It has been a long time coming. Birmingham producer ENiGMA Dubz has not only influenced dubstep as a genre, he truly shaped the duploc.com platform from literally the very beginning, going back all the way to October 2012 when he was featured with the channel’s first ever upload.
Along the way several releases from ENiGMA Dubz have been pushed on platform while the support and respect have been mutual. ENiGMA Dubz did already work together with the DUPLOC imprint as well a few times, although now he is releasing his first ever solo vinyl record and of course that is coming through on DUPLOC. For “DUPPLATES Vol. 4” he carefully prepared a collection of his absolute finest productions. Expect a mixture of raw cuts as well as heavyweight rollers with "The Eyes" holding an iconic sound on his full-fledged 12-inch debut plate.

The Belgian record label returns to Bristol for volume number three in their vinyl series. Back in 2016, dubstep champion Rygby was signed to DUPLOC for his very first official release, pioneering in the field of spooky distorted low frequencies. His most recent of the several appearances on the label has been the digital DUPLOC022 outing through which he truly developed a unique sound. Now he proudly contributes to the label's brand new DUPPLATES series with an impressive cohesive collection of probably his hottest material till date. DUPLOCv003 is all about catchy melodies, boiling vibes and heavyweight sub bass pressure.

Let's go back to the beginning of 2018 when three dubstep enthusiasts from the States started their collective alias Ternion Sound. It was a no-brainer for record label DUPLOC to immediately sign the trio for their fist ever official EP, considering the label is always up for supporting and giving opportunities to new talent. Driven by their genuine passion for the genre, Ternion Sound quickly followed up DUPLOC021 with other iconic releases on a few of the leading dubstep imprints which are Chestplate and Artikal Music UK. Fast forward to January 2019, they return to DUPLOC to release four of their hottest dubstep cuts.

Released 28th September 2018
Belgium’s most praised dubstep label DUPLOC has been consistently releasing two-track singles since 2015. The imprint curated by platform duploc.com now announces the launch of a new 12" vinyl release series. Catalogued as DUPLOCv001, the first EP features no one less than label resident Hebbe. The Dutch up-and-comer was introduced to DUPLOC in the beginning of 2018 with DUPLOC020, as he was signed to Crucial Recordings and Artikal Music UK short after. Now he returns to the label for the first volume of the new DUPPLATES series.
“Watch Out” is one of Hebbe’s most anticipated tracks as a chest-oppressive weighty sub bass rolls through a distorted landscape of cinematic samples and sinister melodies which are constantly progressing. Of course resident ENiGMA Dubz has to be involved in this first instalment as he delivers an incredibly stunning remix, hitting you with pure bassweight and powerful synths. On the flip side, compatriot Melle and the like-minded Mr.K enthusiastically accompany Hebbe to unleash both the bouncing “Wayside” as well as the murky “Lemon Twist”, two highly overdue cuts. The “DUPPLATES Vol. 1” is an essential in your record collection and marks a first much promising episode for the next to come on DUPLOC's prestigious series.

On the 2nd of October 2017 the independent Belgian platform celebrates its 5th anniversary by releasing its debut album. duploc.com, one of the leading references for dubstep worldwide, put together a 15-track compilation full of exclusive content from artists they regularly have been working with. Expect the typical residents such as ENiGMA Dubz, Bukez Finezt, Requake and SubFiltronik - though as usual they also included quite a few upcoming talents.
In general, the album is a proper reflection of both the sound as well as the artists duploc.com has been pushing; since day one they have been known for featuring a rather unconventional and uncommon side of the genre.
Originally duploc.com launched its brand in 2012 as a promotional outlet. Meanwhile they expanded to a currently 50.000-strong community with their own live events, a prestigious record label and a well-respected online magazine. By releasing this debut album, duploc.com looks more determined and passionate than ever to show the listener a true and complete definition of dubstep.
a1. ENiGMA Dubz - Dirty South
a2. LOST - Turmoil
a3. Bukez Finezt - Real 2 Real
b1. Requake - Fear
b2. ARtroniks - Extinction
Released 9th September 2016
duploc.com’s debut 12″ has been a remarkable milestone for the Belgian imprint as Belgium has not seen any dubstep records released on vinyl in four years. Following up the success of DUPLOC012 with ARtroniks, the label gives a second two-tracker a wax treatment. For the next instalment duploc.com introduces upcoming Bristolian talent Rygby, his local environment with its well-respected music culture simply demands for a proper vinyl.
Bristol is the homecity of badman like Kahn, Pinch, Ishan Sound, Joker and Sorrow to name a few, but with Rygby’s first vinyl the spotlight definitely will be turned on him as well. “Poltergeist” probably is the most original track duploc.com signed so far. Though you’ll need to hear and experience it live through a decent sound system to fully understand this one. A very upfront haunting sub bass with the energy to shake up any dance, combined with an extremely unique A-side “Pagan” which perfectly does complement this spooky-sounding record. Or as they’d say in Bristol: Gurt Lush!

Released 1st April 2016
ARtroniks – “Torodial / Shifted” is due to release on the 1st of April 2016, catalogued as DUPLOC012.
duploc.com has been putting out dubstep since April 2015 and to celebrate one year of digitally-released music, the Belgian platform stepped up its game and decided to release its first vinyl record. Founder Pieter Grauwels emphasises that it’s not his ambition to simply be an average digital label and combines that spirit with the aim to provide his artists with a physical format as well. However it’s definitely not evident to release a dubstep vinyl in Belgium, it’s been four years since a Belgian label did so. duploc.com is releasing a 12″ vinyl featuring two highly-anticipated dubplates from none other than resident ARtroniks.
The Ghent-based ARtroniks was featured earlier on duploc.com with appearances on DUPLOC005 and DUPLOC009. Now it’s time to welcome back Belgium’s dubstep frontman with his own proper vinyl. ARtroniks is a well-respected resident in and around Ghent for quite a few events. Though internationally he’s not passing by unnoticed, as the 23-years-old is strongly supported by DJ N-Type and J:Kenzo on their Rinse FM shows. Above all he was the first Belgian who had an episode on GetDarkerTV. Catalogued and titled as DUPLOC012, Torodial and Shifted will be exclusively available on vinyl for two months. A limited edition of 300 copies will be available via all the relevant vinyl stores from the 1st of April 2016. 100% Belgian brewed dubstep.
