Check out this mix from the best new producer out there- Blawan. He is taking the whole dubstep/2 step/techno thing and turning it on its head, making really hard rhythmic- almost industrial- style tracks. If you listen to his tracks by themselves, unmixed, their abrasiveness almost pushes them in to experimental territory. He has only a few releases so far but each one is amazing, I recommend them all. This mix was broadcast on Mary Ann Hobbs’ XFM show in London July 23 2011. It’s mostly unreleased stuff by him with some old techno and what not. Tracklist here. It's only 22 minutes but full of the most inventive dance music I have heard in a long while. Mental stuff, play loud.
