I Love Dubstep


The UK's Rinse FM presents the first and only compilation to feature every dubstep anthem from the genre's inception to the present day, adding both mainstream and specialist appeal. This 2CD set includes certified classics including Burial's "Archangel," Benga & Coki's massive "Night" and Mala's "Anti War Dub" in one release. I Love Dubstep is a must-have for seasoned dubsteppers and the uninitiated alike. 70% of the featured tracks have previously been unavailable on CD format. Compiled and mixed by Youngsta and Geeneus, Rinse is the sister-label to recognized pioneer of dubstep, Rinse FM. These are 45 seminal tracks that will provide a comprehensive introduction to a sound that is steadily spreading roots across the globe. As a major pioneer of dubstep via its sister radio station Rinse FM, Rinse have been given unprecedented permission to use tracks never before featured on CD and some (like Digital Mystikz's "Haunted") which will never see the light of day again on CD or wax. Dubstep is fast approaching a musical tipping point: Missy Elliot has drafted in British producer Rusko for her forthcoming album; Burial's Untrue was nominated for the 2008 Mercury Music Prize; Benga & Coki's Night received worldwide critical acclaim, and a genre which was first brought to Radio 1 by John Peel now gets pride of place in the record bags of DJs such as Sinden, Switch, Mary Anne Hobbs, Laurent Garnier, Zane Lowe, Gilles Peterson and Daddy G. Glastonbury, Sonar, Miami's Winter Conference, Roskilde, Big Chill, Creamfields, Lowlands and Glade Festival have all featured dubstep prominently this year, exposing the genre to a whole new audience. For these new wide-eyed music lovers, I Love Dubstep is the digestible solution for their new-found curiosity and hunger. 45 back-to-back anthems across two CDs for the price of one -- now that's what I call music! Other artists include Horsepower Productions, Skream, Caspa, Loefah, D1, Benga, Massive Music, Kode 9, Distance, Magnetic Man, Headhunter, Kromestar, Coki, Hijak, Pinch, Conquest, SP:MC, Shackleton, TRG, Martyn, The Bug, 2562 and Abstract.
