"hello my name's oliver and i'm a dubaholic."

London, early 2000s.

a new and grimy genre of electronic music emerges from the filth and ludacris of london's drum and bass backstreets. it is distinguished by its UK garage roots and 2-step rhythm, with emphasis on bass and progressively 'dark' signature.
tempo of about 140 beats per minute.
heavily shuffled or syncopated.
rhymn propelled by bassline rather than percussive trait.
critiques of the genre: the 'filthier' 'dirtier' or 'grimier' the sound, the better the track.

contributions to the genre
