Just when thought Holy Ghost was dead...

This one comes along. Cracks me up everytime. jokes.

Monster Musick updates

Ok Dj Evol's new label finally has a myspace page to call home. Check out Monster Musick on Myspace There's four new tunes up. Slaughterhouse (featured on the new 12th Planet mix) is going to be on the first 12" which should be headed for tests right now. White labels might be out in time for X-mas? Anyways check Load Media U.K. for distro details if you are interested. I'm the goon responsible for the label art and logo design. This is the first time I've really done any art for the dubstep world, so hope you all dig it. Brad likes his 60's grindhouse monster movies, so I just went with that and tried to give it a contemporary feel. If anyone is interested in similar work, hit me up, who knows I might have time.

Also I just want to let you all know I've been working on Evol's "Sickness" video as well. A work in progress will probably be posted in the following weeks. "Sickness" came out on as SMOG L.A. 1st vinyl release, also featuring the "Smokescreen" by 12th Planet.

BTW I'm predicting Out of Breath will be the next big wobble, tune, I'd like to know what you guys think, post some comments and let me know. Show me enough blog love and I could possibly start doing some vinyl give-aways. And everyone likes free records, right?

DSF followup

A little more explanation to the Dubstep forum has been posted, and so for those that care I thought I'd share. IMO seemed to call out too much attention in a negative way, but perhaps it was for the best. Here's the post:

Like the empty space before a drop, the past few days were a dramatic pause for deliberate effect. Reactions have been mixed; positive and negative, public and private, opportunistic and confused. An indefinite timeframe of downtime was specified, yet interpreted by some as final. The questioning call of 'why?' has resounded. We obviously left the finality of it all a little open-ended: for a while we didn't know how long and we didn't want people to know. This wasn't an especially pragmatic move. It was one to instigate a response.

Birthdays are a good time to take stock, evaluate your life and think about the direction you're going in. Closing the forum for a few days has allowed us all to do this. This was the main point of the closure. It was a unanimous decision but all the moderators had their own reasons for going ahead with it as well. We felt the need to do it. Everyone has had the chance to think about what the forum means to them, which we think is a good thing. What if it was the end?

In all honesty, we were getting a headache from the constant noise, so we hit pause in an attempt to try and make people realize what is important to them. Perhaps we failed. Perhaps not. Ending it for good would have been an interesting move but this was never going to be permanent as it's far better to continue, forging the best environment we can for this music to be discussed and disseminated.

The value of any forum is determined by its users. This was always the strength of this forum in the past and perhaps now it is its weakness. This is both a matter of scale and success. Like the sound, 'The Community' has mutated and fragmented and is an entirely different entity today than it was in 2005. This is fine of course; this wasn't an attempt to change this. This wasn't a wheel up to try and take things back. We didn't think it would return things to how they were in the forum's infancy. It wasn't an elitist move. Yes, we would like more decorum and less idiocy but we know this is the internet; a place where currency is information which flows continuously often at the expense of quality. We paused the flow. It was a moment to reflect. All the moderators have and we hope you have too.

We realise that DSF is the online nucleus of the scene and to many away from the more established geographical hubs of the sound, the lifeblood of it. We know it is valued and we just want it to be the best possible place it can be for our users. This forum would not exist without the music or its users. But our users; DJs, producers, promoters and fans are able to shape it by their actions. 3 years in and it's hard to think that this forum has been anything less that catalytic in the music's development. Not specifically its existence but its function; what it has facilitated and what it has fostered - this international community.

So welcome back, make what you will of the past few days and if you haven't already, please download the BunZer0 3rd birthday mix and remember we're all here because of the music.

Dubstep Forum Closes!!!????

edit. 10/10/08 : Well apparently this was a false alarm of sorts, but here's what when down a mere four days ago. Dubstep forum is back, maybe it just ducked out for a bit so people can actually appreciate it for what it is, a music forum, not a soap opera. Anyways I'll leave this up, for kicks.

The following press release was posted on dubstep forum front page:


Embargoed until: 6 October 2008, 00.01


On 6 October 2005 Dubway created 3 years on and here we are. A lot has happened in those 3 years. We’ve gone from being a community of just a few hundred to over 20,000. We’ve fostered a co-operative forum label and hosted a few raves, including the bete noire that was the awards. So whether you lurk innocuously, post ferociously, inform and engage debate or simply offer up your very much valued opinion on moderation issues; thank you for being a part of it.

To celebrate, please download and listen to this mix, expertly crafted by the indomitable BunZer0 using artisan ingredients produced by our very own members, highlighting the talent and passion at the heart of this community. It’s interesting to compare it to the 1st birthday mix by N-Type to see how the sound has progressed within 2 years. Check it out. The full tracklist can be found here.

So let’s clear a few things up. To kill the speculation, there will be no awards this year. After last year’s success / jolly good fun / catastrophe / embarrassment (delete as per your opinion), we have decided against doing them again. We’ve always been about putting the music and community first and the awards were merely an attempt to celebrate both these things but it also seems that those two things dictate whether or not the awards are a good idea. And this year they aren’t.

On the flipside, we are going to have a birthday party in November. There will be bass. There will be booze. There will be no Buffalo. November 14th is a date for your diary.

And oh yes, we’re also closing the forum. Indefinitely.

Happy Birthday!



Here was my original response.

In the meantime people have started up another forum called

I'm not a scenester, I'm just a guy that digs some tunes. I'm a bit bummed by the whole thing. I don't really know the behind the scene politics or gossip about the dubstepforum. I went there exclusively for mixes, tune IDs, and some insight on dubstep production and the scene in general. But I did enjoy the fact that big name DJs and producers posted on there, and I can read about there mixes, or know when new albums were dropping and what not. I'm a little sad about the whole thing to be honest, and will gladly spill some beer on the curb for it. RIP for now...

12th Planet - Nibiru Kingdom Mix

got a heavy wobbled out mix by the one and only 12th planet. no tracklist as of yet, but plenty of dubs and some familiar anthems. I noticed him doing crazy mashup of Evol's Slaughtehouse, and another tune, tho I can't think of the name of it right. kinda crazy and kinda fun. download 12th Planet - Nibiru Kingdom Mix
