AllMusic Review by

Generation Dubstep places a heavy emphasis on dubstep remixes of pop singles, which shouldn’t be surprising since it was released through Universal, not one of the heavy-hitting independent dubstep labels. So, for every standout dubstep or post-dubstep track like Joy Orbison’s “Hyph Mngo,” Cosmin TRG’s “See Other People,” and Rusko’s “Woo Boost,” there are several pop-crossover remixes -- many of which are barely dubstep -- including Rihanna’s “Rude Boy [Chew Fu Vitamin S Fix],” La Roux’s "In for the Kill [Skream's Let's Get Ravey Remix],” and Ellie Goulding’s “Starry Eyed [Jakwob Remix].” The best reason to pick this up is the "2000F & J Kamata Mix" of Turboweekend’s “Something or Nothing,” a stunning collision between sophisti-pop (à la the Blue Nile), G-funk, and garage.
