A clip from our new tune.




Well I like how smooth this one is and it gives a feel of being sent to sleep somewhere while others watch you crawl into your own bed and simply begin to relax as well giving a feel of them wanting more from you in the future even as you do not know them yet sadly. Very nice dub beat.

The dub sounds start out smooth and nice. The piano is cheery and very calm here. I like the bell sounds added as it gives a angelic feel and a feel that everything will be alright for you in the near future. The drums are soft and play a great beat too I think making it all that much better too.

Overall, very nice clip I think.

:3 Such kind words. Thank you SCTE3.

sick drop :]

I really enjoyed the dub-bass work in this song bro, very nicely done. The drums are simple, but still clean; I really liked how they have that almost hip-hop sound to them. The lead melody sounds alright, but the piano seemed to sound a bit dry imo. The drop in this song really made up for my major dislikes though :p

Things to take a second look at:
- The lead melody seemed a bit repetitive, and I really did NOT like the lead @ 0:27-0:40
- The piano sample in this really seemed to be a bit much. maybe it could use some reverb/ eq work?

Overall not a bad piece, but I definitely would have done a couple things differently x.x
Great work though :D

Thanks for the review XsakuX. I'll add a bit more character to my sounds and maybe scramble up my composition to make it feel a bit more alive.


there needs to be more dub like this, im getting sick of the usual trash.
its really repetative and gets irritating fast tho..

LightsideandLegend responds:

I'm working on the repetitive part. Thanks for the review!

Will make the top Dub of the week.

This song is the definition of dubstep, I thought the meaning of dubstep had been lost forever, My god you may have saved dubstep itself.

Taking this genre back one tune at a time.


Love the drop, reminds me of some Excision with your own twist on it. It's appropriately named, the beat just projects me into a dark room. The beginning, you can see a little boy/girl laying in bed, then when the synth starts, the Sandman vaporizes in from the shadows and approaches the bed.. Then BOOM.

LightsideandLegend responds:

Haha, that's exactly what I was trying to do with this tune, paint a fucked up image in your head with the resonating bells and dark atmosphere I made with this track. I'm fucking ecstatic to know that it actually worked. Thank you so much for your review man. <3
