    At first no, I didn't. So I dismissed it as 'shit' or whatever. The same with drum and bass when I was first aware of it. I'd only heard one song really. Benga & Coki-Night and didn't really get it. Then last year I heard the Caspa remix of Where's My Money by TC and then Dubstep finally hit me. It's probably like that. You'll hear one tune and that's it, you're hooked, then the rest will follow.

    I don't know man, keep listening though and I guarantee you'll eventually get what you want out of it

    its been born as an extended part of the UK Garage n Grime scene, its not hard to grasp. heavy dub bass sounds with modern kicks n snares really, its been around a lil while now n i like it. not everyones cuppa and i can see why. if you dont feel that kinda heavy dub reggae sound your probably not gonna find much you like in it. i personally love that sound so it was a no brainer for me

    some peeps refer to it as 'ketamine music' lol

    taken me a while, most of the stuff i was hearing when it started out was the minimal-reverbed 'dub' sound of dubstep, an wasnt feeling it, when I saw the many different edges to dubstep to suit many a mood, Rusko, Caspa, Orion, Skream, etc for the jumpup ting, Vex'd, High Rankin, Taz Buckfaster etc for the aggy steppers ive really got into it.

    plus its wicked to produce, there is alot more scope and freedom to it, which is why there are alot of dnb producers crossing over.

    i went to see andy c the other week, and before he came on there was an hour n a half of dubstep. had to go outside after 10 mins.

    there is no diversity in dubstep WHAT SO EVER.

    everyone was going nuts to it, and dont get me wrong im all up for grimey basslines but its so fucking boring after 15mins.

    so i then had an argument outside with this bird about how dubstep will take over dnb...and her point was look at house now days compared to dnb...

    maybe in 5-10 years dubstep will be the new drum and bass haha

    Exactly. Peeps say this all the time, but it more has to do with the dj, and less to do with the genre.

    Get on chemical and listen to some dubstep, you can decide.

    i dint say it was trying to. and i didnt compare them even though they are similiar you must see that.

    fact is only music i listen to is dnb, its enuf for me. i was merely sayin in my opinion am never gonna prefer summat to dnb.
