Originally released in 2006. After six years of underground incubation, 2006 was the year dubstep blew up, taking this fresh south London sound and exploding it worldwide. Elevated by anthems such as Skream's "Midnight Request Line" and Digital Mystikz' "Neverland," the scene has witnessed high profile showcases on Radio 1 and rammed club nights like DMZ and Forward>>. The explosion of interest in the sound left many stunned new fans asking "where did dubstep come from?" The first compilation of its kind, The Roots Of Dubstep is the only compilation to definitively document the early years of dubstep. Lost white labels and overlooked gems, dusty dubplates and unreleased underground classics have been tracked down and put together into the definitive early dubstep document. The album captures all the founders of the dubstep scene at their creative peaks, from El-B to Zed Bias, Steve Gurley to Horsepower Productions, Skream, Benga, Artwork and more. It features two unreleased anthems, the original mix of El-B featuring MC Juiceman's "Buck & Bury," and Benga's "Star Wars," familiar to fans as both dubstep pioneer DJ Hatcha's signature tune and the dubplate no one thought would ever see the light of day. The compilation was co-A&R'ed by Ammunition Promotions (the organization who gave birth to the very name dubstep, promoters of the scene's original night Forward>>, and owners of the deeper-than-deep Tempa label) and journalist/producer Blackdown aka Martin Clark. Other artists include: Roxy, Phuturistix, Benny Ill, High Plains Drifter, Goldspot Productions, Menta and DJ Abstract.
