Trance vs Dubstep

Just recently I was exposed to DubStep and thought it sounded too glorious to not see what i could do with it. Most of the time I make long trance tracks with a good humming bass but changing the lfo on the bass made such a funky sound I fell in love. So this is my first track with anything of a DubStep nature. Please review and vote


First dubstep attempt?

I'm guessing this was your first dubstep attempt as you've only recently been exposed to it. You've definitely captured that dubstep style, heavy powerful bass, with basically minimal everything else.

However, I think the beat could use a little jazzing up. I think there's a distinct lact of snare which is essential in dubstep.

All in all you've done a goof job on the wobble bass but the track seems to be a little unstructured and the beat a little weak. But a first track is a first track and I'm sure you'll have made vast improvements by the time you finish your next one.

Good job, and welcome to dubstep ;)

Thanks for the review. Yeah this is my first attempt at anything close to dubstep. The first time I heard any I was trippin face and just fell in love with the bass.

But I'd like you to explain a little more what you mean by the track bein unstructured and the beat a little weak. I know the beat is a little minimal for the genre if that's what you mean.

Also, how was the mixing? Depending on what sound system I use the bass seems to be too loud sometimes and it distorts other sounds but on other systems it sounds like candy.

If you don't mind giving me a little more insight on dubstep I'd greatly appreciate it.


I think it's a little too incoherent in its execution, mostly due to a really annoying bass kick. I think you should have made it a little less "trance" too, because the beat and bass does not go well with the ambient undertones that try to sound through the pounding bass wall.

At around 1:30 the song does pick up a little, changing the bass kick to a muffled, regular trance kick, but soon enough it changes back to that bo-bo-bo-boom sound.

I'm not too sure what you're trying to say about it being incoherent in its execution... but the bass kick is a little whack I suppose. Funny thing is I never change the kick. If anything the lfo bass overpowered the tone of the kick and muffled it. Thanks for the review though.
