I would heartily recommend Benga's first release 'Newstep' as a good example of what to expect from the Dubstep genre.

Burial posted on his blog today that he is in fact William Bevan, complete with photo and a bit about how he just wants to make tunes.

Unsurprising that he's basically just a skinny white guy from London. Would've been more interesting if he'd turned out to be Thom Yorke or whoever (plus the Independent outed him months ago anyway).

Bumping this, I was hoping there'd be a much bigger Dubstep scene here, but it seems like this stuff isn't much more popular in NYC than it was on the west coast (especially SF). Anyway, I'm seeing The Bug with Warrior Queen, 6Blocc, and possibly Darkstar soon, so I'm excited about that. Not to mention the Trouble & Bass guys are throwing a couple parties, although it seems like they've kind of moved on to other genres (Bassline, Funky House, etc.).

Also saw Flying Lotus a couple nights ago, and if you get the chance, see him! Listening to his recorded stuff I thought his show was going to be pretty laid back, but aside from some live stuff he did on his laptop, most of his set was just him DJing Dubstep (a lot of it I didn't recognize, but I did pick out some Kode9, Milanese, and some other stuff). Really awesome.

I've decided, that the best combination in British music today would be if Burial produced George Micheals next album.

Just came across some disgusting sounds, will take the opportunity to share some dubstep links

Initially unsure where to put this but it's generally dubby 2-step type music.. Blackdown is a London-based part-time producer of eclectic sub-low madness infamous for ground-breaking collaborations on the grime scene, and beyond, in recent years; his blog is my go to for weighty interviews and cool analysis, he ALSO does Pitchfork's monthly grime n' dubstep feature).

If this is starting to sound like a plug, sorry, but I was just blown away by this video... and I know there are people on here who'd take fancy to a dubstep/trip-grime? concept record, so here's the link to the accompanying film (tried to embed but to no avail) - let if buffer, it's HD.

Below, a manifesto for this new Dusk and Blackdown record:

''Beyond the corporate finance of the City, the anodyne bars of the West End and the affluent riches out west, there is another London. Head out at sunset to the edges and just watch. Listen. As the sun drops, soon a different city emerges, a mesh of disparate groups and communities, visible but unseen, vocal - in countless vibrant accents, languages and dialects - but unheard, vital but unrecognised by the centre.

By night, the city comes alive with sound: raw slang, dialects, clanking trains, sub bass waves and rebel radio frequencies. This album is a reflection of these places, people, voices and cultures, a snapshot of the forgotten edges of a city at dusk: intense, in technicolour, in transition but forever an inspiration.

Welcome to “Margins Music.”

Keysound Video presents Margins Music is the debut visual feature from Blackdown and director Jonathan Howells.

It documents an audio visual journey through the margins of urban London, soundtracked by dubstep and grime from the forthcoming Dusk + Blackdown CD, "Margins Music" out August 18th 2008 on Keysound Recordings.

It features grime MC Durrty Goodz, singer Farrah and a cameo from Blackdown himself and was shot on location on the edges of London, including Southall, Green Lanes, the Isle of Dogs and Edmonton.

London: it's just a mundane city...''
