you aren't particularly far off the number of producers that still keep it real these days (in terms of dubstep)
Plenty of bedroom producers.
ok i should have put "successful" producers then. but you're right, there are a few amateur producers that keep the original sounds flowing.

if you broaden your definition of dubstep a bit there's about 20,000,000 people producing right now

...your point being? i'm talking about decent producers who have had significant/relevant releases and still keep their sound true to the scene. j:kenzo's latest release on tempa, for example, is on point and top notch. as for the 20,000,000 others.......?

I wonder about this, because Blackdown says the same thing. Is it because they don't want to be associated with the term/scene or something? As far as I can tell these guys are closer to what Dubstep is/was at the start than anything else about right now.
I make music as Forsaken, you can DL all my unreleased (and a couple released) bits here.

Yep, I agree. Was funny in the "Does anybody listen to dubstep anymore?" thread, loads of people were saying no, and then naming these dark, bass-y guys making tunes around 135-140 (i.e. the dudes blackdown reps) as people they do listen to.

Calling it dubstep and getting into that mindset might limit their creativity of what they produce. I happily play their tracks when mixing dubstep

I've always loved Ryan's tunes, it's unfortunate that hes calling quits but understandable what with all the drama they had to go through with Forward Forever.

Cant wait to catch him in Mexico(where i'm from) with Author this December.
AFAIK it will be the first proper dubstep show in my country.

Big up Jack Sparrow. You have always been one of my favorite dubstep producers 8)
It'll be a shame not to hear the follow up to Circadian, I had that album on repeat for a long time. Resepect your decision to follow another path in life as society tells us that we all have to grow up at some point.

Wish you all the best mate :4:

Some of these songs are personal favorites that will still be in my playlists in 40 years time.

No more gigs as Author then? Shame, as the artist(s) are booked here in December and I'm more familiar with Jack Sparrows than Ruckspin's.

One of the first producers of this sound I ever listened to.

Still, you gotta do what you gotta do.

Much respect jack.

Shoal was a heinous tune, pity i rarely hear it out.

Still think J.Sparrow & Ruckspin are 2 of the most underrated producers about.

Try to make a list of producers that used to be around but arent any more.

Way more sad of a list.
