This might or might not be the most interesting Dubstep mix / compilation you’ve ever heard, in any event however it’s the most uncommon one, I guess. Blending unique elements ofÂ global roots music from all over the world with massive Dubstep trademark sounds, thisÂ is certainly one of the most innovative projects in electronic music I’ve stumbled upon in a while.
Transnational Dubstep is a 15-track compilation put together by DJ UMB of Generation Bass fame in cooperation with Six Degrees Records, showcasing the most exciting producers in alternative Dubstep. Apart from the usual wobbles and filthy Dubstep sounds, Transnational Dubstep draws on a wide repertoire of pan flutes, sitars and ukuleles, re-interpreting roots music from China, India, Africa, South America and the Balkans. Here’s a promo/teaser mix DJ UMB has put together for you to get a first taste of the “fusion between a globe-spanning palette of ethnic sounds and the digitally rendered sub-sonic science of 21st century dubstep”.
As an extra bonus, here’s a full 320k download of the compilation’s bonus track – an amazing Flamenco-inspired relaxed Dubstep jam by Miami-based Pan Agnostix.
