right now, dubstep is hot. whether people will admit it or not, this new movement of bass driven music is taking raves and clubs by the neck and shaking them up and down. as with any movement, there is alot of bullshit and bastardizing within. many djs play sets that consist of songs that are basically jump up dnb produced at 140 bpm. but while that may be a majority, there is still a considerable lot of producers putting out incredible music that is progressing electronic dance music to new levels. now my question to you is, who do you think is forging new ground and will influence electronic producers for years to come? keep in mind, many producers are making good "of the moment" music, while others seek to create music that will stand the test of time. let's discuss who those people might be.

my votes are on these guys. i know they are some of the biggest names in dubstep, but they are more than deserving of all the hype humankind can summon.

- Mala (very hyped, but very much deserves it. i can see people looking back in ten years and revering him as the organic, spiritual, and incredibly bass heavy saviour of dubstep)

- Shackleton (again, very hyped but you can't pin his musical style down to one genre. his use of textures, ethnic rhythms and dark atmospheres give his music a cinematic feel that takes you through a journey while riding over deep, dubby sub bass

- Skream (huge in the dubstep world for a reason. he's prolific like ryan adams: making an incredible amount of quality songs every year)

- 2562 (he has taken what basic channel were good at, and does it even better)

- Burial (creates moods that almost move you to tears; his sampling rivals dj shadow)

- RSD (if lee perry or king tubby produced dubstep, they would be called RSD)

i'm not into dubstep specifically that much... but if i had to pick an influential electronic group or artist, i'd have to say crookers are up there... the new single "no security" sounds like dubstep to me, but not toooo dubstep. like tolerable mainstream dubstep... nothing like this, though:

( which found off a crookers live set -_- )

ehh... what the hell, why not? pretty raw... it was, after all, after the first song..(of the set)

Have you ever seen dub-step being played at a club? No one dances to that shit, and when they do they look like fucking retards (Not including times when people go to see a specific artist play at a club, thats different). I dont particularly like dub-step, but there is no doubt that there has been a recent surge in its popularity.

Whatever, I am thinking its a fad, but you never know. Give me that jump up dnb shit over dub any day though

hey dude,

If you should tire of Basic Channel then maybe you should listen to Moritz Von Oswald Trio or Move D Namlook..

Burial put out a classic record.. reminds me of Goldie "Timeless" back when it came out. I think King Midas Sound will give Burial a run for the money!

True but it was mostly a UK thing a decade ago. It's only really been significantly noticed here for about 5 years and it's been way overblown for the last 3, reaching it's peak about a year ago. So IMO it qualifies as a fad.

The tragic thing about it is that if these guys lay a bit off the massively compressed bass in favor of a bit more rhythmic complexity then it's actually quite danceable. The shit is 140 BPM and ideally you're supposed to feel that speed once in a while. artists like scuba seem to get it IMO. Hit shit is dubstep but he's got a lot of bouncey tops that keep people moving instead of a having a dancefloor full of zombies.

dubstep is best when mixed back and forth with breakbeat. That's how it supposed to be done. These a-holes that just sit at 140 bpm (while making sound like a boring 70bpm) for 60 straight minutes are worthless.

a fucking men. you are not controlling the crowd every time you wave your arm, so stop pretending like you are.

and it may be that it's been around for a decade, but i know it wasn't being played out here until the later part of this decade. everyone was wobbling to clownstep before that.

and I agree- white club kids and converted junglists are lousy at dancing to dubstep. people are lacking the rhythm to dance to half-time

Jack is right about this. Example given:

http://soundcloud.com/freestylers/freestylers-dj-mix-december-09

This is the Freestylers free mix for December. It is mostly breaks, but has one or two definite dubstep moments that still keep the body moving. It also has some pop-y vocal moments, but is pretty fantastic.

like i keep trying to tell people, dubstep is not (or at least should not be) its own genre. at most, it is a technique that should be used sparingly.

dub step is fun and I actually really enjoy dancing to it, but aside from my burial or caspa/rusko cd, I hardly search out new dub step artists. I actually see Trance coming back big time next year.. big time people..

not that i felt i would ever be coming to her defense... but have you guys even listened to that 2562 album? it's fucking incredible.

Fool, no one dances to that shit.

Saying that dubstep is "Taking raves and clubs by the neck" is the dumbest statement I have heard in a while. The only thing dub-step is taking by the neck is hipsters ipods.

Granted, dubstep sounds great on drugs.... then again, so do most things.
