Mary Anne Hobbs Uploads Seminal 2006 Show "Dubstep Warz"
Just over five years have passed since January 9, 2006 when Mary Anne Hobbs showcased an epic run of dubstep pioneers. Featuring names like D1, Digital Mystikz, Skream, Kode 9 & The Spaceape, and Vex'd, the show left many of their tracks marked as "Untitled"—dubplates through and through. Uploaded yesterday to Hobbs' Mixcloud in honor of the show's fifth anniversary, the 48-song tracklist can now be streamed in its entirety below. MAH made a reflective statement about the show saying, "Dubstep Warz still sounds as vital, as primal, and as thrilling as the night we threw it down. It brings tears to my eyes. If, as a broadcaster, you can deliver one show with the cultural and historical impact of this one in a lifetime, it's a miracle." Nuff said.
