10 Free Electronic Dubstep Albums To Download [Sound Sunday]

Tina Sieber 08-09-2013

Sound Sunday caters to all tastes. Apparently, our technologically minded audience most appreciates electronic music, which is reflected in high numbers of shares. Hence we continue to explore this genre with another fabulous dubstep edition.


There also is an underlying theme in this edition: Do what you love! In case you didn’t know this secret recipe already, I recommend listening to the Intro track of SniteVille’s In The Mist Of Darkness Vol.1.

Like other genres better? Make sure you let us know by sharing or commenting next time I cover it! As always, I’m open to suggestions and feedback, which you can deliver via the comments or email to tina at this domain.

One EP, six highly acclaimed albums and two compilations in 6 years – as well as 4 massive worldwide clubhits (…) – have moved the project from Hamburg/Germany into the limelight of the harder electro scene.

We haven’t attempted to follow the compositional rules and expectations of the makam tradition – we simply don’t have the knowledge and we may have made mistakes – but we believe that breaking free of our Western tempered tuning opens up a whole unexplored world of musical possibility.”

    If you guys are looking for some great downloadable dubstep mixes, check out Excision's yearly "Shambhala" mixes. 2012 and 2013 make for some pretty sick driving music!

    I'm a downloader also. I don't grab everything, only what sounds interesting from the description and then listen later. I might stream at my home desktop, but not at work or on my phone.

    I like to download them and add them to my music archives. I do not always have the means to stream when I am out and about and I can see data usage being a issue for many.

    I check'em out first.. but do not download, until I find them awesome. So, no problem to me. (But my opinion is confined to me). Just do not cut mentioning the albums, genre and the link where we can find more of its kind. Thanks. :)

      I check them out during the week and download only if I find I like the music. If suitable, I pass them on to friends whose taste stray in the direction of a particular genre.

    I generally download the albums and listen to them throughout the next week while driving. Streaming only options would limit my discovery of new music.
