You have a really strong near - 5 rating for a reason. I have a some what limited listening of dubstep recently. I'm very familiar with the genre, but it has fallen out of my favor due to the lack of diversity I found out there in the main stream channels: Signed artists, youtube artists, and even some newgrounds artists. I noted mostly the same grime and saw set up of a song and lost interest. The music sounded great, just not unique.
Then I stumbled upon this song! (Well, it was in my feed.) This gives me a clean, relaxing , and unique take on the dubstep genre. First off I want to say, everything sounds very squeaky clean mixed. Now, despite dub and regge being similar at the core to dub step, I was pretty hard pressed to find a song that matched this kind of song. Bass is deep while keeping the buzz to a minimum, the introduction chords had a laid back reggae feel, and the pop-y 8-bit synth sounded "happy" inspiring. Lets not forget the warm pads heating up the air in the background! This song almost did an about face on the typical dub-step song and went for a happy, relaxed, "good mood" sort of feel . I'll admit, I don't have high hopes or expectations of finding music I'll like in the dubstep channel of the audio portal, but I can say with much satisfaction:
I loved this song. Please, finish it!
Thanks for that awesome review sonic! I honestly feel the same way about dubstep nowadays thats why I tried taking a stab at it. I'm almost done with the song, just one more day!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
