I outsourced the first installment of the 11th day podcasts to our good friend and fellow bass aficionado Somejerk who posted this on dubstepisdead.com. I chose this mix not because I believe dubstep as a genre is dead, nor do I wish for it to die, but because I believe that at this moment in time in the progression of bass music, the concept of genre is (finally) dead. Dubstep was a pan-genre movement, and a revolutionary one at that, applying a very few core aesthetics to a myriad of musical influences ranging from dub, house, techno, jungle, and beyond. It was the lenient nature of dubstep’s simple core aesthetic that nurtured its impressionable character, allowing it the malleability for experimentation and progression just as much as the creative regression and commercial dilution that’s disheartened so many followers of the sound. Somejerk showcases the many permutations of this sound’s progression, now evolved and lending its own influences to sound.
