solipsistic NATION No. 83: Dubsonic

DubsonicThis week on solipsistic NATION we’re going to focus seven labels that are putting out some of the finest dubstep you’re likely to hear.

Dubstep is growing in popularity with its dark sound of minimal rhythms and throbbing bass. We’ll learn where dubstep came from, why our guests have chosen to specialize in dubstep when electronic music mutates so quickly and whether dubstep has gone mainstream or is still regarded as an underground phenomenon.

The labels featured on today’s show are Nozl Recordings/Bloodied Blade Recordings, Boka Records, Hot Flush Recordings, Iberian Records, Immerse Records, Lodubs and Studio Rockers.

Today’s show is sponsored by eMusic. eMusic is the number one site for independent music with over three million tracks to choose from. Right now eMusic is offering a 14 day free trial with 35 free song downloads. If you cancel before 14 days, you get to keep all 35 tracks for free!
