    Default Dubstep Concert w/ Rusko

    A friend of mine talked me into going to a dubstep concert last night, and as the title implies, this concert featured Rusko (as well as Major Lazer, but I couldn't stick around for him due to work).

    I had a great time and really got into the music. The opening acts were pretty cool too, but not nearly as engaging, which comes as little surprise to me.

    I have to say, this being my first real encounter with the DubStep genre, the show probably single handedly turned me onto the style. Gritty bass, funky drums, and silly dancing.

    tl;dr: I like dubstep now. Recommend me some bands if you're so inclined.

    Yeah, they were pretty cool. I could have done without the singer-lady screaming, tho.

    meh... Its kindof part of their appeal to me. They are a really noisy band, and dont even have any albums out. Their music is really just about trashing things.

    As far as dubstep goes, I assume you want UK wobble basically. Check out Rottun Records (vaskit, Datsik, Excision, Downlink, good scary wobble). Dub Police, Southside Dubstars.

    Caspa has a really similar sound to Rusko. I'm not a huge fan of ruskos wobble, but I really like how he treats percussion (if you watch his masterclass vids, they are really interesting).

    Some other great wobble artists are : Reso, 16bit (they are really eclectic), Borgore, Chasing shadows, Sub Scape, Bar 9.

    A personal favorite of mine is Ricorb, but they are quite small.

    There is a ton of different flavors of dubstep, but most of those are pretty much along the rusko vein, if not a bit heavier at times.

    I thought about going to that show when they stop by Chicago.

    As mentioned before, you will probably like Bar 9, and Borgore.

    You will probably also love Nero.

    I love the metal influences in borgores tracks (drum breakdowns are amazing), but other than that his mid synths seem kind of... shallow. I'm not a big fan of the whole robot sound thing either, but when you put it through a big enough system, the bass takes over and you can lose yourself.

    Nero is a lot smoother, but I find his songs are dissatisfying sometimes. They seem to lack an emotional "drop".

    Vaski has greattt sci fi sound. 16bit is allllll over the place, from totally disgusting to nice and smooth.


    If you want to check out the smooth stuff, look up burial. Its really nice.

    There's also a Dubstep thread here somewhere.
    It's the FAQ. Read it.
