how much did you actually do? if all you didnt was combine them into a mix, you should probably get DjBjra in as a co-author

Good idea :)

For a long time I've been looking for some kind of a mix of Marching band music and Dubstep, just to see if it could be cool. That first song is as close as I can imagine it could be and it was super filthy. The rest of the mix is awesome too. Very unique original sounds, hard to find anymore.


MessanyRecordings responds:

Thanks mate.
I'll try to find more talents like this and support them with a mix :)

From around 6:00 to 6:40 and again at 8:20 to 8:58 and once more at about 10:00 till the end, it sounded like you went into an old late 80's early 90's SNES game theme, thus the whole space synthe( short for "synthesizer" for you unknowing reading) sort of feel. It's not easy finding stuff like that anymore, I'll tell you that much. I at least loved those parts.

Other then that I think (my opinion only) that there are to many mixed up themes in here, that might actually sound better in separate songs of their own. There are a lot of portions in this one song that could make great individual game songs.


MessanyRecordings responds:

Yeah a lot of awesome music from the 90's is hard to find these days.
It remembers me of early childhood, all the 8bit soundtracks in the game boy or the first games for a pc etc mixed with modern stuff.

Holy fucking dubstep Batman!

As concise as a review as possible (Need to deal with this boner this track gave me)...

PROS:
-EXCELLENT... And I fucking mean EXCELLENT diversity. Your approach is similar to Skrillex / Haywyre, in the sense that no track should be ONLY a series of flaccid wub rolls and grime specks.
-Your actual wub rolls and mod synth. Fucking stellar. Very pro.
-Your use of voices (especially what you did at ~11:10 or so). You incorporate them at the most perfect moments.
-Actual musical layout is well-thought out and never has a dull moment (which is a common downfall of most half-hearted attempts at dubstep)

CONS:
-While most of your samples/synths are of an excellent choice (and maintain a pristine counter-balance between each other), there are some that would be best replaced (first portion of this promo for example).
-While most of your pieces' architecture is well-thought out, I've observed that there are moments where your tracks do lack that certain hint of objective or climactic evolution from progression. This does not mean that tracks must always be dynamic, but this is generally what is expected of artists that go pro. Look at Pendulum - Set me on fire... If you are to really break apart the track, what do you see? (hear?) - Most commonly a several patterns that have an inter-changing nature with adequate transitions and general objective. This is something I find in great dubstep artists (and trance, etc) which actually stems from Jazz. Most commonly Jazz has a basic outline with some objectives and an array of elements. You'll generally stumble across an intro, topic, body telling the tale in music and outro/climax. These do not have to be in order and not all elements have to be present but they are generally found (and with reason). Trance is the nearest genre to display this approach (classical too, but since we're dipping into electronica here, may as well stay on topic). Good dubstep does as well. Look at Skrillex - First of the year, Cinema. Both tracks are excellent demonstrations that exhibit all these elements.

Glad I didn't take my eyes (ears?) off you for long. I see (hear? Goddamit...) greatness in you lad. Spitshine that talent and I can easily see you becoming one of the greats.

MessanyRecordings responds:

Wow, that was a detailed review now.
I have to be fair though.
As a DJ I can't do much with the songs.
I can increase the low, mid, high range, I can make it more minimal with an equalizer, I can repeat a part of the song, I can let 2 tracks play together for a while or I can add some effects etc, but I can't replace the hihats, put more reverb on the vocals etc. since those things are up to the producer(s) of the songs.
In this case it is DJBjra.
