Hey, sorry. I changed my soundcloud name to MedicalPartisan

Sorry about that! I would say that 90-95% of those particular tracks were downloaded legally from soundcloud by the artists who produced them. Also, if on mobile it may tell you that I have no liked music, it's a soundcloud glitch. Just click the likes tab again.

Anyway, I appreciate your thoughtful reply and just want to say that I hope I didn't offend anyone!

I just find the admittedly limited amount of dubstep that I've heard to be quite samey, unimaginative and a bit crude in production.

If you can be bothered, hit me up with what you think I might like. I'd like to hear something well thought out and produced, that has some subtlety and scale to it! I'll most probably listen on my HE400s or my new NAD VISO HP50s.

Take it easy!

Very cool man, very few people (especially on the interwebz) are willing to admit they posted too soon or willing to look at someone else's point of view!   Much respect.

 

Here's a few to get you started that I think are very friendly to someone new to the genre.   And BTW, I used to HATE dubstep as well.   I do mean hate.   It's grown to become one of my favorite genres.   I recommend sticking to Liquid Dub and Liquid DnB starting off so you realize Dubstep isn't as harsh as you might think it is.   Then once you get used to the style and the subbass you might find yourself yearning for more.    Or you might find you just flat out don't like it all but much respect to you for giving it a try.

 

 

Liquid Dub / Ambient (in other words, the dubstep "wub" isn't as harsh and far more subtle)

 

 

 

One of my favorites of all time...

 

 

 

Dubstep / Melodic Dub

Seven Lions is probably my favorite but since someone already posted Velvetine here is one I haven't seen posted here or in the big EDM thread.   The dubstep in this one is more pronounced but it doesn't rely on it for most of the song.

 

 

 

Club Banger Dubstep

 

 

 

Dubstep (with a dark ambient twist)

 

 

 

Pure Dubstep ...and pure evil on good headphones where the whipping sounds like it is whipping my brain, not so good with PC speakers

 

 

 

Personally I think it is easier to adjust to Dubstep with Liquid Dub and Liquid DnB.   

 

Liquid DnB

 

 

 

 

 

DnB

 

 

 

Sorry to the OP for posting DnB in a Dub thread but my reasons are above.   Sorry :(

I think DnB is fairly close to dubstep anyway. Thanks for the post.

As an avid melomane, there's something about the composition of DnB that irritates me. The repetitive "boom clat, boomclat; boom clat, boomclat" just doesn't do it for me. I am not, however, arguing that they are somewhat similar. But loving almost every other sub-genre of EDM, I don't like DnB.

As I've said I'm pretty dry on more things to share but I bought the "Freestyle2" album on iTunes Store today and it features both of these tracks.

 

 

 

Edit:

Oh I guess there's this beauty as well. It's a free download on SoundCloud to boot (link in the video description).

While I don't relate I can totally respect that.   Not everything is going to speak to everyone and certain sounds will always irritate some more than others.

Cool to see noisia and Koven being mentioned in the thread. Here's a remix by the german meastro's phace and Misanthrop (AKA neosignal)

 

And this young lad is absolutely killing it; Joe Ford:

And some mental neurosteptrap or something :D

Long time no see, fellow head-fiers!  Great stuff as usual everyone.  amigomatt, great to see you back. I couldn't agree more with Niteblooded, much respect for the comeback.  You mentioned subtlety and scale, I think these might fit the bill...

All from the Deep Heads dubstep channel, specializing in deeper and more chill dubstep.  Here's a great sampler, the first tune has a bit of trap snare in it https://soundcloud.com/deepheads/sets/deep-heads-dubstep-vol-1

'Extrapolated' is a huge sub-bass rhythm https://soundcloud.com/deepheads/mateba-extrapolated-free

And saving the best for last, a massive tune and one of the most chill songs imaginable, 'Somnium'  https://soundcloud.com/deepheads/congi-somnium-free-mastered
