So, here's my robot themed submission to this year's Robot Day contest. I'm really excited to see how it turns out this year since it turned out so well last year. Also, I'm curious to see how people like this compared to "Heavy Terror Machine". Enjoy :)

Edit: Yes! #3 spot in the top five! Thanks so much! :D

Edit 2: Due to some constructive comments, I added some more variation to the bassline. I also added a few things to the intro and buildup.

Wow.

This really remembers me of DatsiK, Downlink and Excision... Even if I like more old dubstep... like Burial, Kode9, Benga, Skream, Kromestar, Loefah, Digital Mystikz... This song is ultra mega hyper awesomely EXCELLENT!

Pretty sweet

You used the same pneumatics noises as heard in Hydraulic by Datsik. Because it sounds exactly like that. Also, the pre-drop sample was featured in another song but I can't remember which. The drop was pretty dirty though. Originality is the key to success.


alextheDJ responds:

Actually, I found the sample on freesound.org and used it in my song before I knew Datsik used it in his song. A lot of big artists get samples from there. At least I used the sample kind of in the background unlike Datsik, who blatantly slapped it in without any other instrument or sample to accompany it.

I try to keep my songs as original as possible, including this song. Just because one sample was also used by a big dubstep artist doesn't mean this song lacks originality.

Also, originality, unfortunately, is not always the key to success. There are TONS of songs, in Electronic music and all other genres, that rip off other songs and are still very popular. For example, in his song "Body Shot", Tantrum Desire ripped off the Sherlock Holmes theme and the song, if I recall correctly, was pretty popular amongst Drum n' Bass fans. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying this is OK to do because it's definitely not. However, in this case, I did not rip off any song(s).

So, just think about it more before you go around pointing out what samples people used. In fact, instead of doing that, how about give people some constructive criticism instead? That's a much better thing to do. :)

Badass

Really neat dubstep, keeping the NG dubstep genre fresh.

I really like your wobbles, they're really awesome and sound somewhat different from the regular wobbles used. I also love the variation to the track in general, in particular the bassline, which so many people seem to neglect.

You could do something more out of the drops and the rhythmics, but that's about all I can complain on. I really like the melody.
