It is under the same umbrella: Electronic music.

Not techno.

That version of the guide is old and deprecated and full of puerile, juvenile comments. There are a lot of things wrong with it and I've since disowned it. And it doesn't have dubstep -- it was last updated in 2003 (dubstep didn't exist until 2005).

I'm in the process of making a new one. It's going to be ten times larger. If you (or anyone else) is interested in wanting to know when it will be released, I've recently set up a Twitter changelog for the new guide. It will chronicle the development cycle and other such things.

This. The Netherlands has a reputation in the US as being easy going and liberal, based solely on their tolerance of private drug use and prostitution. But they're actually extremely conservative in a lot of odd ways. They just have a different way of being conservative.

I've been cK1'ing to Aphex since the mid 90's. I Think Skrillex is awesome stuff.

No, seriously. They're related by genre, in as much as the Twin's 'genre' is self-defining, spanning styles from acid/breakbeat rave right up to the point where you can audibly trace the evolution of the musicalDNA of dubstep, just by listening. Dubstep, much like it's tougher older brother Techstep, have roots in tecno, D&B, Jungle, rave and acid, but has dancehall reggae and dub chromosomes stitched in there.

Think Kraftwerk and Buju Banton's aspergers lovechild. Skrillex. pass the cK1, mate.

uttertosh: then you know sweet fark all about dubstep. Next.


Dubstep came from the UK Garage scene. It's direct antecedent was 2-step. In the early period they called it dark garage..... it had a lot of bass, and yes, a lot of wub (hence the name, though it didn't directly have anything to do with Jamaican dub proper, it's like a step-cousin). It was a rubbery liquid sound that seemed to really find favor with users of disassociatives, especially Ketamine (it makes your legs rubbery, which is perfect for that kind of music).

After about 2006 it started picking up influences (and a lot of influences came from dubstep -- for instance, grime), the most direct influence coming from Ed Bangar-style filthy, glitchy squealing electro house (which was spawned off of early 00s Swedish House), and Tiger Beat Records style Glitch house cf. Kid606 which was ONLY popular because Vice Magazine wrote about it a lot so all their shows kept attracting an unhealthy clientele of hipsters.

Around about 2008, these twin forces -- glitch and electro house -- grabbed dubstep, dragged it behind an alleyway and violently anal raped it no less than 23 times. In the process, Dubstep dropped the bass, jacked up the mid range (primarily because most people's listening devices are earbuds or crappy laptop speakers so what's the point delivering bass they can't hear), kept the wub but applied it to screeching, squelching synth lines and this attracted the unsavory frathouse crowd who were already into the electro stuff anyway....and before long they were calling this mutant offspring "brostep" which is, in no uncertain terms, absolutely hideous. And then Skrillex comes along, harkening the death of dubstep, at least in the underground.

There. Now fark off and stop polluting the threat with your ignorant drivel.

i had no idea you are the same dude that made the music guide.

first off, thank you for introducing me to:

amanda lear - follow me
the ones - flawless

i'm a big fan of disco and french house.

whenever i hit up a dubstep room on turntable.fm i always play todd edwards. it typically ends well.

mj cole's remix of "i might be" usually works too. i prefer smooth big bass rather than that abrasive saw bass shiat. looking at you, skrillex.

i could discuss all the nuances for hours, but i should probably sleep soon.

in short, this guy knows what he's talking about. fellow farkers listen up.

You'll be happy to know that the new guide will not be in Flash. It will be responsive design and html5 compliant so it will work on all devices.

I'm toying with the idea of making it an app, but it would have to be released for free. I cannot profit off something that is, essentially, an arrogant copyright infringement of epic proportions (mu mu).

But since I'm here, why don't you just tell me what you're into and I'll namedrop everyone I know who fits that profile.

If you just listened to skrillex and said "Ok, WTF is all that screeching and bumping?" then you might want to ease yourself into into the dubstep sound with something that is a dubstep remix or dubstep enhanced

For a pop sound try: Ellie Goulding Lights (Bassnectar Remix)

I hate to do this for you haters out there, but dubstep is the grunge invasion of digital music, and skrillex can be likened to nirvana for bringing it to the mainstream (although i think some might argue that dedmau5e did it, but he would argue angrily with you about that) and being the most rough around the edges with the sound...

