This track is my instrumental dance remix of an 80s funk classic!

Well... that's a wrap for the Piece of Cake mixtape. Next Tuesday I'll post up the entire thing for download. After that? Well... uhhh to be honest, I'm running low on mixtape material and I haven't been doing a lot of new instrumentals lately. So I'll just have to wait and see what happens!!!

Nik Furious: Piece of Cake: Try This

Ultra-classic Furious comin' atcha!!! This is actually proto-Furious, in that I made this song before I was creating digital instrumentals on a regular basis.

I would call this a 100% Nik Furious original save for one fact -- I didn't play the drums! I had an assignment in one of my audio production classes, and Try This is the result of that. The drums are sampled from a gospel song I mixed for said assignment, and then I added my own keyboards on top.

A short, punchy beat with crisp drums and crunchy guitars. I edited my loops around the original song's bassline, cause that's just how I get down.

If ya dig this, listen to my 100% original album, Brilliant Shower, for free.

Nik Furious: Piece of Cake: Slip It In

I'm sure DJs and producers out there can relate to this -- you hear a chord progression or a melody in a song and it ALMOST sounds perfect to you, and you just can't resist the opportunity to try and take it to that place where you want it to be.

Well that's what this beat was for me. I wanted to take the sample just slightly off of its original course and tweak it until I thought the progression was smooth and sleek. Did it work? You be the judge.
