This si the first project to return to the nascent dubstep scene circa 2000 - 04 to document its birth. From El-B to Horsepower, Artwork, Skream, Digital Mystikz, Benga, Zed Bias and more these are classics steeped in the memories of FWD>> at the velvet rooms, Ghost live at the Big Apple christmas party or Hatcha behind the counter at Croydon's now defunct vinyl emporium. These are the Roots Of Dubstep.
