Re: **SUBMISSIONS CLOSED** IDMfBT002 - Roots Dubstep
Emerging from depths of dark garage sometime near the turn of the century, Dubstep broke through and splintered into several handfuls of different sounds to become a world phenomenon. In the second installment of the IDMf Beat Tape project we explore the roots of Dubstep, from the early experimental dark garage days to the classic Dubstep sound invented by people like Skream and Benga. We asked IDMf to EXPERIMENT as this is how Dubstep emerged...from a wellspring of experimentation without rules and genre guidelines. The Tape is focused on percussion, tribal riddims, bassweight/deep/subby bass, space, atmosphere, gritty/glitchy synths and wobbles. This isn't yet another modern filthy mid-range synth or dirty electro tune. This is a collection of tunes that go back to those sounds that emerged from the underground and to take them in new directions.
I changed the wording a little bit from that quote of Relic in the OP
