DUBFLUENCE 2 AKA APE.5
The last Dubfluence had a massive reception, so much so it was even published on Japanese super blog Back To Chill and given 4 out of 5 star rating. Some people seem to think Dubstep is now divided, that you either love the hard jump up bass sound which is considered cheesy to some or you love the organic deep sound which is the rightful Dubstep. Im here to show you that is not the case at all. I love both, and i support and follow both.
I wish i could do more Dubfluence mixes but the tracks don’t come thick and fast enough. I will be featuring allot of the producers on these mixes from the likes of Burial, Widdler, Heny G and more. They deserve your support as much as the next. But for the Dubstep ‘community’ to place a stigma on people and portray the scene as you either listen to ‘real’ Dubstep or you don’t is just plain stupid and wrong.
We love all the creativity and will continue to push, promote and support every aspect of it. Dubstep is like any other genre and it will evolve, even if those who created it don’t like it. Instead of moaning and trying to make people feel bad, keep doing your thing and try to educate those instead of slew and discriminate which in turns just divides people and creates hate.
Don’t get caught up in forum snobbery or so called music hierarchy. Whether you love the new Pop sound emerging from Dubstep, or prefer the deeper organic sound as long as you support what you love it shouldn’t matter. If you want to know what the deeper organic sound is, download this mix now to find out 🙂
Also check out this amazing cover (even if we do say so ourselves =] ) that myself and JC Adams from Ape Apparel created. Original illustrations mixed with original ideas has created something special. Watch out for the tiny, very limited edition hard copies coming soon in a brand new competition. And watch out for allot more from JC Adams to come in 2010… be afraid 😉
