Not a Tango

By theGuen on October 30, 2016 9:09 pm

This week there are more samples again mixed up with some synth voices...
I've startet with a Tango after listening to a beautyfull Version of libertango from streetmuscian.
Than I've noticed that the tango itself was way to domiant. I couldn't drag it away from sounding like "Gotan Project"
wich is not what I wanted. So I decided to take only tiny pieces for the Rythm. All in all I had a good week and finished this really quick.

As always, tips and suggestions are welcome! I try to improve.

Have a nice week!

There is still that hot tango feeling, that makes this track so special. I never heard a track with those kind of styles mixed up together, that is why I am positively surprised. The beat is cool as always, whish I could understand how you are doing this. Have a nice week.

Very cool and unusual rhythm.  Vocal samples are a nice touch as well.

Nice work mixing the styles, I like how you used the vocal samples and the different sounds that keep coming in and out of the mix in the background

I really like this--the drum patterns have a lot of not-a-tango character.  Well done!

A touch of tango, while not being tango. Very effective, and a very catchy beat. Well done!
