This Is (Aussie Kiss 2011)

Title:  This Is

Album:  Aussie Kiss (mixtape)

Release Date:  06/04/2011

Single Cover/Album Cover:

Notes:  The last two songs released (“War Machine” and “Sunburn”) were about some serious issues and it had been a while since I had released a party track so I decided to up the tempo with “This is”.   The lyrics are quite fun and light-hearted this really is just a fun track to get people excited and jumping!  Oh yeah, and a bit of swearing in the chorus for the kids!

Production Techniques:  This track is a little more adventurous using effects on the vocals to try and capture the big stage sound.  The chorus uses a bit of reverb, delay, and overdrive.  There are also some vocal highlights that utilise some panning automation, EQ, and delays.  The beat itself is quite a simple use of synthesisers with a dirty acid sound.

Lyrics:

Here comes the maddest and the phattest one that matters
Other rappers getting shattered as I’m rippin ‘em to tatters
If you’ve had it, try ya badest, and ya bones’ll end up scattered
And you better change ya pants, I think ya probably shat it
What’s that smell? Go to hell, my ego’s gonna swell
I’m running rings around ya like I ring a church bell
In the face you look nice, but I gotta think twice
I know that you either want my money or my life
Like a wife or a kid, I know just what ya did
Before it gets serious ya know I gotta split
Take a shit, make a hit, jump in a mosh pit
Go skitz, play tricks, then forget what I did
Oh shit! What happened last night?
Doesn’t quite matter ‘cause I still feel alright
Despite the wild life I like to sit tight
Jump on opportunities and take ‘em for a ride (yo ride!)

Awh yeah!
Fuck yeah!
Awh yeah!
Fuck yeah!
This is…
This is…
This is…

The crazy and amazing sound to set a fire blazing
In the hearts of the tarts whose boyfriends are too lazy
Hold on, won’t be long, let me finish up this song
silvabeats sweet technique, get it on, get it on
Strong moves that are make ya gonna sweat (sweat)
You’ll have to put your mattress out like you wet the bed
Big shame! I’m not playin any games
You wanna know what I mean, then hear what I’m sayin
It’s my story, aim for glory, livin’ it memento mori
The wind in my sails, I’m drifting from the mooring
On course, off shore, heading up a big applause
When you think it’s over I’m coming back with more
Packed floors, Crowds roar
Escorts, Back doors
Drink cases of wine
When I got a bit of time, gonna hit another rhyme (yo rhyme!)

Awh yeah!
Fuck yeah!
Awh yeah!
Fuck yeah!
This is…
This is…
This is…

My top shelf, ninja stealth, stacking up my pop wealth
Open up my leather belt (if it’s hot, let it melt)
Clink up, drink up and throw ya pinky rings up
Find a pretty girly, “Hey, do ya wanna link up?”
Open the Bacardi when ya startin up the party
If you got the whipped cream, you know I got the smarties
The bass hits my body on the Don Kiluminati
My lips are spittin rhymes just like they’re disembodied
Oh snap! This is more than you can hack
You’re Kris Kross and jumpin like I’m a daddy mack
Hey fat! Put down the other snack
And make ya belly bounce so ya arse can bounce back
On track to collapse and have a flash back
Of fallin off the wagon just to make a comeback
On stage, now I’m let out my cage
I made the history book and tore out the page (yo page!)

Awh yeah!
Fuck yeah!
Awh yeah!
Fuck yeah!
This is…
This is…
This is…

I really mean it though
One time, two more
I really mean it though
This time, for sure
I really mean it though
One time, two more
I really mean it though
This time, for sure
Hey, get a little bit of practice, on with the mattress, uh, with the mattress
Hey, get a little bit of practice, on with the mattress, uh, with the mattress
Hey, get a little bit of practice, on with the mattress, uh, with the mattress
Hey, get a little bit of practice, on with the mattress, uh, with the mattress
