Feel It All Over by SeedMusikGroup

Song: Feel It All Over

Reviewer: Just Jordan

Positive Comments: The Vocals sit right on top of the mix and that is crucial for the genre. The arrangement and variations are cool and keep the listeners attention.

Constructive Comments: The drums seem to not be as prominent as they should be for the genre. The vocals are nice just bring the drums up a bit, they lack the punch/slap. The instrumental is cool, my only suggestion for that is omonious pad in the background be removed/replaced. It seems out of place for the vibe.

Send It In Down / Hip Hop Dance by Uncle Spider & The Electric Dirt Clods

Uncle Spider & The Electric Dirt Clods

Broadjam Artist: Uncle Spider & The Electric Dirt Clods
Song: Send It In Down / Hip Hop Dance

Reviewer: Just Jordan

Positive Comments: It has some good vibe and originality in the melodies and instrumentation.

Constructive Comments: I think it kind of jumps between genres and is confusing for the listener. It has what sounds like the standard karaoke synth pad and bells, then jumps to a screaming guitar. I think maybe separating the 2 instruments and making 2 songs out of it would be beneficial. The one with the pads and bells is just very different from the guitar.

Chasing Dreams by MARK NEWMAN

Broadjam Artist: MARK NEWMAN
Song: Chasing Dreams

Reviewer: Just Jordan

Positive Comments: I like the upbeat feel of the track it is rather uplifting. Reminds me a bit of G-Easy in the delivery. The lyrics fit the song well.

Constructive Comments: The instrumental during the verses is a bit repetitive, it does break down at the end but maybe dropping out some instruments would help to keep the excitement. It sounds to me like a homemade beat, with a sub-par mix. If this is a demo, then no need to worry it serves its purpose. If this is for release I would look into having it mixed/mastered or possibly shopping around for beats from producers with a little more experience.

Reviewer: Just Jordan

Positive Comments: It’s catchy and overall I would say it’s a nice instrumental. The horns are cool and I like the rise.

Constructive Comments: I think it’s a tad repetitive, and could use some more definition in where is the chorus and where is the verse. Also, some type of bridge or breakdown would add tremendous value to it.

Hold On by The Watchman

The Watchman

Broadjam Artist: The Watchman
Song: Hold On

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Totally liking this right from the opening groove that could be an Alabama Shakes tune. And it just keeps getting better with the tasty Wurlitzer keys and relaxed, soulful vocals that sound a bit like Ry Cooder. Phil Cook is a more contemporary reference. There’s a classic Gospel feel underneath this, and there are some superb lyrics, with a slam dunk hook on the chorus. Hearing tunes like this is what makes reviewing worth the time and effort–this is excellent!

Constructive Comments: There are a few places where I think you need to fix the pitch of the vocals. More harmony vocals coming in behind would do so much to this–imagine if you have the Blind Boys of Alabama coming in. Listen to The Blind Boys of Alabama & Taj Mahal – What Can I Do? This is so so good but make it GREAT.

Nick Fuse & Jim Pearson: No More by Nick Fuse

Nick Fuse

Broadjam Artist: Nick Fuse
Song: Nick Fuse & Jim Pearson: No More

Reviewer: Massimo Carola

Positive Comments: I like that song, very intimate and powerful.

Constructive Comments: It’s a great song recording in general. The only improvement I can suggest is related to the ambiance of the piano that seems to belong to another world. It’s really distracting. Also, the left side guitar sometimes obscures the lead vocal in the tentative to be dynamic, I hear also a few distorted chords in the highest dynamic part. Also, this has the effect of distracting from the lyrics.

Do it Do it Better Now by CAEDMON’S DREAM

CAEDMON'S DREAM

Broadjam Artist: CAEDMON’S DREAM
Song: Do it Do it Better Now

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: There are some very strong elements here. It has a late 70’s Soul feel or even 80’s Vandross. Nice slinky minor progression.

Constructive Comments: Sounds like this was brought over from a tape? The ride cymbal is distorted and very brittle sounding and it’s way too loud in the mix–getting in the way of the vocals. Overall the mix has a too-crisp high end. The groove could use a more flowing bassline that doesn’t stop and leave space. The vocal is distorted. Lyrically it’s not really coming through with a clear message. This could be a really strong tune with just some simple things done…

Call My Name by Earl.C.Webb

Broadjam Artist: Earl.C.Webb
Song: Call My Name

Reviewer: Massimo Carola

Positive Comments: Beautiful song. Very interesting too. I think it has a great potential.

Constructive Comments: I want to say that there is little to say about the quality of the song. In my taste, I would have put the backing vocals a bit darker and lower in level. Also, the choice of the bass drum sound and the snare drum sound is too electronic and I feel a more organic sound would help to keep the mood in place. There is a lot to room to improve the mix too. But in general is a great, high-quality song.
