Dubstep-Scene in Jamaica?

Post by paan » Fri Feb 06, 2009 4:26 pm

Hi

I'm a film-director from Berlin and a big Dubstep fan.
I'm researching for a short film (with dubstep in it)
and I would like to know, if anybody knows about an existing dubstep-scene in jamaica.
or is there no dubstep in jamaica?

cheers.

they're still on the dancehall as far as i know.
i wondered this myself, but i've never spotted any Jamaican dubstep nights in the appropriate events forum http://dubstepforum.com/viewforum.php?f=27

well overdue though! there's not enough DUBstep if you ask me. too much dubSTEP!

I think they just listen to actual dub instead, dancehall is the main ting over there.

well, apart from in some peoples fantasy's. Dubstep doesn;t really have much to do with Jamaca. No more then any other UK dance music.

:lol:

are you mad?

dubstep is grim and depressing most of the time, dancehall and reggae is full of energy, especially the dancehall arena at summerjam festival!

you wont see people shooting flames everywhere & pumping towels at your average dubstep night.

I'd be really surprised if Dubstep didn't start making it's presence felt in Jamaica. Jamaica was the king of bass with it's Dub & Reggae but that kind of slipped away with Dancehall which as far as I've heard is lacking in the bass department. I don't like Dancehall at all due to the lack of bass so I think a fusion of Dubstep & Dancehall would be kick ass! I'm sure that fusion is already happening here in the UK so maybe it's time some producers went for a holiday in Jamaica and hooked up with some Dancehall stars.

Yes, the majority of it is quite grey and makes me think of hackney for some reason, and at a dubstep night everyone allways makes that extra special effort to look miserable and really serious, i'm excluding of course the obligatory group of 14 year olds at the front jumping up and down the whole time.

jamaica is all about its dancehall now

dubstep and dancehall have similar energies/hype

jamaica is into the "hip hop" scene aswell although its not on the top, they do bump the b.s. on the radios

its weird to not see dubstep pickin up in jam-down, esp seeing that the culture of dubstep and dancehall are very similar, esp soundclashes and all

if more vocalist and emcees was on dubstep then it might pick up down there

but for the most part i havent really heard of any kind of electronic-esque scenes in jamaica

and i know the drug culture doesnt dictate dubstep, but i jus gotta say this....

,......not too many yutes out there on horse tranq's and rollin on x either
