The #topbeat RoundUp 28/11/16

The #topbeat RoundUp 28/11/16

We kick it all off with some good-timey, summer-holiday-y vibes from Kontrabandz and the instrumental "Closer". Fair warning - this may make you want to drop everything and jump on a plane somewhere hot where you can party. And with this playing in your headphones, why not?

The #topbeat RoundUp 21/11/16

The #topbeat RoundUp 21/11/16

Let's get this party started with Penacho and his second #topbeat "Legacy". Penacho has been staking his claim for the king of the charts for some time now, with 8 beats currently in the top 100, it would look strange to see the charts without Penacho's name in it!

The #topbeat RoundUp 07/11/16

Last Monday was Halloween (in case you missed it) and InsaneBeatz captured the mood perfectly with the eerie sounding "Scary Movie". But whilst the novelty of Halloween wears off, that of this instrumental does not. Turn the lights down low and have a listen..

The #topbeat RoundUp 31/10/16

The #topbeat RoundUp 31/10/16

We begin with some real good-time vibes and a touch of country rap from DYAD Sound & "Richest". It's refreshing to hear a beat like this - a mixture of Rap, Pop & Country - not conforming to traditional sounds, and not afraid to stand out from the crowd

Youtube - Goodbye Annotations, Hello ‘End Screens’

Youtube - Goodbye Annotations, Hello ‘End Screens’

It looks like Youtube is phasing out the ugly (but useful) annotations to make way for 'End Screens'.

As far as I can tell, the main reason for the change is to make your videos more clickable on mobiles. Annotations do not show on mobiles, so with this change you should see a lot more interaction. However, you can only place the new End Screens in the last 20 seconds of your video - hence the name. So people will need to be watching your videos to the end to get any clicks

The positioning is also quite limiting compared to annotations, as they must fit inside a blue box that's placed in your video (only in editing), and some of the screens are quite large, even at minimum size - and some of the screens cannot be resized.

That's my first impression after just coming across it, has anyone else used them yet? What do you think?

You can read more about the change here: https://techcrunch.com/2016/10/26/youtube-launches-mobile-friendly-end-screens-feature-to-keep-viewers-watching-more-video/

The #topbeat RoundUp 24/10/16

The #topbeat RoundUp 24/10/16

NY Bangers. The name says it all. When it's an NY Bangers beat, you know it's gonna be good. And "On God" holds true to that fact. Unfortunately there is no Soundcloud track, due to copyright, but you can watch the video here

"Hype" by Jefferson Beats was one of the easiest choices for a #topbeat. As soon as the beat kicked in, with the kick drum pounding each ear alternatively, the decision was made. How could this not be chosen, right? Give it a listen and I'm sure you'll agree
