Devstep

Recently I've seen a lot of people asking for dubstep recs so I decided to make this little list of somewhat essentials that I think would be a great starting point into the various sounds of the genre. From the sonic boom of Excision to the more laid back approach of James Blake, all these artists and albums/EPs are well worth your time. And yes - that Burial guy is on this list
116Bit
Cobra
22562
Unbalance
3Bar 9
Shaolin Style


There's also a rather unfortunate titled mix by Bar 9 that features some great tracks, but also a bonus disc with about a dozen tracks by Bar 9 himself. Shame the mix is called 'Bar 9 In Da Mix'
4Benga
Diary of an Afro Warrior
5Borgore
Borgore Ruined Dubstep (Part 2)


I think this is his best yet
6Boxcutter
Oneiric
7Breakage
Foundation


Mixes dubstep with old school jungle and drum and bass
8Broken Note
Terminal Static
9Burial
Burial


The forgotten album
10Burial
Untrue


The obvious album
11Clubroot
Clubroot
12Clubroot
II - MMX
13Darkstar [UK]
Round Ours


Great bunch of singles, then they made a pop album.....
14Deadboy
U Cheated
15Digital Mystikz
Return II Space
16Distance
My Demons


Fucking paranoid
17Distance
Repercussions


Its a little too sprawling at times (its 18 tracks over 2 discs) which stops me from rating it as highly as 'My Demons' but still well worth a look. Highlights are the foot stomping 'Konkrete', the addictive 'V' and the mysterious trip hop tinged 'Feel Me'
18Downlink
Ignition
19Emalkay
Grimecore Vol. 1
20Excision, Datsik & Flux Pavilion
Boom
21Guido
Anidea
22Headhunter [UK]
Nomad
23Ikonika
Contact, Love, Want, Have
24Ital Tek
Midnight Colour
25James Blake
Klavierwerke EP


Aside from the title track of the CMYK EP this one trumps it - one of the EPs of the year
26Jazzsteppa
Jazzsteppa
27Joker
Kapsize EP
28Joy Orbison
The Shrew Would Have Cushioned The Blow

29Kode9 & The Spaceape
Memories Of The Future
30Kromestar
My Sound
31Kryptic Minds
One Of Us
32Martyn

Apparently not as good as CMYK
34Nero
Requiem
35Optikatechniqua

36Pariah [UK]
Safehouses


EP of the year - also Pitchfork raving about him being the new face of post dubstep = lol
37Rusko
Babylon: Volume 1


I still like his album dammit
38Scuba
A Mutual Antipathy


Prefer this to 'Triangulation' but get that too
39Shackleton
Three EPs
40Skream
Skreamizm: Vol. 1


So his self titled is pretty good, but his Skreamizm series (currently at 5 now) still holds his best material
