I just about finished the first draft of a new track. I'm still fairly bad at the genre, but I am improving a lot. Nexus helped me step my game up tremendously. Check this out let me know if you like it or not.

    It's not House, that much is for certain. It's closer to Trance, more along the lines of Progressive than anything else.

    I can see it getting played in clubs these days though.

    Yeah that's not house...House is mad big over here in London these days...I'm not really a fan...I like music with lyrics...But it gets the hoes movin'...dancin' to house, you see some extreme moves...they call it 'cuttin' shapes' or 'shapeshiftin''...

    House is more like this...

    Yo, T/S, what you using to produce these beats? I've been into DNB for quite sometime and I'm looking to make some music for private listening purposes. I was checking out FL Studio but I'm not sure.

    Any info is appreciated, good looks in advance

    The following descriptions are that of Doc's interpretation and should not be taken as the definitive for each genre discussed

    Dubstep incorporates more "wobble" like bass. The drum track of the song usually "stutters", in a sense, somewhat like break beat tracks. More often than not, a dubstep track will start with a synth intro, few kicks, and a song sung by some chick. When it drops, its all wobble and hard kicks. Dubstep tracks are usually a lil bit more "complex" in their structure compared to the latter two. Skrillex, Dieselboy and Noisia are examples of artist who either dabble or work with this style

    Progressive...think of it as new age music. You will know it when you hear it. I really can't explain progressive as much for I don't listen to it but I know it when I hear it. Ironically this genre can sometimes be combine with Trance for its sounds usually are "light" and fits in with the structure of Trance music. I have no example artist to give for this sound.

    Trance is similar to House and Techno, they both have that kick on every bar (just in case you don't understand, there's normally 4 bars to each beat...the kick will go, thump,thump,thump,thump. Which is similar to the signature west coast sound except that they go every other beat, which is 1 and 3). But instead of the "happy lets love each other" music that usually accompanies a House track, Trance incorporates more an ambiance in its sound. So in a sense, its not as "congested" as House music. The only trance artist I can think of is Paul Oakenfold

    yo. my man pots & pans. this should be a wiki entry lol.
    much appreciated & co-sign that wobble description. I did a "dubstep impression" on stage once & killed just by comparing it to a generator & all the sounds Timbaland makes but forgot to use

    i used to call Trance music you take ex to and after a while you dont care who touches you. Icky lol i noticed House is a lot less ethereal and seemingly more structured

    While FL studio is what people usually recommend to newbies i think a DAW choice should be based on your pc power

    What kind of computer are you running?
