"I know what its like to feel powerless. The freedom that comes with doing what you want and saying what you want because you have nothing to lose is intoxicating. I would like to encourage anyone to speak their mind and question authority, especially young women."
"The best way to describe dubstep….It’s very versatile music at around 140bpm, very heavily bass orientated, there’s no real way to describe it because there’s so many different influences, from DnB to Techno to Jungle to UK garage, definitely UK garage, that’s a big influence. I love the versatility of Dubstep, the tempo is just right for us as well, I always like Drum and Bass, especially the basslines but the tempo was too fast. We were making dubstep before it was called Dubstep really, when were 13 or 14. It was garage but it weren’t. We started making these twisted basslines and it’s just evolved into what we do now, really. There was us, horse power, artwork, hatcha, kode9…then digital mystiks came around. We just kept making tunes, we made what we felt and it became Dubstep."

Considering this is my first post i thought i would throw something out there that is ground breaking in the bass music scene and coming from the local Sydney dubstep scene. Sammy B’s debut ‘The Anthem’ has had crowds going at places like Chinese Laundry and World Bar week after week and now he has followed up his high achieving debut with ‘Fuck the Fam’ - a tongue in cheek look at members of the Boss Bass family. Through this track you can tell that not only is Sammy B a lyrical genius but his producing skills are the best amongst the best. Autoclaws jumps on as a collaborator for this tune and you can really tell the two of them have spent a lot of time perfecting this in the studio together.
