Collaborators wanted for charitable dubstep project- See bottom of profile
Founder of DubNation.net
As a dubstep producer, I tend to aim for tracks that are somewhere between hard and gritty. What I usually end up with, however, is something between gritty and chilled out. Dubstep is not for everyone, and my personal flavor of dubstep is for even fewer people. Music is not my career, but rather, a passionate hobby. I know I will never be famous, and I do not care. I do this for me. I am my own biggest fan, and my own worst critic. I have been making hip-hop beats casually for over a decade. About a year ago I really discovered Dubstep, and it was love at first listen.
I always have a bassline or a melody running through my head, and I make tracks as an outlet for that constant stream. I also produce because the process moves me. When I am producing, I am in another world. Each track is born out of a particular mood or feeling, and when I listen to the tracks months or years later, I am drawn right back into the mood of that time, for better or worse. I began putting my music online because I figured if I can move myself with my music, then perhaps it can also move somebody else. I am thrilled to see so many people enjoying my music.
My current setup revolves around Ableton Live. I use a Beringer 49-key keyboard and an Akai MPK Mini pad-keyboard. I also own a Novation Launchpad (which admittedly gets little use. To create my basslines and synths,I mostly use NI Massive. I have no formal training, and learned all I know by experimentation and online tutorial.
COLLABORATORS WANTED FOR CHARITABLE DUBSTEP PROJECT
I am looking for some collaborators for some charitable work. The plan is to release an EP (or more) for sale. All proceeds will be donated to a charity, to be determined by the collaborating artists. I am really looking for rappers, singers, and songwriters for collaboration (I have no idea how to collaborate from afar with another producer). Other producers who are interested though, we could just use your tracks on the album/ep? I'm open to suggestions. Please reach out if you are interested.
