Hi KVR'ians

Please listen to and comment a new song from my band Portonova on Soundcloud. We're playing jazz with all kind of influences: ska, hiphop, house.
'Gonna See My Baby' is skajazz, based on an AABA-jazz chord scheme

The song started as a sketch in Ableton Live. Drums were recorded on location using a Pro Tools set. We've recorded the other instruments and vocals using Cubase 6 and did the mix with Cubase too.

This is a demo for a great track!
I could be completely wrong.

she is an amazing singer. enjoyed all of the other instruments too. great stuff!

is that a real singer or a special effects trick? her voice is _high_. if this is an actual, un-effected recording of a singer, it's great.

btw, i couldn't get your link to work. found the song through this:

http://soundcloud.com/portonova/tracks

it's now playing 'i want you here'. hats off to you. this is good stuff.

love the choice of notes in the vocals and sax.

'since i met you' has got a great vibe. i'd like to hear more of the female lead singer on this one.

'honesty' is a great one. great singer. of the several listened to, this is my favorite mix/arrangement.

great stuff! to me, it sounds like old school (1970s and before) music, with modern twists (samples, stutters, etc.) added in.

'wonderful day'... awesome!

Thanx, yes she's amazing. It's all her real voice. But when we're performing live, she only wants to sing this skasong once. It's very demanding for her voice.

Thanx, I'll repair the link :)

The right link seems to be:
https://soundcloud.com/portonova/gonna-see-my-baby

but also listen to:
https://soundcloud.com/portonova/i-want-you-here I Want You Here
and https://soundcloud.com/portonova/since-i-met-you

People seem to like those songs too :)
