Your history of Dubstep...

debate, appreciation, interviews, reviews (events or releases), videos, radio shows

I'm writing an essay on Dubstep, abit more interesting than rock & roll!
Obviously, not alot of books or text has been published about it as its relatively new.

What do you all know about how it started, social aspects, dance culture, influence?
And are there any good articles, journals etc i've missed...?

Ta.

anything written by Martin Clark- his Blackdown blog, pitchfork monthly blog, even tempa Cd sleeves (not sure of links but am sure someone knows)- credit him ;)

This forum itself is a great resource for the history of dubstep...there is a wealth of info sitting right in front of you if you are willing to look through it all.

Surely writing about a cultural revolution which has influenced society for the last 60 years or so is more interesting than writing about a little known genre of electronic music, largely unknown by the vast majority of the worlds population.

I find the bible a bloody good read too. Doesn't mean i believe everything in it. The thing is, if you find one contradiction or mistruth in it, it calls into question the entire text and the agenda of the authors.

Council of nicea anyone or how about the book of enoch ?

Are you going to start banging on about how Arius was excommunicated because he was producing breakstep? You bloody love arguing about that you do. :|

And so when does a genre surpass being too little and unknown to research and educate...!?

For one relatively small write-up question which has been proposed to hundreds of people I do find it more interesting to write about such a current growing scene, being part of it and the possibilities of its global awareness.

How many times has a lecturer had to wade through Elvis 'the King' papers?

word of warning: if your lecturers are anything like 90% of the academic staff at the uni i work at they'll take one look at a piece of work that is heavily based on wikipedia and dismiss it.
