Looks good now, with citations, samples, pictures, etc. Hat's off to whoever hooked that up.

Seems like a guy by the name of Michael Ray hooked it up.

Authors comments on the page are pretty interesting.




Respect out on the write up!

there have been several people working on this page for years now. there's also been a large amount of people trying to promo blast the page recently with their own promotions. wikipedia is not myspace, and let's be glad it isn't.

I wonder why Pinch & Dutty( for "War Dub") weren't mentioned.

they are now :)
errrr hello, longtime anon lurker, first time poster.


myself and two other excellent, tireless editors are trying to get the wiki article to GA (good article) and eventually FA (frontpage!) material.
have to say wiki policy can be annoying sometimes, there's some good stuff on these forums (especially the production forum) i'm itching to reference :(

worth mentioning as always that as with any wiki article, any editor is only standing on the shoulders of others who came before him.

I think it's fairly well known I wrote most of the early content of the first editions of this page, though it's clearly moved on a long way from there. Bigup to all the pimpers.

One point i have issue with is the intro:

"The first reference to dubstep in the UK national press as a genre, or sub-genre came early in 2004. The Independent on Sunday commented on a 'whole new sound', that it said was being called by five names:"

As we all know, dubstep started to define itself - in style if not yet in name - around 2000. Ghost 001 is a good starting point imho. So I resent the suggestion that the genre needs to rely on a piece in the IoS, four years after it started, before it could officially "exist".

Why should whether it's been picked up by a broadsheet have any more weight to it's existance? I for one was writing about it in the "national press" in 2001 - i put El-B in The Face for example.

So cant we ditch this bit about the IoS? I happy to edit the page but wanted to seek feedback from fellow 'steppaz...
