solo... that refreshes the song.
Soft, not intrusive... calming... I enjoyed it

Hi Rick,

Somehow I missed this. Glad the LazyPianoMan brought it up.

I was gonna say, "Something a little different from you". But, you compose in so many different genres, I've come to expect almost anything from you - mostly nice surprises!

Interesting - in a good way. Lots of rhythm yet soft. your voice is perfect for this. pretty danged cool!

I think the general consensus is the same! Your voice really does suit this particular style of song. That organ sound is also pretty fantastic. The softness of the song makes it so that it's not super jarring, and I think you made some good choices here.

What a relaxing song.

Thanks for sharing.
