“Dubstep was the genre from London. Now you can’t find any dubstep there at all.”
London-based crossover electronic/dubstep act Modestep formed in 2010, features Josh Friend and Pat Lundy. Modestep debuted in February 2011 with “Feel Good,” a bursting single that reached the Top Ten of the U.K. dance chart and crossed into the Top 40 of the main pop chart. August’s “Sunlight,” released on Polydor, was more aggressive — to a piercing extent — and fared even better; it peaked in the Top 20 of the pop chart as the group was plotting the release of its debut full-length. After some delays, that album, Evolution Theory, arrived in February 2013. Most recently they moved to LA and signed with Disciple.
