Weekly Wrap Up #1

Januar 19, 2006Dubstep,Grime

After contemplating for quite a while what I should do to keep the blog up to date and organized, I’ve decided to wrap up all grime/dubstep tings in a handy (virtual) box each week from now on. Expect reviews, event announcements, links to mixes, blog trackbacks and so on… Which of course doesn’t mean that I’ll stop writing individual post about these topics.

Biggest news this week is that Plasticman has finally given in to the pressure of Richie Hawtin’s lawyers and decided to chance his name to… The Plastician. Read more about this and his move to BBC Radio 1 here or read this rather old (2003), but still interesting interview that touches on the name issue as well.


DJ /rupture unveils the origin of Slew Dem’s „Joyride“ beat and comes up with a very remarkable vocal version of Lady Saw on the original riddim. Check out another version of the riddim here!


The first radio show of the week award goes to last weeks „Dubstep Wars“ special on Radio 1’s „Breezblock“. Mary Anne Hobbs had gathered some of dubstep’s most important figures in her studio who provided exclusive dj mixes (loaded with nuff dubs, trust me) and gave background information on the scene. A thread about the show can be found here, some nice photos there, and since the „listen again“ feature on the BBC has expired on Monday, I’ve posted a MP3-recording of the show here. (Just to let you know, mates: it’s a rip of the webstream (at 128 kbps) and not recorded from DAB!)
