Dubstep Essential Mix by Guardian Part II
Continuing our Dubstep Essential Series which has been exclusively for the blog we have part 2 from Guardian coming in at just over 54 minutes and about 37 tracks which keeps the flow of the mix really fresh.
I love the tempo of Dubstep even if I play it for a friend that doesn’t like electronic at all they always react in a positive/surprised way towards the tracks as something completely new, I mean who doesn’t like good heavy low end and dark spacey sounds that you’ve never heard before every once in a while.
Tomorrow a few friends and I are going for the first time to see BBC Radio 1’s Mary Ann Hobbs DJ some Dubstep at Dub Wars which should be killer. A little about Guardian, he is one of the best Dubstep producers I know, he’s from Detroit but lives now in Brooklyn, he is one of the best Dubstep DJ’s i’ve heard out too because of his range and he peaks out into rowdy tracks at perfect times but doesn’t rely on it and its more about track selection for him, hope to see him play around the US/UK this year.

Guardian always brings the hot fire. rugged and raw with class and sophistication. the perfect balance for the perfect mix.
p.s. the build up to the last track is mind blowing.

Jakub hit the nail on the head when he calls out Guardian’s mastery over pacing in his sets, gives you the hype shit and then the chill shit at all the right times.

Saw Mary Anne in Chicago last week – it was pretty raw, and the thing that’s dope about her dj sets nowadays is that she’s showing love to LA just as much as the UK so it’s a good mix of dubstep AND brainfeeder/la/wonk/etc.
