Shortstuff/XI @ Dubwar

NYC's Longest running Dubstep night, Dubwar, has put together another terrific pairing of front-running producers for tonight's lineup. Brackles cohort Shortstuff made a big splash on Ramp records back in 2008 and continues to smash out funkier rhythms with the kind of bit-crushed tropical post-garage flair we've come to expect from his Blunted Robots label. He's joined by XI, whose most recent releases on Immerse have brought together some the best elements of dubstep and techno sounds. Full copy after the jump.

All the way from the UK, the Blunted Robots co-conspirator (along with Brackles and Martin Kemp), and all-around hard-jackin badboy DJ Shortstuff makes his Dub War debut. His signature blend of dubstep, grime, funky, breakbeat and progressive trance (joking) have found fans worldwide, and his skills behind the decks have turned heads. Check his XLR8R mix and releases on Ramp, Berkane Sol, Punch Drunk, and his own Blunted Robots label.

He's joined by Toronto's finest, XI, whose production talents are becoming favorites of savvy dubsteppers. Still criminally under-recognized, watch out for him making waves this year.
