What a vivid movie soundtrack entry.

You created such a majestic beat that could be used in a wide variety of movies (Hobbit, Lord of the Rings type movies, and fantasy movies o my).

Absolutely love how you include those ax pick noises, the whip, the choir sounds, and that epic harp o my. You incorporate so much to create such a VIVID picture. I can close my eyes and see creatures and fairies working away in the mines.

Such an awesome take on the theme my hat is off to you. You delivered once again. And that artwork man did that help set the theme very well as well.

I don't want to stop playing this because of how it makes me feel wow. Takes me to such a place. Thank you for this and for all the time and effort you put into creating this entry.

Holy smokes what an incredible, heart-wrenching entry.

What a challenge making a soundtrack for this type of movie.

You created such emotion with your instruments, vocals, and arrangement it gave me serious goosebumps. I could envision being there and witnessing the event just with your entry playing. That is some serious skill.

And to be able to play mohan veena and the cumbus wow wow that is truly extraordinary. It's not every day you can to listen to those instruments played with such passion and skill.

Much appreciation for sharing this vivid, emotion-causing entry. Much love and respect @nathankaye.

You used such classic movie inspiration in the form of Interstellar and Blade Runner and created a beat that would work so ideally in a space and/or consciousness movie.

Love the impact that sound you bring in at 1:14 has so serene and calming. And that synth you bring in at 2:00 what a vibe that creates.

Love how calming the vibe is around 3:21 is what a skill to create that atmosphere.

You dominated the theme with an epic soundtrack made for a movie you directed, acted, and wrote.

Dayummmmmmmm let's goooo

So many epic sounds you integrate in this one from that piano to those kicks and epic bass.

Love how strong you bring the beat in at 0:27 and around 1:36 man what a way to drive emotion and create an awesome atmosphere.

I can envision this being included in some build-up to the conflict scenes especially in a space-related movie.

Thank you for the time and effort you put into creating this beat. Much appreciation.

@grizzle with an average of 4.30 from the judging panel winning 15 SMOKE for 15 points.

Ayyyy what a sci-fi soundtrack we got here o my.

Love how you use the synths you choose to create that sci-fi 80s style vibe. And that sound around 1:27 yessssssss.

This would be so ideal for a Stranger Things episode where sci-fi and nostalgia intersect.

Appreciate you sharing this vivid picture creating beat.

@redsfallin with an average of 4.30 from the judging panel winning 15 SMOKE for 15 points.


Ayyyyyy what a beat for movie producers to use in their film.

You can chop this up into multiple segments for a movie so well.

Love the chase scene type atmosphere in the first 1:03 and then you hit us with that new sound and we are off.

And the middle segment around 1:50 and on I can envision a doctor operating in a scary type music with this playing to build suspense and emotion.

And that sound you bring in at 2:50 yesssss that reiterates that scary vibe.

You are on to something here buddy movie soundtracks is a HUGE market for music producers

@fromlanada with an average of 4.17 from the judging panel winning 13 SMOKE for 13 points.


Woahhhhh what a vibe you create with this entry.

So many awesome sounds you integrate into this beat to create a vivid atmosphere.

Love those "vocals/chant" you incorporate throughout and those spacey sounds.

Totally envision this being played in a space movie scene or a flashback of a memory scene. Has that nostalgic factor.

Thank you for taking the time and effort to create this beautiful entry. Much love and respect.

@grant-vegra with an average of 4.13 from the judging panel winning 12 SMOKE for 12 points.

Woahhhhh let's gooooooooo.

Totally get that Arabian nights/ The Mummy feel from this one.

My favorite part is how strong you bring the beat in at 1:50 especially after calming us down with that segment from 1:33-1:49. That bass is epic o myyyyyy.

This is 3+ minutes that I am sure movie producers would love to incorporate to help set the setting and tone especially given a certain setting.

Appreciate you sharing this with the community to enjoy.

Support this awesome Steemian here: Don't forget to make a Steemit post so the community can support you.

@mraggaj with an average of 4.09 from the judging panel winning 11 SMOKE for 11 points.

What a collab.

Love when producers get together and create art together. What a freakin vibe you create with this one.

That sound you bring in at 0:46 and throughout the beat hits the soul man. What a sound to incorporate.

And that bass and kicks o weeee gotta love how distinguished they are.

This beat could fit in a lot of different movie scenes (first to come to mind is a new version of Dazed and Confused) which is what movie producers love.

Much love and respect for you and @jackdub coming together to create this one.
