Dubstep

Post by Tomaroundtheworld » 25 Oct 2007, 16:54

I always thought was far too slow, had nothing to it and only appealed to Ketamine fiends. Now I've actually realised it's really good. On a proper good sound system with heavy bass it's pretty awesome. I saw Skream last night and although I was looking that way before, I'm now definately converted.

i don't really have much to contribute to this thread, seeing as i don't know what dubstep is. but i just felt i had to say that without me and tomaroundtheworld, this section of the forum would be pretty dead.

Yeah, true Dave. Sometimes I just post pretty pointless things on here to see if they get a reaction.

The undisputed king of Dubstep is Skream. Try to find a mix or something of his. The problem with Dubstep is that much more so than any other type of music, it sounds less than half as good when it's not being pumped out of an amazing system. It's all about the pounding bass. And it's a grower. It's very slow, and quite minimal. I never liked it at first but I kept hearing odd bits and it kept sounded better and better. If you like slow and dirty music then you might like it. If you're partial to a bit of ket though, you'll probably love it!

Ok, there is a really good album by a guy called Burial. It's self titled. It should be easy to get. It's like home listening dubstep. Also there is another one i like by Kode 9 and Spaceape which is also very good. Check them out.

Burial is just about to relase his second album aswell. Definately an aquired taste but I love it. I love how illusive he is. Apparently outside his family only about 5 people know who he is. He's had people coming up to him saying that they know Burial and that they're female.I really like that side of him. Musically it's a bit different but pretty awesome still. The way he puts it, is that it's music for the comedown pretty much. When you're at the end of the night chilling, having a smoke, playing some playstation, chatting etc. It's atmospheric and moody, not just slow dubby and bassy. I just love some of the sounds in it. And the thing about Dubstep is it isn't just the music, It's the silences and how minimal it is that makes it too.

Kode9 is wicked too, but as far as putting names to dubstep goes, I'm pretty much limited to Burial, Skream and Kode9.

That mix ThomW posted a while ago is well worth getting for anyone who might be interested in getting into Dubstep. Some of the drops in there are fucking unbelievable. I can't believe I dismissed Dubstep for so long. Fucking quality.

Dubstep's well good. I like the fact that it can be both relaxing and upbeat at the same time. Plus the heavy bass. Lush. I'm sure it is brill with ket, too. :P

Plastician is playing in Oxford at the end of January.

And Skream is doing a night at the Academy on the 8th Feb too. Not sure about the whole lineup yet as it's not been announced, but Cyantific is playing too, and there's probably going to be some big name dance act headlining it. Sounds swell :headphones:

I forgot about mentioning this. Hype and Benga and Task Force too. Should be an amazing night.

Also Coop, thanks for the recommendation. I'll get on it.

I thought dubstep would start to run out of ideas pretty quickly, but it's seemed to evolve really well. It's kind of split into a few different types now. I love tracks like Japan and Cockney Violin - melodic tracks with a deep bassline, filthy horrible tracks, and there's a lot with emphasis on the "dub" of dubstep too. I'm far from bored of it.

Plastician is technically one of the best DJ's around at the moment. I've got a 4-deck mix he did on Rinse FM and it's hectic shit. You should check out Sub FM, particularly the Afterdark sets. You can get them as podcasts off iTunes and they're all brilliant. You can get loads of good sets off dubstep forum too. If you like Skream you can get all his old Stella session mixes from Rinse FM as well as loads of other quality mixes. :headphones:

The Rinse FM podcasts I got for a while just pissed me off. Some great tunes, but most of them don't fucking shut up. N-Type is the worst I'm sure - as sick a DJ as he is. And rewinds on a radio show are especially stupid.

I've been cooling down getting sets at the moment, purely because I'm sick of having a lot of music without knowing what it is. And if I ever get any money together I'm going to get a set of CDJs for sure. I'd never be off them. Probably mostly be doing house but I'm loving dubstep too. Before we went out on friday I only had a laptop and tried to master the art of Youtube mixing. It's something we've been doing for a while but I got it working better than ever on friday. You can't beatmatch so there's obviously a lot of luck involved, but when it sort of works it's brilliant.
