This, as you can already tell at the top, is a collab between FGKOfficial and I (JordanKyser). As usual for these two doing a collab, I did the original melody and FGKOfficial did another attempt at doing his drops. Although it is not perfect, it is FGKOfficial's best so far at a drop attempt. FGKOfficial also did the subbass, and I tweaked it and combined it with a rise.


I liked how it was retro-style and sorta jumpy. The drops were great, but did not match the rest of the song in my opinion. I hope you and FGK can improve, and continue to keep up the good work! :)

Ugh. This is just... where do I even start?
First and foremost, there’s next to no attempt at any form of arrangement. No apparent rhyme or reason to the progression of the song overall.
And I could ignore it if there was any attempt at original sounds or sound design. There wasn’t. Nor was the sound even fitting for a “dubstep” song. It could possibly be techno, but that would still be a stretch.
Lastly, the “drop...”
About that. What entitles that to even be a drop? No tension was built and none was released. It served no purpose to the song itself.
You need to work long and hard, and if a track takes you fifty hours to make-- furthermore, when it ends up like this, you’re doing something wrong. Either start simpler or get better gear.

JordanKyser responds:

First: I agree with you when you said that this song is a techno rather than a dubstep. I edited it to where it says techno instead of dubstep.

Second: FGKOfficial is a mere rookie at dubstep, yet he works mostly on related works or house music. This song was rather some random collab we made together (50 hours in 9 days will definitely tell you that there will be a lot of rushed parts). I have no room to talk as well as I myself am also a rookie (more advanced, but still a rookie), but I do remixes just fine.

Third: Speaking of 50 hours in 9 days, when you do work in that time and span, you tend to space out sometimes while tweaking on some channels. As you can tell on the first drop, when the phrase repeats the first time, you start hearing a very loud buzzing until the melody returns, but then the buzzing returns at the beginning of the second drop.

Fourth: The meaning of a "drop" is loosely defined. The first drop, as you said, had no tension and nothing was released, but the second drop had some tension built, but the end of the build-up can be quite annoying due to the extremely high pitch rise.

Fifth: The second instrument that came in the beginning was an original instrument (it is called "Shards"). 70% of the instruments overall was original (All 4 drop instruments were original, Shards was original, the subbase+rise was original).
