Mary Anne Hobbs: Dubstep Warz (BBC Radio1)

January 9th/10th 2016 is the 10th anniversary of the notorious Dubstep Warz transmission on my BBC Radio1 Breezeblock show. This show marked the global tipping point for the dubstep sound. Mala, Skream, Kode 9 & The Spaceape, Vex'd, Hatcha & Crazy D, Loefah & Sgt Pokes and Distance changed the world of global dance music forever. 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 & historical impact of this one in a lifetime.. it's a miracle..
