Posts Tagged ‘Dubstep’

My creative juices now seem to be flowing again, although I am still locked into sound design mode. I suppose though this is one of the great things about Electronic Music, if you are stuck in a rut in production, then move to sound design, to keep things fresh, never a boring moment.

Talking about boring moments, I have been trying to write some dubstep beats, but so far am just not enjoying writing them. I fancied doing some dubstep hoping that it will allow me greater creative freedom, not with the beats, but with the rest of the composition. But I am missing than DnB feel of the beats, I am sure I will get around to doing a pure dubstep tune at some point, but for now, the time is just not right (that may change tomorrow though, lol).

I went to the peace in the park festival at Sheffield over the weekend (a great free festival for charity www.peaceinthepark.org.uk ) , which was great, and it certainly gave me a bit of a kick to want to play music in a live scenario, so I had better buckle up and get writing some tunes!!!

So if you are a producer, do you flirt between sound design & song arrangement mode?

Since my last tune Frozen, I have had a creative block, so instead of making music, I have been spending my time messing around setting up my new pair of speakers.

After listening to some tunes in the car, I decided perhaps I should play around with some Dubstep for a change, so started making some beats. But things were still not flowing, so I changed tactic, back to Sound Design.

Over the last week I have been trying out different ideas on sound design ranging from Trance Chords to Screaming Dubstep leads, in fact describing the patch as “screaming” does not do it justice, it is better described as downright filthy!!

I was thinking, this time it will be different, I fancy a change, lets do some Dubstep, but semi chilled (for me that is) with some Trance, but it seems that this lead patch may be taking control and leading me down the dirty path again (I just cant stop myself).

So what music food shall I serve you up, a Happy Meal or Mc Filthy??? Or are you greedy and want a serving of both??
