A stubborn refusal to submit anything less than a kitchen-sink overproduction is a hallmark of mine.
If you comment on my stuff, I will listen to yours, and that's a promise.
This is my 12th FAWM. I am not sure what I'll be doing.
I host a podcast (see website link) where the concept is that every episode is a review of the previous episode.
Thanks so much for connecting me to Ayden, Dan! The vocals are on their way to him now (stupid slow internet), and I'm totally looking forward to the final product! ❤️
Ashen Sands is a popular map in SCII. Welp, my dork is showing.
Aha, that IS subtle! I googled it and Dungeons and Dragons came up, ha. What did you think of his new album? I thought I really liked it at first, but had no urge to go back and listen after 3 or 4 days which is never a good sign...
I'm all for going the extra mile on production! Welcome back!
Thanks loads, Dan. Your comment means a lot. 😀
(Karl here hijacking Dan's account).
Thanks for the feedback, on "Sunshine". I normally write nonsense lyrics, but I'm currently pretty unwell, this is tries to reflect that whilst refusing to be negative; however some lines sneak in because they sound good.
Cool thanks! I've gravitated towards more guitar stuff in recent years, which doesn't lend itself so well to processing. THis one, well first takes... yeah...
Thanks for your comment on my song, just had a go on yours.
Yes, yes I will. Looking forward to getting jealous of your arrangements.
Oh my goodness, thanks! They wouldn't exist if it weren't for FAWM. 😀 It's amazing that this is your 12th year. I strive to keep February reserved for music-writing for that long! You're an inspiration. Cheers to FAWM 2017!
I'm not sure why, but the description of your podcast caught me by surprise and made me laugh out loud. I always enjoy your fawming
I think the two albums mentioned are just too full on pop production for me which grates a little with hip-hop. Don't get me wrong there's some ace songs on both albums! Love Real Friends and No More Parties in LA especially; but they're probably the rawest sounding things on the album
Nah, far too patchy for me. I'm a bit of an unorthodox Kanye fan in that I think Yeezus is far and away the best thing he's done, and MBTDF and his latest are some of his weakest work
mothafuckin breadcrumbs as yisssss
Don't mind me I just came over cos I heard about the kitchen-sink overproduction... that's kinda my jam too
Hey man.. in this year?
