#28 Dubstep Wars - Joe Nice

Dubstep Wars is a series we're incorporating into the show which takes a serious look at the development of Dubstep in the US. How it got there, how it grew, and what happened then. This is the second in the series, but we've got so much more than that on this episode.

Joe Nice is an actual hero of underground music in North America. Justifiably regarded as the first person on that side of the pond to push the Dubstep sound, he's also a political activist of deep knowledge and passion.

Regular listeners will know that I love digging into political matters with music people and we absolutely do that here, including on whether musicians have a duty to be political, the differences between the US and Europe, and the issue of censorship in the media.

We also discuss topics including the cutting of dubplates, AOL Instant Messenger, and the legendary NYC Dubstep institution that was Dub War.

This is our longest conversation to date on the show and one that I absolutely loved having. Joe is an awesome guy and I can guarantee that you will love his stories and energy.

No releases on Hotflush labels this week but we just announced the next collab between myself and Bakongo, which also includes a remix from the totally awesome Hassan Abou Alam.

And don't forget to check the new Anna Kost EP if you haven't already. It's really good.
