Best neptunes track not by the neptunes... I reckon that Britney spears one would be a contender.

Dude, that *was* by the Neptunes

Blazin Squad 'Flip Reverse' obviously, though.

You mean as in "Not as artist" i.e. remixer...?

That Badly Drawn Boy one.

Nah man... the other one

Hmmm... was that Britney/madonna track the neptunes?

if so, they're not admitting to it.

Nah, 'Slave 4 U' and 'Boys' were tho'.

Enrique (Enrique), Friday, 19 December 2003 12:33 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

i'm taking this to mean 'track that sounds like it was produced by Neptunes but wasn't'

Nio 'Do You Think You're Special'

This thread needs rules, sicne 'Milkshake' is by the Neps.

was that christina aguilera one with little kim and whole verses that didn't seem to contain any words by the neptunes?
it sounded like a bit of a neptunes rip off,although i quite liked it...

robin (robin), Friday, 19 December 2003 14:44 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Ok rules...

1. The song has NO INVOLVEMENT whatsoever with the individuals Chad Hugo or Pharell Williams.

2. Despite the above, when people hear it they go "Hey, is that a neptunes track"

crap. rules make my nice thread geeky :,(

Bow Wow's "Let's Get Down" sounded kind of like Jazze Phae's impression of the Neptunes circa 2001, but better.

Al (sitcom), Friday, 19 December 2003 15:48 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

"Flip Reverse" seconded.

Sugababes - 'Soul Sound' Soulchild remix

The alternative was Zena - 'Let's Get This Party Started', but it's mondo derivative, vacuous shit.

is that track by christina where fumbles after old skool cred in the accompanying video by staging a would-be 'battle' in the omnipresent hood - รก la jason nevins' already-then-retro video for his remix of 'it's like that' - between the b-boys on the one side and flygirls on the other side ... is that track by the 'tunes?

seven years pass...

Right now I'm totally obsessed with The Neptunes' percussion/drum sound, in tracks like:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKjii7RE7PQ

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EDIg35QnI8

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEzWZYjUu3Y

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gul0ZDtnGzI

can someone point me towards some Non-Neps tracks with a similar sound?

ha weird how the first thing popping into my head w/ that twista was uk funky

but i think its just the bongos

arachno-misogynist (D-40), Saturday, 18 June 2011 01:37 (six years ago) Permalink

the first 3 were from that mid period after Justified when they got more into live drum sounds and looping Pharrell playing drums, i was never really into that stuff but there's definitely a lot of it... "Diddy" is more like classic early hit parade drum machine Neptunes imo

some dude, Saturday, 18 June 2011 01:37 (six years ago) Permalink

yeah im def hearing diff feels from a few of these

arachno-misogynist (D-40), Saturday, 18 June 2011 01:37 (six years ago) Permalink

like the money maker drums arent far from grinding, really

arachno-misogynist (D-40), Saturday, 18 June 2011 01:38 (six years ago) Permalink

it was funny when Pharrell went on and on about "Give It Up" being a Baltimore club homage but there was just a vague similarity in the tempo and hook but the production was miles away

some dude, Saturday, 18 June 2011 01:38 (six years ago) Permalink

my fav of this Neptunes style is probably Twista's "Lavish"

some dude, Saturday, 18 June 2011 01:38 (six years ago) Permalink

this was another neptunes mid period minimalist drums joint

yeah it prob is just the bongos, but I'm getting a sort of latin, funky vibe from the percussion in these tracks. here's another one:

Brainwasher this comes to mind as excellent fake neptunes with gorgeous percussion:

oh man good call. i was just listening to that lp again

arachno-misogynist (D-40), Saturday, 18 June 2011 01:49 (six years ago) Permalink

ha that is a dope one, I love that album. This "Drop It Like It's Hot" remix is crazy, I don't think I've ever heard this O_O... "Lavish" is great too

The Brainwasher, Saturday, 18 June 2011 01:59 (six years ago) Permalink

the Neps really fell off :( ... I'm hoping for a resurgence soon

oh man this sounds way better than i remember. well, the beat does

arachno-misogynist (D-40), Saturday, 18 June 2011 02:01 (six years ago) Permalink

oh yeah i liked that track

trying to remember the last Neptunes track i really liked, maybe Clipse "I'm Good"? you know what was amazingly awful was the score for Despicable Me, almost ruined the movie for me.

some dude, Saturday, 18 June 2011 02:44 (six years ago) Permalink

wow, Neptunes produced that terrible T.I./Chris Brown joint last year? i had no idea

some dude, Saturday, 18 June 2011 02:46 (six years ago) Permalink

I liked this Game track from last year:

You'd think w all the grinding reverence there would be more songs that tried to sound like it

mystikal's 'danger' could fit in here despite being early neptunes
