some links of interest:

Dubstep In The Guardian

Guardian Unlimited: Arts blog - music: Keep this frequency here: in defence of dubstep

Keep this frequency here: in defence of dubstep

Jamie Collinson described dubstep on this blog as sanitised grime. But there's nothing watered down about bass that makes you think your ribs are going to cave in.

Top 47 British Acts of 2006 selected by some Brit music bloggers

Top 47 British Acts of 2006 | Nothing But Green Lights: A UK mp3 blog. -

Last year, we had the Hottest 47 British acts of 2005 which was voted by for prominent British music bloggers. Girls Aloud won. This year, it’s the top 47 artists again, with a similar panel deliberating over the results…

some highlights [from a poor list:]

40. Fujiya and Miyagi
25. Erol Alkan
21. Four Tet / Kieran Hebdon
9. The Long Blondes
9. Hot Chip
5. Jarvis Cocker

i disagree with most of the selections, so put forward 20 of my own suggestions:

Amit - techstep jungle gets remoulded and updated
Anaal Nathrakh - brutal precision metal
Bat for Lashes - the female brit vocal artist of the year
Burial - created a landmark dubstep album
Nathan Fake - ulrich schnauss electro inspired sonics
Boxcutter - bouncy uplifting hybrid electronic sounds
Clark - high profile warp electronic music
Neil Cowley Trio - the best british jazz music of 2006
Cursor Miner - electro synth driven sonics
Fortdax - stunning sampled electronic music
Greg Haines - avant electronic composition
iliketrains - dramatic vocals and emotional guitar music
Jesu - probably the best contemporary british rock band in terms of dynamics
Scritti Politti - a melodic comeback
Alex Smoke - moody atmospheric electro-house
Andy Stott - techno techno techno
Ryan Teague - modern composition
Tunng - melodic modern folk music
Various Production - brilliant hybrid electronic music
The Workhouse - atmospheric epic rock

THE LIST - updated - All Time Albums

From a closed loop community on rateyourmusic.com: THE LIST [updated 12.10.06] - Rate Your Music

"the 400 greatest albums, as rated by those on my favorite users list. updated monthly to reflect evolving tastes as we journey together.

the point of the list is to grasp the intangible - that is, the best musical releases, including LPs, EPs and live albums, according to those whose opinions i respect, and to thereby provide a serious reference for those who are fortunate enough to have a similar musical worldview. the point of THE LIST is not to state what is and what is not a great album. THE LIST is for reference and comparison and discussion.

I hate best-of lists, but dang it, I can't seem to avoid them. This year, after compiling my list, I noticed some themes developing. So this list is the first part of a five part series, covering the best of 2006. This first list is dedicated to heady, mind-bendingly beautiful music that deserves attention, and if you were to put these records on in the same disc changer, you could bliss your mind harder than you could on any drug.

  Nick Luscombe's Xfm Flo-Motion Show - Ending

Shocking news, DJ Nick Luscombe just mentioned that in 2 shows time his weekly Flo-Motion electronic music show on London's Xfm will be ending.

No explanation or further information given. These leads to the following questions:

Is he moving to another radio station, maybe he has been poached by the BBC? or
Have the corporate suits at Xfm axed the show?
What will replace the show?
