I really do have a serious taste these days for the atmospheric, the intelligent, the emotive. There is music within each of these mixes and the mixes as a whole, of course, that is truly emotive, wistful and more. I still love my Bukem, Photek, Hospital records and more, the developments recently are interesting.

Chillstep – the gentler end of dubstep

Posted on

Whenever I went to parties I always used to gravitate towards the chillout room. I would, of course, make my tour of what was going on, but there was always a fascination with the chill room. I have an abiding love of the gentler end of things – I do still love my big bouncy and darker, harder end of things, but still. Thus, I suppose it was inevitable that I would end up roaming around that reasonably recent end of music called chillstep. Unfortunately there is no proper wiki for it. You never know I may end up doing something myself. But still …
Phaeleh – I still really enjoy my 2 step and so, another inevitability – there are regular hints of 2 step within his stuff, an occasional flavour of intelligent dnb and more.

Chillstep came about as dubstep was modified in its move forwards by those bringing other sensibilities. People such as Phaeleh return to ideas of 2 step beats. Dubstep, itself, was part of a move on from the older 2 step garage musical genre. In some cases full on chill and ambient flavours are present. In other cases there is very much of a dub feel and so you see such things as psydub and cyberdub included. There is a lot of vocal content, at time with almost an indie, nusoul and pop vibe running through.

Other favourites of mine are Submotion Orchestra from Leeds, Ghosts of Paraguay, Synthetic Epiphany, Liquid Stranger and more. The hints of intelligent dnb, triphop, electrodub, full on chill, orchestral notes, dub itself, – these are all qualities that draw me in.
