Exploring more political ideas. Anyone have ideas on how to implement Ideas in a song without it being so obvious?

The transition from the spoken part to the music works very well, anyhow!

Nice music, powerful speech. Thanks for sharing that

Music backing speech always makes the speech more profound; I really like how abstract the music is here. You can, of course, integrate rhythmic elements of the speech with the music.

Ahhh thats something that i wished i wouldve done. Like follow the rhythm of the speaker and create the flow from there. I want to explore more ideas without having backing speech but make it sound full of feeling. Imagine detroit and how they made techno is response to their enviorment. I want to do the same with neo-colonialism

Sweet track. Transition sounded fine to me. As Jim said, some bits of the vocal incorporated later could have worked well but what's there is good.

I think this does a great job. To answer your question though... one way to be a little less politically up-front would be sonically-- make the speech less up-front. Bury it deeper in the mix, make it harder to hear, more difficult to understand. If the listener has to work a little harder to get the political content, then the political content will seem less forced/fed. All that said, I don't think the political content here is forced or spoon-fed. I think you did a great job incorporating it.

I like how loud the voice is. What you could have done is shorten the vocal clip and put some of it sparsely in the middle.
like towards the end would be kind of nice.
