Get Away

August 8, 2011 11:20 PM

Today marks the release of a long anticipated hip hop collaboration. I refer, of course, to Watch the Throne. Undaunted, dapperkoala and I decided to release our collaboration today too. (A little NSFW)

This started with dapperkoala's music talk post seeking collaborators. I made this beat, and that's me on the first verse, dapperkoala as HB on the second verse, and me again on the last verse, and then dapperkoala closes it out. Thanks for listening.

Also, I wanna say that dapperkoala is super talented and totally cool to work with. He has tons of music on his website that you guys should all check out.

We'll be giving Kanye and Jay-Z a run for their money very soon haha. It was amazing working on this with chrchr! Producers beware, his beats are golden!

Heya lads, love the piano chord sequence : I love that pull on the a 3rd chord (whatever it is) , realy jazz heavy and a lovely sound, kinda makes your eye brows crumple up in expectation to resolve.

Chrchr: in the "fits cinderella" line right at the start, you have a lovely stop/start kind of staccato thing (FITs cinaRELLa) and you sound really involved in the song, nice beat. "Im countin down the days, im countin down the days [rpt]" You have an awesome sound in as well

dapper: "I really hate the hood", "but for Now...." "I'm countindown the days..." "I wanna get away" all have a lovely tone-changing lilt at the end, I think when you try and vary your tone in your rapping, it gives a lovely flow, I prefer this to sticking to the same tone. Again: "I want to get away" you have a good grasp on the notes, use them to the best man!

Words were cool, all round, I don't really listen to words much, mostly how the melody goes, and it sounded cool :)

Good work you two, its great to see people having fun as well - good job

Thanks for your comments Cogentesque! I'm really glad you like the song. Yeah I love H.B.'s voice on this. I was totally blown away he when he sent me his parts. I agree that that little bit of harmony he adds in the chorus is really nice.

ahhh man I missed this the first time around! I like the whole vibe of this collabo and how you each painted a different scenario based on the title. Maybe there should be a MeFi Rap Mixtape because, you know, that would be siiick. haha! Nice job fellas!
