    I don't see a lot of music threads around here, but I was wondering if there were any other appreciators of dubstep/wonky/glitch-hop/fat beats out there. Also, I'd like to break the stereotype that all gay dudes listen to is bubblegum pop and Cher because that is not true. Some shit I dig:

    Scuba - Three Sided Shape
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRWIzV51Z1E
    His whole Triangulation album makes me nut.

    Mount Kimbie - Maybes
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hTN19x1DyM
    I listened to this track a while back and now with their Crooks & Lovers album out they're straight blown up (though honestly I think their EPs are a lot better than the album).

    And then there's the usual suspects of Flying Lotus, Burial, Samiyam, etc. Anyway, I'm just making this thread so y'all can post your favorite music that falls within this vein/influences this kind of stuff.

    Let's talk beats.

    HOOLLLY SHIT, that's some heavy ass dubstep. The Bar9 remix of Foreign Beggars blew my fucking mind (good vid too). Keep posting, 'cause that shit is quality.

    Chase n' Status are cool. Especially their stuff with Plan B.
    Like me a bit of Grime, too (as well as Indie and House, lol).

    Didn't Dubstep used to be called UK Garage, back in the day?

    I'm very happy to see this. Do any of you guys produce your own dubstep? I've made a few tracks in the past and have had a few 320s played in the UK a few years back.

    To be honest, I've never really heard of any of those genres, but after listening, I think I like it. :eek: Thanks!

    My impression of UK garage is that it's more a blend of house with drum n' bass beats, whereas dubstep has got that wobbly emphasis on the off-beat. Not too sure though, as I never really got into garage.

    wow..OK I may seem incredibly UN-hip for saying this but I don't get it. Like I REALLY don't get it. This music is inoffensive which is good, I'm glad it's not glorifying bitches n ho's and all that, but I soooo don't get the artyst electronic noises thing. I am not in any way putting you guys down, I mean really to each his own, but I just dont get it. This sounds like new age music with a little but of a drum beat to it. Maybe I'm missing something. :wink:

    dubstep is good, though in some instances when listening to dj mixes, i find it to be very anti-climactic.... like a really disappointing build-up.... i personally really dig liquid funk.... (ie: ben sage, high contrast, etc....) it has the energy of drum and bass with the positivity of trance, and i find it's also highly musical as opposed to experimental.... y'all should check out my favourite dj of this genre... his name is aaron simpson, and he can be found here:

    Aaron Simpson - The Mix Blog - Bass Music

    he's actually getting in to mixing dubstep now himself, but started as a trance dj, moved on to liquid funk, and is broadening his horizons once again with dubstep.... i personally recommend that you download his 'dn'b mix 005'.... OUTSTANDING!!!! the mixing is seamless, and he never mixes a track too long so as to bring the energy to a plateau.... it's like a 75 minute-long build-up.... enjoy kids!

    Well surprisingly I DO like rave and techno though the more dance oriented versions and less "house". I like hip hop, rap, heavy metal, rock, just about everything. I guess this stuff just doesnt resonate with me..it just sounds like..sounds.. lol

    Dubstep seems to be more influenced from Drum & Bass/Jungle. The tempos are the same, minus the heavily sampled Amen Break in between the kick drums. Plus the atmospheres, textures and dependence of Hip-Hop/Ragga samples are very similar. Although it's a genre I love listening to at times, it's not one that I play a lot since I don't know much about the scene or the producers who create the music. UK Garage always reminded me of stripped down, DJ Icey breakbeats that aren't as dark.

    I'm a dedicated House music fanatic... more into Tribal & Tech House, but literally any 4-on-4 will do for me except stadium style trance. I need my basslines and rhythms to move to. :)

    Honestly, you have to hear Dubstep on a good system with adequate subs to kind of get the full effect. I think it would make a lot more sense to you then, seaside.

    I think perhaps that might be the problem.

    OK Apollo I'm going to put it on loud tomorrow and report back. So if I like hip hop and I like rave but not that more electronic house kinda stuff who do you recommend trying out? Something with more of a beat and less "trance" like...
