It’s scandalous that I have not yet mentioned the greatness of the FACT magazine website or dubstep blog Sonic Router. FACT are an independent, London-based free magazine who also run a clear, comprehensive and most importantly REGULARLY UPDATED website covering most contemporary leftfield musics with with a dancefloor bias. Of particular note are their superb series of free, commissioned DJ mixes available to download from the site, provided by a series of reliably interesting up-and-coming artists. The latest one is from Rinse FM DJ Alexander Nut whose R&B tinged take on the new wave of broken hip-hop, synthed out dubstep and 2-stepped house is a real luxury.

Sonic Router is a dubstep orientated and once again REGULARLY UPDATED source for news, videos and mixtapes from the UK bass world. One of the latest is from Berkane Sol / Ramp affiliate Shortstuff whose mix caught my eye due to the inclusion of the better examples of Funky (Hard House Banton’s ‘Sirens’, Lil’ Silva’s ‘Seasons’, Roska’s ‘Our Father’) blended with some quality skippy dubstep (Peverelist, Pangaea) and personal favourites ‘2 Bad Mice’ and the classic Menta remix of DJ Zinc’s ‘Tonka’. Get on it!
