There was a massive thread in the General section about 4 months ago if that helps.

Also I don't think dub should be played in the middle really unless the crowd love it. I'd start or end with it. But thats me...

Oh and Fresh - Chainsaw .. So blatten

yes mate, think thats the thread im thinking of.

im going to put the dubstep at the end of the set. managed to get a residency at a local night last week. i played a dubstep set there as a kind of 'trial' & it went really well. the promoter said i can have a hour & a half set every week & he wants me to play a mix of the two. need plenty of ideas! thanks for the input guys

Dieselboy, Ewun & Evol Intent - Midnight Express has a tempo change on the breakdown to about 140 bpm so you could mix dubstep into that. You'd have to be quick though as the breakdown lasts 32 bars.

^^ I fully disagree. Drop this shit while its hot and then when people get bored of hearing dubstep in a mix, then try something different :)

why not invent something different from the word go.... if everyone started dropping electro house in a dnb would you do it??? probably would.... by why not be the first person??? takes a man to stand up and do something different then sheep will follow.....

Tunes that spring to mind:

Shimon - Faster Honey
Fresh - Chainsaw
Spor, Ewun & Evol Intent - Levitate

All have dubstep breakdowns from DNB, just make sure your quick enough to bring the next dubstep tune in before the tempo speeds back up again
