Yup. I'm late chiming in here but this mix is big for sure. Looking forward to grabbing the new Kode 9/Sapce Ape and yours as well. I'd love to get my paws on that Skream track too.

yeah Sweetz is a gem but Skream said i seemed to be the only one who likes it, so currently there's no release plans (like much of his prolific output). hopefully this mix will increase interest.

no doubt that this mix is whipping things up. job done martin if that's partly the reason you're doing these mixes. with this kind of quality emerging, the dubstep scene is going from strength to strength. i would imagine that most of these artists have a prolific output so do you think we're going to see dubstep artist albums or will the scene stick to only releasing the cream of their productions on 12? i know a lot of people who have no real knowledge of dubstep, who are hearing the stuff like the vex'd album and the our sound record and loving it. boomkat for one is exposing the sound to general fans of dance music. i think the audience is growing and perhaps albums are the way forward? any thoughts...?

from speaking to labels selling 12"s and selling CDs are very different things. they often go through different selling channels (indie shop v HMV etc) and CDs are far more hassle to sell. the politics with HMV racking (where the label pays HMV to display their product for HMV to sell) is in itself pretty nuts.

so yeah i'd expect albums from the big dubstep players in the next year, but they're way more hassle (without great rewards) than the 12" format.

that said look out for the Dubstep Allstars vol 2 mix CD from Youngsta this summer.

that's insane. i've been loving it since i first heard it on an n-type set. patented, feel-it-in-ya-chest skream cinematics.

Could somebody yousendit this one for me, please?

Ach!

Props for getting 'Dizzee Rascal - Win' on there. Still listen to the clip from TWANBOC! I'm guessing its never getting an official release.

Blackdown
28-07-2005, 07:39 PM
no, i expect 'win' will never to come out. dizzee doesn't like it or think it's finished.
i had to specifically beg to get that one.

what's TWANBOC?

good mix... im guessing from the tracklisting, you think dubstep is far more inventive/interesting than grime at the mo.

Blackdown
29-07-2005, 01:17 AM
i love both, always have. it's just that exclusive grime tracks are harder to access...

Bloody hell!

Haven't listened to this un in a while.

This was/is a quality mix, and to this day is lodged in my brain.

First time I heard:

Skream - Sweetz (what happened to this? gone the same way as a million other skream bits I suppose)
Cyrus - Indian Stomp !
Lethal B - Hitman (this a Plasticman track?)

and probably a bunch of other bits I have forgotten about.

Nice onw martin, will re-download this!

Sweetz is a tune Skream didn't feel as strongly about as I did. Hitman is Lethal's vocal version of Plastitician's Funeral Vibez. The vocal was on Lethal's first LP.

'Sweetz' is one of the great lost ones.

Still one of my favourite mixes Martin ;)

what a mix - it all sounds so fresh, unlike most dubstep now - i had never heard it before
i wish more people gave some thought about sonic environments and had more purpose in their mixes
really great, thanks very much (&grime definately needs to be repped more - it works so well in this context)

Thats a shame, its a good un...

I ignored that Roll Deep thing the first time I heard it. What a hook on that. Actually, I think I like the muffled radio recorded loop better than the clean version.

blackdown ‘keysound pirate radio refix’

i love the way theres pirate radio cuts put in the mix. "murk! thas the way we work cuzzy, you have to be onit!"

wiley before the roll deep's me, "u know what this scene is so big, i swear, this is the scene! yeah".
love it. want that set. "rinse fm sets" needs a bump :P
