This started out as a small test project to try out some cool percussion samples I got a few weeks ago but haven't really used much up until now. The percussive rhythm I made sounded somewhat oriental to me, so I decided to add some more instruments of that nature (shakuhachi, koto etc.).

I decided to mess around with some electronic elements part way through like adding filter effects to the natural instruments and glitch effects to the percussion slightly and before I knew it I had some kind of Samurai Robot boss battle song :D.

I'm pretty proud of this, especially since I've been having a hard time finding the motivation to make stuff Dx but anyhow, Enjoy!

Lol that start with the 'YAHOOOOO' sample xD Isn't that from sp4zie on youtube with his Yasuo vid or something else? Also well done dutty dude. I do not regret clicking on this link :O ... 1:21 is really epic D: Oriental dubstep lol. Funny combination. I'm liking these instruments combined with heavy and wobbing basses haha. I only recommend a low bass, especially for this type of music. But overall well done dutsky. :D Very well done!!

Thanks! haha possibly! it's a very common old kabuki theatre sound sample that's used in tonnes of Japanese themed songs. I couldn't resist the urge to use it since the timing seemed perfect xP.

Considering that this is... the COMPLETE OPPOSITE of what you normally do, this is PHENOMENAL!!! Seriously, how the hell did you manage to fit wubs and Japanese/Asian instruments and make it sound GOOD?! From my experience with Japanese pieces in general, I know for a FACT that those shouldn't go together. BUT YOU MADE THEM GO TOGETHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AWESOME!!!!

Hey thanks man! :D I'm glad you enjoyed it.

A lot of oriental instruments are really.. "twangy" and dominate the high-end so it wasn't hard to mix it with some dubstep basses which covers the low-end of the song :]

Anything can be mixed together if you do it right though!

Wow. though you are in a completely different genre than us, you are doing something that has grown to be part of our style. You have taken a genre (dub) and added something very foreign to the mix being the Far-East (for our band Charm the Animal, we have taken rock and added a Middle-Eastern flare). I really like that. Also, it sounds like this piece was mixed quite week. Keep up the nice work,

Hey thanks for the comment!

Yeah, I tend to do that. I get pretty bored when just attempting a single genre so I always try to "genre-mash" and just mix things in there to attempt something new each time. Like mixing metal and classical or chiptune and orchestral etc. It's fun to mix hings up!
