Description
I made a beat about a week ago and sent it to Nightshade Syndicate, he played with and added some stuff and posted it as Binary Vomit. His was more downbeat sounding. I still had the beat around and decided to try and make a dub song from it. I really love dub but have never tried to do it. I almost hesitate to put it under the dub genre as the drums are just weird, but i did put a reggae bass line over it. it should probably go under experimental, but my wife heard me doing it and just thought i was listening to "your crazy dub music."

The vox are from the freesound project, and in keeping with "dub not dub" concept, I used a field recording of a turkish man singing on a boat. I liked his voice and was able to work it into the song somehow. heres the freesound attribution:

Weird in a good way
The vocal sample does merge and mesh perfectly with the bass and drum (and yes he does have a nice voice). Very creative, you should do more like this!

this was a blast for me, I love working with found stuff. maybe I'll do dub remixes of all my songs (god, that would be ghastly). glad you approved and thanks for listening.

Wild
Weird, wild, rebellious, radical, rolling, rabid, ridiculous, did I say wild?

Was this played in Asian Minor?

what a trip
the whole thing is really well done. So much to like here. The bass line is killer and grooves over the drum track. neat use on the delays. the whole thing is pretty cerebral.

you're right about dub: it's totally addictive. i may have to try my hand at a more traditional sounding cub mix one of these days. thanks so much for listening.

glad you liked. although not really dub, it's my take on it. dubs kind of like hip hop for me; i love it, but i would feel silly trying to do a true to form take on it. feel like it would be really forced and lame sounding. i may try another track in this style with one of your accapellas if you don't mind.

Very cool
I love the bass on this. Really effective use of the vocal sample. This reminds me of London, especially when I lived in Peckham and used to frequent bars that played a lot of this kind of music. Very nicely done. SOunds like dub to me. Cool. Peace.

thanks for the listen, glad it captured your attention. there is some amazing middle eastern music out there, i am really into this one guy Muslim Gauze who does electronic music with seriously honest middle eastern folk influences. he does it all live too (guess he has something against sequencers). thanks for checking it out and for your kind words.

the noises are a car that i toyed with in a sampler; just discovered the joys of sampling, now i need to get a digital field recorder. so glad you liked this one, wasn't sure if anyone would get into it.

Very Cool
You always seem to throw together very interesting peices. They're unique pieces, but they're not bizarre for weirdness sake. It's like you find a bunch of unrelated bits and make them work in unison. Love it. It might be my junky work speakers, but I'd like to hear more of that bass.

glad you like the song (and my haphazard approach). i think it must be your work speakers though, the bass is pretty cranking. thanbks so much for listening.

Dude
Seriously, what can you not do? I really enjoyed this a lot. It reminds me of something off an updated version of Zenyatta Mondatta and I could actually imagine you going crazier with it even. I've been listening to this quite a bit over the last two days and have moved it over to my illustrious iTunes Best of MJ playlist.

Really good modern dub
Very impressed esp since its a genre that you have never tried. The music is very good and the vocals in the track have been well used. I too like my dub (and find it hard to do, although most of my tracks have dub influences), and you have done really well, its a really good track.

wow--
this stopped me in my tracks.

I don't know what dub is, so I'm speaking from the intrinsic value I found in it, and not how it may or may not relate to any genre.

I wish I had the skills to play with found art the way you have here.

I like it!
