I love reggae music, so wanted to try to produce a track in that style. It's not in the style of Bob Marley, but still I tried to capture the laid back Jamaican living style (with a modern twist to the sounds). Build it layer by layer... I think it sounds quite good on headphones or if you have good speakers.

Let me know what you experts think!

I was impressed by this mesmerizing composition when I listened to it yesterday or the day before when it popped up on my Watchlist...
However I can't remember if I commented...
Good job!

Some very cool sounds. I do like the way you layered it. The song took on different shapes and feel as the song progressed. Very cool

I'm not an expert, but I will let you know what I think. I like the way you have woven all the tracks into an aurally appealing composition. Nice!

Will,
Soundcloud popped up a lovely message to say they couldn't play the track now & for me to try again later. I will.


Cheers

Hi rayc, It sometimes happens when they update their software. Very seldom though. But thank you for trying!

I appreciate that you took time to listen to this, Belladonna. Yes, it is a bit different from "normal" reggae... I guess that is just me.. I like to experiment with music.

Thanks again,
Will

Very relaxing track to listen to, interesting reggae with some dub and horns that remind me of tijuna brass bands.

Nice work, Will! Love the reggae inspired vibes on this one. It's really modern sounding, and definitely a unique piece. A fine example of Band-in-a-Box's diverse capabilities. It got my toe tapping in no time.

Thanks for sharing smile

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Hi Will,

I'm always amazed at your versatility - your a real daredevil when it comes to reaching new musical shores.

I have to admit that I'm no big Reggae fan, but this is another great thing you're coming up with - so different yet so familiar. Great economic usage of the instruments (which, I think, is far more difficult than pulling out all the stops).

Your posts always add a lot of yummy spice to the forum!

Kind regards,

Stefan

Great melody on top of a cool rhythm Will! Great blend of sounds here! Mesmerizing is the key word I think! Thanks, Torrey

Hi Kenny, Janne, Deryk, David, Stefan, Torrey and Joe,

So sorry for this rude way of answering all of your kind messages in one take, but I'm sick these days (nothing serious) - and I lack the energy to write a message for each of you (or do anything else for that matter).

Please know that I appreciate your kind comments a lot!

Will be back when I am fresh again!
