Your support is appreciated immensely!

How's 94 BPM, for ya?

How appropriate that this is also from "Music For Angry Assholes Like Me", as I went through a good bit of frustration to complete it. GMS vst is load of horse crock, as you can't export with the built-in LFO modulator intact. It forced me to use resampling for the first time.

Anyway, it all started last night with a beat that appeared in my head as I was walking home. I translated it as soon as I got home, and created this beastly wonder that shatters my record for "longest dubstep" by a whole minute.

I'm posting a few comments on some of the NGADM auditions that particularly stuck out to me, and this is one of them!

Well, this is certainly something! Oddly enough, this stuck out to me for one main thing: it's freaking enormous. I don't mean the length of the track or its filesize, but more of a metaphorical enormous. The mix just gives off such a huge sense of largeness. It's wide and spacious, goes on for a full 7 minutes, has a lumbering, slow tempo, is doused with cathedral-tier reverb at parts like 1:22, has aggressive synths and contains a very punchy and bassy kick drum to top it all off. For that characteristic alone, this track remained in my memory even after listening to 200-odd tracks.

I'm not just here to tell you your track sounds big, though. Other great aspects of this track include your great transitions, catchy melodic work and solid production value. My only gripe with this track is a fairly major one. This has repetition issues. In a way I can forgive you for it due to how fun it is to listen to and due to your pretty vast array of synth layers, but the fact that this is essentially has one melody at the forefront that's tirelessly repeated still irks me. I mean, perhaps relying on that one melody up until 3:05 can be somewhat acceptable, but by 3:05 I was desperately in need of an alternate melody to spice things up. On a lesser note, the choir that you introduce at the end has a harsh, unpleasant, resonant tone to it.

That's pretty much all I have to say about this track. It's a BEAST of a track, and I'm super relieved you made it in this year despite missing out last year. This year's competition has a much harsher first round, since you need to make the cut from a group of 4 rather than a pairing of 2, so I wish you the best of luck and no matter how far you go, consider me a fan!

Reali-tGlitch responds:

Thank you very much for the criticisms! I don't recall not entering, last year. I just know this is the first time making it through the first round. I know I won't be making it through the second with my submission for said round, but it was fun, regardless.

I also wish that I could change my name on Newgrounds, since in 2009 I adopted the name 'Reali-tGlitch'. It would actually get some publicity for my bandcamp page XD

This piece is one of the ones I am most proud of, though, and people like you only back up that claim.

epic tune yo! very nice, love how the background pad brings depth after the 2:23 drop.
you should make more dubstep bruv :3

Reali-tGlitch responds:

I try, but my expertise (after continuing work on my present album-in-progress, Music For Angry Assholes Like Me) seems to lie in industrial genres like Electro-Industrial, Futurepop, and darksynth.

Oh wow, 1:22 caught me off guard. Fantastic song, great progression, great production.

Reali-tGlitch responds:


It is definitely one of my top 5 tracks.

I don't know if I've ever listened to a song on here all the way through....this is literally the first song I really enjoyed the intro to! Absolutely brilliant start to finish! Love it!

Reali-tGlitch responds:

Always great to hear that my work was enjoyed :)

Amazing, I guess you have mastered the beat of Dubstep my friend. Just a little bit of too much Wub Wave, but that can be easily ignored, 5 stars *clapping*.

Reali-tGlitch responds:

Thanks much. Didn't think I had done too well.
