Started feeling nostalgic in the extreme for some of the older dubstep tunes in my library, so I started to compile a list tonight, all of them tunes that to me, creates such a distinct mood that makes them feel special. One of the first tunes to come to mind was DRT - Rising Sun (The Boogaloo Crew remix), so I started to wonder what happened to 16bit, (which DRT was one half of). I never really got into 16bit, but I liked a couple of their songs. Turns out they split up back in 2012 -_-
Browsing the dubstepforum thread a bit more, I found some absolute gems by them, some of which I’d heard before but totally forgotten about, and this made me feel gutted that I hadn’t started listening to them earlier. Surely they must still be making music right? Well yes, but the sample that someone posted of what The 13 (previously DRT) is doing didn’t inspire much enthusiasm - it seems that he’s doing the trap thing that seems to be everywhere nowadays.
Eddie on the other hand, will be releasing some new music this year, so that might be interesting. Still, at least there’s a whole discography for me to explore now.
