Woodwinds & brass in dubstep


#1

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


#2

or this classic use of flute with wobble by Plastician:

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


#3


?


#4

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.

#6

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


#7

Rutten.


#8

this guy’s like me


couldn’t quite come at the flute


#9

I find reddit has done a discussion on this


some nice tunes listed on there.


#10

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


#11

which one?


#12

Creamlard brought this one up in another thread


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


#13

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


#14

bit of brass and melodica…


#15

and of course these lovely brass lines


#16

#17

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.
