Podcast 72: Mary Anne Hobbs Live in S.F., January 29

When Mary Anne Hobbs agrees to make a DJ mix, one thing can be counted on—that said mix will be packed end-to-end with bangers in which the beats are dirty, the basslines earth-shattering, and the MCs spit lyrics faster than you can say "big ups!"

Such is the case on this live mix, which was recorded at last Thursday's West Coast Rocks event in San Francisco and coincidentally marks the first-ever podcast the Britain-based DJ, journalist, and Radio1 host has made.

Any fan of the dubstep, grime, and drum and bass genres will recognize old friends on the tracklisting, from Hyperdub founder Kode9 to garage and broken-beat producer Zed Bias. For those new to the concept of all things bass-heavy, the mix is an excellent primer, and finally, for the truly fanatic, producers are welcome to drop tunes in Ms. Hobbs' Soundcloud box on her MySpace page. May this mix inspire you to do so.

Tune into her Radio1 show at 2 a.m. GMT on Wednesdays.

F-in A! She was awesome at the Airliner, too bad the Suck Mob had to ruin the vibe.
