Podcast 4 - Dubstep

It's a cold and rainy morning in Austin. Luckily, I've got just what you need, a bangin' fourth podcast. In this episode I have tried to share a bit of my exploration of a genre that is relatively new to me, dubstep. It's been a couple years since I first heard the name dubstep but recently I feel like it has reached a tipping point in US popularity because I am hearing it all over, in many different forms. Dubstep started and has been huge for a while in the UK. It's quite a jump from the bluegrass you heard last time but that's what the Active Listener Podcast is all about.

I forgot to mention during the first track that the artist, Ultragamma, a Canadian producer, made a mixtape for the Curb-Crawlers blog that you can download for free. If you're into the music on the podcast, I highly recommend the mix. You can see the tracklist on Ultragamma's myspace here ( or you can just get it here( ) Right-click and "Save Link as..." to save the mp3 to your computer instead of streaming.

Thanks for listening. Don't forget to support the artists.
