    Default Who Was I Before Dubstep?

    Seriously, where the hell was i until TONIGHT. i'd heard of it and i guessed it was somehow related to d'n'b but duuuuude...these basslines are illmatic x 4. i can't believe i procrastinated this long to finally give dubstep a chance..and now i can't see me ever NOT listening to this shit. some of the most ill i've heard so far would be:

    kromestar - jumpin
    kid sister - pro nails (rusko remix)
    bar 9 - murda sound
    radikal guru - strong dub (orig. mix)

    am i on the right track towards quality dubstep?

    i have a new found respect for anyone who has known about dubstep longer than i have, for they are far smarter than i.

    Yeah I pretty much found out about dubstep and never moved back. I mean I still like DnB n electro n shit, but as a Bass whore dubstep wins.

    I pretty much spin exclusively dubstep now if I have a choice, but drop some dnb/funky/electro in the mix as well.

    @ Jack: You know Wascal? His stuff is tight! Hook me up with some exclusives yo ;]
    Would be keen to get him to NZ if hes down for it. Dubstep is exploding here right now. Caspa sold the fuck out had last night. 100 people lined up at the door @ 8:45. I run a Friday dubstep night so would be keen to pimp his stuff.

    @hopnotik: You seem to be on the right track, but I'd sort of stay away from the Rusko stuff, its somewhat cheesy, I mean its dancefloor as fuck and people love it, but once you hear the deeper stuff then you realise what I mean.

    Heres a list of my Fav Dubstep producers/tunes right now:

    Subscape (deadlock & tomahawk are OMFG!)
    El-B (one of the Dons of dubstep)
    Horsepower Productions (Basically the 1st dubstep producers)
    Coki
    Mala
    L-Wiz (Girl from codeine city)
    Sukh Knight (Shoot Stars)
    Joker (Digidesign / Playdoe)
    Benga (Eveything he does is godlike, but Night is a tune)
    Skream (Midnight Request Line)
    Stenchman
    Widdler
    Jack Sparrow
    Kode 9
    Marlow
    Bar 9
    Starkey
    16 Bit (Chainsaw Calligraphy)
    Zomby (Liquid Dancehall / Strange Fruit)
    Plastician
    Kromestar
    Babylon System (Gangsters)
    SPL
    Wascal
    Synkro
    NumberNin6
    Unitz (Wait a minute)
    Macarbre Unit (Fantasy is a tune)
    Loefah
    Reso
    Jamie Vex'd
    Cardopusher
    Headhunter

    Heres some of the more mainstream stuff, I mean they do good tunes & I play their tunes but its somewhat more cheesy.
    Chase & Status
    Rusko
    Nero UK
    Caspa

    Haha. There's a lot of Bristol dubstep on there, but that's cos there's a huge local dubstep scene here.

    Yeah, me and Wascal have been good friends for years. He's been the best producer I know since I've known him and it's really nice to see him getting the props he deserves.

    I'll send him a link to this thread now and get you two introduced.

    sounds cool was actually listening to some dubstep last night, I think I will go put all the dubstep I ahve on my ipod and give it a go today during work, wish I could download that mix but I don't think I am allowed to DL mp3 files as I think they have a filter for em, so it will have to wait.
