Cutting It: A Dubplate Special | Resident Advisor

Dubplate culture is still thriving—if you know where to look. In Cutting It, we visit a South London community keeping a dance music tradition alive. We take a fresh look at dubplates, and see how a small number of artists, promoters and DIY vinyl cutters have given them a new lease of life.
