The selection above is directly inspired by DJ Struggle's 2007 mix Struggle Dubs 5. It used to be hosted on insectmind.com, but has since disappeared from the internet. One transition - Octagon to You Bring Me Down - was lifted straight from Struggle's mix.
More broadly, Struggle Dubs 5 was the first time I'd heard dubstep that referenced the dub techno sound. 2562's Aerial, in particular is very good at this. It's a sound I still very much like, even if it's maybe a bit dated now.
A bit of a messy mix (I shouldn't have played Isn't It Time), but hopefully still enjoyable.
