    Swindle and Silkie make sound system smashing grime and dubstep with a stylish, totally soulful touch. After having worked in separate circles for some time (Swindle with heavyweight tracks on Planet Mu and Rwina, Silkie with two stunning albums on Deep Medi) they came together on 'Unlimited', a collaboration forthcoming on Butterz. The track is a perfect example of the bass heavy but irresistibly funk inflected sound that the pair have been championing. It's a 140bpm banger that splices grime attitude, dubstep weight and an ear for melody that sets dance floors on fire. The duo also stepped into the booth together for the first time recently, making light work of dropping groove laden grime and dubstep jams. After hearing them go tune for tune, Mixmag had to get Swindle and Silkie at the controls for a Mix Of The Week. This is their first mixtape together and they come armed with cuts from Silkie's massive 2011 album 'City Limits Vol. 2', Swindle's forthcoming tracks with Stinkahbell and Footsie as well as the aforementioned collaboration. If you're sick of wobble and bored of flaccid mid range synths, then this is the perfect antidote. 100% Swindle and Silkie productions throughout, this is the crucial sound of underground bass music.
