I know when someone hears the words "Dubstep" they think of Auto Bots, Metal sounds and growls with drops so filthy and deep, china can feel the effects, but since I'm not at that stage yet to create such a complex sound, I'm creating a more relax, Symphonic approach to Dub (not saying Dubstep is non symphonic). I only have one drop, and one use of Wobble that lasts for a good 30sec but the song isn't long at all so it makes up for it. I kind of like what I came up with, It's a small but refreshing break from what you normally hear in mainstream dub. Hmm.. I used all virtual Instruments, I think there is only Violin, a Staccato sound, drums( very simple), piano, bass, and an LFO. Well I guess that's it. All original and no samples. Enjoy!

Cool, but the dubstep LFO wah wah, ruins it.

In my humble opinion, dubstep is really butchering the electric dance community lately.

I'd say get rid of the LFO, get a better piano sample (it sucks), and you have yourself a great song. Just hope that Nino Rota's family doesn't sue you for using the Godfather theme as your groove!

lol. Butchering? If you really heart electric dance then you'd respect Dub step. You should be proud Electric dance, house, trance, hardcore, or whatever types of techno you listen to are even heard on today's radio, and are branching out like it is today. This is a sub genre of techno, and as far as I can see it, Dub step is not even harming what you listen to, matter of fact it uses a lot of samples from a load of other techno songs, so in turn promotes. Samples samples samples samples. Rap/ Hiphop also uses nothing but this. It would be rare that you would even hear an original beat without having some sort of inspiration from previous songs/genres of music created from the past. haha Piano sample sucks? I created that piano sound if you would read the description, no samples used. Get rid of the LFO? That's where the wobble comes from that would even classify this as Dub step. Getting sued for using Godfather theme? Tell that to the other gazillion badazzilillion others who remix it. Kid, everyone is inspired by something, and it just happens that my pizzicato Violin plucking sound, sounds like the godfather theme. If you want my opinion your review sucked, and you should be more open minded and have constructive criticism when reviewing other original works instead of trying to bash the author. :) thanks for the review and hope to see you in the future. -CTKxShadowxXLT
