Quality blog Sonic Router have provided a refreshingly succinct primer on all things forward-thinking in dubstep for the mighty Quietus, which you should all read. There’s some heads-ups on new and forthcoming releases and a few short bios of key artists. Good work all.

Also (also!), head over to subnav.com to grab the bump r funk mix courtesy of DJ Wise aka Bare Bones. More of an upbeat party vibe with the quality end of commercial R&B shifting into sideways hip-hop, Funky and delectable 2-step. Or in his own words:

inspired by the glorious spring weather a healthy dose of caribbean & african influences in a bumping bass heavy mix. starting with some wonked out r&b then moving swiftly into a mash of dancehall & uk funky with a sprinkling of old rave & techno classics. roll on summer!
