Ecuadorian Bass hit the nail on the head!! Vol 2 is in my opinion the best & captures the DUB in Dubstep, oh they wer the days - when it all sounded so fresh - Vol 9 is SICK & shows that things change but still stay true 2 the original format.

I remember in 2005 when I used to go to Blackmarket records nearly every day and ask if there was any new Dubstep. Youngsta just worked Thursdays and Fridays (or something like that) and obviously it was his finger on the pulse, but I worked nearby and what better way to spend your breaks than going around Berwick St trying to track down new tunes.
So I'd be there everyday and I'd walk in and go into the basement and have a look on the tiny wall space, which had been given to new Dubstep (as well Breakstep, Breaks and the odd piece of Grime) releases. And I'd ask for any new stuff and for months on end new stuff would trickle in. I'd get maybe 3 or 4 new singles a week, but then other weeks there'd be nothing new.
Oh how things have changed.
Anyway the point I'm making is that when this CD came out, nearly every track on this mix was exclusive and hadn't been released yet. You could hear them played out at FWD and DMZ, but if you wanted to own them you simply had to be patient, or bug the hell out of poor Youngsta every week at Blackmarket.
Youngsta selects and mixes with the precision and skill of a perfectionist. No beat juggling or quick fire mixes like he has been known to pull off at FWD. This mix is a perfect reflection of the music on display. You have to remember this was a time when half step, bass lurchers weren't viewed as a bad thing. The 'dub' of the newly christened genre is more obvious here as the tunes ride the enormous glaciers of bass and the drums and riddims echo and reverberate within the cavernous expanses that were once haunted by Lee 'Scratch' Perry and King Tubby.
Skream and D1's tunes are more overtly electronic with ebbing and flowing synths, arpeggios and frequencies that feel haunted by the spectres of Phuture's acid workouts: dark, growing and pulsing.
It's hard to have a favourite Dubstep Allstars mix as they do their job properly, in that they showcase and offer the listener a unique take on a (now) multifaceted genre through the ears of an individual DJ. But the first three are the ones I listen to the most and this one in particular really does capture the otherworldly possibilities that were offered when the genre was still in its early stages (infancy of sorts).
