With over 500,000 sales worldwide, the biggest selling Dubstep compilation series is back with the latest edition… This Is Dubstep Anthems.
One of dance music's most frequently misused terms, it's worth reminding ourselves exactly what an anthem truly is before we continue…
Anthem: (noun) A rousing or uplifting song identified with a particular group, body or cause
When it comes to rousing, NO other genre comes close to dubstep. Now 10 years old, dubstep's seismic sonic shift has inspired every single electronic music genre possible… And beyond. From its humble Croydon roots to its current state of global dominance, dubstep has been identified by, and indeed uplifted, every group, body and cause on the planet.
Plotting the many highlights that truly embrace the genre's ever-evolving movement, from the premier league producers who really pushed the scene to its exciting extremities, This Is Dubstep Anthems is a slab of scene history. Hallmark moments include Skream's game-changing remix of La Roux's 'In For The Kill', Nero's number one-hitting 'Promises', Doctor P's infectious bass screamer 'Sweet Shop', Chase & Status's breakthrough smasher 'Eastern Jam', Benga & Coki's ambassadorial airwave chaser 'At Night' and Caspa's scene-uniting remix of TC's 'Where's My Money?'
Elsewhere across the double CD, 30 track compendium are other hugely influential tracks such as Skream's debut track 'Midnight Request Line', Flux Pavilion's short-sharp-subby 'Bass Cannon', 16Bit's militant remix of Noisia's 'Machine Gun', Burial's sub-aquatic take on Commix's own anthem 'Be True' and loads more.
Brought to you by the best-selling This Is Dubstep brand, This Is Dubstep Anthems is a celebration of the last decade of bass… And the many talented producers who've made it happen. Here's to another decade of rousing riddims!
