Woodwinds & brass in dubstep

can be sooo good
particularly in this type of tune,
the flute evoking the East
within stately & minimal breakstep:

or this classic use of flute with wobble by Plastician:

anybody think of sax, oboe, clarinet, trumpet, (!tuba!?)…equivalents?


the sax on that one ^ sounds like a UB40 rythm section solo
i.e. ska influenced skank.
on this one off City Limits:
Silkie doesn’t really adapt it to ds imo…it remains jazz.

ah yeah, again of that experimental era.
great ponderousness…what I call stateliness.
and dubby as fuck eh?

this guy’s like me

couldn’t quite come at the flute

I find reddit has done a discussion on this

some nice tunes listed on there.

if you mean the melody bits of it are from godfather i think

which one?

Creamlard brought this one up in another thread

not quite liquid half-time but has early ds vibe at times

if only jungle had pursued this more organic path
the bass & sax solos so good

bit of brass and melodica…

and of course these lovely brass lines

An old forum producer called 2oh1 made this track called Ghost Train.
The brass sections in this are just amazing. It’s got a real Specials/Ska vibe to it.

that album is so sick!
