Mary Anne Hobbs - The Queen of Dubstep

Mary Anne Hobbs played a MASSIVE part in making dubstep more accessible and introducing the sound to a new audience by playing it on her Radio 1 Experimental show in 2006.  She has helped pioneer the sound and her show Dubstep Warz which aired on the 10th January 2006 featured only the biggest producers and went down as a legendary moment in the evolution of dubstep.  This show helped expand dubstep to a global level can be found here and downloaded here.
Unfortunately Mary Anne Hobbs aired her final broadcast for Radio 1 last night after 14 years with the BBC.  She was joined by Burial and Kode 9. It was an emotional send off and you can listen to it here on the iplayer for the next seven days.  She is now venturing to Sheffield University to act as a mentor to students.  Best of luck to her, she will be missed!


It's been a while!

Yo, sorry for the lack of posts recently, I've been a busy bee. SW4, Ministry of Sound, Skydiving (nearly) etc.  SW4 was sick but they need to bulk up the sound systems if I'm to be tempted back next year.  Highlights included Erol Alkan's jam packed tent rave after the sudden downpour, moshpit during Skream & Benga's set, catching Salt N Pepper sing 'Lets Talk About Sex' and of course headlining the main stage - Fat Boy Slim!

Big news on the dubstep front, Barack Obama is following Skream on Twitter!! Ha how mad is that. He likes to stay down with the kids apparently. Skream commented on the situation saying 'I never had Obama down as a bass head!' - LOL.

Anyway moving on, new things from Toddla T and Ms Dynamite called 'Want U Now' which is forthcoming on Ninja Tune XX, which can be heard here.  Everything Ms Dynamite has touched recently has turned to gold so expect this to be wrecking dancefloors near you soon!

Speaking of Skream, Toddla and Ms Dynamite, seen this line up for the Warehouse Project in Manchester on Dec 15th? It will be massive! Info
