Dub Step?!? What It Is & Where It's From...

Dub Step is a genre that has been very difficult for me to get into. I had just not heard too much in it that made me wanna do anything other than yawn. But hey, the same can be said for a lotta hip hop these days too! ;-)

That being said, I just heard some stuff from a producer named Burial that sounds really interesting. Plus I ran across a video overview of the genre, and it's origins, and artists (Benga, Youngsta, & Kode 9) at XLR8R that introduced me to it in a way that I could relate to.

Some of this stuff really takes me back to the halcyon days of Hardcore / Drum & Bass / Jungle... only on downers. And hey, there's even a Florida contingent of this largely UK dominated genre.
