|Chonky Dubs, Pt. I|
The love for deep dubstep is severely lacking around here, so I'm out to showcase some of the genre's countless gems, both new and old, in this multi-part list series.
If you scoop the VIP Memebership on the underground dubstep label Version Collective's bandcamp, this hecka girthy plate of 3 nut cracking 140's can be all yours. Actually, that VIP Membership is 3000% worth the reasonable price, and this is just a real nice layer of icing on that bass cake.
This independently released cassette-only album spins an absolutely unique lofi vibe.. think backalley-VHS-martial-arts-movie-soundtrack-meets-classic-deep-dubstep. It's a real thing, and if you do a little digging, there ARE some digital rips out there too.

This 12" off Hotline Recordings is simply an exemplary vinyl-only dubplate that's well worth its weight in wax. Knuckledraggers will be happy to know there's a couple hifi flac rips floating in the bowels of the interweb too.
Let Them/Earths Orbit
Just listen to it. A shitty description by yours truly wouldn't do it justice.
Dubamine's sole LP to date is, in my opinion, one of modern dubstep's high watermarks. Spacey wobbles married to earthy dub sensibilities in perfect balance all the way through. Honestly, if I could only recommend one dubstep release, this would be it. The mon like Dubamine couldn't have picked a better name for this fat brick of excellence.
This 10" off Unity Through Sound is the dubplate to end all dubplates. Find it. Seriously.
Sorrow has been straying from the future garage angle for a while now, and for many fans like me, it's not seen as a bad thing. The dude's production chops and knowledge of 140bpm braggadocio lends itself well to purist dubstep, and with Phantom he once again works in just enough of his trademark pulchritude and creativity to make it stand out on the proverbial shelf.
All three tracks off this timeless Artikal Music release are absolute bangers. You'd be hella remiss to skip this one.
|I'm lazy so I only went 8 deep on this one. It's a far cry for being anything comprehensive but it's only part one. Hopefully some of you fall in love with these gems as much as I did!|
|List gives me mad nostalgia for Deviant. Like 95% of the dubstep I used to listen to came from that dude. Kudos for a great list.|
|Deviant had a big influence on me as well back in the day. Since then, just DJing and obsessively scouring record label catalogues has kept my ear close to the ground.|
|Daaaamn nice dude, will check a bit|
|I'm trusting you here Evok, I'm not too fluent in dub|
|Cool list man, dub's a big blind spot for me, hopefully not for much longer tho (;|
|k compa was sweet and bengal sounds is seeming real good but all i can find is the soundcloud samples. looks like there is no digital release? unless I search for those "digital rips"|
|yeah the Bengal Sound one was only officially released on cassette. And the Hebbe and Commodo ones listed above were vinyl only, but there's some flac rips out there (slsk) sent you a rip ;]|
|Now this is a list|
|its pretty far off lmao|
|4 was really awesome|
|Expecting the classics in part 2|
nice to see a dubstep list
