Moving Units: Radio-Active Records' Top 5 Releases for August 10-16
This is the summer of dubstep.
graciously keeps us up-to-date and comments on the current releases
flying out of his store each week.
As one of the world's preeminent dubstep DJs, Briton Skream is in similar company with premier bike messengers, mumblecore directors, and rogue restaurant owners -- titans within a small, committed community and relative unknowns to the greater population. With Outside the Box, 24-year-old Oliver Jones probably has a legion of elite car companies envisioning placing his polished synthesizer and beat sculptures of "The Epic Last Song" with its latest luxury model. More than likely, it'll be his collaborations with La Roux and Murs that spread the net wider than this niche.
