On a Nissan/Infiniti forum I frequent, one of the members DJ's. He started out just throwing stuff together and I'd critique it a bit; mostly letting him know how much clipping there was in the song and amount of compression used. I basically didn't add anything constructive . He now does shows at clubs around his area.
Gotta agree to that. Many people would be surprised how much bass is actually present in a well-recorded metal song if listened to on a good system. Nothing sounds better to me than the driving beat of a fast double-bass that is mic'd well.
Thats for sure, I live for good recorded metal. I little mixed genre band that sounds amazing is abandon all ships. They are a mix between dance, metal, and screamo but their album is VERY well recorded and has some really interesting breakdowns.
Yeah check it out when you get home, it's a legit music service that gives you access to a ton of music and let's you create custom playlists like Myggpower did that are open to others adding songs to it.
I pay $10/mo for it because I like having the massive library on my phone for the car or gym, but they have a free account that should let you play everything on your computer.
i usually monitor the trend using beatport.com. there, u will find what most downloaded, track popularity per dj, and tons of heavy bass stuff. one of my favorites called "Glitch Hop".. why the heck they named that, idk...
