Everyone knows this. A-side is one of the seminal dubstep tunes from, one could say, the third wave of dubstep (first wave being Hatcha and co. evolving out of dark garage with the second wave being the more typical half step Loefah, DMZ sounds, third wave being this permutation of people who came up going to DMZ nights and making their own weird take on it). It's dubstep from when dubstep meant something new, experimental, fresh, and when it pushed the edges of bass heavy dance music.

There's a formula for dubstep now and it's a shame bc this was really the peak of the genre, when you could have this or James Blake and a Mala or Coki tune fit in well together, all pushing things forward.

when the phrase dubstep was coined garage was the dominant sound in the mix(el-b/Benny Ill)
shortly after the next generation brought the 138-142 low end experimental sounds.I do agree alot artist who are doing house & techno at 140bpm is not dubstep.No geezer rant just my opinion & I Love this tune.

It is music. And it's great. The genre doesn't matter.

As you can all see, the "dubstep" label became really confusing circa 2009. Right now it is more or less clear that "dubstep" calls memories of dubby tracks like the first Skream, Kode9 tracks or the wobbly ones from much more famous people, but the uk garage return was so disorienting that the audience and the critics forgot that this genre ever existed before. And this is what happened around 2009 and 2010: the return of the purest UK subgeneres, little by little, first uk-garage/2step , then oldschool breaks, and then some jumped to techno, others to house, others to jungle/drum n bass. Nostalgia all around.

Of course it was a gradual thing (the first Burial album was from 2007, and there are nods everywhere of the style in underground releases from Germany and Uk during the 00s). But this is one of the standout releases, just because it gathered everything that was floating around and put it in two tracks, two absolutely wonderful fantastic dreamy tracks full of London syncopation, where you could draw lines to Mad Mike moody tracks, Bukem old drum n bass, Todd Edwards use of samples, Bugz use of rhythms. And a musicality that my God Spaghetti Monster has reappeared only a few times: "Hyph Mngo" is the famous one, but the hooks in "Wet Look", the bridge, the use of "I'm falling and I can't turn back!" is pure inspiration. Masterpiece of a release, and something that reminds me of the two years I had more fun with electronic music.

to the guys below me, you are exactly doing that what producers don't want, they don't want to get pinned to a specific genre. what's even the point? just enjoy the music

Dubstep should just mean 135-145 beats per minute and a prominent baseline.

this -is- dubstep, clearly,,, (not that a lot of producers actually like to pigeon hole their music into genres, they dont really care in my experience)

go revise ur knowledge on the history and varied sound of dubstep before you go misinforming ppl plz thank u
