Nothing in Life That I Can’t AchievePosted: January 27, 2011
One of the Dubstep artists whose tracks I’ve consistently been impressed with is Bassnectar. A very apt name for this type of music. This song has a constant distorted bass sound that can feel like its wearing you down. In a good way. But it does give you a break or two throughout.
Sometimes I think Dubstep tracks have a “droning” problem and have too little tension and release. With Soundcloud tracks you can actually see what I’m talking about. A waveform that looks like just one big block of sound makes for an uninteresting song, in my opinion. Now, I realize this is dance and club music, but I think a good song needs to go somewhere and I also think this can be done in any genre of music. That is, if the goal is to make a song in the first place. (Ambient music is ambient on purpose).
If you don’t know what I mean, just listen for the rises and falls in this cool Bassnectar track:
Also, check out this cool remix of the same track. It’s destined to blow somebody’s speakers or wake up neighbors as it blares from cars with nice bass rigs:
As always, turn it up!
