There are a lot of musically interesting things happening in dubstep and it's a genre that is very expansive.

Talking of Trip-Hop. Do you think releases like Tricky's Maxinquaye and Massive Attack's Mezzanine are possibly the first dubstep albums? Although the sound is obviously different now, if you listen to those albums you can hear that dark ambience underpinning it all.

Another little tip is to search for Dubstep club mixes (which are usually legal) and you get to hear so much underground stuff and they are usually taken straight off the master desk so are good quality.

Kode 9 & the Apespace has a bigger Reggae vibe than people like Burial.
