About the show

Playing tracks by

Speech Debelle, Delphic, Roska, Benga & Coki, Dr Duda and Dr M-bee and more.

“There’s definitely a split within dubstep,” says Roska (a.k.a. producer Wayne Goodlitt). “I’ve talked to a lot of the guys—Kode 9, Shortstuff, etc.—and what I’ve heard is that you’ve got one side of dubstep that are playing that sort of 'farting dub' sound—that squeaking bass, you know what I mean? And then on the other side, there’s tracks with housier elements to them; they’re slowing them down, making them at 130 bpm rather than 140 or 145. It’s like a little merger—the darker side of funky meeting up with the housier side of dubstep.”

- From XLR8R issue 129, "Funkstep?"
