Playing tracks by
Benga, Joker, Doctor P, The rolling stones, Egyptrixx and more.
so this mix is sort of an olive branch... if you're going to talk about dubstep you inevitably fall on one of two sides:
1) yr an american and if it were possible to slather dubstep's filth-juice all over you, you would
2) yr not an american and are appalled/embarrassed at brostep and the fact that it's most people's first and only foray into the genre
i can't really call myself a brostep fan, but it's what a lot of people want to listen to over here, so the majority of this mix was conceived for a live show at manna dew in millerton NY a couple of weeks ago, that actually featured live drumming complimenting the music, to good effect. the selections are my attempt to give the people what they want while trying to find a middle ground between melodic and grating.
the lesson learned sifting through hundreds of tracks, most of which i will NEVER listen to again: for every 20 really shitty circus records there there is one that isn't that bad at all
