@m3nn0 I was introduced to dubstep by the likes of Excision & Datsik and here I am, looking for James Blake & Mala records.

It couldn't be an introduction. Dubstep is broader than this. It's a very good one, yes.
The best introduction would be to show the roots, true dub from Jamaica. It's there that drum and bass music was created at first. Hero's as King Tubby, Scratch Perry, Scientist, Jammy and so on have introduced the world with the layering of sounds and instruments. And especially the technique of suggestion of sounds because of silence and intervals. Similar uses of interuption inspired by these have not only created dubstep but also Techno, Jungle/Drum'n'Bass, minimal and so many other dance music. It is here, with reggae and dub, where a journey should begin. You will hear the essence of dubstep already implemented in the way the producers stepped in the proces of music making to have actual influence on the music itself, like a musician. It was first Phil Spector who created his wall of sound. But it were the Jamaicans a couple of years later who inveted dubbing to the fullest and through that remixing. Reggae is all about the bass and the drum, typical to the Jamaican ghetto music. It's the core of life as the beat from the heart. Rhythms from the ghetto, melodies from the street, as Scratch describes it. They knew this from the start and through other musical styles and now dubstep the rest of the world is up to this structuring.

James Blake.

What can I say? This 22 year old Londoner drew me towards dubstep and bass music itself, I guess he's the 'Burial' of 2010 for me. It's here that I learnt that dubstep isn't all about the hard hitting 'drops' (what I despised of it mind you) and wobble.

All four EPs and the 'Limit To Your Love' single are perfect to introduce someone to dubstep.

I can't say too much about his album. It was as disappointing as Daft Punk's 'Human After All' to say the least.
