i've really enjoyed working on my new mix ("tower of babel"!) in ableton live. great software. I've found it extremely useful for blending music that isn't perfectly grid-based (say, flamenco or dub reggae) with music that is. unfortunately, my pirated version of ableton just caught me out today, so i can't work on it until i can find some money or get another version. I don't like buying software unless i'm sure i'm gonna use it, but ableton's pretty sweet, so i'd definitely through some dough at them if i had it... in the meantime here is a huge collection of dubstep tunes that have been blowing out my speakers recently... most are in my mix. i've been tempted to hoard them, but i'd have never gotten to where i am if people hadn't shared with me, so...
lot's of flavours here... mostly beastly and heavy, but there are some 2step joints, a latin tinged tune and some old-school rave leanings. don't bother playing these if your speakers don't have bass response. it would be pointless. all .zipped up on mediafire for you.
(mp3) ac slater - "hello"
(mp3) mundo - "come to me"
(mp3) hatcha - "congo therapy"
(mp3) torqux - "relentless" (16 bit remix)
(mp3) bar 9 - "murda sound" (eskmo remix)
(mp3) toasty - "the knowledge" (untold remix)
(mp3) ill.gates - "sweatshop" (antiserum remix)
(mp3) diefenbach - "up to your neck" (2000f remix)
(mp3) marco del horno - "samurai" (rusko 'safe sex' remix)
if you're looking for more, i've really enjoyed the new vibesquad album (which only has one 140 tune but it's a hot one...), filastine's "dirty bomb", pretty much everything "various production" puts out, and a couple tracks by stenchman, chase & status, reso and joker. i can't wait for the new boxcutter l.p. "arecibo message", the new martyn l.p. "great lengths" and the new starkey 12"s "creature" and "gutter music v.i.p." dubstep is endless. anyone who tells you it's ruined already isn't doing enough digital digging.