I agree with the dull part, but the silver lining will be when the fans discover or create better music. Maybe dub step is like an evolutionary move backwards that allows for a new punctuated jump forward that wouldn't have happened otherwise.

Or maybe it'll just fade to be some 60 year olds guilty pleasure in 40 years.

I like how even country music is stealing from electronic music now. My new job blasts country all day and I heard Mumford and Sons "I will wait" for the first time the other day.

Take the drums out and replace it with a unce-unce beat, and its a trance anthem suitable for any rave..

Alright, well the tricky part is all these acts you listed were doing different music at different points in their careers. Chicane is primarily a trance/pop act but tracks like Saltwater and Offshore -- his biggest hits -- are pure Balearic bliss (which isn't so much a genre as it is a mood). You probably already have those.

Same with Daft Punk. I like to call their Homework era "Chicago House Daft Punk", their Discovery era "New York Garage Daft Punk" and their Human After All era "Detroit Electro Daft Punk"... so it depends whether you stand on the disco loop side of things or the robot rock side of things. And Bill Laswell has been producing music for 30 years. I'm afraid you're going to have to be more specific.

Same with Autechre, "some" Orb... IDM/ambient/trance, eh? Hmmm.... I don't know how deep your knowledge of these genres are, so if I go off about some act you already know about, please excuse my condescension. I just want to cover all the bases. I will assume that you have at least a rudimentary level of knowledge so I won't just be obvious and pick everything off Warp Records (I trust you have Richard D. James' Selected Ambient Works already, right?). I'm all about finding hidden and obscure stuff that's often overlooked.

If you don't mind oldskool stuff, and don't mind something interesting and somewhat avant-garde, give Manuel Göttsching - E2-E4 a test spin. It's from the early 80s but incredibly ahead of its time and it inspired a lot of the early Detroit and Ambient guys. That is, if you trust my expertise.

Moving forward, I recommend Boards of Canada, especially Music Has the Right to Children, their seminal 97 analog ambient techno masterpiece. They use genuine oldskool analog synths (like, from the 70s) in their work, to give it a very nostalgia feel. Their follow up, Geogaddi is more IDM than ambient if you like the more abrasive Squarepusher side of things. And their last album, The Campfire Headphase, returns to their ambient techno roots and uses a lot of organic instrumentation especially acoustic guitar. I once listened to one of their tracks, Peacock Tail, nonstop for 7 straight hours at work, just looping it over and over again. It was one of those kind of days.

(if you already know about the Boards disregard everything I just said).

Moving forward into more pure downtempo and ambient, I can not push this guy enough: Solar Fields. This guy has yet to make a bad track so pick any album at random and it's good (but get all of them, really. I especially recommend Movements). Everything he touches is solid gold. He is primarily the reason why forensic montages in crime shows always have that downtempo, faux-IDM background music. It's not his (they actually have an in-house producer to do it), but its a total style-biter.

What else? Oh yeah: Ulrich Schnauss. Ambient breaks. Good breakup music (that is, if you want to revel in your misery).... this is utterly beautiful.

Do you like the Psy scene at all (no, not the Korean dork.... psychedelic trance...formerly goa)? It's all about Hindu and Middle Eastern sounds and references which you might be into if you like Talvin Singh. The Psy scene has been making some EXCELLENT downtempo the last 10 years, and I won't list the easy ones like Shpongle and go straight to my personal fav: Asura! I recommend 360. Give it a try, and if you like it, get more.

Speedy J - The G Spot. Mostly a techno and acid album, but I like his Fill series for some great ambient goodness.

Banco de Gaia. A legend in the ambient scene. Kind of hit or miss sometimes, I prefer his older stuff, but feel free to explore at your leisure.

I guess that's enough for now. If you don't like any of these or it isn't what you're looking for, come back to me with more info and we'll go further and deeper. We've only scratched the surface here. I also don't want you to take everything I say as gospel. These are all suggestions, but you can use the Discogs Recommendations panel to find other similar sounding artists and labels, and I fully encourage you to do this. Go exploring! Find some buried treasure!! Music isn't about accepting whatever comes down the pipe of whatever station you're on, it's about going off on your own, finding your own heroes, do some research, branch out, search for new moods, new styles and new ideas.

I hope this helps. Reply if you have any questions or comments.
