put the DUB back in DUBSTEP vol. II

March 12, 2009

badge_dub_chromeIt appears that some of the people involved in DUBSTEP for a longer time, like KODE9, SKREAM & SCUBA are slowly getting back to a more dubby sound and leaving the infamous mid-range wobble for what it is. I must say I like both ends of the spectrum, but it’s interesting to see them going back to the dub roots more. It has me wondering were they will take it after that… Check out this new stuff by SCUBA:

SCUBA – TENSE
