Bless the Selector

January 26, 2010 8:58 PM

A bassy dubstep remix I made of the 80s digital reggae track "Bless the Selector" by Colonel Mite. Give me some feedback...

Made with Ableton, a keyboard, a microphone and a toy xylophone.

Don't know the original, but like this. Main feedback - it doesn't modulate enough. Stays on the same A natural root all the way through. Problem with that is that it's very linear and you need to break it up by changing key a few times - release the tension, then build again. Light and shade, flex and release, dynamics - name of the game if you want to make good records. Positives - really good sound, nice and sparse, love the bass, a good musical imagination at work here. Like I said - I like it, but....

I have to agree with MajorDundee about building the tension, I think it's a good start. I think a hallmark of dubstep is having the major drops and if your song doesn't go up it can't go down. But reggaeton and dubstep is always good. Check out this link of a dubstep remix of Collie Buddz by Killabits
