Hyundai 30Beats Remix – Thomas Jones

Thomas Jones

Thomas has been making music for about eight years and even started playing the guitar when he was 13 before discovering the joys of home recording.

Thomas tells us:

“With my remix I tried to strike a balance between acoustic and electronic sounds. I always approach music with a strong melodic idea but love to incorporate non-musical sounds. I used about 18 of the samples, chopping them up and applying various effects. I then added a guitar, bass, keyboard line and vocals.”

Funky-cool…. makes you bop your head as if you’re driving with the windows down and the radio turned up. Best one of the group!

What a Happy Hyundai theme tune!
I want to see the car in action with Tom’s Hyundai theme rolling it along.
Neat cars! (I loooove the coupes!)
Neat tune Tom. Ads team get the
story boards rolling – happy young drivers, happy young Mums, happy commuters, happy explorers and intrepid travellers!
And happy eco-peoples in many countries!
Go for it Tom! Good luck from Eos-Dai
to Tom with Hyundai!

I agree the song is alright. But it isn’t a Hyundai remix really is it?

brandykins –

You wouldn’t recognise a good beat – even if you were beaten up!

yy – and this comes from your position as a master producer i suppose ? so how many records have you sold in your life then ?

And Tom – your entry is by far the best. Those on here, such as pos51, are jealous.

actually nikkys track is the best submitted. it has originality and freshness which toms does not, and i favour that in music more than stuff that sounds like other stuff youve heard before. to suggest im jealous of some amateur who has given a free track to a pr company is utterly ridikled onions.

Well unlucky Thomas. We both had a chance until recently, but the new 30 beats news spells the end for me. I am going to tell my friends not to waste their time and enjoy the weekend.

You are probably as perplexed as i about the rise of Vantage. He obviously had a technique that they could not prove was cheating, or had a better strategy than us. I thought it would be the person with the most mates that won at the start. Well that wasn’t true was it? It’s just a shame that i thought his tune was poor.

Not sure if this has been a positive marketing campaign for Hyundai or not. Everyone except Vantage is probably a bit pissed off at the moment.

He may well have used 18 samples but we can’t hear them. that’s the point i think people have tried to make. anyway. immaterial now.

Thanks again to everyone who has voted for me all through the month. Your support is very much appreciated!

Nikky – I think you’re probably right. There are a load of entries that deserved to win above Vantage. I can’t wait to find out how he managed to get so many votes!

Catchy. Punchy.
I love it – it will work well with the visual effects Hyundai will put into the vid.
Nice one dude !

Great strong definite tempo…which then picks up the positive use of vocals and other techniques…….I really wish you well with this.
Good luck

Unlucky Thomas. was an extremely close call. You were up there all the time from the start, and i believe you had one of the few really good tracks up here. I really had given up on it until i saw vantage was out, then i just went mental around town. Good luck with your music.

“Where’s kidderz?” Here I am! I generally just voted throughout the month without commenting but you pushed me over the edge! Gutted for Tom, we all did the best we could but Nicky had a pretty sweet tune and some mad promotional skills as well by the looks of it.

Can you blame a group of friends for supporting their mate and defending him against idiotic comments? I’m sure you would’ve been the same pos51. Grats to Nicky, grats to Colin (who had my favourite track on here) and unlucky Tom…

🙂 yeah i do that to people, they just cant stand the fact that im right 🙂 i cant blame a group of friends for supporting him – but what they were defending him against i dont know, the general level of intelligence was not that impressive tbh, i loved winding them up about the negative thing though well funny…. anyway no hard feelings. there would have been if nikky had lost but he didnt so in this case ill pretend im a good sport. bye 30beats and cheers for the interesting time! dont expect any of us to buy hyundais or anything though…

Tom,

Well I never saw that coming I must say! I was out on Saturday night and just assumed you’d won. But then I suppose this competition has been full of surprises hasn’t it…

Bad luck mate.

All the best

Pos51, don’t pretend to be a good sport OR intelligent.

I wouldn’t expect you to buy a Hyundai, but you could do the world a favor and get yourself run over by one.

Cheers!
