Yeah there are threads of that in it.

Reminds me of a whole bunch of other stuff too though, and strangely all of it New Zealand stuff, like
Jess Chambers' stuff with Module and Rhian Sheehan, and Hollie Smith's stuff on the Loop-OE album a
few years back.

Not sure what I'll settle on for rating.

From the first paragraph of your review, it seems like you're not really familiar with what's known as "dubstep" today. HOWEVER, if you are and have chosen to omit it from your understanding of the genre, I support you 100%.

It's like telling a raging bull he is not beef.

I wasn't saying he doesn't know, I don't think this new shit is "dubstep" either, but millions of college kids like to call it that. No insult intended!

Gotcha man, brostep, filthstep, devstep, dubstep, it's all the same.

If people don't like this album too much it's probably because their bass isn't booming js

On a completely different note, where is all the real dubstep being made these days anyway? I love burial, and this album sounds pretty good so far, where's the rest of this stuff hiding?

"It's like telling a raging bull he is not beef."

Alright, since I seem to have made an ass of myself here, I'll just rephrase what I said. Where does that new stuff fall into the mix here, is it dubstep, is it not, does it deserve to be considered? Because there's sure a lot of it, and it's pretty widely called dubstep.

By new stuff are you referring to the likes of:

because that's still dubstep. It's just one aspect of it that evolved out of the original template

Yeah, that's the stuff. It just seems so "off" from the spirit of things like this. These releases seem to be about subtlety and atmosphere, while the popular shit seems to say "FUCK IT, MORE WOBBLY BASS". I'm nothing close to an expert on the origins of dubstep, but I would like to think that Burial and Submotion Orchestra are doing things more true to the genre?
