“The best way to describe dubstep....It's very versatile music at around 140bpm, very heavily bass orientated, there's no real way to describe it because there's so many different influences, from DnB to Techno to Jungle to UK garage, definitely UK garage, that's a big influence. I love the versatility of Dubstep, the tempo is just right for us as well, I always like Drum and Bass, especially the basslines but the tempo was too fast. We were making dubstep before it was called Dubstep really, when were 13 or 14. It was garage but it weren't. We started making these twisted basslines and it's just evolved into what we do now, really. There was us, horse power, artwork, hatcha, kode9...then digital mystiks came around. We just kept making tunes, we made what we felt and it became Dubstep. ”
