Whilst Grime was blowing up out of East London, spawning the likes of Dizzee Rascal, Wiley and Lethal Bizzle into the mainstream, South London was busy bringing about an altogether darker affair. Forgoing the bright lights of the mainstream and easy to handle Grime beats, the likes of Skream, Benga and Loefah were trawling their way through the sludge to produce what became known as Dubstep.

Bringing various degrees of bass and melodies to the table, each producer has their own touch and with Bromley-born Skream, it’s the dub that comes to the fore, the billowing basslines being laced with minimalist dub rhythms. His 2006 album features the likes of JME and Warrior Queen and mixes up a nice collection of tunes, with arguably the most popular Dubstep track in its short history, Midnight Request Line, featured on the album.

The track you can hear is Blue Eyez, a perfect example of the amalgamation of styles that the 21 year old brings to the plate.

“Can I have some noise for the Skream?” asks the intro. Fucking right you can.
