Dubstep Version of Rumba Song for #Free Download

I produced a dubstep version of the song "Words Of Love" from my latest album "Going Out For Summer." The song was originally planned as rumba, but this version has a minimalist arrangement mostly based on bass and drums. The remarkable part is the solo guitar in the middle of the song, where effects are added to the guitar line.

I try to find new ways of playing and recording a guitar. Squeaking and fumbling is known from rockbands since the 80s. Every metal band does that. So I combine my guitar play with effects in the studio. I call that process After Effects reminding on the workout of a music video when I put effects in the final cut.

The interesting thing in this recording is the combination of genres. The song is written as rumba song and originally recorded as rumba with modern sound effects. Now the rumba rhythm was replaced by a pure electronic drumset. The chords playing guitar was removed and the bassline was mixed by a dubstep sound bass line.

You can download the song for free at http://soundcloud.com/viennacc/words-of-love
