    HI All,

    Went to the page rolled the dice and got........Indian House (India Spotlight Collection and Expansion Liquid Energy), never thought of that as a mix. I only picked a few highlights from each one. It was a good fit and I'll do more Indian House.

    My submission for the contest is titled "Don't Disrespect". The wheel on Native Instruments page showed Acoustic and Drill, which has been an awesome coincidence because, first, I have been keen on creating acoustic tracks lately, and second, have always wanted to make a drill beat. After finishing the instrumental, I thought that the beat on its own was rather bland. I searched for some UK drill acapellas on the internet and found the one that you can hear in the track. Huge shout out to yinte, an user from Looperman, who provided these amazing vocals. They improved my track massively. From acoustic loop pack I used two instances of 'Acoustic - Picked Acoustic Busker - 100BPM' (one is half-timed and is present in the song from the very beginning and the second is pitched up and appears later in the song). When it comes to the drill pack I used two samples: 'HiHats[140] Pull Up 2', 'Strings[70] Frontline' and 'SFX Purple Drill 1'. Everything was created in Maschine and mostly using NI stuff. I had a lot of fun creating the song and I hope you will like it! Tell me what you think.

    Super well done @jakubpatok! The acoustic sample you've got is perfect for the blend.

    Thanks a lot! I'm glad you like it. Right, the acoustic guitar sample fit perfectly into the drill beat.

    hope you find it interesting

    I've got film score and synth but also used sounds from ashlight and I recorded guitar and bass. Some drum parts are made by me with some vst instruments and some of them are samples from bandlab.

    Ding! The giveaway is now over, and the submissions were definitely multifaceted. But there can be only one winner, so let's have the randomness speaks for itself.

    Congrats @jakubpatok! Huge drill banger you got there, the rules were duly followed with great insights on the production process.
