Dubstep purists will probably cry out in anger for my even posting this, let alone suggesting it is dubstep. At the risk of ‘demeaning’ myself however, I would like to share this as part of what will be a concerted effort in 2011 to trick every person I talk to about music in to liking at least some dubstep. I thought it was some kind of kitchy gimmick when JFK said just such a thing when he and Al-P released Fist of God, but I really respect what they tried to do and I think it’s a worthwhile effort.
Dubstep is just a great format for music – the tempo is fun, and you can do cool things with syncopation and the beat structure that I think will push hip hop and other genres forward this year.
