Editors' pick

Dubstep Cipher


Editorial Review

MCs wishing to spit over some challenging rhythms should prime their minds and hit Expo tonight for the Dubstep Cipher hosted by Rosetta Stoned. Never ones to limit themselves to the standard boom-klack on the the 2 and the 4, Rosetta Stoned and the larger Foodchain Collective crew will drop raps over everything from grime to grunge. For the Dubstep sessions, DJs Soohan and Hubsmoke will spin the most recent British underground club sound that slows down UK garage and keeps the thundering, squelching bass and cut time rhythms of drum 'n' bass. If you've got bars, you're welcome to hit the mike.
