You have the look. You have the charisma. You can rap like a powerhouse, but what about your beat? For you to become a powerhouse in the business, you have to select the right hip hop tracks, the correct rap beats. Without the crucial backing instrumental tracks, your music and your career as a performer will suffer.
The first factor that affects the price of the instrumental beat is the complexity. Some beats are created with simple tones while others use different kind of tones so as to increase the beat’s texture. If the beat maker took more time in creating their beat, then the price is usually set higher. It is that way for good reason. After all, complex instrumental beats usually sound better.
Some people prefer self learning rather than attending classes. So instead of going for expensive classes, why not be one of the smarter, self-taught people? Do not think that doing it through self learning will make you less capable of creating good retro lounge music as compared to those who are taking lessons with a music teacher in a music class.
Again, this sounds like an obvious concept, but unfortunately it’s often neglected. If you’re sending an email or letter to someone in an attempt to get them to listen to your music, treat it similar to how you would if you were sending someone a resume to get a job. Just because you’re a musician, doesn’t mean it’s okay for you to be unprofessional. Unprofessional or sloppy presentations won’t make you a cool musician in the eyes of those who will potentially listen to your music. It’ll simply make you appear unprofessional or sloppy, which will give your music a lesser chance of getting heard.
Make sure any sites you are downloading retro lounge music from contain adware, virus and spyware protection. Any reputable site will offer all three. Remember that downloading things from the Internet can be dangerous, compromising your privacy and your expensive computer. To keep yourself safe, never download anything if these three things are not present.
Then there is the obvious influence that music has on the way you feel. I do not know about you, but I could not survive a single day without music. You could say that I am a music junkie. Music plays with our emotions (in a good way). It makes us more human. It brings us laughter, joy, and sometimes it brings us tears. Music reflects our emotions, if you are angry you listen to heavy music like heavy metal for instance, and if you are feeling down, you listen to the blues for example.
One of the things I miss are good stations that are devoted to the true definition of the category or style. During the 90s there was a great Classic Rock station in L.A. They played all the standard songs, plus the great album cuts from the artists. As a music category progresses in definition, there’s less time to play those gems. This results in over repetition of the same couple of songs per artist and frankly, I’m getting tired of them. And while I’m getting tired of those songs, I’m forgetting some great music that used to be played on the radio. If this progressive redefining of music continues, could the day come when an oldies station doesn’t play anything from the 1960s? Could we begin losing great music from our history?
