I've been waiting for the past few months for the line-up of Global Gathering, a dance music festival in the UK, to be announced, and soon the wait will be over as on Friday they are releasing the full line-up.

Funtcase - a Dubstep producer and DJ, has self confirmed, so today I'm posting one of his latest tunes. This ones not really his typical style, but is quite deep and dark. 
His DJ sets are always energetic and get the crowd going, so i'm looking forwards to seeing him at global gathering!

Emalkay's new tune, Fabrication, Out now on Dub Police

I'm posting an Emalkay track today, as he was on Radio1 with Annie Mac last night, and also played at Hit n Run in Manchester, so was a busy guy last night!

Emalkay pretty much rose to fame when he released 'When I Look At You' on the dub police label in late 2009. Pretty much every DJ at the time was dropping it all over the place, so he got alot of recognition from that track. Over the past year or so he's had another few releases with tunes such as 'Crusader' and 'Battle Suit' and this is his latest track which has just been released.

Can be found on iTunes here

Mala - Alicia

Stolen from Wiki -

Digital Mystikz are a dubstep production duo (consisting of Mala and Coki – when the two started making music together as teenagers they were known as Malibu and Coke) from the South London suburb of Norwood. Along with Loefah and Sgt. Pokes, they operate the DMZ record label and host the influential bimonthlynightclub DMZ, held at the Mass club complex in BrixtonLondon. Legendary BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel, was an early supporter of Digital Mystikz, eventually putting them in his annual 2004 Top 50 list at #29. They are among the scene's most famous producers. Their song "Anti War Dub" appeared in the 2006 film "Children of Men," although it wasn't included in the soundtrack. In the summer of 2008, Mala was chosen to headline the night portion of the Sónar Festival in Barcelona.

Skream - Midnight Request Line

 Right today i'm posting a track by Skream, pretty much one of the creators of the genre of dubstep back in 2000.
Released on Tempa records, it's known as one of the biggest tunes in dubstep to this date. Pushed boundary's that hadn't   been broken before and was a massive hit.

quick bio

Ollie Jones had the good fortune to be working at the Big Apple record store when he first started making beats at age 15 and armed with a cracked copy of the Fruity Loops music-making software. Big Apple was at the center of the early development of U.K. garage's dark, half-speed offshoot dubstep before it was even called dubstep, and it was at Big Apple that Jones, who recorded as Skream, met fellow beatsmiths Benga and Hatcha. Hatcha was a DJ at the seminal club Forward and was only too happy to debut the dubplates of both Skream and Benga's early recordings. Their music took the tension and release formula of dance music, removed the release and layered in more tension instead. With slow and pounding basslines and wobbly treble they were creating a kind of music that summoned and summed up feelings of urban paranoia, but in an enjoyable way. Emphasizing the sub-bass made them popular with clubbers, but they were also popular with bloggers. Championed and spread by word of mouth on the Internet Skream went straight from being a name in Croydon to being known around the world. When the owner of Big Apple founded a label to give a home to the albums of dubstep artists,Skream was one of those who released material on it, including his breakout classic track "Midnight Request Line." His first full-length album, Skream!, was released in 2006 on the Tempa label.

Flux Pavillion's much awaited track, 'Bass Cannon'

for the past few months, there have been various copies of Flux Pavillion's tune Bass Cannon floating around YouTube, all pretty rubbish quality though.

Finally after a long wait, it has been released and is storming up the iTunes download chart, and is currently number 2 in the dance chart.

There are mixed opinions of the track throughout the dubstep community, labelling it 'brostep' and 'aload of screeching noises' by the loyal deep sub deep bass dubsteppers.
On the other hand there are all the fanboys who think its the best track in the world and nothing can come close to it.

There's always going to be a divide, but in my opinion, it's a good club track for a rave, but nothing amazingly special.

Caspa Classic

Easily the biggest caspa release of recent times I think. Louder stands head and shoulders above alot of his stuff from the last year or so.
Released 21st January 2008
