Picture 1The Eraser Remixes is a 9 track album of remixes from the 2006 album, ‘The Eraser’ by Thom Yorke of Radiohead. It features a remix of all the tracks apart from the title track and two remixes of Black Swan.

A lot of dubstep traits can be heard in this album and this goes well with Thom Yorke’s already distinct musical and vocal style.

The album can be downloaded through torrent from The Pirate Bay at 320kbps. I’m putting this here because his solo stuff always seems to be very overpriced.

At the bottom are three tracks from the album and here’s the video for the Atoms for Peace (Four Tet Remix)

SkreamDubstep is an electronic genre with roots in garage. It emerged in the early 2000’s but is still considered to be an “underground” genre. Dubstep is defined by its syncopated sparse rhythms, deep rolling bass lines and dark sound. Those who don’t get dubstep will probably just write it off as boring but in my opinion, it’s one of the most interesting genres.

Skream, is widely regarded as the most prominent dubstep producer. He released a full album ‘Skream!’ in 2006 and has brought out a bundle of tracks on singles, EP’s and on dubstep compilation albums. Skream! is a great album and the songs varying greatly whilst still keeping the same dubstep feel. 

There are also many dubstep podcasts available through itunes for free. Dub War NYC has so far produced 7 podcasts, each around an hour long. http://www.dubstep.fm is also a site with loads of free dubstep material.
