solid mix rad, good luck!

Well thanks,
I really enjoyed your mix, we've got a similar taste in Dubstep I guess.
Let's both post track lists when voting is over

Well. It was tough. Cheers to you both for reminding me that good dubstep still exists. Though I preferred the track selection a little bit more in mix number 1, mix number 2 didn't really have any noticeable technical errors, and there were a few in mix 1 that were kind of distracting. Either way, I enjoyed both. Cheers!

This was a tough one. The darkness was everywhere.

Mix 1 seemed to have a limited number of tracks and fell into a trance-like pattern of repeat the loop with little variation. In addition, the limited number of transitions seemed off or at least not smoothly executed.

Mix 2 had more tracks and interesting transitions. I voted for Mix #2.

Thanks a lot for voting!
tried to give rep to both of you, but With CamDaze it says "must spread some around first", so I will try and remember and rep you later.

also sent rep, thanks for voting!

let's get some more votes fellas! rep to be spread :tup:

I agree, some more voters would be very nice.
Maybe Dubstep is just not a popular genre on this site ?

03-11-2013, 01:16 PM
maybe people don't trust it's good dubstep :(

03-11-2013, 06:05 PM
I actually enjoy the heck out of the first song in mix 2...

03-13-2013, 03:50 PM
A few days left, please, some more votes ?
(it's GOOD dubstep, really ;) )

Damn, you weren't joking when you said Dark Vibe Battle! Liked both mixes though, respect to both of you.
Mix one started off on a nice tribal vibe and had a solid track selection.
Top opening tune in mix two. Again track selection was solid (although i wasn't feeling the Howard Marks sampling tune)
Was close but voted mix two as felt it was mixed better and liked the tunes more in general.

On a side note, for a forum with so many members, I am surprised more people do not vote on battles :shrug:

thanks for voting, +rep

Same here Mr Rupee, thanks for voting + rep !

Well, poll closed now, the voters are undivided, and I agree with them: Hoff is the well deserved winner of this one.

I really want to thank you for the feedback though, you're actually the first people other than myself to ever listen to a mix of mine (if I don't include once or twice where I sneaked it in as background music without telling anyone).
I will make sure a next one will be better mixed, actually I should have done a few more takes on this one and it might have been a bit better.

Thing is, when I saw the callout thread title, I immediately thought of a few of these tracks, and how fitting the "dark vibe dubstep" description was for them, so that's why I entered.

Anyway, here's my track list, in case anybody is interested:
blood on my hands - Shackleton
DMT - Biome featuring fallen 45
Lucid dream - Thelem
Space - Biome
Kuru - Strago & Snooks
Potstir - Strago & Snooks
Convoy - Marlow

Once again, Thanks Hoff and everybody who voted !
