Well i am still a begginer in these kind of songs but i had to give it a try, i have nothing to lose and Madness is such a tradition in NG that i wanted to be a part of it.
I do not usually make dubstep (does this even qualify as Dubstep??) but madness day songs ask for the aggressiveness that only Dubstep and its dirty leads can provide.
It took me about 5 days to make and a lot more to get the mood and the Synths i wanted.
Made with Reaper and my Midi Keyboard.
I got 4th Place in Madness Day 2012!!

Cheers deathschild!

This is quite a refreshing departure from many of the cookie-cutter dubstep stuff on here... maybe because it really doesn't sound that dubsteppy.

I feel that the song stopped developing and plateaued after the first minute, and it got somewhat repetitive towards the end. I think you could throw in some powerful kicks at certain sections, maybe some glitchy effects, and go all out crazy (which would nudge you closer to the "mainstream" dubstep here). You could also consider giving that choir a lead melody and make it carry a longer section.

Oh, and at 1:07 there is this hilarious percussion instrument that comes in that sounds kinda like banging pots and pans... is it a traditional instrument or it's an effect you came up with on your own?

Overall... great ideas. Can be further developed.

Thanks a lot for the constructive review gadogry!
Well i have very VERY little experience with dubstep or any dance genre so this was the result of multiple attempts to make it sound something near dubstep, i tried to do what i could to approach a bit of madness but still retaining my personal style and that's why it doesn't have the total dubstep sound.
At 1:07 the "banging pots and pans" (i laughed a lot when i read this xD) are the result of me messing around with Addictive Drums until something i liked was achieved.
Although i loved the choirs i thought that over using them would escape the Dubstep sound too much so i didn't gave them more to play..wrong decision maybe :/

WOW man...the name of the song says everything

DivoFST responds:

Thanks for the 5 stars!

I like this :D

If anything though, you should make the big parts be louder and have more things playing at the same time...


DivoFST responds:

Dubstep where louder is better!! xD
Thanks a lot for the comment!!

I'm sorry, but for me it sounds like alot of tracks/loops (whatever you call it xD ) is just smashed together, i can't really find the rhytm in this track, im not some music artist or whatever but im just giving you my opinion, theres just to much noise to hear the rhytm and the actual "Music" im not the best in english, so i have a littel hard time expressing myself correctley, but i hope you catch my meaning. best of luck!

DivoFST responds:

Thanks for the comment karill!
Well i get the comment but its Dubstep and Dubstep is kind of that, loud sounds crashing together guess xD, you probably are not into dubstep.
No loops were used i played them with my Midi Keyboard.
PS: Your english is completly understandable buddy! :D
