Making music in 2012 is a curious hybrid. At one turn we're all hugely focused on quality, ensuring that everything is as silent, neutral and all round perfect as it can be. And often we'll part with hundreds (or thousands) of pounds for the inner peace that only comes with the knowledge that - yes - our audio interface is now finally recording at a quality that our ears can't actually perceive.

Meanwhile we often find that the exciting and original sounds we jealously covet are the result of flagrant disregard for very same framework quality we've imposed upon ourselves. The solution? The Future Music Guide To Filth on page 24 of course. We'll show you the tricks behind today's down and dirty sounds and how to get lots of (controllable and highly desirable) filth into your squeaky-clean, in-the-box productions.

Elsewhere out In The Studio we meet a triple-threat of pros in the shape of Louis La Roche (don't miss his video with this issue), we pin-down Skrillex on his endless tour and catch-up with Fatboy Slim as he enjoys new chart success and gears up for his massive summer gigs.
