What tune originally got you into dubstep?

I heard Miss Dynamite from a friend, but had no clue what I was listening to although loved it. Looking back now it was mainly UK Garage beats under Miss Dynamite, not Dubstep. We were calling it “Grime” although had no idea what Grime or Dubstep was yet. I needed to hear more tunes w that dark broken 140 vibe, so I stumbled through some internet searches and found a Ben UFO mix that started with D1’s Crack Bong. Mind blown. As a DJ I immediately switched my genre from DnB to Dubstep, 29 July 2005 was my 1st order for dubstep vinyl :slight_smile:

My first experience was not with dubstep. It was brostep, but mistakenly thanks to the mainstream media everyone called it dubstep. It was Korn’s Path of Totality album so thanks to this I started to search brostep artists’ songs and I really got into. I downloaded couple “dubstep” compilations and one of had Skream and Distance songs, I liked how dark are they (compared to happy party brostep LOL). I remember one of those songs were Night Vision by Distance. So few weeks after I listened to discographies of classic dubstep (not brostep) artists.

Big up, night vision was definitely one of those turning point tunes for me that did a lot to get me off the brostep wave

Yes, that’s an awesome track! I still listen to it, also Skream’s remix of this song gets me everytime!

Probably this one:

At least I remember listening to it a lot in my early days of dub garage obsession. The fun thing is that I found it on wikipedia and was instantly charmed. After that, I think it was one of FatKidOnFire sessions hosted by Korrupt which got me into later dubstep.
