Corridors of sound
A bunch of great dubstep and dubstep-related mixes and podcasts I've come across of late and thought I would share. If you know of any other good mixes etc then leave them in the comments or get in touch. Cheers.
The blogariddims series in general is well worth a listen and you can subscribe through iTunes or google reader or whatever. This recent mash-up by Zhao (he of different waters among others) is cracking, and mixes Skream, Appleblim and the like with Indonesian Gamelan and ragga inflected stuff.
Loads of great mixes and posts at grievousangel. There's a collected page of mixes here - dubstep sufferah vol3, is a belter. There's also a great 2007 scene-scoping interview about this volume at Blackdownsoundboy.
A bunch of podcasts: Hospital Records; Electronic Explorations; and Xlr8r (the recent dusk + blackdown mix is great) - the first two cover various sounds but tend to focus on grime, dubstep and drum n bass; the latter is a little more scattershot.
Keeping up with all this stuff...: Dubstep Forum (there's enough here to make your ears bleed black); Blackdownsoundboy; gutterbreakz; Pitchfork's Grime and Dusbtep Column (check out their link to this YDOT mix); Rinse FM.
And finally a bunch of Kode9 sounds: this Maida Vale session (partly with Spaceape) was broadcast on the 24th July; there's his mix of the recent London Zoo album by The Bug; and this radio show he did with DJ Rupture - and the rest of Rupture's WFMU shows.
Edit: Just after I put this together, Mary Anne Hobbs reprised her seminal 2006 Breezeblock Dubstep Warz session (there's an MP3 of the show here) in which 7 DJs (Mala, Skream, Kode9, Vex'd, Hatcha, Loefa, Distance) took over her Radio 1 show and notionally 'broke' Dubstep. This time those 7 DJs chose 7 more to reflect the state of the scene: Silkie & Quest, Kulture, Joker & MC Nomad, Starkey, Chef, Oneman and Cyrus. You can hear the results on listen again for the next few days (this option boosts the listening figures) or there are various MP3s of the show doing the rounds.
