Carl Cox has claimed that he was playing dubstep, “three years before anyone even called it dubstep.”

Cox made the claims in an interview with Time Out, going on to say, “I never got known for playing that style. I don’t mind the now generation being seen as the pioneers, but there had to be a Carl Cox opening the doors for these guys.”

For the musicians and producers out there, I’m sure you would agree that it is always a difficult process to transform a work of art and make it your own. Seven Lions, aka Jeff Montalvo, certainly lived up to the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for an upcoming producer to have a release on Above & Beyond‘s revered Anjunabeats label. They held a  remix contest for “You Got To Go” and he won unanimously with his skillfully crafted dubstep track. Not only did he make the original tune his own, but he harnessed the heaviness of dubstep, while still maintaining the atmospheric aesthetics of trance. Put simply by Above & Beyond, ”musically it works, vocally it works and the production is excellent.” Support Seven Lions and purchase his remix on Beatport!

GDD veterans Caligula and newly crowned regular Joe Maz have taken two of Dev’s tracks and turned them on their heads. Caligula transforms ‘Dancing in the Dark’ into one of their finest dubstep remixes yet, while Joe Maz catapults ‘Kiss My Lips’ into a maniacal big-room monster.

Fresh off conquering the 50-date sold-out Mothership Tour, John Dadzie aka 12th Planet has returned home to Los Angeles to host the SMOG 5 Year Anniversary event. The lineup, topped by dubstep don Skream, is massive, filled with the entire SMOG label roster as well as secret guests that are sure to make this an event for the record books.

The real treat will be a special debut screening of 12th Planet: A Documentary. Directed by creative visionary and esteemed LMU-film graduate Mollie Tarlow, the film takes you over almost 2 years of the wild ride of 12th Planet on tour and subsequently the rising emergence of dubstep in America. It also features scenes from the top music festivals across the nation and appearances by some of the biggest names in dance music.

SMOG, the dubstep record label that changed the American dubstep game (you could say even helped CREATE it), is celebrating its fifth year of existence, and it will be the birthday celebration to end all. Only five years ago, SMOG chiefs John Dadzie, Danny Johnson (head of Media Contender), and Drew Best ganged together in an effort to bring a new genre of music they felt so passionately about to the states. I think that I can speak for each of them when I say NOBODY knew that dubstep, the music few people knew about and even fewer were creating, would become what it is today. It’s been an incredibly exciting ride for everybody involved, and all along SMOG has been there shining the best light on one of the biggest rising genres in the music world today.” -  Laura D, Media Contender

That’s right, Sub Antix is back and he is blurring genre lines. Vendetta is an epic track that takes its influence from both tribal techno and UK dubstep. Sub Antix has truly done it again with his use of choirs-style synths, intricate ethnic drums and that dark grimy bass that you all know and love.

Watch out for a plethora of Sub Antix releases this summer, including a very long-awaited collaboration with Enigma.
