Random Music Info:
I'm catching on to a few dubstep artists minimizing with their bass drops. They'll leave you with one heavy bass sound and maybe a deep bass sound and will just fluctuate the pitch of the main bass sound to add complexity. It's a concept that made Flux Pavilion's Starlight sound so good, and one that, if done right, could really help the genre take a turn in the right direction. Another example of this is Jah No Partial by Major Lazer & Flux Pavilion. The drop is so simple, yet the song is an absolute banger! You don't have to make a medley of bass noise to have a dubstep drop, you just have to find a heavy bass sound that'll still sound good if you screw with it, and play other sounds that sound good with it at the same time.
What I'm Thinking. . .
Cool thing about music is that it isn't like politics - if you create a sound that people can enjoy, it can grow and expand and speak to people regardless of whether it's what they normally like to hear. You're never stuck to a single style of music, like being democrat or republican and having to maintain such ideals consistently. Do what YOU want to do, but do it well. Be creative and promote independent artists.
I'm 17, I love music, I'm obsessed with BASS (percussion, guitar, synth - you name it), and I like to challenge myself. Two years before adulthood isn't much, but dreams aren't made reality because time permitted them so, they are made reality because of the dedication and ambition behind their followers. None of my music is on here yet BUT! I promise you I'll upload some of my music in the near future, mostly demos at first to give you guys an idea of the kind of music I'll be producing. I'm going to work my way up from straight moombah beats and r&b beats to some deep bass experimental music. From there I'll go wherever my heart takes me, whether it be R&B, moombah, post-rock, or dubstep/electro influenced. No matter what it's going to be my own thing, and that's what matters. I'm trying to save up for a really good laptop which I'll buy and download some advanced music production programs for. Currently I'm using Animoog, Audiotool, and Music Maker 2013, but I use other random music creation/production applications as well, which I've scattered across the 60GB of my iPad memory I've used up. I'm also studying different elements of good electronic music and producing good electronic music so I can have a concept of what exactly I'm trying to do, as well as what I'm trying to encourage. Eventually I'll add a link to a webpage I'm making on the concept that defines good electronic bass music, based not just on my own opinions but on that of those who do and don't listen to electronic music. If you have any questions or SUGGESTIONS feel free to leave me a message, and if you're following me I'll try to make time to check you out and hopefully lend you some advice privately or praise publicly on your music. Other than that stay awesome and anticipate crazy awesome things. Like random flash mob dance parties, FTW!!
