Random Ramblings

With the dubstep scene EXPLODING in SA over recent years, I start to wonder whether
this will just be another phase for people or whether they actually truly fathom the true 
magnitude of the genre. It's not JUST about the wobble or the sampling or even the 140bpm, 
it's way more. It's about the feeling that courses through your body when that thick sub bass 
from Benga & Coki - Night hits your chest and the beat grabs your right hand and throws it in
the air and nod your head. It's about the uncontrollable urge to pull your face in such a 
manner that people wonder if you are having a heart attack when Skism - Power tears through your earholes.
Ok, all I'm saying is that the newer dubstep listeners judge the whole genre on one or two 
Skrillex songs they might've heard and think, "This is awesome!". They don't know the true
origins and lesser, for lack of a better word, "commercial" dubstep. Until they have listened 
to DMZ, Mala, Benga, Skream, Plastician, Kode9, Coki, etc. they cannot truly say that they 
are a Dubhead. Don't get me wrong; I love me some Skrillex, Doctor P, Flux Pavilion, Borgore
even as much as the next guy, but as the saying goes: You have to know where you come from, 
before you can know where you're going.
