    Started working on a pretty filthy tune today.
    It's called 'Shiki', which is Japanese for 'demon'.

    I got inspiration by watching the anime Shiki, and thought about a track around that subject.
    So here it is, feel free to comment and give some feedback!

    Absolutely love the drum work in the intro. Awesome drop too! You've nailed that typical dubstep bass (something which I'm still frustratingly trying to do!)

    You can't go wrong with squares or saws mate. De fundamentals of this basses are squares and saws with a high pitch layer on top.

    Yeah or the Roughmat or Crude is very nice. And try using bandpass and bandreject instead of lowpass.

    sub bass could be turned up a bit . Also that snare seems verryy odd im not too much into it personally , a more nautral sounding snare might fit a bit better in my opinion

    Hmmm, I actually quite liked the snare.
    Maybe I'll change it a little bit.

    nice and loud & clear man... but dubstep is long, turn your talents to drum and bass!

    Drum and bass tunes are going to be coming after I sorted out the record deal at Subway Recordings which I'm working on at the moment.

    kool track mate. this is reli like alot of the sounds im making at the minute, very much inspired by reso etc.

    can really hear the massive at work here.

    one point i would say is that yer the snare is lacking a little, sounds like it needs a sharper attack n punch through the mix a little more and that the low end needs a bit more movement and also could do with boosting a little more. other than that good basis for a growling smelly wobbler.
