Boomnoise wrote:In cyberspace a year isn’t a long time. But when you consider the sheer number of members, threads and posts on a forum that is all but 365 days young, it’s a different matter. Over the course of a year we’ve witnessed an explosion; an eruption which has been tracked and monitored, discussed and debated with an enthused passion which is normally only reserved for the most important things in life.
In 2005 the hibernation of one net place, Dubplate.net, yielded the birth of another and the timing seemed perfect. From its inception Dubstepforum.com has been a vibrant and exciting place to indulge in, and it's hard to believe that it has only taken twelve months to transform into the gargantuan community it is today.
In Croatia, Dubway paved the way for the hoards to discuss, argue and antagonize, celebrate and inform. The rest of the world soon flocked to the URL, through compulsion and through intrigue. Now dubstepforum.com is truly international and truly the only place to look for Dubstep knowledge.
With the pace gathering, more and more Dubstep fans turned Dubstep producers, wanting to contribute something to the sound they love and help construct some of its irrepressible energy for themselves. Here we have the very first Dubstepforum.com mix, selected by N-Type; a testament to the solidarity and firmly held belief in the sound which the forum and its members have helped propagate and succeed.
Only propelling itself, Dubstep took no help and no hand outs. The strength of the music has driven it forward to be one of the most vital sounds around today. With its community a crucial part of this, Dubstep has gone from being the sound of hard drive whirl in Croydon bedrooms to a fully fledged international movement.
The mix gushes talent and subtly indicates the future sound of the underground. It’s refreshing and energizing that this mix could be borne out of a place as often as sterile and cold as the internet. In a scene overflowing with unattainable and often over familiar dubplates, this mix showcases the talents of a new generation of producers combining their efforts into one solid mix freestyled by N-Type in the Kiss FM studios.
With tracks from the likes of the now released producers like Bristol’s Headhunter and Glasgow’s Gravious, coupled with both unknowns and stalwarts of the forum, this mix is not like any other Dubstep mix you’ve heard before.
From Romania to Portugal, from America to Poland, Dubstepforum.com’s first mix truly represents a world in the grip of the Dubstep virus and a forum united by a passion for the sound. It is with this mix we say happy birthday to the place we can call home. So turn up your sub, get your drink on, get your smoke on and enjoy the creativity of Dubstepforum.com!
