The Neptunes type beat
For any becoming more popular hip-hop artist, there are two exactly what you need to make sure you have: mic skills and hot beats. To some extent, beats are the most important thing you need, because in many cases, people won’t even care what you really are talking about if your beats aren’t hot! I’m sure you know some rappers who get lots of attention with limited skills because they get crazy beats, therefore it makes it that much more important when you’re able to really spit.

The Neptunes style beat
Selecting the most appropriate type of instrumental for the song is also really important. There are all kinds of kinds of beats to choose from at the same time. Old school, dirty south, east coast, west coast, trap, electronic plus much more are out there to pick from. so make sure you look for a style that works for you.

New england beats tend to have very compressed, “dirty” drums, lower tempos, 85-100 BPM approximately and may incorporate pianos and strings. These kinds of beats also frequently use instances of other music to flesh your track.

West Coast beats will have very clean drums, lots of guitar sounds is found, and very often the track has elements of funk music. The drums can be programmed to ‘swing’ and the basslines often roll like in traditional funk music.

Dirty South/Trap Beats are incredibly popular now and they also usually don’t use any samples in any respect, done all through keyboards, drum machines. These tracks have very precise drums with extra focus on 32nd and 64 note hi-hat sounds with discretion on the beat. These beats make use of very ‘epic’ sounding brass and string keyboard patches to generate a wall of sound.

Also popular today is adopting techniques from European dance music. Rappers like Flo-Rida, Pitbull yet others can be heard rapping over track with heavy inspiration from House, Trance, Electro,Techno as well as other dance music styles to cater to audiences in a club setting. These beats feature plenty of bright, synthesizer lead sounds and often a relentless 4/4 beat driving the background music the whole time.

Your music won’t sound real if you are using beats that match. Take into consideration your audience, do you wish to appeal to the clubs? That wouldn’t really seem sensible to pick a down tempo, Pete Rock or RZA type beat using a tempo less than 110-120 bpm (BPM). On the other hand, if you wish to appeal to the ‘conscious’ audience, may possibly not be the best plan to choose a 130 BPM will.i.am/Rick Ross sounding beat either. Ultimately, accomplish their goals though, to do whatever you feel will help your own music the best.

Of course, because the internet is everywhere, it could be much easier to download instrumental music instead of try to find a beat maker locally who are able to do a great job to make the beat just for you. Unfortunately, talent isn’t distributed evenly across the globe, so if you live in, say, Iowa it’s not as likely that you will find the tracks you’re looking for near you, no matter how talented you are. If you are looking for hit beats to operate a vehicle your career as an artist forward, hanging out finding a good place to acquire beats online is a far greater option. You should check to see the variety of beats they’ve, and definitely investigate as to if or not they can customize beats exclusively for you.
