Timbaland: “The UK Scene, They’re Always Telling Me That I Started It..."
Timbo claims that he invented dubstep.
Super-producer Timbalandwas recently in the UK to promote a new project with MINI and in an interview at the event, the rapper/producer claimed that he made dubstep, reports RWD Magazine.
Speaking to George Lamb, Timbo said: “The UK scene, they’re always telling me that I started it. You have Dub-bass.”
George then intervened and said: "Dubstep?"
Timbo then continued: “Yeah, dubstep. but I call it dub-bass [as the room laugh]. It’s the bass that drives the music. Its funny cos they went back to some of my old music that really created that sound and just, instead of going fast, they went slow with more bass. To me, I like it but they call it dubstep. I like how they dance to it now, it’s cool.”
Timbo must have had a few to drink when saying all of this. Surely?
