Optimus Gryme

The sounds of dubstep hail from bedroom studios and pirate radio waves in the UK. Bringing together drum'n'bass, hip hop and 2-Step to brew a spacious, bass heavy formula, dubstep also has a thriving community of supporters here in New Zealand. Charlie Brown is a Waiheke-based dubstep producer who makes music as Optimus Gryme - he caught the ferry over to the Radio New Zealand studios to serve up a dubstep 101.
