On my latest track, I started messing with mixing some epic orchestral music with dubstep. I’ve always been interested in fusing genres and this seems to be working. Plan to hear a lot more samples of acoustic instruments to be meshed with EDM sounds.
So I’ve been watching “Game of Thrones” and “The Tudors” a lot lately. This is probably how I can explain the sound of this track. ALSO, I just recently got Kontakt and Stylus RMX. I use all kinds of other plug-ins, but these are the newest to me. I wanted to get that epic “going into battle” feel mixed with a kind sultry, “I’m fucking all the ladies in the court” type feel. And then a, “I’m killing people in a battle” type sound. That’s about it. Still working on it. Expect a final release within the next couple weeks. Or don’t. Your choice.
It’s like, “My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, Commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.”
