For those still harbouring doubts as to whether dubstep is a trend in its own right, and a sound definitely settled on the surface of mainstream electronic music, here’s yet another reason to prove them wrong: Ministry Of Sound, a veteran label associated to commercial house and dance music, will soon release a new dubstep compilation. Although the cover artwork might put many off, the role of writer Joe Muggs (a regular in magazines like The Wire, Word Magazine and FACT) as curator of the compilation is a guarantee of the quality of its content. In his own words, “we’re past the question of whether dubstep could break the mainstream … but does this mean the sound and scene have sold out their underground credentials?” To answer this question, that is, to defend the validity and vitality of what’s coming from the post-dubstep space, here comes “ Adventures in Dubstep and Beyond”, a 2-CD compilation including famous tracks from artists like Martyn, Flying Lotus, Benga, Appleblim, Ikonika, Geiom and MRK1, along with numerous new and lower profile producers.
