As a part of my Glitch Hop week, I’ve made a tutorial for how to get the iconic stuttered vocal effect found in loads of songs by Glitch Hop artists!

All you need is a sample and 5 minutes.   And Reason.   And a bunch of Kinder Buenos (Well, I had them and it certainly helped my inspiration!)

Check the tutorial out here!

I had a really, really nice surprise recently.

I was given a few sample packs to review from Primeloops.com, one of which was called “Glitch Hop drum beats”. I had only heard of the genre in passing, never actually listening to it or researching it, but figuring I had the samples I convinced myself to take the time to do so.

It’s all very well and good someone saying how good the samples are, but I figure you need something to listen to.  So here it is: My original composition made entirely with the Dubstep Producer Sample Pack.

I found an AWESOME insight into making quality dubstep on youtube – Quite possibly my favourite Dubstep DJ at the moment, Rusko, explains how he makes his signature sound.

Rusko is one of the only Dubstep producers that I feel has a really unique style. He’s made Dubstep fun; it’s stuff that could get you dancing even though it’s got that offbeat, slow Dub feel to it. And here is how he does it.
