Steppin into Yesterday with SNF 037 07.26.10 on Dubstep.FM


I was feeling a bit nostalgic last week after Mary Anne Hobbs announced that she’s stepping down from her Radio 1 show which is, and has been for a while, pretty much the apex of underground dance music education.  This got me in the mood for some classics so I decided to take a break from the bleeding edge of dance music and look backwards towards 2006/2007.  Some of my all time favorite tracks are in this mix, and strong representation from some of the best labels out there: Hyperdub, Tempa, Tectonic, DMZ, and Hotflush.  Step into the time machine…

Review: Biome – The Fear EP on Sub Pressure (SBPR002)


Biome comes with a dark and bass-heavy EP out this Monday on Sub Pressure entitled The Fear. Three tracks of black-as-night darkness await listeners on this one.  These two I’m really into.

The first track “Fear of the Future” is the type of music I’d want to be listening to if I were crusing around in outer space watching a battle between two alien races.  One has a giant ship with lasers and whatnot, and the other flies around in oversized robotic spacesuits.  The battle is epic.  This is the soundtrack.

The other highligted tune is “Industrial” which has an apt name, bringing up images of a haunted factory with errant machines running around malfunctioning, or maybe a b-boy battle that occurs in the underworld of Metropolis.  Definitely a Kromestar feel on this one with original elements also, big tune.

Shortstack in the area


It’s been 10 months since I started Dubstepped it’s been a hell of a lot of fun.  Now for some growth.  I’m ridiculously happy to welcome the addition of a new writer, DJ Shortstack (Heat Promotions) out of Atlanta.  Shortstack brings a second perspective on dubstep and trust me when I say that he’s got some big posts coming up here.  Catch him playing out in the Atlanta area and other spots.

Shortstack recently recorded a set he played at Tuff Tuesdays in Atlanta, this is probably the best introduction I could give:

Tuff Mix by Shortstack

6Blocc – Tru Love
Pinch – Punisher (Loefah’s SE25 Remix)
TRG – Hoods Up
Skream – What Did He Say?
Luthor – Cabin Pressure
Skream – Shake It
Distance – Clockwork
Kromestar – Off Da Hook

Steppin into Tomorrow with SNF – First Episode!


I did my first show Monday on Dubstep.FM and it went off!  I had so much fun, massive respect to all listeners both in the chatroom and silent.  Posting this here with a tracklist like I’ll do for all these shows, and I’ve set up a podcast-style feed on the site just for these Dubstep.FM broadcasts.  To subscribe in iTunes go to Advanced, Subscribe to Podcast… and enter this URL:

/index.php/category/steppin/feed/

This will of course work in other readers besides iTunes also.  I should also say that I’ve got loads of new material for dubstepped, so expect a flurry of posts soon come!!!

I should also say that the mic I have at the moment is complete crap so please excuse any inappropriate mic noises  :)   I’ve got a new one on the way currently so this should be solved in the future.

Redline Volume 2 Mixed by Blackheart


Blackheart Redline MixThis big mix from Blackheart out of Oakland, CA done for the Redline mix series is a must listen. Blackheart is a trio of Swatchdog, DOS, Preep and definitely light up the dance when I’ve seen them.  They just played at the Makeout sessions last night which you can check out on the dubstep.fm archives.  Give this one a listen and big them up on their myspace or on groundscore.  See them live next at Machine Gun Funk down in San Jose or surely soon again in the city.
