This is Dubstep 2012
Reviewed by Sadie O., 7/5/12
Dubstep from the UK. All tracks run together, so you can put it on continuous play just like a remix album. Huzzah! It seems that UK Dubstep has become just a tad mainstream – there are some very indie-pop elements. Still lots of gronches and woobles!
Sounds like an FCC on CD 2, track 16.
My faves are CD 1 track 7 and CD 2 track 18.
1. 4:07 *fast, jungle-clubby, high female vocals – 80’s Euro-pop feel.
2. 3:39 ***slow, crowd noises and electronics, beat fades out and back with lots of proper dubsteppy gronches and weebles.
3. 4:48 **slow, sparce, echo-laden thumps and squeebles.
4. 4;34 ***repeated male vocal line intro, then big engine take-off, and gronchy huge fat toads.
5. 3:33 **fast beat, Bowie-esque screenchies. Bit of quiet beebles, then scratchy stuff…
6. 4:41 ***slow buzzy scronches, spoken countdowns. Itchy as mess. Then happy ptangptang dance.
7. 4:34 ****woobles, sinister ambiance, bits of pretty but ominous Max Romeo vocals. (Oddly, he sounds a bit like David Bowie…)

8. 4:07 ***wheeze, slow boops, extremely distorted and alarming vocals, woobles.
9. 3:52 **slow lopsided beat, chimey things. Almost kinda pretty.
10. 4:34 **woozzes, female vocals. Very Euro-80’s.
11. 3:40 ***slow, EXTREMELY metallic. Not like Heavy Metal, like chromium.
12. 4:06 **slow and fuzzy. Rumbles, good bedtime music.
13. 3:54 **slow, hints of reggae riddim way back in the mix, tiny bits of fractured vocals.
14. 2:58 ***similar, but with more scronches. I think. Some Dancehall horns, too.
15. 3:39 **plinky-bats, occasionally odd female vocals. Nice little bouncy beat.
16. 4:07 ***slow, sparce, echo-laden, whooobly. I’m pretty sure they’re friendly giants, but I’m not going to pet them. Hm… bit of 6 Million Dollar Man?
17. 2:58 ***double-time beat, rather jaunty. Rubber echoes. I feel like you could almost dance to this.
18. 4:07 **spoken word intro, springs. Slow, sparce, woobles. Rather tinny.
19. 3:39 ***slow, kinda soulful processed male vocals. Relaxed, quite pleasant. In a woobly kinda way… Modulates at the end.
20. 4:14 **slow piano and groovy pina colada swing. Birdcalls, but otherwise disturbingly normal for a Lee Scratch Perry number. Beat and electronics fade out, very soft and sparce ending.
1. 4:21 *low, mellow piano opening, slow piano-based Brit-indie-pop turning into electronic club thump.
2. 4:34 *midtempo swirling electronics, high female pop vocals. Gets dubsteppier (and better) as it goes along…
3. 5:02 **slow, blatty, ominous… Bits of male speaking, terrible dramatic. Woofy noises, to complement the blats.
4. 4:07 **slow one-drop, flute-y sounds, bongos.
5. 3:12 ***slow one-drop with male chanting and serious woobles. Last half a minute goes all wimpy.
6. 4:33 *slow, alt-pop vocals. goes floaty-trancey midway through.
7. 3:47 ***rusty gates with insects perched on them. Rather plinky and sweet.
8. 2:52 ***tough vocal bits, slow swingy syncopated beat, scratchy woobles. Nice.
9. 4:34 ***metallic bangs and woobles. False ending a minute from end.
10. 3:39 ***slow, downbeat, hints of crickets. Gets quite wistful…
11. 4:07 *farfisa arpeggios, breathy female vocals with pitch correction… A bit cinematic, then trance-y. Actual ending!
12. 4:34 **slow, a bit metallic, pretty and relatively non-processed female vocals. Rather nice contrast. Tweety/chirpy at end.
13. 3:39 ***that’s more like it! Metal Machine Music with a one-drop beat and woobly bits.
14. 3:39 **disco noises and cute little syncopations. Pretty chimes in second half of song.
15. 4:35 ***slow, with chance of woobles.
16. 3:53 FCC – least, it sounds like “fuckin” **slow and very plodding, squoops and tiny bits of vocals.
17. 3:22 ***ponderous with a bit of glitch, growly things and squeaky things.
18. 3:55 ****loud and very metallic and skreeky. Large and rather threatening. It’s laughing at you. Can you tell?
19. 3:13 ***slow and rather quiet, with an ALARMING AIR OF MENACE. Um.
20. 3:45 *sweeping orchestral electronics, pretty, echo-y, very high female vocals.
