"DZA is central to the How2make crew which ties the loose ends of bass music in Moscow, organises parties and pushes Russian talents. He is the networking type with his hands and heads in different projects at the same time." His new album or mixtape I should say is entitled, Five-finger Discount, it's filled with beats, loops, and more beats. He's really something. Download his new album at it's entirety below...
DZA - Five-finger Discount

Dam-Funk drops a new tune. Keeping true to his funky-groove, synth-fly, pure smooth step sound; 'IHopeYouKnowImWatchingJune' is definitely one of my favorite songs by him.
Dam-Funk - IHopeYouKnowImWatchingJune
Kid Cudi and Chip tha Ripper cover of LCD Soundsystem's, 'Dance Yrself Clean'! This is probably one of my favorite songs of 2010 and this cover is pretty awesome, I like what Cudi did to it.

Vancouver's Babe Rainbow aka Cameron Reed released his, Shaved EP, on Warp Records back in February. I had heard many good things about the EP so recently i actually sat down and gave each track a close listen, it put me into a different dimension. He takes raw ambient sounds and infuses it with dark, dub, wobble rifts; puts you into a electronic gaze. I can go on for days about this guys music, so listen for yourself. Below is one my favorite tunes from his new Ep as well as an awesome cover he did for Wavves, 'Weed Demon', last year.
Babe Rainbow - Screwby

If you've never heard of dubstep and would like to get a feel for the genre, check out this mix that Doctor P did for GetDarker mag. This online magazine is devoted to dubstep and UK underground culture, really cool shit. First 30 seconds of listening to this mix I was blown away to how filthy it was just spewing out of my speakers with grime and dub. Listen for yourself...

Annie Mac debuts Maya's new single, XXXO, on Radio 1, which is out officially on iTunes tomorrow! It's definitely different than anything she has done before and thats what I love about her, she is always putting out new tunes out that sound so fresh and unique. Definitely one of her most mainstream sounding tracks. I cannot wait for her new album to come out!
M.I.A. - XXXO (Radio Rip)

London's rising dubstep producer, James Blake, is to drop a new EP! I just recently got a hold of his, CMYK EP, which is due May 31. Blake brings dub, experimental, R&B/soul into one creating a totally different atmosphere for the listener; you can really get lost into his tunes. 'CMYK' is probably my favorite song off the EP, take a listen...

Last night I decided to go to CONTROL at the Avalon in Hollywood. I wasn't expecting much from it but I was wrong, PANTyRAiD started doing their gig and they killed their whole set it was amazing playing everything from grimey wobble dub to experimental electronic sounds mashed up with some mainstream hip - hop, they blew me away. Daedelus of course tore the place down with his crazy skills, overall amazing shit, check out this PANTyRAiD mixtape that they put out for XLR8R mag last year...
