apparently in an interview, they said they didn't want to use too much bass because it was too underground, they wanted to promote the 'higher pitched poppy dubstep' for a wider audience.

I'd fucking love to find the source for this, but I got told it whilst drunk from someone drunk so not sure how accurate it is. Defo believable though.

Played at the same gig as them a couple of weeks ago. Didn't show up for their set for obvious reasons, although I guess it could have been funny.

"turn the subs off, we don't need them."

They are doing a DJ set in Southend tonight.....at whats pretty much the main 'club' for standard chavs and regular people. Its like them doing a gig at Oceana or something. (which funnily enough Shy FX and Stamina are doing in Kingston soon).

My soundsystem can't find the bass :(
Never understood the UKF shite btw, used to be a proper channel with some good tunes, now it's a weekly update of cringing noises? Apparently it has become the new main source for dubstep, poor mr. Inspector :( but euh :middlefinger: :middlefinger: :middlefinger: :middlefinger: :middlefinger: :middlefinger: :middlefinger: :middlefinger: fock 'm all, gosh I love this smiley

edit; just listened to a couple of songs, isn't this pop? Instead of Dubstep? :sofa:

I slagged them off on twitter, as you do (without @'ing them). Next morning I woke up to a facebook message from one of them. -w-

To be fair it wasn't arsey or anything, thought it was jokes that he took the trouble to search my name on facebook though. :cornlol:
