Re: [Dubstep Beat Tape Thread]

If I get it, the idea is to do what kinda Skream and Benga did.
Take the good old Dubstep like Leofah or Burial and take it to another level, but differently than they did.
Am I getting this right ?

Re: [Dubstep Beat Tape Thread]

^Yea...my original idea was to do a tape that took old school elements of dark garage and early dubstep and tried to do something new with them. Like rewind things and try to take it in a different direction then where we ended up going? If that makes sense.

Tree suggested doing an "all the flavors" of dubstep tape, which is an idea to consider too.

Re: [Dubstep Beat Tape Thread]

^ Ok, would be great to "rewind" like you said. It's real Original.
I find that the "all the flavors" isn't good enough, and it's gonna be pretty complicated with the submissions.

Cool. Thanks ...and yea...I can see things getting complicated. Also, it may end up being hard to get a balance of tracks because what ever the sound is that's "in" will certainly dominate submissions. Then we'd have to create additional guidelines to help balance things.

I was hoping to keep things simple and somewhat strict guideline wise to make things easier the first go around.

Re: [Dubstep Beat Tape Thread]

i was also thinking of a possible problem. let's say you are trying to score a bunch of legit tracks for all these different subgenres of dubstep that lead up to what it is today and there is only ONE submission for a certain genre but it sucks. it'll poke a hole in the concept.. just something to consider.

Re: [Dubstep Beat Tape Thread]

well like you said previously, everyone should make more than one track just incase. i know benwaa strictly said one track for the open comp thing but this is a different idea and to ensure a proper release it shouldn't be an issue.

make more than one tracks people!

Re: [Dubstep Beat Tape Thread]

thats probably for the best then if we stick to one kind of dubstep, i took a look at the other tape threads and a few are going pretty specific in the kind of sound. when i look at the other threads regarding soundcloud, and music eps and ect in general, its just best to focus on one type of sound.
(production wise and publicity wise)

so i kinda honestly dont know where exactly to start now, but i DO know it means my track i did will be pointless now, so might have to save it up for next tape or send it to listening booth or whatever.

but whatever happens, im down for the brown, i hate just coasting when making music, having no direction, makes you get stale on yourself.

Re: [Dubstep Beat Tape Thread]

maybe each person can mesh a bunch of dubstep styles into each track? dunno how that would work and maybe it won't.. just throwing it out there just to keep the bass anthropology name haha

Re: [Dubstep Beat Tape Thread]

Sorry I bailed over the weekend everyone. Hope we didn't loose steam on this. I think it's a good idea to stick to a certain sound/vibe for the reasons listed above.

How does everyone feel about working with the idea of going back and experimenting with old school sounds? Try to take those into new places?

Otherwise I say we settle on a "sound" that is current and not terribly rinsed. Also, please feel free to post links to songs that explain the sounds you are talking about, whatever we are discussing.

Re: [Dubstep Beat Tape Thread]

@FMB: feel like trying your hand at some dubstep? Come on...come over to the dark side...and appreciate the thumbs up for my idea ;p Feel free to dip your balls in our thread any time.

@BF: I quite like both those tunes. Some very DnB-ish stuff going on. The second one is really dark and glitchy/stuttery could def go for some stuff like that ...I'm pretty much open to any suggestion. ...even though I'm the leader for the dubstep tape I'd like to be as democratic as I can at least about deciding on a vibe for the tape.

Typically I find "harder" more energetic tunes hard to write, so I'd love the challenge.

I was thinking of doing something in this style, the Old School stuff mixed to the more modern sounds :

Re: [Dubstep Beat Tape Thread]

valid point etf, but, if we do that, is it retaining more old school then new? or Vice versa. might be a good idea to figure out what the general ideas to this would be.

such as,
new influences:
glitching influences?(what almost every dubstep song has nowadays)
electro influenced synths?(electro sounds, raw saw synths ect.)
aggression?(how energetic the song will be.)

old influences:
minimal?(or rather how busy can our song be.)
mainly wobble synths?
mostly subbass bass synths?
simplistic melodies?
chilled feeling?(how calm the song is.)

just some things to consider, now im sure im missing some obvious stuff, but thats the general idea.
