Iron God: Sakupen Hell Yes RMX

Download this song!

Author Comments

This is a warning: This song is not intended for the impatient listener! I designed this song around Sakupen's epic masterpiece music video (and winner of Robot Day 2010), "Titanomachina," so the progression is exactly in the same vein. The song was made to perfectly synchronize with the motions of the video...and it does. So, if this song seems to take "forever" to catch your attention, this is why, and there is nothing I can really do nor say to sway you. (I'm not apologizing, because the song accomplishes its task perfectly! >=D) I should also note that this is a remix of the song that Sakupen made for "Titanomachina" ("Hell Yes"), so I encourage you to listen to the original as well.

To my knowledge, this is one of the only drumstep songs on Newgrounds. While I was very nervous about putting this one up for free download (I'm trying to break out of the free music scene and finally start producing an album for those who are interested), I finally caved in and decided to allow it. I hope y'all enjoy! =D If you have any suggestions, just lemme know. Right now I'm working on getting that compression right, so if there's some incongruency in the sound, I will take your word into consideration.

In the mean time, enjoy one of my latest tracks!



EDIT: I TOTALLY forgot...please listen to this along WITH Sakupen's music video! The progression of the song only makes more sense if you do this! =D


To be completely honest,

I thought you had this remix contest in the bag. Your mix was the most professional sounding, and it got front-paged. Not to mention it sounds fucking incredible in the headphones.
The only thing I don't really like about it is the style - and I kind of have this prejudice about dubstep in general (dubstep, drumstep, what have you). It doesn't really go anywhere up until where the robot noises come in (sounds like a robot saying "yaaaaa yayayy yayayayayaya"). There are a lot of moving parts in the sense that they're being panned all over the place, but other than that most of the parts are really repetitive and basic. Whenever I remix something, I like to complicate it with many moving parts and harmonize with the melody (many of the same tendencies that I have as a bassist). I feel like most dubstep in general ends up leaning towards a sound that is stagnant but catchy - a sound that I find very unmusical. To put it simply, I just think you could have done more with it.
The level of professionalism in this track, however, is unmatched. The drums sound brilliant, and I love what you've done with the reverb. Seriously, I would love to have drum samples that sounded that good. You should let me know what you're using - it might give me something to put some of that contest money towards ;]

Well, besides the level of professionalism, etc., our opinions differ when it comes to dubstep, and perhaps music in general.

Let me explain to you specifically what I was aiming to do: My song was not meant to be artistic in its own right; it was supposed to directly compliment the action that occurred in Sakupen's video. Its stagnancy in the beginning was rooted as an introduction sequence; if you had found a way to align this with the video, you would see what I mean. Complication in this way would have only harmed the intention.

And while we're on the subject of complication: I used to feel the exact same way with music. I was a complete metalhead for many years, and I believed that the most beautiful music could only come making songs so rhythmically and harmonically complicated that you would melt in ecstasy (just check some of my older works for examples of this...like from 2007 =P). While I still appreciate complexity in a song (hell, I am a guitarist after all), my tastes have evolved. I've found that it perhaps takes more to create something meaningful from a base - that is, that you create a motif with a minimum. Literally every single sound you hear in this song had a reason and place for existing where it did. Certainly you FELT something from this song - perhaps something sinister, epic, what have you. The meaning of the song was the point, not how much stuff I could add to it to make it sound complicated and showy.

So, to counteract your opinion, perhaps there was more I could have done with the song, but this would have completely ruined its intentions. I am a little bit upset that Sakupen didn't see the intentions of this song, but there's nothing I can do about it now (and this is not to say you don't deserve it any less; you're an excellent producer in your own right, so don't get me wrong).

Thank you, however, for your review. Knowing that my production skills have increased greatly is a feat within itself.



around the two minute part, that call-and answer part...it just really makes it pop , and adds some varitity into an somewhat repitive peice, but it's still awesome, so you still get a ten....by the way, what setting did you use for your reverb?

Thanks man, glad you liked it! =D Well...I honestly can't remember the reverb setting, I'll have to get back to you on that.

Good job once again Mr Jazzman

Haven't commented on your stuff in a while, but this is pretty awesome as usual.
