My first attempt at mixing orchestra and dubstep

This is this shit, my friend.

For your first attempt this is amazing. I hope you do more of this.

You blended the orchestral and dubstep sounds together rather well. The atmosphere feels connected, consistent, and well defined. The piece begins building very beautifully at the end, drawing the listener in, magnifying the power of the surprise movement. I have to say the trick is clever and cool, and in my first time listen a really neat feature. But I am not likely to add this track to a playlist because the surprise is like a knock in the head, making me forget what I was doing and go "wait, what?" every time I hear it. Now I really want to hear where the orchestral build "was going". Grin.

It had an organic vs. machine feel to it, really digging the track. Got me moving, then the introspective orchestral bit kicked in. I followed the build up and... I imagine that the glitch intro would have been amazing in a live setting, but as a track, it felt a little lopsided. As two separate things, flawless. Combined, very, very good.

I found the orchestral music very nice. However, I do think that the dubstep side is a tad too grainy and metallic in some areas. Overall it was a nice track!

I quite enjoyed this track. If I had voted without hearing the ending, I would have given 5 stars, no question. That said, I found the ending quite out of place in the song, which was otherwise a perfect mix of dramatic and aggressive (two very vague descriptions, I know). I sincerely hope that at some point you consider making a remix without the "gimmick" (as others have described it); I feel that the song would be far better without it. Either way, keep it up with this genre!
