If you don't like Funk music, please skip this post. smile

I love that the management of this fine company got artists like Mark Lettieri, Sput Searight, Keita Ogawa and many others included in the 2019 version of BiaB. I really like some of the new funky styles. This is a tribute to those styles (especially the percussion):

February Moon

Hi Will,

I'm a fan of funk music, and you did a nice job of putting this together. Mix sounds good too.

Love the drums and bass, which style/realtracks did you use?

Will,

Another interesting, enjoyable piece.

Nicely put together. Well mixed - everything is at a good level. The drums and bass both "pop". The guitar parts are dropped in nicely.

Enjoyed.

Hi Will,

Super cool!

We don't hear enough of the excellent funk RTs getting used, so many thanks for that.

Very polished arrangement and mix. Nicely done.

Thank you!
Oh, that is embarrassing... I don't know why I forgot to write the RT's I am using. Here they are (remember this is very minimal funk):

Bass: RT3111
Drums: ModernFunk16thsSput (in different versions)
Guitar: RT3250

Thank you very much for listening! If you read this... do you mind explaining to me what "pop" means in this context? I honestly don't know... Please remember I am a stupid European... smile

I always appreciate your comments, so thank you!

I'll never turn down a good funk tune! Love the groove, and love the progressions too. That bassline is infectious as well. I can't help but imagine how good this would sound in a live setting. It'd definitely do well with a dancefloor.

Really well done - thanks for sharing smile

"Pop" refers to clarity and presence. In your song the bass and the drums sit very well in the mix and make their presence known. But not too much. Pop is that "right" spot and you hit.

And for us you hit ALL the right spots.

This is a well done and fun production and we enjoyed it!

J&B
