    It's alright, even when you're at a rave and everyone else is off their heads and you're just a little tipsy :p:
    I find the whole experience vastly more amusing when you're with a load of people high as a kite, but, to be honest, I do quite like the beats, and just to be able to dance for hours on end, especially if there's a nos bar :coma:

    Can anyone please explain the attraction of this music? they'res no words or very little words, it can't be danced to, it sounds like a hoover's on, do drugged up people just listen to this? i don't understand why anyone would like it. do you just sway to it or something?

    I mean i am open to all types of music, even if i don't like them, i can understand WHY people might like them, but when i hear the majority of my friends get excited by dubstep, i'm just like :confused:
    Judging by this evidence, clearly not.

    It's gangster.

    Nothing like a leisurely drive around the estate in my tuned Ford Fiesta with some Digital Mystikz banging on the stereo. Yes baby, turn that bass up.

    I worked at a subdub event, was crazy, crowd is a mix of white hippys or black guys on drugs.people being sick, losing stuff then being aggressive coz u dont no where it is..lasted from 9pm to 6.30am the following morning. hardcore music that i could still here in my head at 3pm the following day.defo not for me!!!!!
    at the west indian in leeds?? i first started going to subdub and all that after GCSEs - its such a good environment with the vast majority of people - especially to the Iration Soundsystem playing 'dub in de year 3000 style' in the big room 1.

    in response to the OP - a lot of the commercial dubstep - a lot of rusko, skream etc now is a bit boring and not grimey enough. i know there is a always a lot of resistance from people who liked it 2-3 years ago right now... (when a lot jump on the bandwagon and it gets plays on radio1 it gets annoying) but seriously in the right conditions its amazing!

    dubstep is effing great! i guess people like it because it's highly atmospheric and visceral. you can feel the bass in your chest, in your guts, a lot of your senses are involved whilst listening to it (even without mind-altering substances). lots of ambient noises and eclectic samples. even though it's way slow, you have interesting riffs and chopped up drum samples to keep it exciting.

    there's quite a variety of different kinds of dubstep too. it's a pretty versatile genre and incorporates a multitude of influences, like lounge music, ethnic, sci-fi, grime, classical, to name a few.

    i often get my dubstep tracks off mixes that i like so i don't really know many albums that are good in their entirety. i prefer mixes, because you get the variety and progression.

    i can recommend you artists and mixes though if that will suffice :p: here they are in case you're interested:

    artists: caspa, forensix (mcr), coki
    albums/vinyls: gravious - fall bw winter sun, gravious - hotflush space and time, gravious - scuba004, watch the ride - skream (although, i'm embarrassed to admit that i like it :o:)

    mixes:
    D.Rodell - Subdivision Podcast1 - Subtrakt Edition (dubstep)
    these hollowpoint recordings podcasts are seriously the sickest things i've ever heard, not just in terms of dubstep! volume 1 feat spl vol 2 feat spl and babylon system

    Take 2 red bull/other energy drink, then add alcohol to the mix. Wait for the "I dont care and I love life" feeling to set in then find dubstep thats fast. Then you will know how to move to it.

    For the slow stuff, be chilled, empty your mind...follow the bass
