I'm just going to come out and say it: Dubstep has fallen embarrassingly off track. What started off as a promising subgenre made from equal parts Jamaican dub and UK garage has quickly devolved into a frenzy of grating chainsaw noises and macho chest bumps. The warmth and groove that defines the bass sound of traditional dub got lost somewhere in the shuffle, and tonight is a rare chance for redemption. Dub pioneer (and King Tubby protégé) Scientist is teaming up with dubstep contemporary Alter Echo for a first-time live collaboration. As source material, the two will mix only elements of songs released by Portland's Lodubs Records–a label that has adamantly resisted the dubstep dumb-down–including upcoming material that hasn't come out yet. This all came about because the infamous and elusive Scientist contacted Lodubs claiming he could bring out "a hidden third dimension" in the label's sound. True story. AVA HEGEDUS
