There is not such thing as "good dubstep." It's not a real thing.

What if "good dubstep" (UK) and "bad dubstep" (US) are fundamentally nothing alike?

I know that, but they've both been, for the most part, categorised under the label of dubstep, a term that has been rendered relatively meaningless.

Overgrown was a completely different record to his self-titled anyway.

Lemel, asking a purely theoretical question. Obviously, the spirit of Desert Island is to use officially released tracks because conversations about "THIS IS THE ABSOLUTE BESTEST VERSION OF CHAMPAGNE SUPERNOVA, PERFORMED IN BRUGES IN 1996 YOU FUCKING SCRUB" are kind of asinine.

But a number of bands have begun the process of releasing all of their live concerts in a sort of official bootleg series. (such as the Live Phish series.) Does that mean that any of the tracks officially released in this manner could be used within DI?

Pretty sure live tracks have always been allowed if they've appeared on an official release.

Yuss, but the question is whether that would be a specifically constructed official release (a la a live album) that is released in stores, promoted, or whether it can also be part of an official bootleg series that is only available to that niche fan.

As those releases are officially recognized by the band itself, I see nothing wrong with using them. Hell, they're not free. It's a bitch to make a live track fit, but it's totally within the rules to use them. Same deal with fanclub releases.

i like dubstep, both the original UK variety and the americanized "brostep." my playlist will have some chillstep, which is basically just the same 140bpm half time tempo as dubstep but not so much with the wubs. atmospheric, melodic stuff. you wouldn't know it was actually a sub-genre of dubstep if i didn't tell ya

I just had the sadistic and brief idea of taking the longest Phish song and making everyone listen to an hour of improv. As interesting as it is to hear, not suitable for this competition...
