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…

Steppin into Tomorrow with SNF 011 01.25.10 on Dubstep.FM


Steppin into Tomorrow with SNFI’m deeply into this show from the 25th, so many new sounds inside it’s almost inappropriate.  New dubs from Swarms, Distal, Hypno, and more, new releases from Pangaea, Baobinga & ID, Mosca, Desto, Mizz Beats, Geiom, Sully, and Heny G among others.  I reviewed the Desto and Mizz Beats releases for the most recent issue of Big Up Magazine, you’re definitely going to want to check that out.  Extremely well done magazine for anyone who’s interested in bass music.

With this episode I’m switching the way you can subscribe to these to make it easier.  This weekly Dubstep.FM show keeps me busy enough that I don’t have time to regularly do the Dubstepped Radio episodes anymore, so I’m going to merge the feed of this with the Radio feed and you can find them both on iTunes at Dubstepped Radio.  Click here to view the new iTunes store podcast page.

This small change will make it easier to subscribe to this show on mobile devices and in iTunes generally.  With this all said, I do still have plans to do features on US/CA producers on Dubstepped Radio episodes which will be proper studio mixes with full art and whatnot, they’ll just appear in the same podcast as the Steppin into Tomorrow episodes.

Bleh, too many words, this is what you really want:

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:

The Dubstep LA Mixtape mixed by Plastician


I’ve been waiting on this one for some time, promotion has been going around between people like Adidas and Virgin Airlines.  Should be major and expose tons of people to the sound of dubstep.  The release of this fusion of hiphop and dubstep is sure to excite and frustrate depending on your musical persuasion, but isn’t that what music is all about?  There’s definitely a strong reaction to this already with over 1,000 followers on the Dubstep LA twitter.  Now I’m wondering if there’s some tour in the workings….  Download the mixtape on GetDarker & spread the word!

Can’t forget the Dub Rap mixtape featuring Bay Area microphone stylings and other people that have been on this combination tip for time.  I love that Chae Hawk & Rx made it onto the final tape with “Malt Liquor” and Plastician’s selections are generally excellent (as expected).  I do wish that he’d gone with his own remix of “Snoop Dogg Millionaire” as that’s far better in my opinion, but I’m too played out on Eastern Jam to comment.

Big respect to all involved in this from the promoters to the MCs to the original producers.  I hope this combination continues and more people fuse these two genres to create a new flavor of dubstep (dare I say hopstep or some other nonsense genre name?)

Comment on what you’re thinking!  I’ll do the same once I give it a proper listen.  I should also add that you can download the Xzibit and Murs tunes for free.
