ARTIST: KILLA THROWED
TRACK: KILLA THROWED CHOPPED AND SCREWED
I hear this as a heavy sub bass driven ghetto tech – horrorcore slow pitched vocal killa swag kinda track. You cut and romp the lyrics in this.
You repeat the vocals, and use dramatic orchestra stabs at the end of your bars. You seem to like using those, though I haven’t heard the original ‘SWAG,’ I have heard GANSTA and you use stabs in there as well.
In terms of the instrument I think the vocal lead acts like a sawtooth synth itself, takes up the mid range that’s why the sub-bass layers lower end efficiently almost like a kick drum 808 style. You may have put the vocals through various filters, that allows it not to get boring while its repetition could even get little addictive.
Your track GANGSTA is dirty south I think this one too is done in the southern style. The bpm is slow but has enough going on within each bar.
Is this meant as part of a mix-tape? Would you suggest I listen to the original SWAG to truly appreciate how you affected it? Would you agree that on the main this is a bop-along vocal mix track the likes of a b-side to a single that hides behind or supports the main track?
Instruments: 808 sounds, re-use of vocals – bass efficient
Ideas: not trying to do too much other than use the vocal in with effects and different pitches
Mix down: Yeah, I think this was panned properly, enough going on at the left right, bottom and top sonically.
