Wow, I’m not a huge fan of the use of auto-tuners, i feel like they have become way to popular recently. However I have to admit that this is pretty fucking cool haha. Give it a watch and let me know what you think? hopefully more will come of this type of experiment!
There are 35 categories altogether: Best Artists (separated into 17 genres), Best Track (17 genres, with both originals and remixes), and a final open question asking the public to name the ‘most influential, relevant and forward-thinking person in electronic music in 2008’.”

holy shit! I cant stop listening to this record and now you have to read about it muahaha. Pop in this cd and you are sure to enjoy some of the gully riddims, this album received the best album award at the 2009 dnb awards in birmingham and it is no surprise why. It combines the best of two incredible worlds dnb + dubstep = ftw!
WARNING: when listening to dubstep you may blow your speakers and/or your mind!
Here is one of the more well known tunes from this record (at least that im aware of) and im pretty sure that i have heard this mixed by the likes of rusko and co.?
“about five or six years ago i hitchhiked hear and my thumb was stuck out on the freeway and this old man comes up to me and says “you know where you are?? your in the jungle baby!”
This is a unique track, at first i wasn’t too sure what to think of it but tbh now i think it could be one of those tracks that brings more listeners to the dubstep scene. it starts off with an 80′s style sample in the back ground and the pop vocals and then it hits you… tip: crank it
anyways go check the album and spread the dubstep sound to the masses
Ever wondered how to make your very own dubstep tracks? let Rusko teach you!
Check back on Monday to see part two

There are whisperings of At The Drive-In sorting out their past differences and getting back together…
“I wouldn’t mind it [a reformation]. It might happen, we just have to iron out a lot of personal things. A lot of it we’ve dealt with already and I’ve apologised for a lot of things I’ve said and the way it ended… we’ll see what happens.”
