Dubstep Treats

For many, Dubstep is still quite a new genre but in Bristol peeps have been stomping to it for more than a hot minute. Admittedly I didn't get into it until early this year - I've known about it for a long time but it's only been until more recently that I've had to stand up and actually listen to what's happening as it's on the verge of exploding.

While I think Dubstep isn't for EVERYBODY, you can either find something that will break your skull or on the flipside make u wanna meditate and bop your head. I guess it depends on my mood, but I can handle both now. I would recommend the new listeners to start off with Joker and Guido's mixes but if you're already into Drum and Bass you can pretty much dive in with the hard stuff, so take your pick folks:

JOKER Purple MIX 29TH DECEMBER 2009 (these are all of Joker's own tunes):

Central Spillz FREE DOWNLOAD

As promised, here are the FREE DOWNLOADS for Central Spillz tracks 'How We Roll' & 'Fear and Loathing'


"Central Spillz are five vocalists (3 MC's - C-Strike-Z, Koast and Mackie Skillz, 2 Singer/MC's - Shadz & Redskin) and 2 DJ/Producers (Interface and Superisk) brought up on Hip Hop, Reggae, Soul, UK Garage and Jungle, located in the musical bass camp of the South West, Bristol. If you fling in Grime, Dubstep, and DnB influences into the Hip Hop mixer, you start to get an idea of the Spillz sound. Hip Hop for ravers, you could say. Lyrics with deep substance and beats that emanate all out rave energy, straight from the cutting edge of current dance music culture.

"Culture Clash on the Front Line" Documentary video. Jamaicans in St Pauls, Bristol

Can you believe next year is the 30th Anniversary of the St. Paul's riots? For most of us it happened just before our time, but we hear about it in stories told by our elders.

Peep the documentary below. It lays down the story from historical facts and community experiences that reflect the complexities of race in Bristol, directly traced to inequalities passed on from an earlier generation that suffered under the brutal legacy of slavery and colonialism. Today, more than ever, it is essential to preserve and divulgate this heritage, so the peoples of Bristol, blacks and whites, can better comprehend their social surrounding, can kill frustrations and demagogies and in many cases can get inspired for change.
