Dubfluencial 7 was released towards the end of summer 09. With Dubstep starting to really take a turn for the filthiest and Ego Thieves firmly on the map, I decided to ramp things up and include tracks from the likes of now legends Eddie K, one of my favorite tracks of all time ‘Bassbin’ by Kromestar and introduced the world to ‘Panic’ by 16bit.
This mix really started to show where the energy in Dubstep was at during that year and that the American producers were really starting to get involved too and create their own sounds.
This obviously came with a huge amount of controversy, the Dubstep forum members were not happy and people felt like the roots of Dubstep were being lost to cheap wobbles and hard drops.
Progress was hard, the change was inevitable and as I had both Dubfluencial and Dubfluence mixes, I was enjoying both ends of the spectrum and the sounds and music being created were really some of the best dance music had ever seen.
