The Canadian future bass producing duo, Knight Riderz, are making quite the name for themselves in the low end department of electronic music. Unlike their fellow maple leaf brethren, Zeds Dead, they center their style on a mid-tempo, crunked-out sound that is influenced by the punchy beats of hip-hop. If you haven’t heard their album, 12th Dimension, released via Muti Music, you should definitely check it out along with their awesome remix for the new Death of Summer EP of the Venice, California hip-hop duo, King Fantastic. Grab the remix, indulge in some of my old favorites, and keep an eye out this week for some freebies on their Facebook page for reaching 1,000 likes!

For all you UK based dirty dancers and even beyond that, any dubstep or garage fan to be honest; On Friday it was announced that London’s biggest pirate radio station, the legendary Rinse FM is going legit after finally being granted a broadcasting license. For those who don’t know about Rinse, it’s been running since ’94 and is responsible for giving airplay to grime, garage and dubstep, where mainstream radio wouldn’t. This move is going have an effect in bringing dubstep, future garage and uk funky even further into the limelight, which is wicked news as it’ll give producers the props they deserve for the tunes we listen to. You can stream Rinse online worldwide at rinse.fm – Their Stellar Sessions are fiyah, so check those out.
