Georg Gatsas went in search of the protagonists of the electronic dance music known as dubstep for this series, portraying the scene’s producers and dancers in images of intimate instantaneity. Considered a late successor to jungle, dubstep arose in the early 2000s as the sound of South London, a bass-heavy, decidedly melancholic hybrid of the older genre of dub with various forms of electronic music. Gatsas focuses especially on the scene in connection with record labels in London and Berlin, exploring how this bass-fuelled, conspicuously anti-celebrity underground can be seen as the last sub-culture to be linked to a certain urbanity that nevertheless eludes localisation.
