Lost Cause by PARAGⴲN CAUSE

Not really my cup of tea in terms of style, but I really liked the 80s vibe, kinda goth, right? Congrats on a really well produced track.

Good timing! Hope this helps turn things around. If it doesn't, at the very least is a good record of the times we are living in.

RED (Radio Mix) by Emii

Bruno Natal

Sounds good! A bit too generic in terms of what's out there, but well produced, nonetheless. Seems like it's begging for a tropical house remix!

Pretty cool, laid back production! I like these kind of sounds. I shared it through my Soundcloud account.

Really cool project! There's a Brazilian artist by the name of Lucas Santtana who went on to make a whole album simply using the acoustic guitar,  taking it as far as he could and in a couple of tracks he went into a similar approach as you had here.

You're Hysterical Ft. Topless Literati by EVAN TYLER ft. Topless Literati

I liked the beats, the spoken word parts on top of it makes it a bit difficult for me to want to dance to this.

Congrats, guys! This is getting better and better. The more disintermediated the relationship between creators and curators, the better. And I think it's getting there.

I'm a huge fan of Maga Bo's work, specially for his keen ears to new music. Usually, everything he picks or points you to is gold and in this case is no different. Cool track, crazy beats and really slick video too. I didn't know Teba Shumba before this vide and really liked his flow. Thanks for the heads up, I'll post this on my blog.

I'm a big fan of the tool  and the concept already and have an account since it was still in beta. My problem is that I find it a bit confusing to use, I never know when to use it, I don't really get what to do when I go to the platform and I have a hard time replying to stuff I get from friends. I can see this being very strong as a commenting tool, generating a lot of insights, but as I said, I have a hard time figuring out how to use it. Probably my fault, for not putting enough effort into it. But still, if it were easier, I'd be using more. Happy to hear more about it.

Beautiful. I'd be curious to know what are your intentions with it. Film scoring? Sounds like a good way to go with it.

I Lose Myself by Names.

Bruno Natal

I like the spaced out vibe and how the production is borderline pop, but with "strange" beats. I'd like to see it go crazier though. Good music to make love too, so much that I'll share on a Facebook page I have just for this kind of sound, Bota pra F*der.

I like the mix and the overall timbre, the tone drums are good, but overall I think it lacks personality. There's is just too much of this kind of sound going around, it just becomes background music for when you are doing something else. I'd say explore further, go crazier. Around 2:30 things get more interesting, but then you don't resist the obvious break down. Fight it and do the unexpected.

It would be great, but it doesn't seem affordabley nowadays, does it?
