Today, the Wu-Tang Clan released a dubstep remix album showcasing many of the sound's more prominent producers entitled Wu-Tang Meets the Indie Culture Vol. 2: Enter the Dubstep. (Released in 2005, the first installment of the series, Wu-Tang Meets the Indie Culture Vol. 1, highlighted underground MCs.) It makes sense that the Wu would be involved in such a project not only because of its risk-taking M.O., but also because the noir brutality of dubstep's sound--Richter scale-registering bass, open expanses of whompy EFX, slo-mo rhythms--complements the Wu's lyrical darkness. And this is a good time generally for the album: one only need review the many dubstep acts on the roster of this year's Decibel Fest to see how popular it has become. You can read the full press release and listen to a few songs here. Hop the jump for the track list.
