SO DEEP IT'S PICKED UP ON RADIOS IN TUNNELS...
Dubstep is absolutely killing right now, building steam with a tremendous surge of creative output from an ever wider roster of heads getting involved from production, to DJing, to promoting, to reporting. It's difficult to even keep track of all the tremors being felt underground right now, but the likelyhood of a seismic thrust forward into dubstep's next wave seems great at the moment.
The surest sign of this would have to be the reemergence of the almighty DJ Hatcha, whose recent Rinse FM sets
, and especially his mammoth new mix CD
, boast so many new dubs that the global dubstep massive will be waiting years to come for most of them to see the light of day... DJ Hatcha Practice Hours CDDJ Hatcha, Rinse FM June 8, 2005Shouts to blackdown and dubway for hostingOther exciting things happening on the dubstep front right now...
