If you are not familiar with Dubstep, it originated in England in the early 2000’s by a group of producers/dj’s playing around on their laptops, usually making their own versions of dark garage that was already being played at the clubs. Moving quickly to New York, the sound was given a name, dub reggae garage and then dubstep... Dubstep Present to Future Steppa’s Delight is a good introduction to the dubstep phenomenon. With its history in techno and roots, dubstep is innovative with experimental sounds offering something for everyone, whether you are into electronica, dub, hip hop, soul, rock or ska.

Steppa’s Delight features some interesting dubstep artists; Japan’s Goth Trad, who began playing piano at five and was buying Kraftwerk and Prodigy albums in his early teens, he has since released three albums and tours with a fully-fledged live set. Shackleton comes from a punk background and sites the Dead Kennedys as an influence; Blood on my Hands is his offering on Steppa’s Delight and is well worth a listen.
