Maddslinky, Rustie and Africa Hitech will all appear on the second volume of Adventures In Dubstep & Beyond, an exploration of the nether regions of UK bass music curated by highly respected music journalist Joe Muggs.
The first volume, released via Ministry Of Sound last year, introduced a large audience to the less commercial side of dubstep and other strands of UK bass music, and the second instalment very much continues in that vein.
The 34 track, double CD package contains a mix of unreleased material from scene stalwarts including Zed Bias, El-B, Slaughter Mob, Terror Danjah and Hatcha alongside new talents like Lunice and Mr. Mitch.
Muggs says dubstep has “always been an insanely flexible area of music, that keeps on chucking out tracks that are not just examples of the latest micro-trend, but which will stand the test of time just as, say, great techno tracks from the past do”.
He added: “If there is a certain concept that links the tracks together (on the compilation) it’s that they stand out from what a genre dictates, they each have a character of their own.”
Ministry Of Sound will release Adventures In Dubstep & Beyond Volume 2 on June 6.
