my word

I HATE DUBSTEP!I was in Tampa, FL. over the weekend and caught Switch(Dubsided) playing at Czar in YBor city. Towards the end of the night he broke out with some dubstep and it was awesome stuff. After the party I head to the car and turn on XM Radio to BBC Radio 1. The Essential Mix was on and it was Rusko's slammin bass heavy set! Now all week I have been tracking down all the information I can on dubstep. I LOVE DUBSTEP!
Urban Fabric - Birmingham, Alabama USA

Stuart Smith, Tunbridge Wells

sick bass, especially at the start. appreciated the crookers/bassmusic influence, but some fell flat to my ears, especially that crookers remix. A lot of quicker electroish songs were out of no where whch I also appreciated but weren't up to the cut of the other dubstep tracks. Hoping for the next song to lock it into context I was a little isappointed the next song didn't take that chance to slam it back to what you're so good at. Sorry to be negative, all in all I was really excited to hear someone pushing the bar and making me do my ugly face over and over and over.. BASS!

I cant believe Radio 1 are giving this airplay, every tune is the same near enough, you cant dance to this, its depressing. How this music has become so well known is completely beyond me. I will look forward to Slam next week instead.
