30 minutes of Gantz

A Bass Education

This week’s 30 Minutes of Bass Education feature documents an artist who's brought a more global sound to dubstep. In the many countries where the sound's producers and fans are found, 'regional' dubstep seems to balance its original values and the more underground sounds that are found locally....

30 minutes of Kahn

A Bass Education

In our last feature, we did our best to explain the significance of the Bristolian scene and the impact it had on Peverelist’s musical heritage. As for the musician we’re paying homage to in #28, the 'Bristol sound' is simply part of the greater story. Kahn breathes musicality, and living in Bristol...

30 minutes of Peverelist

A Bass Education

Generally speaking, we attribute the birth of the dubstep genre to South London. One of the sound's earliest adopters, however, was Bristol - nurturing and raising the newborn UK underground offspring like a teacher does with a student or parent with child. And while it's hard to capture the phenomenon...

30 minutes of Commodo

A Bass Education

Our goal is to revive the series to the same level, frequency and spirit as in previous years - we've no good excuse as to why it's taken so long to get #26 out but the upside of...

30 Minutes of Von D

A Bass Education

After an (unintended) leave of absence, our 30 Minutes of Bass Education series is back - and with an extra special unique addition to the archive this week.

30 Minutes of Rusko

A Bass Education

There’s very few people in our scene who can ignore the importance and influence that Rusko has had on dubstep. And we don't say that lightly. Chris Mercer is a phenomenon who's personally responsible for shaping many of the scattered subgenres in electronic music throughout his musical...

30 Minutes of Caspa

A Bass Education

Gary McCann has always had a license for dubplates. The producer grew up in a family of music enthusiasts; his father and two brothers were record collector. You’d imagine this would inspire the young Gary into record collecting as well - but his childhood ambitions were wildly different. Gary...

30 minutes of DJ Heny G

A Bass Education

In our opinion, Malcolm Gustave may be one of the most overlooked DJs and producers from the early days of dubstep through to today, with the sound's global following. His continued efforts in pushing the underground sound make him one of the true dubstep originators. Growing up in West London,...

30 minutes of Matty G

A Bass Education

It’s been suggested, on more than one occasion, that the introduction of dubstep into the United States resulted in a (perceived) ‘decay’ of the true sound. As is always the case, this is not entirely true. California-bred Matthew Gonsalves was one of the first Stateside producers to pick up...

30 Minutes of Kryptic Minds

A Bass Education

The (relatively) recent demise of Kryptic Minds resulted in dubstep’s latest existential crisis - similar to the one caused by Brett Bigden and Simon Shreeve’s arrival into the 140bpm arena. Their take on the 140 sound, moulded by founding father Loefah and influential tastemaker Youngsta, brought a...
