Actual colors may vary’s “Best of 2011″ Post-Dubstep | Skweee | Electronic Pop

Even though we’re aware most people are following “Actual colors may vary” because of our photography features, we would like to share some of our favorite music in 2011 (although some tracks are from late 2010 and early 2012).

We would like to introduce you to a wide spectrum of electronic music that could be filed mostly under “Dubstep” even though this categorisation would be too general and ignore the fact that this postmodern genre mixes so many influences apart from Dub und 2-Step that it would better be called “Post-Dubstep” and even that would be misleading. Listen to young producers from Norway, Finland, USA, Belgium, Russia, Japan, Romania, UK, Brasil, Lithuania and Germany experimenting with new sound aesthetics that could be blueprints for future pop music.

In case you’re interested please follow Oliver’s and ACMV’s profile on Soundcloud and listen to even more of our favorites.

If you are annoyed that you have to start each track manually you can listen to an automatically playing list here.

The Ebb Tide

“They are old ships behind the floodgates,
Lurking in the silt and mire;
Rust on their anchor, mud on their bows,
Their decks unpainted and their sails in rags:
They lean to one side as though arthritis
Had claimed their limbs, paralysed now
They’ve forgotten the sea except when the flood-gate
Lets a hint of the tide reach them. […]”
