Okay, so this is a little track I made for y'all for Halloween. It's my first dubstep submission ever, and I just very recently started listening to the stuff, but I can dig it because it's sick. This is going in d&b cuz I tried to add some sick bass stuff, but seeing as I made this on my laptop, I can't really tell if it's mastered well or not. (EDIT: Since there's actually a dubstep section now, it's going here... =P) Oh well; it sounds great through my bass-biased headphones, though! ;)

Just a quick rundown of where the sound clips come from, in case you're interested/concerned that my stuff isn't legit:
1.) The howling/demonic voice in the background, with the rain -- as used in my "Revenge: Preview" song, these sound clips come from Warcraft III and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
2.) The Blair Witch sound clip -- This obviously comes from The Blair Witch, near the beginning of the movie. I was inspired to insert this clip in here because of the movie Paranormal Activity, which has caused quite a hubbub recently and is similar in production to the Blair Witch Project (whether you liked it or not is up to you =P).
3.) The evil laughing sound -- Used twice; first, after the Blair Witch clip, and second, at the end. This comes from Jigsaw in Saw II. I threw it in there cuz it sounds creepy as hell.
4.) The screaming in the breakdown at the end -- Comes from free-loops.com. Just a free sample that I found online, thought it would boost the atmosphere (but if it kills your eardrums, please let me know...)

With that said, I hope you enjoy it. Please Please Please Please PLEASE leave me a review if you'd be so kind, even if you hated it, so that I can improve with my later works.

Happy Halloween! Scare the hell outta everyone you see! ;)

Wow! I'm impressed! Your music is truly different from any other that I have listened to, which is exactly what I want to hear~

I'm not a music producer (I can't get a grasp over it like you (the musical production crowd) guys can.) But.. if there's one thing I can do... I can spot talent. Most of the people I try to display dubstep to are so in tune with pop and rap that it's just about hopeless... So I don't exactly have a crowd to back up that opinion ^.^;... Either way. It's self confidence that matters most, right? Ahahah~

I see talent in this piece, thus I see talent in you, Jazzman. Don't stop believing in yourself, and make haunting music for all to hear!~

Very skillfull done! The drum pattern was spot on, the bass sounds pretty decent, the songs progression is nice, all pretty cool stuff! You could have made this track a lot more evil using some crazy off sounding melodies and altering some pitch here and there, would have nicely worked for a halloweeny track. Good stuff man, keep it up! I'm liking your sound! :)

Dude, lol thanks for reviewing my first attempt ever at dubstep. Now that I look back, this song didn't even technically have a drop...well okay, maybe it had one, ish, at like 1:22, but nothing beyond that lol. This was before I realized that distortion does the world wonders, and that dubstep drums don't have to repeat! Haha, I think I might redo this one around Halloween, just for the fun of it, because I know exactly how I'd want it to sound now! Oh yes, and I'm glad you like this dark and metallish approach to dubstep! Same to you too man, you've got a pretty cool approach to the genre too.

Funny thing dubstep. I just started listening to it too and decided to do a track as well. One thing that going to such a slow BPM does to people is makes their beats more simplistic and slow, and this effect seems to have gotten to you a little. I think the percussion, excluding the snare, was a little too much in the back of the mix, and could use some more variation or complexity/originality.

You definitely have the style of dubstep right, but the structure is a bit off. Most tracks have really similar structure to DnB tracks. The standard is near as such:

The Introduction - thirty seconds to two minutes with no bassline or hard hitting drums mostly

The drop - bring in that reese and the main percs and keep it going for a minute or two steady. Variation is fine but keeping the beat for dancing

The dowhateveryouwant - after that it's pretty much up to you on how to do breakdowns/bridges to second themes/outros/etc...

But then again not everyone goes for industry standard structure music, especially here on newgrounds, so I don't hold anything against ya for it. I'm just advising. Overall its a solid track and I've added you to my being watched list (the not creepy musician kind of list haha) so I can look into you further.

Cheers!

mr-jazzman responds:

Thank you man, you have definitely helped me. Yeah, I tend to stay away from the typical structure because it's...well...typical, and the only way to make any noise on NG is to be different. As for the quality of the percussion, etc., it was unavoidable because I produced this on my laptop - not exactly the best method for mastering lol. And then my desktop speakers are all sorts of funky, so I'm probably gonna have to find some new speakers. I personally love thumping, balls-to-the-wall drums for this kinda stuff, which I tried to do, but hey, it sounds totally different through everyone's set of speakers. With that said, thanks again for the input, and I'll most def keep you on my watch list as well!
