How many heavy drops are there?

#4 Edited by EricNStuff (67 posts) -

Reminds me of a Tyler the Creator beat, but with less bits.

Edit: Oh god, I'm going to look like a huge dork with my avatar and this post.

Sorry.

Well, technically it's a heavy lift.

#6 Posted by JasonR86 (9609 posts) -

Kinda, sorta, I guess?

#7 Posted by super2j (1654 posts) -

i would call it tasteful dubstep? i do like this, kinda sad a guy making videogame music in what the 80's is making better "dubstep" then todays main stream super stars.

No, needs a hip hop beat. Just because it has bass does not mean it's dubstep, this is known as chip-tune.

@super2j: My dad asked me what Dubstep was the other day, and I sent him this. I BLEW HIS MIND. He simply cannot picture anybody in the 80s making this music. And he was there man...

This is scenemusic. And yes it's also Chiptune. If you want to be particularly wanky about it call it SIDstep. But really it's not that either because there's no beat to speak of.

This should give you a better idea how it might sound with a more powerful synth and better (any) drums. And this one is much more traditional IDM.

As you can see, it's definitely not Dubstep at all.

#12 Posted by Little_Socrates (5675 posts) -

No, I think it's just poor quality bass.

@SeriouslyNow: I think you may be taking this question a little bit more seriously than I had intended.

Dude, why the hell do we have any music other than old 8-bit and 16-bit music?

i totally could see him going hard over this. but yeah this isn't dubstep in the slightest. in fact most things considered dubstep have nothing to do with dub (unless random jamaican guy samples counts as dub since technically that's the use of overdubbing), and only vaguely have 2step influences. this has neither.

As someone who has remixed C64 tunes (by converting the SID files to MIDI and then setting up synths and effects before even cutting stuff up) I have nothing by highest respect for chiptune composers of the day. Not did they make 3 Oscillators and Noise sound amazing but they also often coded the music and the players and the synths themselves totally by hand. Geniuses.

I know. There should be some kind of hall of fame for these guys, everyone should know their names.

Nope, it's the wrong tempo and the snare hits are on the second and fourth beats of each bar; dubstep is typically 140bpm and has its main snare hit on the third beat of each bar.

And it draws very heavy inspiration from Dub and Two-step, which is probably a lot more important that it's bpm.

This is good, so no its not dubstep.

This.

But still, this reminds me, and I need to remind all of you...

to pledge on that awesome Turrican anthology soundtrack Kickstarter. Seriously, that's going to be a fantastic collection of C64 goodness.

No. Just because something is made with a computer and doesn't have a large amount of lyrics, it doesn't make it dubstep.

#32 Posted by nintendoeats (5975 posts) -

@NekuSakuraba: I was thinking more about the mad wobble-bass.

#33 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7240 posts) -

@nintendoeats: I wasn't talking about you specifically, it is just that a lot of people now call everything dubstep, like deadmau5 and Daft Punk are dubstep now apparently.

#34 Posted by nintendoeats (5975 posts) -

@NekuSakuraba: WHO SAYS THAT DAFT PUNK IS DUBSTEP!?

They gonna pay.

#35 Posted by I_smell (3925 posts) -

No it's not dubstep, but it is cool!

Sorry, that should've bin "No it's not dubstep, because it is cool".
