Rabauw - Inertia


I've always been a big triphop fan so eventually it seemed inevitable for me to try something in this style as well. However, I think this song somewhat balances between triphop and abstract hiphop.
6/4 for the larger part of the song.
Anyway, comments/feedback/criticism appreciated!

UPDATE October 20, 2006: Remastered version.


A shockwave went through...
...our beloved nation
utters of frustration
those who cry in disbelief
are the first to turn away
when the malice is done
and obsequies has come
if you could you'd lynch them all
for vengeance you call

we close our eyes
when we see someone die
afraid we might be next
when will we live as one
brutality - monstrosity
and your passivity

bitterness, shame, disgrace, hate, pain,
anger, cowardice, distrust, stigma, contrition,
remorse, fear, anguish, action and reaction,
demonstration, revelation, pressure,
selfishness, control, security, hurt, guilt,
tears, mourning, sorrow, abhorrence,

(repeat 2nd)

All of our souls ablaze
all of our eyes so blind
begin the dreaded chase
a culture clash we find
those who cry in disbelief
are the first to turn away
even as we speak
we face this world's decay

(repeat 1st)

    Is this Trip-Hop????? For me, it's darkwave!!!! It's an excellent track!!! I like the voice!!! I'd even like to remix it! :-) You're working with FL Studio, aren't you? Could I make a remix?? If u're ok, maybe we could swap some files, FLP and maybe plugins, thru msn. No? ;-)
    Anyway very nice compo!!!

    Rabauw [be] - 15 years ago

    Heh, waw, thanks, nice compliment Citizens! Well yeah if you want of course you can remix it, I'm flattered. But no FruityLoops, I use Reason. Not sure if you can do anything with the reason file?

    Erophin [be] - 15 years ago

    wow!! like it a lot nice work! i like the text... the style to me is quite metal i find...darkwave indeed.new rock fits better then trip-or abstract hiphop imo.

    one thing about the pronounciation,
    i dd like it better with the "y" like without the h before it. monstriosit'hhh'y. just short y i would prefere.
    sorry i talk as yoda somethimes...hihi.

    I like the melodie.. bassline and the little sweet ending!!!!! bigup!!!

    Bedlam [be] - 15 years ago

    very rabauwy samples and melodies and stuff :) mostly the same melody structure pattern you usually follow, but well i guess its a recipe that works good

    its very interesting, i like the mixed mumbling part

    But this is not trip hop :)

    DrGonzo [be] - 15 years ago

    yeah man this is really cool...but it's definetly not trip hop nor abstract hiphop :)
    sorry i'm too tired to read all the lyrics...gonna do that when i wake up :)

    yenneman [be] - 15 years ago

    The whispering part is great...1'17" and 2'31" rule as break melody!!!
    I like this very much because I'm addicted to simple basslines.

    The end part at 3'46" could work as a cool soundtrack...in all, glad you're back, aight :p.

    liquidbass [be] - 15 years ago

    Nice track... somehow makes me think on some nice old dark wave stuff!

    rf061992 [be] - 15 years ago

    I'm a fan? it's possybyli? yes shure...! :)

    Rabauw [be] - 15 years ago

    thanks for all the comments!
    so I guess it's rather darkwave than triphop huh...?

    MekaS [be] - 15 years ago

    Hum, maybe im a profane but, it sounds "psychedelic rock" for me... Your voice is sooooo great O_o !!

    Distreality [be] - 15 years ago

    aphone [be] - 15 years ago

    great track menneke!!! vocals could be more upfront, a bit less of this good bass synth, lot of industrial feelin for me here, maybe im wrong, good track mister de rabauwter

    orfeo [be] - 15 years ago

    Your voice suit very good with this track.And good compromise between the melody and the dark sfear.good work

    Bedlam [be] - 15 years ago

    kaoz [be] - 15 years ago


    lowry [be] - 15 years ago

    i like this one
    are you a fan of clan of xymox ?

    Rabauw [be] - 15 years ago

    Not really a fan but it's a style of music I like a lot.

    Krael [be] - 15 years ago

    Nice one, good voice-effects, bass is indeed perhaps a bit loud. Also like the balance between the melody and the rest, they work very well together.

    Sapaj [be] - 14 years ago

    great indus or EBM sensation for this stuff

    DeHomunculus [be] - 14 years ago

    holy... if i wrote my own bible right now, you'ld be a saint in it... i'll stop listening now, before i don't dare to listen my own musicagain... +fav
