That's just a quote from one of Breakage's recently uploaded tunes in Myspace ("Together"). A bangin tune.

So, now you know a bit about Breakage. If you haven't listened to any tracks go and listen to the MySpace player, really nothing less then heavy and really good sounding in the player.

Now, it's your turn to ask away. Bear in mind that only serious questions will be answered. No "how do you make wobble" and "what sneakers you wearin" type of questions.
If this proves to be working well, expect more stuff like this from your lovely hosts FSTZ and Johnny Beat.
For example, untitled jungle sounds like a kit with hihat break beneath, whereas, bring back has got to be chopped breaks?
Also, where to go in manchester to find an Audiosalad style vibe?
Thought of another 2....
What is your favorite music outside of electronic dance music?
Was there one tune back in the day that really made you fall in love with dance music?
it is good to get a career started with a remix?
i once read there is a special bass note at the end of "so vain" you only can hear on some big systems with enough bass power, is that true?
what is more fun to produce: dubstep or drum & bass?
i use a 2.4ghz 17 MacBook Pro, with Logic Studio 8, Recycle, Sound Studio 3 and AudiofinderJohnny Beat wrote:One general question to get the things rollin - what's your setup/workstation like? Software and hardware wise?
i also have a M-Audio Oxygen 8 controller...
no hardware, i had a Korg Trinity once, but sold it to Equinox after a year or so because it just became a touch screen tshirt shelve
mostly i use Space Designer, i highly recommend the spring verbs!james fox wrote:what reverb plugs do you use, and have you got any tips for the use of reverb in general?
my only tip for using reverb is to not add too much, it an be a disaster
oh, and eq your reverbs (some reverbs have it built in, or you can just eq the reverb send) i dont know if a lot of people do it, but i like to get all the bottom end out them, especially for reverbed claps and stuff, makes it nice and snappy
it changes all the time, but most times a load up a break and (for dubstep mostly) rearrange it to a half time sort of feel and then just switch and swap bits around for a couple of hours or soWub wrote:How do you start programming your beats? Do you have a clear pattern in mind, or is it a case of setting down and just letting it flow?
What's the strangest sample you've ever used in a release, and where did it come from?
In your experience, what's the most underrated place to sample from?
if i have a sample or music down first though, i think of a pattern in my head and lay it down
