Since dubstep is something I blog about at periodic intervals here, and I came across the free Anechoic Chamber album I thought I’d check it out, and give it a spin. Turns out the release isn’t really the kind of dubstep that I personally find the fucking shit, but it’s pretty good anyway. It lacks rawness and the rougher, more underground style sound I dig, but it does contain 20 tracks which I guess could be catalogued as dubstep, dub-techno or IDM according to their own info PDF in the download.
The thing is, dubstep is a hip name these days, and whenever a track is electronic, has some dub influences and has a rather slow tempo is labelled as dubstep. Trip-hop had the same fad going on years ago, and breakcore is also suffering from this same hip-labelling frenzy. But basically it all comes down to the music, and whether you like it or not. So if you dig a portion of ambient-eske, slow, dubby, instrumental tracks, this download might be right up you alley. If not, you only wasted some bandwidth on it, and you can always use it as a chill background track to have sex to. There are worse things in life than that.
