duploc.com is renowned to be one of the leading references in dubstep. Originally we launched our brand in 2012 as a promotional outlet to discover talent and push innovative content. Meanwhile we expanded to a full-fledged platform with our own live events, a prestigious record label “DUPLOC” and a respected online magazine. Most important it is our ambition to give the listener a complete and dependable definition of dubstep with respect to the sound system culture.

duploc.com has been founded at the end of 2012 by the 25-year-old Belgian Pieter Grauwels. It all started with the launch of a simple YouTube channel. Alongside promoting (exclusive) content from artists and record labels, several side-projects were developed to support the music which was being pushed. Launching this website in June 2013, through which reviews and interviews are being published, has been an essential part in the platform’s growing process. Other worth-mentioning projects are the podcast series, the “Best of duploc.com” album series and duploc.com’s yearly mixes.

Apart from the online aspect, Pieter Grauwels – under the alias of DUPLOC – is also taking bookings as DJ since 2013. From 2014 on duploc.com has been working with quite a few organizations in diverse European countries to set up its very own events, for which the Belgian team invites their artists to play live. The platform also established a webshop through which merch is being distributed worldwide.

In 2015 duploc.com eventually launched its very own record label, through which two-track singles are released with a certain regularity. On the 2nd of October 2017, celebrating its fifth anniversary, the official debut album entitled “5 Years of duploc.com album” was available in all stores.

Together with all these projects, duploc.com’s main focus obviously remains on promoting quality and original content in order to reach listeners worldwide with a diversity of dubstep sounds and give them a complete and dependable definition of dubstep with respect to the soundsystem culture.
