Customer Review

on 5 September 2011
Debated whether or not to buy this CD and have to say when I did I was very disappointed. Dubstep today has very little in common with the dubstep I fell in love with in 2006. The slow pounding Reggae sub bass and clever samples have been replaced by electro/techno like synths and female house style vocals complemented with horrible grime inspired mc'ing.

Dubstep originally was a move against the commmercial overtones of UK Garage and the violent grime scene, blending Reggae, Drum n Bass and taking small bits out of UK Garage to create a whole new muscial genre. It has since been picked up and morphed into a whole new sound-mashing together electro/drum n bass/pop/grime and garage to create some sort of weird hybrid genre with very little in common with its roots. This was always bound to happen when a new chino wearing wannabe gangsta generation came of age and this unfortunately is what this CD represents. There is the odd decent track on it but I actually felt sad after listening to it knowing that the genre and scene I came to appreciate so much has changed beyond recognition.
