Red Bull Music Academy Presents: No Sleep Till Croydon, The Roots Of Dubstep
From gritty basements to the world’s biggest festival arenas, the genre of dubstep has come quite a long way. But with a whole new generation of “EDM” fans waving their glow sticks to ever more ridiculous drops and wobble bass lines, the origins of what once was a true revolution in sound seem to have been forgotten by many. We pay tribute to what is arguably the most influential form of electronic dance music of the past decade, with a night of sub-rattling edutainment courtesy of Skream, his former mentor Hatcha, DMZ mastermind Mala, and the mighty Plastician. Come meditate on bass weight, take a bite off that Big Apple, and travel FWD>> to the past with classic tunes from ten years of dubstep and beyond. It’s South London inna di area!
