Release Notes

...added 21/01/2008 3:46:39 PM

Bay Area Dubstep volume 01 contains 14 unmixed, dj friendly tracks by San Francisco bay area dubstep and grime artists. From the deep ethnic stylings of Djunya, JuJu and D Program, to the twisted tech-dub of Eskmo and The Antiserum, from the grimey orchestrations of MBZ and the live hardware sounds of Albert Joseph, Atomikdog and Zapper, to the rootical stylings of Matty G and Roomate, each and every track is a chronicle to this contemporary musical artform called "Dubstep".

Heres a late breaking announcement! This amazing CD was recently featured by DJ " Mary Ann Hobbs" on Radio One on her now infamous "Essential Mix" electronic music show being broadcast weekly out of London. On the show she played track 6 aka Monstahs by Eskmo vs The Antiserum and gave a big shout out to all the artists and labels involved.

This hit CD was also featured on N-Types RinseFM Mix both broadcast in the UK and via podcast.

This is his first official dubstep track, included is a collaboration with The Antiserum. The Antiserum is a bay area wonderkid, with vinyl releases on BreaksFM records and Steps in Time. Matty G is a Santa Cruz native that creates dubstep inna-roots reggae-stylee. With many releases on Argon records, and many more planned, Matty G is the sound of future dub.
