Kendrick Lamar – Section.80 [FLAC] →
Kendrick Lamar is a weird kid, and rap music could always use more weird kids. The 24-year-old is a Compton native with a budding and mysterious Dr. Dre connection, but there’s little-to-no link to his hometown’s gangsta-funk legacy in his music. Instead, Lamar is very much a product of the late blog-rap era— an introverted loner type who’s willing to talk tough but is...
Jacques Greene - Greene 01 [V0] →
*Limited whitelabel of re-works from Jacques Greene fresh off his Radiohead remixing duties…* Canada’s most in-demand beat maker drop three coveted R&B edits on blink ‘n miss white label. The sampled material is fairly big-time, and the reworks are suitably juicy. A-side is a booty shufflin’, acid-tweaked and so, so sweet rework of ‘What U R’, while on...
Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi – Rome [FLAC] →
Never one to stand stylistically still for more than the length of a studio session, the only real thread tying Brian ‘Danger Mouse’ Burton’s career together is his unending striving to reach the outer limits of contemporary pop. Offering the world game-changing bootleg hip hop, the best Gorillaz album yet and effortless hitmakers Gnarls Barkley weren’t his only outlets,...

Horsepower Productions – Damn It / Kingstep [FLAC] →
In case you didn’t know, Horsepower Productions are one of the foundational dubstep forefathers alongside El-B and Zed Bias, releasing the first bits of wax on Tempa records with the terrific ‘Gorgon Sound’ and generally laying the groundwork for a generation of stepping dubheads. ‘Damn It’ is the crew’s shocking return to form for 2009, some 9 years after...
Purity Ring - Ungirthed →
It’s always fascinating how the emotional context to a particular sound can change based on what else happens to be going on in the frame. In the case of “Ungirthed”, what seems to be the first track from a new project started by a member of spazzy electro-pop outfit Gobble Gobble, the transformed sound in question is the sort of pitched-down post-Burial ghost voices that in...
123Mrk - Noname EP  [EP]  →
123mrk is a producer from Marseille who just tossed out some of the most engrossing, intelligent post-dub material I have heard on a soundcloud, which is coincidentally being released through Infinite Machine Records today. Noname is filled with clear, pitch shifted melodies and vocal samples that breathe fresh air into a form previously defined by artists such as Mount Kimbie, Ifan Dafydd,...
Lil Wayne - Carter lV [V0] [Deluxe Edition] →
DFRNT – Lounge / Wake Up  →
The third release from Echodub DFRNT’s second Echodub release ‘EDUB003’, brings us more of that spacey, chilled atmospheric, yet melodic production, coupled with fellow label-mate King slaFF’s re-working skills. ‘Lounge’ is a smooth organ-led exploration in to downtempo dubstep, with an ethereal synth line sitting over a beat which would best be described...
Zomby – Mu5h / Spliff Dub (Rustie Remix)  →
A two-track split featuring Rustie on the B-Side. “Mu5h” is an epic bleep bloop blorp symphony of sorts, complete with slow/steady build-up and constant dramatics, like, think 8bit stepper paired with sci-fi/future-ghetto/23rd century-sounding Bach. On the B-side, the Rustie remix of “Spliff Dub” takes a sort of 270 degree turn with heavy usage of vocal samples while...

Darkstar - Squeeze My Lime
Cessman vs. Joe Ariwa - Shanker   →
Roots and Future clash on a heavy dubstep plate outta South London. At Ariwa studios Cessman and Joe Ariwa laid down four tracks of crushing bass weight headed up with the standardly effective ‘Skanker’, plus a dubbed out ‘Emperor Selassie I’, and the more soulful vocal lead ‘Wicked Man’ featuring Queen Omega and the morphing delays and FX treatments of ...
Distance - My Demons   →
After a series of 12 inches on revered dubstep labels like Hotflush, Tectonic and Boka, producer DJ Distance (here credited as simply Distance) joins the heavyweight Planet Mu roster for his debut LP. Those new to the dubstep genre, which at times suffers for its homogeny, will find all of dubstep’s hallmarks in full effect - shedloads of subwoofer-pummelling bass, face-slapping snares...
