Asian dairy product brand Selecta took a bold step to reach out with the Internet-proliferated dubstep movement. Though prone to be labeled as a work inspired by dance flicks of the 00’s, it never fails to impress the most hard-to-please cynic (and frustrated) choreographers with the duo’s seamless and synchronized execution over the wobble bass […]
One dubstep forward, two dubsteps backward. Looks like humans have found a way to make Hollywood films and trailers even more trippy: add dubstep. The new James Bond flick, Skyfall, mashed by pexpix to the strains of Camo & Krooked’s dubstepified take on the 007 theme, is the latest example. We are also very partial […]
Dubstep has been popping up everywhere: from commercials to movie soundtracks. There are even memes about Dubstep. So what is left, but to find out how older people feel about it, which is exactly what The Fine Bros have done with their video, Elders React to Dubstep. Not only is their video funny, it’s also educational. Before […]
Mogra in Akihabara, Tokyo, was established in August 2009 as a club at the center of Japanese Otaku (diehard fan) and anime culture. At Mogra, you can listen to anime songs, game songs, and vocaloid Hatsune Miku, as well as house music and dubstep. If you’re looking for real underground dance music from Tokyo, this is […]
The thing with audio visual DJing is trying to find the image that looks like the sound. Hip hop tends to look like hydraulic cars; disco equals flares, cumbia equals cocktails on the beach, and dubstep, surprisingly, looks like levitating pallets of tomatoes exploding. Props to SaladUK for making that connection.
Dubstep is conquiring the world at a crazy rate at the moment, so it’s real important to know of its roots. Bassweight is a wicked feature length documentary charting its growth from its origins in London town. Beautifully shot, it features interviews with the pioneers and major players of the game.
The Cadger Dubstep Christmas House is 35,000 LED lights flashing a track called First Of The Year (Equinox) by Skrillex. He describes his sound as ‘a mix of dubstep, electro and glitch all thrown together’. Perfect for Christmas.
The UK has been developing some serious talent in the hip hop/dubstep/grime game for a long while now and it’s always a beautiful thing to see kids who were running the mix CD and club circuit game now getting signed to majors. Production values are getting slicker and tunes are gaining crossover appeal, but still […]
Ok, so the song is called Pumped Up Kicks by Foster The People, and the remix is by Butch Clancy. But while that’s all good, neither are the real star here. No, that falls to Marquese Scott and his miraculous Dubstep style. I’d give my right leg to be able to dance like this.
This is a relentlessly crunching tune from UK dubstep producer, Banana Bomber. It just pounds you again and again with three massive drops and a glitchy drum pattern and wicked bassline that can send a crowd mental. The producer is only fifteen years old.
I love this slow, dark drum and bass burn remix by UK dubstep producer Skream of the recent release, Night By Night, by Montreal electro-funk duo, Chromeo. Dave 1 of Chromeo says of the remix: ‘I was confused when I first heard this: all of a sudden, our song sounded like a Bone Thugs record. […]
I don’t know how I stumbled upon this, but it’s fantastic! Totally London and totally futuristic grime, dub step energy. It’s the debut visual feature from director Jonathan Howells and documents an audio visual journey through the margins of urban London, soundtracked by dubstep and grime from the forthcoming Dusk and Blackdown CD, Margins Music.
