After listening to Etzer's new track "Apex" I knew I had to give swing dubstep a shot lol. Right now I'm trying to branch to as many different sub genres as I can manage, so that's two down I suppose. I'm still a little bit inept, so if you have any gripes lay them on me, I can fix them.

I'm not going to lie, I don't have much to say about this one. Is this a version or a rendition of an already created song? It sounded oddly familiar and I can't quite put my finger on it. Overall though I really actually enjoyed it.

It almost seemed random at times, but everything went so well together. I really loved the upbeat feeling of it and other than sounding a little familiar to a song it was really entertaining and original in my opinion.

Wish I had more to say about it, but good job. I like it a bunch more than the last submission of yours that I reviewed.

A happy tune I'm well familiar with. What will you bring to the table??? ... Nice! Is this Complextro? I love complextro... Very upbeat and happy! Something fun to bounce to. ;]

Hmm, I'm not familiar with this "complextro"... glad you like it though.

Very rythmic, very melodical, very experimental though, never heard any dubstep tune like this. I like it. I think Dubstep's your thing. I like this one better than the other tune, though the other one's good aswell. I personally would say, work with the bass like a drumkit in Metal. Make it hard when it's loud and make it soft when it's quiet/soft. After all I somehow missed something in this tune. I dunno what it was, probably something like a climax which almost every tune has that I know. I mean as far as I know, dubstep builds up to a climax point where everything gets dropped as hard as possible. A.K.A. Skrillex dropping a big pile of doo doo if you know what I mean ;D

However, try to experiment with some more genres and find out if there's something that you're maybe much much better in. I mean you're rn a better musician than most people I review, cos mostly I'm here to help ppl get the basics or advanced things. You, my friend, probably have the stuff either in your blood or already know that basic and avdvanced stuff and now need to either find your personal top genre or work in the genre you like and learn the details for that.

But it won't hurt learning the basics of the details from other genres. ;) Maybe it helps creating something completely new, just imagine the possibilites.

Anyway, keep doing what you do and you will improve :) As said, you're on the right side of the road.

Thanks for all the advice man. As a matter of fact, I've made it a personal goal to tackle as many different sub genres as I can. My next target is drum and bass, and it's about 80% done right now. Will probably finish sometime this week.

Well I like it. Especially the progression of the lead.
I would love to see a Hardstyle remix of this track.
Anyways, would you mind if I posted this one on Youtube?

Dodecagon34 responds:

Put it in your video you mean? Absolutely man, would love my songs to be used in other people's stuff. As long as credit is given of course.

I've listened to it 3 times and believe I'm ready to critique. I like the unique presets I hadn't heard anywhere else. I also like the swing and memorable time signatures this track has, but honestly doesn't feel up to much. Maybe next time try implementing pads in the verses to give it more flow and mastering a bit more to bring out more bass in the drops. Next time, please use a different uplifter! The beginning of it sounds like the track is full of latency. I don't believe you have a problem with repetition. Good use of automation clips and variation of sounds throughout the track. This is something I fall prey to in my own tracks sadly so nicely done. Overall, good job. 6.5/10 :)
