Dubstep luminary 12th Planet finds the perfect balance between club-rocking and buzzsaw-blasting. So, naturally he's been courted by everyone from Diplo (who included him on handy genre roadmap Blow Your Head to Korn (who borrowed him for one of SPIN's 20 favorite metal albums of 2011). New stop, Scion A/V, the pan-genre experiment label who's releasing a new five-track EP, The End is Near Pt. 1, available for free download on January 18. The EP not only features the bruising, Flinch-assisted title track, which you can hear below, but a guest appearance by SPIN coversprite Skrillex! We wish your laptop speakers good luck.
