Over the last few months there has been a softer sound emerging from the UK underground which, while taking a lot of cues from dubstep, is blurring the boundaries between ambient, indie and hip hop. These are electronic musicians who are experimenting with different tempos, textures, and ideas to produce new forward thinking music. Post-dubstep has been the word sometimes used to describe the productions of Mount Kimbie, James Blake and others who are using the dubstep blueprint as a launching pad for their own imaginations and so far they have been coming up with some very interesting sounds. On State.ie’s second dubstep mix we will try to guide you through a small part of this strange and wonderful world. (more info @ www.state.ie)
