The Wu-Tang does DUBSTEP!!!!!

Yes, the Wu-Tang Clan has found its way to the world of dubstep, through the release of “Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture Vol. 2: Enter The Dubstep”. It’s a full album containing 19 of their tracks, remixed by artists like DZ, Excision & DatsiK, Matt U, Stenchman, Evol Intent and many more. 
This is a fantastic move from a Hip-Hop group that has never successfully crossed the tight wire of mainstream stardom. Their monstrous success has however been found in the narrowcasted audiences who have been turning off their radios and rarely shadowing the door of MTV.  The Wu navigate the slaloms of psychotic mediocrity with the reflexes and prowess of a downhill skier.  All the will pulling millions from various niche markets down the slopes with them.  It's collaboration like this that gets me excited - cross genre pollinating.  This is a gigantic "middle finger" to all of the hipster purists and borderline prejudice segregation-minded music lovers.  Those who believe music can only be enjoyed in certain genre's purest forms and only performed by those musicians pre-approved by the hierarchical hipster echelon.  This is creativity and ingenuity at its best.
Here’s a link to the Wu’s explanation of the album.  “this one of a kind compilation is at the forefront of an emerging cultural and musical blend that is taking place on the margins of the mainstream, but will be talked about for years to come….”

Here is a track from the forthcoming album
Go buy this album and support creative venture like this one and many others bold enough to blur the borders of music genres.

ADDED BONUS: Fantastic old school remix of C.R.E.A.M. by  Terry Cole.  This'ns obviously not on the album, just wanted to share it because it's so good, plus I like you!
