What got you into dubstep?

Post by treasondub » Thu Aug 12, 2010 4:57 am

I was just curious to see how all you other dubsteppers out there got into and involved in the dubstep community, whether a listener or a producer.
I personally was at a club in sydney and the dj dropped caspa - where's my money (cheesy i know, but still a goodie)
i had never heard dubstep before that. but when the track dropped the whole club vibrated, including my whole body.
thats when i knew i loved dubstep.
What about you?

heard some new sounds id never heard before at an Amon Tobin gig in 07. searched through the internet til i (luckily/accidentally) found it again.

the first track i remember finding was 9ner's "Juggernaut" (no clip on youtube sadly).

midnight request line was one of the first few tracks i heard. i didn't pay that much attention at first, but i loved it. a year later, i started listening to more and more, then in 2008 i bought 2 Technics, an Ecler mixer, 2 Event monitors, and my first vinyls. now i have over 400. woooo!

I bought the first Vex'd album back in '06 out of sheer curiosity, and was hooked from then.

I spent a lot of time trying to find the bassiest dance music possible, I was having a brief love affair with Electro House, then Nu Skool Breaks (which I still love) and then one day at the students union the DJ played a few dubstep tracks (remixy stuff like klaxons skream remix and in for the kill) and I thought "At last, found it!"

and it's been getting better and better every day since :n:
Forever falling in love with old tunes that I will never hear dropped.
