In honour of the current new bands issue of NME - and in particular the feature on Magnetic Man and how dubstep is set to take over the world in 2010 - here's the inaugural (and probably last) Daily Download Dubstep Downloads Awards. Each track clicks through to a free download (some hosted by NME, some by third parties - all working at time of writing).

What did we miss? Send us more categories / tips and we'll add them to the post.

NB, there's a fair amount of decent dubstep you just can't find on the blogs, so if you're into any of this go get 12"s from the likes of Horsepower, Digital Mystikz, the 5 Years Of Hyperdub album and go from there...
