Honestly, I think it's one of the awesomest things when a drummer has the ability and knows how to adjust to fit this type of music. This isn't my favorite genre by any means, but I like it when someone knows how to accompany EVERYTHING including this type of busy bass heavy techno music.

I really like what this guy did http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hugfqkUzRvU

Good friends of mine produce dubstep music (At the bottom of the the post I'll post some of their stuff in case anyone is curious) and I've seen seen them work on it, and it's more difficult than I thought it would have been. I started getting into it more then, not in a way that I listened to it at home, but on parties it's amazing. It has something to it that no other electronic music has, it's actually more musical and interesting than all that techno-trance-house garbage on the radio. One of my friends even called it "Rock of the 21st Century", and in some ways I agree with him.

I might be recording some real drums for my friend's Dubstep group Dyssebia, that I mentioned before. They have a very rocky approach to dubstep, so maybe if you want to hear it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xenSGJ3J01E&feature=relmfu

Cheers!

I am far more impressed with someone capable of playing this than dub step.

An ethical sympathy in an artist is an unpardonable mannerism of style. No artist is ever morbid. The artist can express everything.

Of course, this is drumming at a whole different level, dubstep covers don't really compare. But even with that said, I think it's cool that dubstep opened up this sort of new genre of music for drummers to jam to and how it intermingles real-life drums with electronic music. It's a cool contrast, a bit like what Jojo Mayer is doing with (the electro group) Nerve.

I don't think Cobus' cover is the best thing ever, but I'm happy when someone can make a genre that I despise bearable.

Apples to oranges. I liked both.
