    AM:PM Sings

    Its been sometime since I joined this forum , I should admit, I have felt intimidated by the talent you got to hear here. So it took me some time to post something for review. Nevertheless, am hell bent on learning from the forums critique, so here is is a track I did a few days ago.
    Its in soul tinged song with a easy lilt http://www.audioshots.com/auditorium...ad.php?id=2250
    Sequencer: FLStudio
    Vocals: Me, Myself and I (AM:PM)
    Thanks

    Re: AM:PM Sings

    My friend, why on earth were you worried about getting your music reviewed here? Your song is absolutely awesome!!!

    This song is ready for the next Cafe Del Mar compilation. Nice instrumentation, very nice vocals (I don't understand the language but your singing skills are great!) and all in all a great mix! I would'nt categorize it as "soul", the sound is more chill-out/ambient with reggae influences in my opinion!!

    But absolutely fantastic work!!! You should seriously consider sending this out to some record labels. Very very nice work!!

    Maybe you can explain to us what the lyrcis mean???

    No need to fell intimidated. It`s always great to hear the different kind of music, that people compose . I`m not a composer myself, but I listen to your song and I think it`s nice . It sounds like a mix between African and European music and I like that , I used to listen to African music many years ago (unfortunately I can`t remember where i put the tape ).
    Hope you get some feedback

    Hi Rune,
    Thanks for the positive review. I feel "lifted".
    I wrote the song last week when I came back from my homeland -Zambia. Zambia like many 3rd world countries is hard hit by the HIV pandemic and you get to see alot of tragic "stories" where innocent young people fall in love with the "wrong" person.
    "Alekubepa" means he/she is cheating you.
    I am doing an non-literal translation since alot of people have asked the same question but I would like to present the translation with an explanatory essay placing it the cultural context within which the lyrics are embedded. I will trying finishing it asap.
    Again I say thanks for the encouraging words (Det var pæn af dig )

    Hi Jette, thanks for taking some time. True, to the point, I sing in CiBemba (a Zambian language) but I was aiming for wider appeal by keeping it in a contemporary vein

    On a lighter note ....hvis du ikke kan finde dit tape med afro music, bare lyt til dette nummer ) If you cant find your tape with african music, then just listen to this song.

    Re: AM:PM Sings

    I guess I wasn`t totally wrong then, even though the tape I used to listen to was in Swahili , I think (bought it in Kenya), I can even remember a little of one of the songs: Jambo jambo bwana habari zuri sana (or something like that)

    But still I like the mix (it doesn`t sound to African and it doesn`t sound to European, hope this makes sense ). But yes I will definitely listen to your song, now that I can`t find my own, thanks

    Thanks
    The first one doesn`t work , but I have listen to number two and I like that as well, it`s quite catchy and your voice is really good (I like that "rød cecil" voice )
    You just keep up the good work

    No worry I will fix it and put it up in a convenient spot in the course of the nite. I just realised I need to have my songs in one spot at least
