    i haven't heard this tbh, but have you heard Brand Nubian's dub step album that was Part II in this series? from what i heard in some promo clips of that, it seemed like a much better project where Brand Nu actually re-recorded their vocals and worked with these Dub Step producers to make it sound authentic. it helps that i'm a big Brand Nubian fan too tho, but i need to check that one out. don't care for the Wu remixes tbh

    Nah I ain't heard the Brand Nubian one. I ain't got any material of there's.
    I'm yet to dip into their catalog, were the opposite cos I'm all over wu remixe's. The El Michaels affair, Wu Mystagogue (more a mix up then re-mix)

    I'm a huge dubstep fan, when I'm not listening to hip-hop, it's nearly all dubstep, but I've heard some tracks from this and really didn't think it sounded that great. It could have been a lot better, but IMO they collaborated with the wrong kind of artists. The us debstep scene is way more focused on 'tear out' 'brostep' artists like skrillix or datsik which some of this sounds like and doesn't work with hiphop.

    The more atmospheric dubby uk artists like digital mystikz, early skream or leofah or the dungeon sound that dj youngsta is pushing would have worked far better. I haven't heard the brand Nubian one tbh.

    Dubstep is played out. Especially the tracks that are just straight wobble. I can make that shit on ableton in like 5 minutes if I really wanted to hear it... IMO the only dubstep worth a shit is those dark sparse tracks actually based off of dub which I stopped seeing a while ago. This whole album just reached me a little too late to cash in on the wobble brostep fad... not impressed

    I'm not a dubstep fan or anything but still I really liked the overall vibe of the album. And to be honest theres some of the tracks on there that I like better than the original versions. 3.75/5
