years end

By Jason Nijjer on December 27, 2020 9:20 pm

Wow, can't believe it's the end of the year, definitely one of the craziest years of my life, I'm sure the same for many of you.  Congrats to everyone that made the 52, certainly almost gave up a few times.  I will miss listening to and catching up with many of you during the year, always get inspired and amazed by all the creativity found on this site. 

One of my goals was to improve on my drums this year, I do feel that I have gained a greater grasp of sequencing and mixing the drums in ableton.  Did not achieve my goal of distancing myself from the laptop and work more on hardware, poor gear mostly sat around collecting dust. 

Will miss the rush of when pieces of the music come together just right, another part of me is also relieved that I got no deadlines for next week, I just want to sit back and listen to music for awhile, have a stack of 60-70 records that still haven't made it to the turntable.  Peace and love to all the weeklybeats contributors, you guys/gals are awesome, I hope there will be a weeklybeats 2022, stay healthy and safe, see you next time!

Oh wow that bass sound is just so nice, it resonates in the depth of the track. The tight kick on top of it is just perfect. You shared so many cool tracks this year! Looking forward to more in 2022! smile

Nice oldschool hiphop vibe in here. I want to wish you health and good luck for the new year.

Another killer track! Really cool sounds in intro. Then the beat is huge. Perfect sample too. I really dig your beats and production. Bringing some good energy HUGE drums and bass, great chops and style every week. I'd say you got the drum production down for sure! I'm still trying to find that balance of hardware and software too. I wanna get away from the laptop, but love what can be done with it! A crazy year no doubt, but some good music here on WB! Thanks for the beats, and the supportive comments all year, been great getting to know you here. Until we meet again!

I've always enjoyed listening to your beats.  Your drums always have this extra oomph to them that gets me grooving along.  I hear ya on missing certain aspects of the WB year but def looking forward to some downtime to explore new music and maybe polish some old tracks into an album.  For now this month is reserved for some couch listenin smile    Btw the bass in this sounds great along with those 2020 scratches.  I hope you have a happy new year!

At least you stuck around to the end and your drums are tight. Maybe in the off year you'll have more time for the gear.
Happy New Year.
