Superior Tech

Nik Furious: Superior Tech: Showdown

Saturday, August 21st, 2010

I love this beat. The whistle, the build, the mix of diverse sounds.

In terms of musical memory recall, I'll always remember when I made it because the drums on this track were heavily inspired by Big Boi's "I Like the Way (You Move)."

The hardest part about this song was coming up with a name. Otherwise, it came together pretty easily.

I'd had the drum loop in my files for a while and never used it. But I suddenly felt the muse one Saturday, I wrote a bassline, and the rest just fell into place.

Haunting. Rhythmically intricate. Richly Melodic.

Those are words that describe other songs. However, this one is pretty good too.

Don't forget to buy my album, Brilliant Shower. It's 100% originally awesome. (And this song isn't on it!)

Nik Furious: Superior Tech: Lucas

This beat was made in the thick of my nonstop production days (a.k.a. when I lived in Brooklyn and didn't have a job). It's a solid, if not unremarkable, ditty. Yes, I said ditty. The drums arrangement/build up is very Just Blaze inspired, as I was trying to emulate the energy of his tracks at this time.

Now go check out my instrumental album, Brilliant Shower. It's 100% originally awesome.

Nik Furious: Superior Tech: Lightning Storm

Saturday, May 29th, 2010

I made this beat off a recommendation from my friend Dan. And I think it turned out great. I normally hate strings but I think they work well on this track. BUM-BUM-BUM... BUM!!! That's what the strings sound like.

Sometimes when I make beats, I mentally link them to certain artists. To me, Lightning Storm sounds like something Ciara would use, especially after she put out "Oh." Anyway, check out my album, Brilliant Shower. It's 100% original and sexy.
