digital dust x metropolis sound - dubstep special
Digital Dust and Metropolis Sound are combining their shows to dig deep into some of their favourite dubstep sounds. From the early records that literally were combing jamaican dub elements with 2 step garage rhythms; to the legendary subbass behemoths of early DMZs; to the techy, sparse sounds of Tectonic and the Hessle Audio camp. We are joined by Raksha (Deadly Rhythm, High Sheen) before his set at Mala In Cuba @ Stereo and Fergus Clark from Subcity's 12th Isle Transmissions.
8 - 11pm - AHOIIIIIII

reminissin': 2008/2009 - part 1
As the noughties decade entered into its last years the UK underground electronic scene seemed to go into overdrive. Styles that had been etched into the decade years before like Dubstep and Grime cross pollinated with the more hedonistic and upbeat rhythms of UK Funky and House. Producing some of the weirdest and hardest hitting dance floor bangers of the decade.
Meanwhile a small selection of producers in Bristol were using a grime mentally, crossed with a swaggering 90s G-funk flava to come out with the sound known as Purple.
Along with this, the lush sounds of deep house and the vocal flutterings of garage were creeping into tracks ever more, spearheaded by the likes of Martyn and Joy Orbison.
Furthermore you had madmen like 2562, Pangaea and Untold making entries into a very dark end of the spectrum where techno, 2step, 8bar grime and dubstep all met with unbelievable sonic results.
So for the next 2 hours we are going to celebrate and reminisce on the tracks that made 2008 and 2009 so very special. [PART 1]
Posted at 21:45, 10th January 2013
Playing some of the tunes that we rated that got released this year, tunes from Spaceghostpurrp, Andy Stott, DJ Q and many more

Posted at 18:05, 26th June 2012
As the UK Garage scene splintered into harder, darker and more aggressive styles in the early 2000s; many subgenres appeared. Names such as 8 bar, sublow and grime were thrown about. Then in 2002 Wiley released his seminal track 'Eskimo' and cemented a new strain of UKG. Coining the genre 'Eski', Wiley made some of the most influencial tracks of this time period using strange click, drips and clanks; and a focus on gliding square bass.
So for the first hour Dusty is going to look through some of Wiley's classic eski tracks along with producers who have adopted elements of the style and used them in their productions today. Featuring tunes from Jam City, Logos, Becoming Real and more.

Tonight we're joined by our good friend Raksha from Estonia!, He reps the Glasgow division of Deadly Rhythm (one of our favourite club nights) which has brought Alex Nut, Martyn, Braiden, Samiyam, Krystal Klear and many more to Chambre69 over the past year. A top selector and producer himself, keep your eye on Raksha as we expect big things from him very soon. Check his beats here http://soundcloud.com/rakshadubs
Also joining us is our friend Ray from the east side! You may know him from such things as the skinny club listings, the skinny student guide and now a recent recruit of The Scotsman! We've found Ray to be a fine selector of the house and techno variety and tends to keep his vinyl very clean. Deckard and him go B2B 100% Vinyl
Hanlo will be playing a couple of exclusive tracks off the forthcoming FREE Duncan Powell album - 'Franked'. After the death of Amy Winehouse Duncan rediscovered his love for her album 'Frank' and decided to remix the whole thing. Inbetween that all strains of UKG.

At Digital Dust we love our garage and we love our party beats so we thought who better to ask to kick off our series of guest mixes than CRST? A collective of producers from Cardiff who make straight UKG bangers. With releases on Herve's Cheap Thrills, Ten Thousand Yen, Well Rounded and countless remixes including a brilliant rework of the Shelter by the XX, its clear these boys are in demand!
