These days you can’t sneeze without someone remixing it. But it’s not all bad. Because for every DJ churning out bland, samey, house music there’s a Mizuki, a Rusko, a Chase and a Status. And likewise, for every boring bit of home DIY equipment, there’s a Dubstepladder.
More Skrillex than Screwfix, this brilliant bit of kit lets you churn out completely original dubstep tunes as you climb up and down it. Each of the pressure-sensitive rungs is pre-programmed to play a 5-second burst of grimy, bass-heavy gibberish as you step on it. And with a built-in modulation interface at the top you can even tweak them as you work. Step up and down and piece together a pounding, electro-cacophony to rival your dubstep heroes! Well, it beats listening to the window cleaner’s whistle.
But don’t go thinking all of this technobobbins comes at the expense of safety. Thanks to non-slip rubber dampeners under the feet, the only wobble you’re likely to feel is when the drop kicks in. And it’s even coated in electroluminescent paint, so you can always find it in your UK garage.
