So anyway yeah I've been meaning to get into dubstep. I've listened to a couple of obvious big ones (shit like in for the kill's skream remix) but not much else. Are there any seminal albums (probably not) or tunes, remixes, etcs, that I can youtube? Anything I _have_ to listen to?
yeah hit me.
It's a massive scene now and it's come a long way in just a few short years, one of the turningpoints in my opinion was Caspa & Rusko's FabricLive 37 album which took it into a much more standardised sound, but the good thing about dubstep is that there's so much undiscovered or underground tracks that only get played at clubs. There's a huge variety of subgenres and different takes on the sound, it's all about finding a DJ who you like and who picks the sort of tracks that you like. No DJ will souly play their own tunes.
I can appreciate 10 pages is alot to scroll through so I'll give you some good starter stuff. Let me know which sort you're digging and I'll give you some more if you like. There are definetly some classic dubstep tunes that still get played despite being quite old, you will more than likely hear some of these on a typical dubstep night but bare in mind the tracklist is always changing.
To simplify it, there's dubstep that sounds alot like grime, in fact alot of dubstep tracks are used to back a mc when they spit, there's some jumpy faster paced dubstep, some deep moody heavy kind of dubstep, some 'dirty' dubstep which is basically a sound which isnt stictly kind on the ears but occasionally works, plus a ton of other subgenres.
Rusko - Too Far
Rusko - Hammertime
Skream - Midnight Request Line
Skream - Oskilatah
Benga & Coki - 'Night' (probably THE most famous dubstep tune for some reason)
Burial - Archangel
Sukh Knight - Diesel Not Petrol
Emalkay - When I Look at You
Joker feat. Ginz - Purple City
Chasing Shadows - ill
