Fabric release first volume of dubstep-not-dubstep comp

ELevator Music Vol. I, a CD of "the mutant strain of 140 BPM bass music", will be released by Fabric on the 16 January. Basically, it's stuff that started out in dubstep but, well mutated. As poster boy Untold told Pitchfork “The interesting stuff is coming from producers exploiting the grey areas building tunes that are dubstep by accident." It's an unfortunate choice of words – the "grey-ness" of dubstep-cum-techno is pretty much the worst thing about it – but he has a point. While news that the most interesting bass music is taking place between techno, grime, garage, house and dubstep rather than inside a particular scene, from the look of things, this comp will be a very worthwhile documentation of the scene.

And their launch night looks bloody brilliant, and the CD will get you in for free. So, y'know, buy it.
