My two favourite straight dubstep releases from this year:
Pangaea's S/T ep of which this is the first track:
And James Blake's The Bells Sketch Ep, of which this is the title track:
If you want a cd comp, I'd get Hyperdub 5 first, which is pretty unbeatable in terms of offering an introduction to some of the classics, and giving an overview of the more interesting side of dubstep in 2009.
and some other stuff i might write later.
Just get Hyperdub 5 to start, and if ya dig, then get on with all these other folks.
subsitute my girls (?) for
but I agree with theshipment really, get hyperdub, the last dubstep allstars, or even fabric's elevator music if you enjoy your House/Funky/Grime stuff and then take it from there.
old jimi'll be around soon enough for the expert's guide..
2562's my fave.
Still listening to Unbalance.
I suppose I still listen to 3eps, Jarvik Mindstate and Waiting for You though. End of last year was good for dubstep full-lengths so get those.
listen to Kode9's Sonar mix from 2007. This mix really opened my eyes.
I'm not an expert fan, but there's a lot on there which I liked and was pleasantly surprised by.
I also really like listening to Mudd Up! on WFMU with DJ Rupture but I don't think that's really dubstep.
But I found this instead
Mala of Digital Mystikz does a podcast with Gilles Peterson. It's a pretty amazing mix of stuff (there's Burning Spear and Steve Reich on there as well), but the first three tracks are all Mala's and they're all AMAZING. 'Now that's what I call dubstep', or something like that.
Have you listened to Dubstep Allstars 7? Apparently it was released last year, but it slipped me by completely.
I gave Chef's one half a cursory listen and didn't really bother beyond that -- it's not really my kind of stuff.
It's all about Scuba's Sub:stance mix really though, I think it's probably one of my favourite dubstep mix CDs ever.
Would be cool to see him spin in Berghain.
Just getting into that place would be good enough for me though. Seems like a challenge to say the least...
One of the most worthy hours of music I've listened to in a long time -- lots of chat about Mala's influences and the early days of dubstep as well.
The Roots of Dubstep comp
Dusk + Blackdown - Margins Music
Skull Disco - Soundboy Punishments
Pinch - Underwater Dancehall
Are a few CDs worth checking out.
Mala: deep spaced out vibes / DMZ / Deep Medi.
Kode9: always takes it somewhere diffrent / Hyperdub.
Skream: wide range of sounds from tearout to deepness / Disfigured Dubs.
Shackleton / Appleblim: deep as hell techno infused stuff / Skull Disco / Mordant Music / Apple Pips.
Scuba: deep techy productions but the label reaches far and wide / Hotflush / Hotflush Two.
Peverelist: Insane hypnotic grooves that go so deep and sound like techno from another world via dub / Punch Drunk.
Ramadanman / Ben UFO / Pangaea:from rolling garage to techno, house and everything inbetween / Hessle Audio.
Brackles / Shortstuff / Martin Kemp: From hard broken funky house to insane melodic dubstep and garage / Blunted Robots.
Joker / Gemmy / Guido / Ginz: Hard purple funk with a grimey influence / Kapsize / Planet Mu / Punch Drunk.
Loads more... The albums that got me into it where Burial's two and Appleblim's Dubstep Allstars Vol.6 mix as well as the first Skull Disco compilation. But things really get going when you start getting into radio like Rinse FM/Sub FM then start buying singles, most stuff wont go near an album ever.
his stuff was a big part in me loving the sound too, he's awsome. Really musical hyper insane party music.
