The strange/funny/ironic thing is almost all the hype I've heard about dubstep being the super hot thing right now has pretty much been isolated to and come from this forum. Either it's a small niche of electronic music fans & producers that perceive it as something larger than it really has become to a wider audience, or I'm just out of touch.
In my exposure to lots of different music from friends...hearing plenty of current stuff on both independent internet radio & in my everyday travels in cities to some places that tend to play trendy music over the sound systems, going to clubs, etc, I'd say very little of what I hear currently is dubstep or influenced by dubstep.
I hear much more talk & hype about dubstep than the music itself!
consider yourself lucky then. within the last year its been every where around here.
go out for a beer, oh look some ass in a mowhawk playing dubstep, go to the mall for shoe's, hey some ass is handing out flyers for warehouse show where they will be playing none other than dubstep, play an accoustic show then go to get something to eat, oh goody the waiter is knowledgeable on dubstep, want to hang out with your younger sister?, yay she wants to go to see some butt play dubstep.
a new song comes out you like, one day later remixed with dubstep.
and then you go online, dubstep dubstep dubstep fucking dubstep.
it has to end soon though, this bubble is so fucking huge that its going to scoop up a needle factory and pop itself.
