2 hour tearout of mutant electronic half-step, dubwise bleeps and other subsonic weapons...
[artist biog: Skream]
His clipped, techy minimal style became a trademark sound. Long before grime existed, it reflected dark murky streets and sinister nights, the sound of decaying London and its frustrated communities, stuck out in satellite towns and sink estates with nothing but a PC and freely
available software to channel their frustration into. Stuck in front of a PC for days on end, that's exactly what Skream did.
Then two years ago Digital Mystikz burst onto the dubstep scene, expanding the sound with new flavours and vivid colours. Skream became even more inspired. It not like he wasn't prolific already - rumour has it he's made over 1500 tracks - but out poured a host of bright
new tracks from the wonderkid. "Indian remix" took him into trippy Asian territories, "Cheeky..." into Arabia, his unreleased mixes of Sunship fused Jamaican dancehall smut with hooky Kraftwerk melodies. "Smiling Face" broke out cheerful reggae skanks on dancefloors.
But his biggest tune was yet to come. Enter Midnight Request Line - on Tempa records - an anthemic explosion of electro arpeggios and dub sub-bass. It's a tune you can sing along to: Skream has it as his own ringtone. When it got dropped by DJ Youngsta at club Forward» grime dons Wiley, Jammer and the rest of Roll Deep began to shock out, flashing their lighters out of hard earned respect. The flip of this mighty release is bassline boomer "I," an excursion into deep dub basslines and shifting cinematic textures.

[artist biog: Scan One]
Gritty cinematic breakbeats laced with crisp electronica edits and reinforced with London-bred basslines. This is the sound of Scan One.
Forging the Combat sound alongside allies like Cursor Miner, Blackmass Plastics, the wee djs, Ardisson and Stormfield, ScanOne is a one-man sonic attack force.
Having already toured the world as part of the renowned Light Surgeons live visual crew, Jude Greenaway is an equally accomplished producer and DJ, drawing upon his main influences of old-skool hardcore, dub, breakage and electro to create his own characteristic sound, blasting this with lung-shaking volumes across London venues like Fabric, Wang, Bass Invader, Ginglik and as far abroad as Finland and Morocco. His background in visual editing lends a unique feel to his tracks, perfectly matching sounds to images, moods and textures that are as clear in your mind as they are projected across massive festival screens.
This show will feature the first ever airplay of ScanOne's 'Dubwise', a sublime yet monstrous fusion of dub, halfstep and dark, apocalyptic electro. Debuted at the recent Combat party, those that missed the gig can now catch it on ammunition... And judging by the interest from underground heads and Radio One's Mary Anne Hobbs, this is a tune you'll be hearing much, much more of
those that missed it first time round, check out Kik It, a heavy dubstep/electro hybrid track from Combat01, that saw heavy play by underground heads like Warlock, Dexorcist, Blackmass Plastics, Radioactive Man, Si Begg, Andrew Weatherall et al.
And Ardisson's 7th Bullet VIP remix, a beast of a half-step electro hybrid:
