Dubstep Monday @ Generation Bass.
I’m a huge Tango fan. From the time I first heard Astor Piazzolla I fell in love with this timeless genre.
On these compilations I introduced the world for the first time to a whole host of new and underground electro-tango artists from Buenos Aires and other places around the world.
I made lots of new friends, especially in Argentina and of course that’s how I also met Juan Data as he was involved in co-managing Koxmoz who worked with Gotan Project on one track.
So I’ve been waiting around for a grittier, darker and more underground Tango dance genre to develop. There’s already been Electro Dub Tango tracks by the likes of the Gotan Project and Jimena Fama but no Tango Dubstep.
Then the Zombie Disco Squad hinted at the re-emergence of a new Tango Dance genre with their exceptional track, “Eurovision”. But that was not Dubstep.
Now, however, Tango Dubstep seems to be, being born. Here’s a couple of tracks that I’ve found that I really rate and want to hear more of the same.
The first one by Hybu in 2005 claims to be the first ever Tango / Grime & Bass Music Mash-up !
You can download this one:
However, I think this next one by Subsector takes it to the next level and this really is DUBSTEP TANGO but he tells me it’s not the FINISHED version but a DEMO. You can stream it:
I’ll leave you with an Electro-Tango DJ mix that I did some time ago, which was previously posted on here by Vince. It really represents the electro-tango scene up to the 2008 point but does not contain any dubstep tango.
