Sharing a song with you all that I really like. This is the dubstep mix by a fellow classmate of mine.




Further discussion...

What do you think of the genre "Dubstep" and WHY?

I'd like to hear real opinions instead of "because it's sh!t" or "because I like it" - I would like reasons behind this! :D

It's basically a cover, the same way you could turn this into a rock tune. :)

That's fair enough, I assume you're not interested in any form of trance/club type music? (Yes there's loads of genres in that but I'm shortening the message - cba to type loads)

I don't think there was enough. It's a good demo and a good start. I'm not an expert in this genera.

it seems to start like the original then all the wackyness comes in...I think it would be cool if the wackyness left and came back again. the drums i think needs to be more clubbish louder and bassyer.

at the midle/end of the song it has this really mellow section i liked it and the is faded to the end. this mellow section was nice.

if it was me i'd restructure the song. by nakid i mean no wackyness

beginning nakid intro
let the wackyness begin
wackyness fades
nakid verse (keeping added beat)
mellow bridge (makes you feel like it's going to end)
wackyness with verse
mellow out

I think it would put the listenr on more of a ride.

I do think dance plays a very important part in music evolution. I can see/hear what the person is attempting in this song although it might not be the best song for this project. Postman wasnít a good dance song to begin with (and I always liked the Beatlesí version better). It does make a valiant attempt to provide a dance beat after all of the mixing but you wonít know for sure until you slip it into a night of music at the local club. In all honesty it didnít have me ďchair dancingĒ as I listened to it but it did keep my interest. At the end I felt something was missing like maybe a better structure.
Not sure how it was done but it obviously took a lot of time and talent to bust up the loops and make seamless transitions. The problem I hear in this mix is that the song loses some of its energy in spots and so the driving force of the dance beat goes limp in places. A little bit more editing is needed IMO in some spots to help keep the energy building instead of fading. Once the energy starts to build you donít want it to drop off. Keep in mind that I havenít been out to a dance club in ages so my opinions probably donít carry much weight by modern standards. (I tossed out my slinky black dress ages ago)

Im sorry. This is ... wacky ...or Im too conservative to understand this. I personally didnt find much good on this...3:02 to 3:14 and 2:10 to 3:00 was only part I could listen without hesitating.

Why?, hard to tell. Maybe I agree with tele that it was too wacky...I didnt find any rhythmic functions worked to me. Im not proper to analyze this kind of stuff anyway... lol I still didnt like it.

Cheers

I don't really think this is something you could dance to, more on the lines of banging your head to it. and it's probably sound better if you're high.

This is the way dubstep is.

The reason for me asking REAL musicians for their opinion is because I go around the street and ask random people and they tell me they love it.

Why?

Probably because it's so different, or... just insane bass. I really don't know. But more and more people are playing music at clubs with this style, and it's actually getting somewhere.

Personally in my opinion- it's good, but only for now. It's a phase. and it's also what's leading music to it's death.

However, I'll play you something else... (If anyone is still around)


This is more chilled out compared to the first one... tell me what you think.

I actually liked it. i dont know why, but my head was a'boppin through the whole thing.
the second one i didnt like as much, seemed to be too much of a normal, traditional beat. i think what drew me into the first one was the uniqueness to it, and the mix with retro music.

when it comes down to it i look at dubstep the same way i look at other genres of music: there's some good and some bad tunes. In a club i would defiantly choose dubstep over crappy modern R&b or repetitive gangsta rap remixes but its not really the type of thing i would sit at home and listen to.

I liked the mister postman tune but mainly for its novelty value

the second one was sick, good beat, interesting structure, well used samples, all mixed nicely maybe a little to long..... got bored towards the end

still alive -preferred the video to the music on this one

boom (feat. Datsic) - cool intro,... @ Jazz- made me think of angry middle-eastern transformers (the fact that this song conjured that image means it has to be good.)
