Ace Attorney JFA ending theme - hiphop/smooth jazz

Recommended Posts

Hi all! Haven't been around here in ages, but I'm happy to be making game remixes a gain! I wanted to tackle a new genre, so I started jamming out to the Justice for All ending thing, possibly my favorite song in the game, and came up with this:

I want to get into making hip hop beats, but I have NO idea what I'm doing, looking forward to any feedback! I was thinking of swinging the 16ths for one thing.

Thank in advance.

Hey. I'd suggest a kick with more bass if you're going for hip hop and as you said, swing is important as well. I'd need to hear this extended to give more help.

Specifically he kick itself shouldn't be swung quite as much as I feel. Especially now that you added more bass to it. You could get away with that if you wanted to go more in the smooth jazz direction though probably.

Speaking of bass, you should get some reference songs in this smooth hip hop style your going for and get a feel for how their kicks and bass balance with the rest of the track.

Took some feedback into account: Sped up the tempo to 90bpm, got a different beat and processed it. Just generally messed around the mix. Gonna look into spicing up the pad a bit, possibly getting an e-piano groove going. Not sure what else what else.

Been experimenting with the structure, but I'm honestly kind of clueless.

You're definitely on the right track. Changing the drums was a good move. Implement the things you've said as well.

Maybe having some sort of improv style solo with the guitar or that e piano you mentioned would work well. Also, maybe try and find an RnB style vocal sample (not necessarily singing any lyrics, just singing notes, if you know what i mean) that complements the melody.
