First off, this 8 bit piece from Bazooka that is timed perfectly with the video by Patrick Jean.
Here, we have a friend from my hood and I’m stoked to help Phraktol get his work out to you. [U.S.]
He is a Santa Cruz, California based artist who has just finished up his newest EP titled “Smile” to be released on his “Not Strictly Dubstep” Label, penned in for December 1st of this year.
This release is packed with 5 high energy floor fillers that are going to satisfy those bassy needs we all suffer from.
For an idea of what this bad boy is about, download his free EP at http://phraktol.com/music.htm and check out his soundcloud account.
Phraktol is multi talented in that he’s working on some great dubstep and he also creates amazing digital art. He’s done work that featured Excision, Downlink, and I’m proud to say, my labels design. Don’t hesitate to contact him about any art inquiries. His facebook account is Cody Phraktol Stearns

Next, we have Aftee from Columbus, Ohio. [U.S.]
This young man has some amazing talents and when I say young, I mean you can forget about hanging out with him at the bars.
I contacted him recently to see about his latest works considering I haven’t heard anything from him in 2 years.
Somehow I missed his progress up until this point and I’m truly blown away. This guy is on a rampage as far as his work flow is concerned and I’m happy to say here that he is now part of the Crossroads family.
To celebrate his joining us we’re going to give away 100 free dl’s of his tune “Click Clack” from his forthcoming EP titled “Let ‘Em Know” out December 1st.
This is just the beginning for Aftee at Crossroads and he’ll definitely be included in future compilations. Look out for forthcoming solo projects as well.
Alright, here we have a brutal remix from Dash Total’D. [U.K.]
Pendulum’s The Island has been slowed to 140 and this shit is dark. The intro seems really broken up and it almost sounds unfinished to me but the drop is gonna make you grateful I posted this if you like it rough. Prepare those speakers and your ears. They’re in for a beating.
A new collective of artists has joined forces and have labeled themselves the Dubthugs. [U.S./U.K.]
Trap Jaw, Switch, D-Queue, TPX, Celt Islam, Satmeka, and Seeda are the early members and with that roster we’re in for some future treats.
Let’s take note now, and for the time being enjoy this freebie from their LFO Alchemy EP.
Spliff time while you download these hip hop influenced dubs from the homies Direct Feed & Disturbentz.
These 2 hold it down in Southern California and are known to bring the heat!
The dubs I’ve included here were topped off in early 2009 if I’m not mistaken, but they hold strong, so here ya go. [U.S.]
To round off my first post, I’ve included an exclusive mix from DJ Sashwat. [U.S.]
Sashwat is a relatively new face in the Dubstep community.
Reppin’ the East coast and now residing in Maryland, this up and coming DJ is gaining a great rep for having a good time behind the decks and he’s already opened up for some big names and is on everyone’s promo list at this point. EVERYONE’S except yours, so go and find him!
The mix he shared here is a blend of 50 tunes for your listening pleasure.
To quote Sash: “Wasn’t completely flawless (but certainly no trainwrecks or major flaws) more or less a nice deep mix”
And that’s all I needed to include it here.

Big Up DJ UMB for the opportunity to write for Generation Bass. I’ve been following the site for a while and I have always really been impressed with the artists that are shared here. This is the first of many! Stay tuned!
