Hello! First of all can I just say that I have been off this for a few years now but i am back so I apologise if the review is a little rusty, but we will give it a go anyway.
A lot of you might not be sure about what 'Dubstep' is first of all so let me try and clear this up - I am a DJ and currently getting asked a lot more to play Dubstep and Trap music - Dubstep is electronic offbeat dance i.e not the traditional 4x4 beat as in most dance tracks. In recent years Dubstep has become a lot more mainstream thanks to artists such as Steve Aoki, Skrillex and I for one am a fan of music which evolves into new genres although im pretty sure that there will be a lot of people which might disagree with me on that statement.
So about the CD I bought this just to add to my collection and try to add a bit of variety to my Dubstep sets, it comes on 2 CDs and as you can see it is compiled by Ministry of Sound which means that they know what they are doing and if anyone is to make a dance collection then these are the guys to do it!
So about the tracks I remember when I bought this CD it was a few years ago I believe that they are know on Ministry of sound dubstep 5 or something like that. Now im not going to list all of the tracks on the CD and go through them but I will highlight a few on the compilation. The first of which is three tracks which sort of brought dubstep to life about 5 years ago with the first off beat basslines and they are:
Day n Nite - Kid Cudi & Dizzee Rascal - Bonkers & Riverside - Sidney Samson.
Even those who aren't massive fans of Dubstep might know these tracks as they have become so popular over the years - however on the CDs there are a number of tracks which haven't become so mainstream but which I personally love such as Sub Focus, Doctor P and Bloc Party.
So what are we looking price wise for an album such as this? Well, when I first bought the album I think it cost me about £14 which now you can get on amazon for a couple of pound but as I mentioned previously dubstep has evolved as a genre and the stuff on Sound of Dubstep 5 is a lot deeper and heavier than what it on this album .
The question which everyone wants to know when they buy something is whether it is worth the money, and that can be answered by whether you like Dubstep? Yes? Then go get the album its a great CD to add to your collection if youre not a fan of new music and 'noise' which some might call it then this is probably not the album for you.
Thanks for reading!
