Yeah but tunes, especially MRL and Anti War Dub are considered "the best/biggest dubstep tunes ever" like wtf no. They're great, but certainly not the best, that's what happens when you get anthems in a genre.
A tune like Benga's Blood, not played that much, but I know Youngsta especially overrates this tune a lot, even though it sounds similar to his Skank tune on Big Apple.
It's all opinion though at the end of the day. I think Request Line is a contender for Skream's best and lives up to the hype while Anti War Dub and Night to me are vastly overrated.
And again, I agree with Yunx on this one. I think Blood is better than original Skank. But then my fav Benga is probably Walkin Bass so it's nothing to do with whether something is released or not.
Yeah I like Blood from Benga, but it isn't the most amazing tune ever, I prefer some of Benga's tunes from around 07-08 like Urban Fox, Z, Pleasure, Roller, Addicts, E-Trips, Mixed Signals and a few others. I am a bit of a hypocrite and I do overrate 26 Basslines more than I should, but I am not a fan of the VIP version though. Another Benga track I like is "ammo" a VIP of "break it" essentially, and "break it" for me has become like "rottan" from Skream, as in it doesn't feel right when I listen to it, so I only listen to "ammo" and "rutten."
I don't think MRL is Skream's biggest tune, I prefer the Mala remix, I like "Hedd Banger" a lot, I like "Life In General" and "Minor." I also like the "0800 Dub" a lot, I like his Cape Fear track, Tune In, Herb, Rutten, Dutch Flowerz (Maybe his best tune imo) and a few others, but MRL is still better than most of his tracks, I don't agree with it being his biggest. I also like "Percression" that one is quite unorthodox.
I like the Anti War Dub a lot, but I still don't think it's the best track ever, Night I also like, but is very overrated imo.
I overrate Left Right Left a bit too much as well, but I was hoping Loefah would release that in 2006 after I heard it in the DMZ essential mix and on the stellar sessions Mala B2B Chef B2B Skream in 2006.
I also overrate Countdown or Lowdown by Coki, even though that is one of the most underrated Coki tracks ever imo, I was hoping that would've got a release years ago.
I also like Hijak, Old Rusko, 2562, Komonazmuk, D1, Kromestar, Silkie, Quest/Conquest, Cyrus, Cluekid and a few others.
Sorry if it's a bit long, peace out.
