Still not entirely my thing, but I guess it's not bad. Anyone else got some stuff I'd like from this genre?
Anything Joker touches is golden.





Also, some others...





Dubstep is popular for me because it's everything I've always wanted from electronic music. It's heavy with filthy ass beats and just gets me rocking, no matter what. None of that pretentious be-bop cliche techno stuff involved.

Oh yeah and BASS, BASS, AND MORE ****ING DIRTY BASS!!!!

Although I do like Burial they are rarely ( or him in this case) rarely talked off in Dubstep terms and reside in the trip hop/ambient 2 step genre.

Dubstep is generally viewed as having heavy basslines that are generated electronically as opposed to organically with basic drum tracks but he is still a great entry but then again the emphasis is sometimes on the very nature of Dub which was also about reverb and echo with sporadic basslines

If you want something similar to Burial, then I definitely recommend Clubroot:



As for recommendations for Dubstep and the claim that it's it's the 'coolness' factor. Well I can understand that in a way as it's a new thing but over here in the U.K it's virtually been and gone due to the fickle and transient nature of Electronica here so only the tunes with 'big' sounds may be what people are looking for and not the fact that the scene has begun to move on already.

I can only really recommend the usual suspects from here as in:

Kode 9 & The Spaceape:

Benga:



Bands like:
2562
Disrupt
Distance
Dub Terror
Milanese
The Bug
have some great tracks but a solid album seems to be elusive.

Jackhammer, you resolved a lot of my confusion regarding the genre. I went on a big dubstep hunting spree after hearing Burial for the first time about 6 months ago, and I couldn't get over how much I hated the synthetic, non-organic, agressive bass of everything I ran into. That Clubroot would have placated me for a while. I loved it. Now I'm gonna' explore some 2-step for a while.

I personally like a lot of the synthetic bass sound as I like a lot of Electronica and Dance but I know exactly where you are coming from as Burial can give a false representation of the genre.

The Burial/Four Tet track posted earlier (I'm sure It was first mentioned in one of my journal posts) is probably more what you are looking for.

Canwllcorfe - those we're some pretty dead on suggestions. You've helped me out a lot.
