Dubstep10th Apr 2009, 16:34 #1
didnt see any posts about this, havent heard any discussion so....
This is to outline what Dubstep is and the major artists
Dubstep is a genre of electronic music that has its roots in London's early 2000s UK garage scene. Musically, dubstep is distinguished by its dark mood, sparse rhythms, and emphasis on bass. Dubstep started to spread beyond small local scenes in late 2005 and early 2006
For a list of dubstep artists: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_dubstep_musicians
my favorite artists are:
Rusko, Caspa, Stenchman, Benga and Coki
Coki - Spongebob: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlEyR27fvGc
Benga & Coki - Night: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNStVlJWy88
Stenchman - Signs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnHBv4dLK1c
Rusko - Mr. Chips: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1zA910Hx-E
be sure to judge AFTER the intros (usually 30 seconds), I'll probably post more videos later

Did anyone go to BLOC Weekender a few weeks back? I posted in the thread about Beardyman already, but I went. It's primarily a dubstep and ISM festival. That was really the first time I'd experienced dub (on any level) and I have to say it was a great weekend!

I know a dubstep artist, I'll see if I can find his myspace again.
he gave me a track called You Look S**tty, it samples the movie Hot Rod and my god.... it destroys speakers
any news about rusko? all he seems to do now is remixes? (although his Day 'N Nite & I Kissed A Girl ones are amazing)
oh, and I'm off to Evoloution Weekender in may, and Rusko is going to be there I shall report back afterwards!
in the meantime:

i hope you didnt miss out on dubsteps new god when you were running through notable artists in the genre.
burial is the first dubstep artist to get the genre any sort of recognition from anywhere besides the underground.his sophomore album "Untrue" was nominated for the mercury music prize (should have won too,i might add) and hes basically running on universal critical acclaim.
