Review: We know little to nothing about Arthur D'Amour but the dude has certainly sparked our attention over the last few years. This time he makes his comeback on Jutonish and for those of you who don't know, it's one of Russia's longest standing dance labels; the Whisky-Cola mix takes a thumping house beat and mashes up with some seriously twisted party vocals for a proper peak-time belter. On the B-side, the Cognac mix is a jittery, Ibiza-inspired electro anthem - bound to get your booty shaking...

Review: Having headed up the My Style mix and compilation before, Dub Police label boss hands the reigns over to D1, who provides us with a run down of what's hot in dubstep in 2011. Picking out some runaway classics of the year - cuts such as Redlight's enormous "Source 16" with its thunderous, elastic band bassline and booty shaking appeal, Caspa's ode to the underground "Fulham 2 Waterloo" and the bleepy, synth soaring "Turn Me On" from Subscape, which draws the album to a close - alongside some of his own material, it's an on point selection. Listen to the continuous DJ mix for an all round experience.

Review: With the lead track on this EP, "Turn Around", sporting crooning tones from Luke Lowen, it seems like D3adl1ne has a clear sight on breaking through to mass appeal. In the delicate UK Funky framework and drive-time vocals of the track there is a lot of potential for crossover, but the EP doesn't stop there. "Eee" for example plies a definite trade in dub techno dynamics amidst shuffling 2-step beats, while "Everybody" comes from the Joy Orbison school of melancholia in contemporary electronic music. Light, melodic and instantly accessible; D3adl1ne should win over many a fan with his crisp, clean beats.

Review: Combining broken garage beats, powerful basslines and some heavy textures, UK producer D3adl1ne's "Wait For You" boasts three dubby killers - the deeply-atmospheric title tune, the meditative half-stepper "Still Believing" and the more house-shaped chilled tech of "Baby Got Beef".

Review: The original version of "Turn Around" - a rare outing for the oddly-titled D3adl1ne and vocalist Luke Owen - is impressively soulful, a bleep-and-click heavy chunk of dewy-eyed UK funky that benefits greatly from Lowen's casual but emotion-laden vocal delivery. There's a quartet of remixes to explore, with DJ SKT leading the way with a aprase two-step version that makes great use of the original's 8-bit bleeps. Tremorfire Dubz inject some energy via a heavyweight 4/4 groove and tropical riffery, while Solution go all Todd Edwards on their Dub remix. The final version, from Shea D Stedford, mixes skittish jungle rhythms with extended breakdowns.

Review: In just over a year, Unknown to the Unknown have gone from humble beginnings to releasing material from Detroit legend DJ Stingray, Chicago heat from Marcus Mixx and Alias G, the rudest bassline garage from DJ Q and tracks from up and comers Slackk, Nightwave and Mista Men. But the genesis of the label can be traced back to a YouTube channel known as "DaAutopsy", where Hot City's DJ Haus still posts forthcoming UTTU hype and old vinyl rips to this day. Now the channel has taken on a life of its own, and spewed forth "Tear Tha Fuckin' Club Up!". Undoubtedly the hardest hitting UTTU joint to date, incandescent rave stabs go toe to toe with Baltimore club styles, creating a beast of a club track that resembles a Frankenstein's monster of the YouTube generation. Big tip!
