I make no secret my addiction to fiverr. I have bought almost 200 gigs and when done right, there is no better value for the money. When done wrong… meh, it costs less than a beer. The best part is that I can apply my imagination outside my skill set.
So the veep of product at Visual.ly is Adam Breckler. I interact with him on a daily basis, but when I say his name in my head it sounds like “Breklah!” as vocal drop by some Jamaican dude. I really could not get this out of my head and the best way to remove something from your headspace is to make a real thing. Since I am no Jamaican dude, I found one on fiverr and asked him to do the following drop. $5.
In includes some inside jokes as well. The drop is actually from Andrew Blood, who I guess had a dancehall hit a while back. Why is he doing gigs on fiverr? I never ask that question.
So the drop sounded sweet, just as I pictured it. But I couldn’t stop there. Dubstepping stuff is also a running gag at Visual.ly and since I have no dubstepping skills, I found someone that did and ask them to create a tune using the above sample. I actually had two separate people remix it but chose the one below to move forward with. $10.
It was pretty good, but not perfect. Not enough use of the samples. So I found another dude, The Green Raver to remix the above track. $5.
A pretty dope remix for sure but it still needed something. Many of my favorite dubstep tracks had some female vocals. This needed one too. So I found another gal to drop some vocals. I had her write the melody and sing it, which was two gigs total. $10.
She killed it, especially since the melody she had to write was against a dubstep tune and she primarily does commercial jingles. So, I had all the pieces, time to send it back over to The Green Raver again for a final mix down. $5.
The final track is above, though I did make a few edits in audacity. So grand total, $35, which for a custom dubstep track with vocals is pretty ridiculous. It was the first time I had pieced together various fiverr gigs and it’s certainly something I will be doing again. I had toyed with the idea of producing a video with fiverr talent but at some point you just have to ship what you have. Anyways… I can’t say I solved my original problem since I’ve had the above tune in my head for weeks now.
