With London club Fabric currently fighting its closure, many artists and producers who have played at the club have contributed a track each to help cover the significant legal costs involved in the fight to stop the revoke of the license by Islington Council and the closure of the club.

The 111-track #SaveFabric compilation featuring tracks from Clams Casino, Clark, Skream, Machinedrum, Ikonika, Addison Groove, Skream, Vex’d, Kuedo and many more. Download it via Bandcamp, iTunes or Fabric’s site.

Fabric’s Shaun Roberts speaks at Metropolis today about the club’s woes.

After some conversations with friends about dubstep recently, I thought I’d put up some tunes from last year to serve as a catchup/beginners guide to the genre and its surrounds. I’m by no means an expert but over the next two pages you’ll find my favourites from Burial, Zomby, Joker, Peverelist, Benga, Skream, Samiyam, Darkstar, 2000F, Joy Orbison, King Midas Sound, Kode 9, Guido and more.

Please put your own must-listens in the comments.

Burial (with Four Tet)

Enigmatic dubstepper Burial and electronic experimentaller Four Tet combined on a 12″ last year which had two tracks at 18 minutes in length total. ‘Moth’ was the standout track of the two (the other being ‘Wolf Cub’). Perfectly combining Four Tet’s ability to chop up percussion samples in inventive ways with Burial’s ability to produce some growling yet almost supernatural sub-bass. (more…)

“I was confused when I first heard this: all of a sudden, our song sounded like a Bone Thugs record. That’s because I couldn’t hear Skream’s satanic sub-bass on my computer speakers. Then I switched systems and it made perfect sense. Play this loud and you’ll hear all the hypnotic qualities you’d expect from the grand wizard of UK dubstep.”

Dave 1 of Chromeo

Another great remix from Skream.
