Safe everyone, i'm new here but ya'll seem friendly so I was hopin you could check out a few of my tunes. I've been playing piano since ages (i'm 19 now) so its a big influence for me, as you'll probably hear. Anyway I recently got quite heavily into dubstep and then production of dubstep about 5-6 months ago. Its all fairly dark, (how intentional that is I don't know), but hopefully not too so to remove itself from the genre. Also, things i've done recently have been increasingly lary / dirty.
Anyway, heres the myspace, innit.

I'll bite! Dude...you have some serious talent. Very unique sounding shit for sure, which is always great.

Just listening to Twice Removed, great composition and change ups, would be a bitch to mix this track, but it's extremely interesting. Maybe some more work on the engineering side would kick your tracks in to the stratosphere.

Respect to you young sir, looks like you have a promising future. 8)

really digging 'twice removed' and the glitchy elements. nice blend if idm, dubstep and piano!! you've got a nice sound man, keep going in these directions and you'll do well in music.



i agree with HxdB, the sound/engineering side of things could use some work but man this is structured very well.

if you're passing out 320's please be sure to hit me up.

Twice Removed is fucking insane, serious stuff, nice one man.

edit - Downhearted too, the drums are sick. Your piano skills are obviously a next level. Where have you got your drum samples from if you don't mind saying?

Sick producing, you'll definately do well.

Ah this made my day; it's all great feedback so cheers.
It's nice to hear after all this time listening to this stuff day in day out that i have a "sound".
@boyd, i think the drums on downhearted are messed up and filtered versions of the amen break... i actually co-produced it with Airhead (producer from Leeds) in very late 2007.
@HxdB, good point about the mixing (if you mean DJ's mixing it into a set), i guess I need to start catering to the DJ's out there... which brings me neatly into 'yes, PM me for 320s'!

cheers all
