    Never heard of it. Does it have anything to do with dub?

    Cool. Like a bit of 2562, El-B, and obvious artists like Skream and Digital Mystikz etc myself

    A girl I work with a fair bit fucking loves it. Goes to all the nights, hangs around on their forums, loves it. Played me some one day, I fucking hated it. Lots of annoying noise and shouting, if you ask me.

    Not a big fan but I've got the Kode9/Quarta330 split and it's fantastic. Can anyone recommend anything else like that? I really like 8-bit instrumental stuff but can't seem to find much else that hasn't got hip-hop/woman singing samples over the top.

    You sure that was dubstep?

    A lot of it is instrumental. Maybe you meant grime or something.

    Yeah, most vocal stuff in Dubstep is very subtle and often heavily manipulated.

    No shouting or annoying rapping.

    Nice example: Here

    Been listening to loads recently; Youngsta, Hatcha, Benga, Distance and particularly Caspa are all smashing it. Caspa's new tracks are unbelievable. Check out some sets at rinsefm.blogspot.com

    Seems it's essential to be called something that resembles the numbers and letters under food barcodes or kewl spellingz.

    It's OK

    The Benga and Burial Albums are ok, everything else I have heard is shit. I love drum & Bass and Dub too.

    Hmm, doesn't really sound like dub to me but there you go. Not saying it's shit, it's just I don't see how it really sounds like dub.

    Or does it just use similar techniques to dub?

    The bass and echo used are derivative of dub (Maybe closer to drum and bass than actual dub). Some of the Burial stuff owes a lot to dub production techniques.

    Yeah the echo is the only thing I've been able to pick out really. Still, I do love the echo in dub :D

    No, she's definitely into dubstep. I've heard some more via her recently and it was more like what you describe, but what she played me at first definitely had way too much bassline and stupid singing.

    I've been listening to more and more dubstep lately. iTAL Tek is ace, also the Benga album's good. Not so far gone on some of the more vocal stuff though.

    Watch out for Marlow too - the bits I've heard from him are awesome. I think he's got an album coming out soonish.

    It's a bit "last season" now though, right?

    Burial's first album is two or three years old.

    It's been going for a while, but it's starting to diversify a lot now and become more interesting. As a genre I think it's still got a long way to develop, and could be around for a long time. At least that's how I see it...

    So what's k00L now if dubstep's out?
  • Deleted user 24 July 2008 01:08:32
    Big band music.

    I heard a trickle that "Niche" would be the new big thing.

    Btw, when I say "last season", I mean in terms of media limelight, and I think that'll be especially true if Burial gets the Mercury.

    I like the production of the Burial stuff I've heard, but I can't stick the vocals - feels a bit Daniel Bedingfield :/ Yeah, hopefully the hype doesn't kill it in the water, as Mercury is wont to do.

    What's this Niche then, does it have an associated set of dance moves?

    yes, I've just discovered Pev and Appleblim myself, also Various Production are meant to be good.

    Check out:

    http://electronicexplorations.org/

    basically a HIVE for some awesome dubstep on there.

    Marlow, heard of him too. AH, in fact he's done an Electronic Explorations mix, so check that link.

    For those torrently inclined, check:

    http://www.themixingbowl.org/topics.php?action=viewtopic&topicid=36559

    this guy has done a mix of Marlow tracks and happens to be a mate of Marlow.

    TMB is a great resource too... you'll see me about there too.
