Dubstep has come a long way since its birth in dark and dank London bassments a decade or so ago—some would argue that its path has been a bumpy one, hitting a few dead ends along the way (brostep comes to mind). This RBMA-helmed hoedown pays tribute to the early days of the influential woofer-waffling genre, with sets courtesy of Skream (one of the guys you can thank or blame, depending on your point of view, for helping drag dubstep out of the underground and into the mainstream), original FWD>> resident Hatcha, the DMZ label's Mala and grime-dubstep doyen Plastician; Sgt. Pokes is the man on the mike.
