Two by the same artist, and guess what? Both are Dubstep :(.

1. (Summ3rtime)
Oh god. Sex to the ears. Yes.

2. (Combustion Dynasty)
Pretty solid heavy tune. Mixing was a bit shallow, but hey, whatever.

3. (Dragonzball P)
Junk. Made it to super-status because it's Oney. At least it's listed as 'comedy'...

4. (Headrush)
I dunno... cafeteria-grade wubstep? Mixing could be a LOT better, especially during the buildups when the mid-range is squished to bits. Meh.

5. (Drumstep wip)
Same dude as above, and same problems. Mixing is just weird. I did like it more than the previous song, because he plays around with his beats a little.

The guy that made the last two isn't terrible. He has potential, he certainly knows how to string together a beat. He's just not doing anything NEW, and what he is doing isn't good enough to stand out, etc. He seems pretty popular(?) so maybe he'll get better.

The only submission that deserved its place in my opinion was Waterflame's.

Guys who get popular making par level music never really feel the need to get better in my experience.

Reminds me of Driver's game soundtrack, really funky. The song itself is very well composed , it never gets boring, the song is always changing patterns every 8 compasses which makes the variety amazing, i pretty much lost the count of the patterns used on this track.

Great Track!

#2

the track is pretty good, the mixing is clear but the song it's kinda repetitive. As a drummer I've always disliked metal, maybe because most kids that i encounter brag so much about how they kick ass on drums and they just play metal. I think the reason why i dislike metal is that it's just speed and no technique (talking about drums.)

But the track is nice besides my personal tastes

#3

Funny, but not good. Anyone with a kazoo and a microphone can pretty much the same. It's just his name what it makes it good.

#4 and #5

I have never liked his style, he always makes his chorus (drop) the same :

Change the patch every 4 or 2 compasses during the chorus. Seriously that's his formula on every track i have heard. The mixing could be better too.

Don't get me wrong , The tracks are good but i just can't understand why is he so popular. I think i even saw featured on dubstep net.

Decent. This kind of funk tends to sound a bit much like garageband loops unfortunately. Could've used a melody or some sort of consistent thing.

Fun facts: the first two tracks start with vocals (and one breaks the AP rules trololol), the next two are both by the same person, and the last one is terrible!

the last one is not that bad.

Atleast it has a structure and nothing is out of tonality. The instruments could be better though.

but we have all been through that 'basshunter phase.

Meh, my standards are very high for dance songs, I'm afraid. If I hear that bass synth or that filter automating fade-in of the piano intro one more time in a song I'm going to puke.

Although yeah I guess it's slightly better than other 'Basshunter' songs on Newgrounds.

1. Jesus christ that's a lot of songs on that album. I'm no fan of this particular style of candytrance however.
2. No real remarkable qualities to this song imo. Also 4-5 minutes too long.
3. Standard aimless composition with sub-par mixing.
4. I don't get it.
5. I enjoyed the chillness of it until that awful lead came in and amateurified it imo. But I'm always happy when people I recognize get some time to shine.
