    I thought that I should share this, there's this guy named "Samiyam", he makes Hip-Hop beats out of old Nintendo games, I thought it was interesting.

    Ooof. That's almost good. Every single one of them is just off a beat slightly. There's no structure to what he's putting together. There's almost a beat, then he throws something else in place, and bam, it's all off.

    It's lacking the flow.

    Ok, listening to the last one you listed, and that one is ok... but there's not a lot to it.

    I'd throw it into the "meh" area of "good/bad."

    I find your response very interesting, in fact, it's a perfect interpretation. Thanks for the feedback.

    I would like to add that i like the direction he's going. I can hear it. With some work (a bit more structure) that shit will be hot. (i just need to be able to bounce my head to it [​IMG])

    This has nothing to do with Glitch-hop. This is 8-bit hip hop. He hasn't glitched anything. And with the "hip-hop" tag, it should have a solid head-bob beat.

    PS- i've done my fair share of glitch-tracking a few years back [​IMG] no need to "open my mind to it" [​IMG]

    I only listened to Fireball and it sounded like a 5-10 sec loop of the same tune with some "beat" tacked on to it, the tune itself reminded me of Ninja Gaiden (did I get that right ?).
