British and Jamaican bass have an appointment to rumble. One of the big stars of the bouncy, oft-vocal genre known as UK garage, El-B produced the low-end hits that helped inspire dubstep. Don't be surprised if he offers up some hip-hop or cumbia, too. Joining him on the garage/dubstep/jungle side of things are J Da Flex, Marcus Visionary, Iron Myke and Human?. And in the opposite corner, Jahdan & Liondub, Livity Movements, Silvacat Sound, and Amadeus defend reggae and dancehall.
