real nice production level on this but i dunno; im not the biggest fan of dubstep but this sounds pretty generic and samey as a lot of stuff thats circulating at the moment. feels like it needs some glitch moments or something but cant really fault your production

Yeah, haven't done the mixing part, just been laying down the basic idea and yeah felt like sharing it. All responses are welcome!
Been having good responses from labels recently, got some releases coming up in Dubstep AND Drum & Bass ;) So I'll be releasing all the details about it as soon as possible.
Just check my website to keep up to date with the details. The things I know for sure are the following.

The first release will be march 29th, "Wilderness" is going to be on the remix album from IDthePoet and it will be FREE for download.
Next one is "PEZ - At The Club (ARTFX Remix)", which is gonna be available on iTunes with the "At The Club - The Remixes".
Also working on a double release on Echowide Music, a Macedonian digital label. More info about the track titles soon.

It's all original and official, nothing stolen from the web. I have the acapella from the original artist, the last Drum & Bass tune "Wilderness" has vocals from the same artist and is gonna be released on his remix album March the 29th.
I'm trying to get in contact with more vocalists lately, and some of my biggest friends who have a Dutch Hiphop crew started doing English stuff too. So maybe I'm gonna do a project with them.

Sounding sick mate! Proper rowdy, makes me wanna go and skate ridiculously fast down a hill or something! Lyrics add to it nicely as well.

I can imagine what you mean, since I'm a skateboarder myself.
But yeah, fucked my knee summer 2010 and still can't skate till November. :p

ye nice bass man what fx u use?
Bass is done with couple of Massive patches, layered with Sylenth1. Added some Ohmicide multiband distortion.
Also I added the "Big Tick Nasty Shaper", believe me it exists. It's a pretty ugly looking thing but yeah it works like a charm!
I haven't done any resampling yet, and still want the bass to be a little sharper.

I also started using Fabfilter Timeless 2, which is really outstanding for interesting effects, as well as PSP Nitro.
Next to that the native Cubase 5 plugins.

I knew it already, but I wanted to wait till I've had reached this level I'm at now.
So yeah, you could expect more vocalists soon! :D

Yeahh, haven't done mixdown and mastering yet, also everything still needs to be EQ'ed properly.
The sub needs to punch through even more, so as the drums, but that is going to happen.
Also I haven't added that much of a percussion element to it, so that will be tomorrow.

not bad man, bass could do with more clarity, but im only listening on headphones..
bass needs a bit more varity i think, maybe the melody too.
but overall, its no bad, and i dnt like this sort of dubstep much

Yeahh I'm going to work on more bass sounds, so it's gonna be a little more choppy. :D
