Devstep - April 2011

So seeing as how more people are really starting to get into the scene here on Sputnik, I thought it might be a good idea to turn devstep into a more regular thing. What I'll be doing is, at the end of every month (or every second month depending on how heavy the release schedule is) I'll post up a list of all the latest dubstep/garage releases that have just come out. That way people can stop hounding me for recs and you lot can stay on top of all the new releases. So because I have a bit of ground to cover for this first installment I've excluded some releases that were just terrible and simply focused more on what I've heard this year so far. This is in no way definitive and doesn't contain EVERY SINGLE release this year (so don't bother asking me why new Rusko isn't on here). Also a few of these have already appeared on previous lists (get over it)

9Breakage
Fighting Fire


Not quite sure what Breakage was going for on this one, but it kinda works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQcBYboY8G4 The Loadstar remix kills it though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRFqjjwP-CI

So Distance is still around, apparently taking cues from Magnetic Man now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIfwIv4wNCE The b-side 'Malice' is great though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v47b1e2X9u0

Great track: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TxAFM_S-cMk but I prefer the Falty remix personally: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vVWAA4epus
31Nero
Me And You


This one was kinda obvious. It's big, loud and a little ott but what did you expect from a group that just signed to Chase & Status' label: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bE47er6qnqg

33Ott
Mir


For some reason listed as Trip Hop in the database (I have no idea why) Ott makes dub music that happens to have a certain psychedelic nature to it. And being the new decade that it is he's decided to incorporate a little wobble into the mix: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GRa42_X8xoY
34Pearson Sound and Ramadanman
FabricLive.56


Perfect mix. And in case anyone was wondering (which you probably weren't) Pearson and Ramadan are the same guy

40Planet Mu
14 Tracks From Planet Mu


One of the great underground labels released an excellent compilation with this. 14 cuts that have somehow ended up on the cutting room floor, been passed over to appear on other comps, or singles to build anticipation. features Boxcutter, FaltyDL and Ikonika amongst others
