Various Artists Mary Anne Hobbs Presents: Warrior Dubz
- Words: Matt Earp
- Label: Planet Mu
This is the definitive statement of where bass music stands at the end of 2006. BBC ultra-maven Mary Anne Hobbs has culled the year's best unreleased cuts from her radio show and collected them for this stunning compilation. The focus is heavy on dubstep (DMZ, Benga, Burial, and Kode9), but long unavailable grime gems (Plastician's "Cha" and a great Terror Danjah track), outsider dancehall (The Bug with Flowdan), post-jungle jungle (Amit and newcomer Spor), and even dubby techno (Andy Stott) are represented. A real winner from bass music's most consistent label and one of its most influential selectors.
