Get Darker

About Us

We're all about that bass

An online magazine dedicated to all things bass, dubstep and grime, GetDarker was established in 2002 during dark garage and dubstep’s nascent chapters. Being there from the very beginning has ensured the brand’s position as the most respected portal on 21st century bass culture.

Formerly known as DarksideRiddem, the brand developed with monthly shows with London’s iconic broadcaster Rinse FM. Rebranding as GetDarker in 2006, the brand – captained by internationally renowned DJ Darkside – has been respected and acknowledged as the independent authority on dubstep and grime’s widest fringes with its weekly GetDarkerTV webcasts, its series of numerous top selling compilations, international events, editorial news and interviews and GetDarker record label that’s dedicated to supporting the most exciting talent in the scene.

This Is Dubstep 2011

After a hectic year in 2010, GetDarker reduced their This Is series to one a year, squeezing every ounce of sub frequency out of the 12 months that have passed. As with previous compendiums, This Is Dubstep 2011 ensured a vast and varied spread over two chest-pummelling CDs, enjoyed top 10 status in the UK compilation charts in the process.
