What DAW do you use?
Reason.

How long have you been producing for?

2-3 Years.

What VSTs do you favour?

Well I use Reason, so no VST's. Preferably Maelstrom for basslines, and I like Thor for synths. I'm quite flexible as I have been using Reason for quite a while :)

What artists/labels would you say most clearly reflect your sound?
I never really stick to one style, but it bounces between stuff similar to the Circus crew (Funtcase, Doctor P, Flux Pavillion), Taiki & Nulight, Gemini, DKS, Requake and Badklaat.

Influences (both inside & outside of Dubstep)
Koven, Mojo, Benga, Bar 9, Dizzee Rascal, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Funtcase, Disclosure, Noisia, Dismantle, Farkas, Lee Perry, Mobb Deep, Joker, Sukh Knight, Distance, Wu Tang Clan, Rusko.

Would this be a remote collaboration, or would you prefer someone to work with IRL?
Remote would be far easier

What DAW do you use?
i use ableton for most of my tunes, but i have started figuring out logic, too... logic is pretty nice for sound design and the plug-ins are quality!

How long have you been producing for?
well i started in spring 2012 with ableton when i was 15, before that i used garageband which was more like dragging loops on other loops, so .. started taking it seriously 5-6 months ago

What VSTs do you favour?
massive, camelcrusher, psp vintage warmer. i also love the granulator by monolake in ableton - nice for textures and lush sounds. yeah and thats it really , i mostly use the standart ableton & logic plug-ins... logic synths are very good imo

What artists/labels would you say most clearly reflect your sound?
i am not producing for very long so i have to admit that i don't have found a own sound really. at the moment my impression is that my tunes sound really generic (which i think is a bit boring), so maybe i would say benton or sleeper/district. Labels.. hmm.. chestplate, wheel and deal maybe? all in all i want to find a more distinct 'sidi' - sound. want to go more in that sampling direction with audio and stuff :D, experiment more, dont want to limit myself to 'dungeon' or shit like that..

Influences (both inside & outside of Dubstep)
well inside dubstep i think my main influences are producers like commodo, lurka, clouds, L A S, of course the chestplate crew and lot of deep medi stuff. but i am more influenced by things which surround me , for example the weather or a nice, clean room.. ;) (i like it when things are well designed and clean and organised) it can be everything really.

Would this be a remote collaboration, or would you prefer someone to work with IRL? (NB - if IRL, please state location)
would prefer irl, but i live in dresden, germany so dont know if there's somebody lurking here in the forum who is near to me. :)
but if you're interested , you can contact me for remote or irl. collab would be cool anyway! ;-)

Hi everyone

I'm Daniela IronEars from Israel so let's dig in:

What DAW do you use?
Ableton & Cubase

How long have you been producing for?
About 6 years on&off. been producing and recording my own music for about 14 years now but I'm kinda old (29)

What VSTs do you favour?
Massive, Albino, I like to tweak it myself so I re-sample etc.

What artists/labels would you say most clearly reflect your sound?
Hard to tell. I'm a bit odd

Influences (both inside & outside of Dubstep)
I'll speak in genres because there are too many: Heavy metal, mathcore metal (like the dillinger escape plan), strange metal (like Sikth), grange, dub and reggae, DnB, DUBSTEP, classical music, TRIPHOP, good melodic urban, unicorns, saws and pink little barbie dolls.

Would this be a remote collaboration, or would you prefer someone to work with IRL? (NB - if IRL, please state location)

What DAW do you use?

Studio One V2/Cubase 5 - although I can use most DAW's, just not logic (no mac)

How long have you been producing for?

Nearly 3 years now, but as a serious thing... about 2 years.

What VSTs do you favour?

massive as my main synth(but can work in most synths). But loads and loads of effects plugs.. too many to mention. I work mainly in audio files rather than midi. Most stuff gets bounced down once it's right.

What artists/labels would you say most clearly reflect your sound?

I don't try to sound like anyone else. I definitely have my own style. It has come quite naturally tho, I didn't force it.

Influences (both inside & outside of Dubstep)

Anything with an original sound. From Burial to Moby, Red Hot Chili Peppers to System of a Down.


Would this be a remote collaboration, or would you prefer someone to work with IRL? (NB - if IRL, please state location)

I live in Leeds, UK. Anyone from Leeds would be a bonus but I guess that is unlikely so a remote collab is great too!

What DAW do you use?

Cubase. Occasionally Ableton for sound design and experimenting/fun.

I don't think this is too important anyhow, as we can just send stems.

How long have you been producing for?
About 2-3 years.

What VSTs do you favour?
Synths - Diva, Massive, FM8 are my main ones but I love trying new plugins.
Effects: Waves, FabFilter, Altiverb, tons more.
Sampler: Kontakt.
Drums: Mostly audio but I've been playing with Geist and Nerve lately.

What artists/labels would you say most clearly reflect your sound?
Honestly I don't know, I'm still working on my sound and have made tunes in a few different genres.

Influences (both inside & outside of Dubstep)
Early 90s hardcore, jungle.
Later 90s trance, hip hop, garage, hard dance, dnb.
00s grime, electro house, neurofunk, minimal.

Would this be a remote collaboration, or would you prefer someone to work with IRL? (NB - if IRL, please state location)
Probably remote unless we live nearby, I'm in Devon, UK.

FL Studio 10

How long have you been producing for?
About a year but I've only recently started producing dubstep
I've also played guitar for 7 years and been in and out of metal bands during that time

What VSTs do you favour?
NI Massive, Vanguard Quasar, CamelPhat, CamelCrusher, Density, Ozone 5 and a lot of the FL plugins

What artists/labels would you say most clearly reflect your sound?
I've tried to make my style as unique as I can while containing the elements of dubstep that I like

Influences (both inside & outside of Dubstep)
Datsik, Zomboy, Excision, Downlink, Feed Me and the first MOS Sound of Dubstep compilation have had the biggest influences on me in terms of dubstep
Infected Mushroom, Grendel, God module, Astrix, Combichrist, Grimes and Aphex Twin influenced most of the other genres of EDM that I make
