Welcome to my music page, where you'll find tracks I produce. From hip hop/rap to funk and everything in between, from fully finished, mixed and mastered projects to half formed ideas, here's everything I got for you to listen to. Enjoy.
Songs I made A long Time Ago
Starting with the past! When I first realized I liked making music, I was thrilled. I wanted to go out and make these great sounding songs. And I thought I could do it, to. I was a drummer, a bassist, a guitarist, and a vocalist. I thought I had it made. But there was only one problem. I couldn't have played and sang with all of those instruments at the same time. Believe me, I tried. But it just didn't work. So, I eventually got my hands on a Yamaha YPG235 digital keyboard, which allowed me to record up to six midi tracks. That got me started with making music, and below you'll find a download of some of the first songs I ever created. Not good by any means, but here they are.Download
I purchased Logic Pro, Apple's digital audio workstation. It has served me well and I make all kinds of stuff with it. You can look below, or also on My Youtube for tracks I may not have posted here yet.
This is an alternativve, old school kind of hip hop track. It kind of reminds me of heading home on the interstate on a rainy evening around 6:00. Just something about the rough drums, the sawing strings, and the electric pianos kind of gives me that vibe. Take a listen but beware, this is only a half formulated idea right now.
This is another hip hop kind of track, whose wavey electric pianos and bassline remind me of the morning time just after you wake up around 10:00. It's a fully finished track so check it out!
This track is crazy. It transitions from pounding trap to contemplative hip hop and back again, all while going through at least 4 key changes. The central melody remains the same throughout, yet the instruments around it dictate the overall key. Starting in c#, then to A, to F#, to D, then finally to G#, it's quite a listen. Check it out
This is kind of a DJ Mustard, west coast trap beat that I made.
This beat is more uptempo, and much darker. I didn't originally even create it as an instrumental, I actually designed it to compliment Manny Fresh and Chris Brown's "Must Be" but I decided that when I removed their vocals, it sounded pretty good on its own. Here it is.
This is my first ever country song. Well, the first one I've ever fully made into a song, that is. It's a pretty rough draft, and needs all kind of work. So many things need to be cleaned up, but you can check it out right here. I was actually enspired by a song I heard in the Dominican Republic, which actually sounded more Mexican than anything.
This is a hazy, chill type trap instrumental. It was one of the first good beats I ever made, back before I really got the hang of everything.
This is more of a classic trap beat, set at around 130 beats per minute. It flows nice and is simplistic, so anybody could spit on it.
This is more of a darker, fast paced track.
This is a dark, pounding trap instrumental.
This track isn't finished, it's an idea I've had and in fact there has been production past what you'll hear below. But I created it without mixing it properly so that will have to wait. It's sort of an alternative rock instrumental that I started, no idea where it will go though.
I couldn't really even classify this as funk. Thus, I called it indie funk. I was playing around with an organ preset early in the morning one day and happened to lay down a pretty good sounding opening chord structure. I recorded it, elaborated on it, then finished it up and here it is.
This was originally a song dedicated to the absolutely wonderful ranch flavored tuna pouches available wherever tuna is sold, but the lyrics just never happened and the track itself was never finished. It has an island feel with somewhat of a new jazz/soft rock thing going with it and it's not half bad.
This is a pretty fun country song I'm working on. I called it Kentucky Twang after I used a guitar which I had a good friend of mine modify, put all new pickups in and totally replace all the stock electric components. Well, it sounds a whole lot better now but the biggest difference is that classic country twang I can get out of it now. That sound really makes this track.
This is a classic 90s kind of hip hop beat, sort of old school. I actually made this one in about 30 minutes on the day Apple released Logic Pro 10.5, which was a huge update. I was playing around with some of the new electronic kits they had and put this together.
Yet another dark, melodic trap beat
This here is actually more of an R&B kind of a track. It's slow and flowing, just sort of open and simple. There's all kinds of room for somebody to rap over it, it's just so melodic. I actually freestyled on this one, and you can check that out too.
Now here's my freestyle. I just kinda spit it out one day, and everything you hear came straight off the dome. It took me three or four takes to correct some parts where I messed up totally, but I never wrote a thing, just improvised each time.
This track is one which I was inspired to create after hearing some random snippet of another song playing while hanging out with a couple of friends. I don't even know what genre this is, but I got an idea and made it. Kind of an electronic synthesized track, but it's pretty heavy and has some acoustic elements in there too.
This is an acoustic guitar piece I wrote. It's gentle, and kind of has a thoughtful melody I'm picking out. The chord structure and melody remind me of sitting outside on the porch in the morning watching the sun come up, feeling it on my face, feeling a cool breeze blow on my arms, and hearing birds singing. You'll hear those birds here, because I put a background of the nature sounds we get out at our place behind the guitar. And no, I didn't loop that component, birds really just repeat themselves that much. Please excuse the mistakes, but there's no take two when you're just pickin for fun.
If I had to pick, this would be in like, the top 5 beats I've ever produced. It's dark, flows great, and is arranged almost perfectly.
This is just a project idea I had and then didn't do anything with for some time, so I went ahead and put it here since it didn't look like there would be further development anytime soon. It's somewhat of a DJ Mustard type beat, sort of that west coast trap thing, and I called it "Realist," for some reason. It sounds like a song with that title, or at least a song that would have that word in it.
I can only describe this beat as bumpin. It's really unique, I must say, as it has kind of a different feel to it than my other beats. If you want, you can actually listen to a podcast I had to make for a college class where I broke this track down, and you can find that
This is a smooth, jazzy swing kind of an instrumental. It's composed of a main guitar chord structure, with the usual bass and drums behind it, but I added an organ in with the other rhythm instruments. The melody is performed in parts by a piano, vibes, and a trumpet section. As for the name, it's the name of a boat I saw while in the Bahamas a long time ago and which stuck with me as the name of a late night jazz show, "playing music to put you to sleep here on Silver Moon Radio."
This beat is kind of a soulful organ type instrumental, which I actually started on... back in 2019. I'm finally finishing and posting it somewhere here in 2022. It's full of glistening melodies, rotary organs, and a great vocal synth pad that all sound great together.
I made this beat some time ago, and as with most of my stuff, it's not yet finished. But I like the way it sounds, so I'll post what I have so far. More of an uptempo trap beat, pretty solid.
This is a hip hop beat that kind of reminds me of that old school summertime feel you'd get from the 90s. I like these chords. This one is also pretty unfinished
The Whole Nine Yards
This beat should really be called the whole 12 notes, as that is exactly what it is. It's an instrumental chord and melody structure that loops over and over, yet each time it repeats, it changes key completely. It's very interesting, take a listen.
Another idea that hasn't seen progress in a while. Enjoy!
This is an idea I've just about given up on. It's a trap kind of beat, but it's orchestral in a way and pretty dark sounding.
