"What is Croydon Techno?"

Fuk knows.

Billed as being ‘Straight Outta Croydon’ in last week’s Time Out, Dubstep has now reached The Saturday Telegraph.

Here are some extracts:

“Many of the music’s leading figures are based in the bleak south London suburb of Croydon, leading some to call it “Croydon techno…”

“Dubstep can, at its worst, sound like unfunky white man’s reggae,”


“Fuelled by internet forums and a community spirit that contrasts starkly with the individualism of grime, the music looks set to overcome its problematic name and any residual trainspotting tendencies on its journey to national and international recognition.”
