I grew up listening to traditional dub reggae, and was therefore interested to find out how dubstep had updated this style of music. I'm pleased to say that I was not disappointed with this compilation of current dubstep artists (none of whom I was previously familiar with), and can thoroughly recommend this as an excellent introduction.
All of the characteristics of traditional dub, such as the use of echo and other studio effects and stripping the vocals right down to the bare bones, are still there, but dubstep has really catapulted dub into the 21st century. The tracks provide a grim reminder of the alienation and fear lurking at the heart of modern urban Britain, but the music is far from being negative. As you would expect, the bass sounds are massive (they made mincemeat of my puny speakers!), the drums crisp and fast and the overall feel comparable to a late night cruise through a modern high tech cityscape (think Massive Attack's Mezanine).
This is definately music suited to late night listens and excellently soundtracks current concerns about the perceived threats of 'outsiders' and the paranoia of a society under increasing surveillance.

Alien 1; "Did you send the Earthlings the death threat?"
Alien 2; "Yeah, but they started dancing to it! They're calling it Dubstep"

Horrible really.
