Song Production Information
The soulful vocals of the captivating diva, JP Miles, shine through on this track.
The genre is "HIP HOP", but I tried to make it less underground and more melodic.
The selling point of this song is that there is scratching!
If you can get past the triple rhythm, you might be one step closer to becoming a real DJ.
Video Production Information
It's not so much an award winning song as it is an upper-ground R&B song with hip-hop elements, but when you play it in-game, you'll need a super scratch technique that's just like a real DJ battle.
It's a real scrubbing paradise!
So, I tried to capture the duality of the song and give it an upper-ground R&B feel with some rough and noisy effects that look like it's been scraped and scratched all over the place.
When the song title is sang in the lyrics, I timed the video to be eye catching by moving the female character around.
I really wanted to do a live-action version, but due to various reasons, I have to use CG characters...
