Search for Kulez on You Tube and it will soon become apparent that the Zimbabwean born emcee has already packed in so many punchlines and metaphoric imagery that you wonder how he sustained the intensity for over 100 battles.
Looking forward we are set for a debut solo album for 2011. You won’t hear the eerie baritone hollers of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, but the dubstep and d’n’b influence with a hint of grime and a whole load of hip hop lyricism. At 20 years old, still unsigned, no managers, no booking agents or lawyers the kid is fully independent.
Here we have an exclusive mix for Sturban Clothing mixing styles from all genre’s of UK and the odd US urban music artist, and like the Sturban site and clothing brands this mix is raw, earthy, underground and untamed, it’s of the street and for the street – original since the day we dared be different.

Now, CHINA CALLING : CHINESE DUBOCRACY!
“An idea had been growing in my mind” and so I executed it.
I just noticed that I had collated a batch of Dubstep tracks with a Far Eastern flava, Chinese and some Japanese and so I thought, why not, a Dubstep mix with Chinese inflexions (and a little bit of Japanese too).
Put together very quickly as usual, 20 mins prep and 1 hour recording it. In all the rush I forgot to include a couple of tracks, including perhaps my most powerful Chinese Dubstep track, which really pissed me off when I listened back and realized the omissions.
But I ain’t gonna record it again, so there, save it for the next one!
Starts off pretty chilled and gets more aggressive but then chill-essive towards the end!
RECORDED LIVE ON PIONEER CDJ’S 1000 MKII & DJM 600 – ONE CUT/FIRST TAKE & UN-MASTERED!
The Norwegian DJ Yrjan has made a new dubstep mix called Oops, Stepped On Some Bass. Lots of “classic” dubstep tracks!
“This may just be the fastest mix I have ever done. I just threw all the dubstep I knew I hadn’t featured in my previous mix (Grimey!) into a playlist – along with all the new stuff I’d gotten – and took it from there. Five hours later it was finished, and this is the result. Overall I’m very happy with the pacing and the track selection, though some of the tracks are a bit on the older side. I hope fans of dubstep won’t hold that against me and that they aren’t too sick of these tracks already.”

A little explanation of dubstep we picked up along with a cracking link if you wanna listen
Dubstep is a genre of electronic music that has its roots in London’s early 2000s UK garage scene. Musically, dubstep is distinguished by its dark mood, sparse rhythms, and emphasis on bass.
Dubstep rhythms are usually syncopated, and often shuffled or incorporating triplets. The tempo is nearly always in the range of 138-142bpm.

The Tectonic Plates series really starts rolling with this second disc from O.G Dubstep dons Skream and Benga. As far as we can tell, aside from the Magnetic Man project, the pair haven’t appeared on the same 12″ together since 2003’s ‘The Judgement’ on Big Apple, so it’s very interesting to compare and contrast the developments in their style as both producers have flourished into fully fledged production heroes in their own right. Skream’s ‘Trapped In A Dark Bubble’ couldn’t be considered as anything less than cutting edge dubstep. The skulking halfstep rhythm is still typically Skream, but the sound design has moved on fathoms since their Big Apple tracks, and is now primed with an electrostatic coating of blinding brilliance that reaches from the shiny high end frequencies down to the controlled pressure of his rock solid subs with a superior precision rarely touched by anyone else. While Skream has been polishing his sound into a buff instrument of power, his Dubstep bruvva-from-a-different-mother Benga has been working further into his groove, perfecting the art of swing with similarly high productions levels applied with a devilishly innate feel for kinky syncopations. His ‘Technocal’ cut is essentially a swung techno track produced at 138bpm, made for the rave with subtly fluctuating synth licks balanced with the accuracy and tempered energy levels of an experienced techno producer. As long as the pair keep vibing off each other and maintain the level of friendly competition they have for the last 7-8 years, they’ll be churning out heavyweights like this for a time to come.

Interview with dubstep artist Hatcha plus there’s a nice little link at the bottom(on original interview) for you to download a dubstep mix he did for ATM
“Sitting there flicking through tunes, picking out ones that were all similar, I started piecing all these together into sets and at the same time, while I’m doing that you’ve got Benga and Skream bringing their own interpretation of it. So yeah, I was piecing together everyone’s stuff and trying to form something.” That ‘something’ turned out to be dubstep.
Hatcha’s story is a classic one: a young gun calls up a pirate and through shear chops gets a set DJ playing garage on south London pirate. A job behind the counter of the legendary Big Apple Record shop in Croydon fuels his obsession for the dark garage coming from the likes of EL-B, Zed Bias, Oris Jay, Arwork and Benny Ill. A flock of local, freakishly in tune, yet brutally raw producers feed their latest creation to him, which he in turn channels through a residency at new underground night Forward, providing the perfect platform to forge the nascent sound of esoteric, no frills garage coined dubstep.
in depth interview with dubstep’s Kode9 from the Hyperdub label
I came across this Q&A: Kode9 by Philip Sherburne its pretty lengthy and deep but well worth a read, that is of course if you are interested in dubstep or should i say D-step, Hyperdub, swung beats, skippy hi-hats, an emphasis on nimble snares, rim-shots and Kode9 himself read on. It is interesting stuff!!!
It’s not an exaggeration to say that UK “bass music” — that shifting configuration of subgenres spanning UK garage, grime, dubstep, funky and still more, nameless styles — simply wouldn’t be the same without the existence of the Hyperdub label. Run by Steve Goodman (aka Kode9), Hyperdub has had its greatest success with Burial, whose ghostly, uncanny tracks hover wraithlike at the margins of genre, broadcasting vintage 2step rhythms through an ambient fog suggestive of William Basinski’s melancholic explorations.
