It was a night that turned out to be an enlightening journey accompanied by an incredible array of music that morphed and transformed perceptions of electronic music’s “status quo.” Read the full details after the jump…

Vinyl collectors listen up! UK legends, Massive Attack and Burial, have recently collaborated on a limited edition 12″ release, featuring Burial’s incredible new takes on ’4 Walls’ and ‘Paradise Circus.’ As you can imagine, this is no ordinary vinyl release. Pressed on 180g heavyweight vinyl, each of the 1000 records is wrapped in a gold-glitter screen printed sleeve designed by Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja, and hand-numbered for that extra touch that collectors covet. At over 11 minutes for each song, these two tracks are undoubtedly epics and The Vinyl Factory has done a great job in putting all the pieces together. Pre-order yours at the Vinyl Factory website today.

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!

From Ontario, Canada, Zeds Dead are producing some colossus dubstep tunes at the moment. They caught my eye back in April when I first heard the ‘Gimme Shelter’ remix – Since then, they’ve dropped a killer remix of Massive Attack‘s ‘Paradise Circus’ and more recently, ‘Eyes On the Fire’ originally by Blue Foundation. Huge fan of all of the above. If I were starting a dub label, I’d move to Canada, because the quality of unsigned dubstep coming out of there right now is unreal. Check those guys out, and if you dig them, check out Knight Riderz & Sub Antix as well.

Datsik released some free remixes a few weeks back via his facebook group. His MGMT & Coldplay remixes aren’t so hot, but this one is:
Bar9 have also just dropped a free banger via their Soundcloud. Lately their productions have been utter fire, and this one’s is no different:
Big ups to Rub-a-dub-dub for the heads up on this track.

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.
