and – Dutty Artz TV is looking for an on-screen ANNOUNCER to help with our NYC street fashion segments. the person should be comfortable on-camera & interested in urban / youth fashion. (look for color everywhere) If this sounds like you or someone you know, myspace us or email datv @ duttyartz.com.
today on the radio, an exclusive mix session by Dexplicit. & tix giveaways for his Friday Trouble & Bass party at Love, plus a bunch of new jams from Flamin Hotz and more. podcast version of this will be upped next week.
Grime/bassline producer Dexplicit is responsible for one of grime’s biggest hits, Lethal B’s Forward (also called Pow). Alongside Dizzee Rascal’s I Luv U, Forward was one of the milestone riddims in grime — soaring up in the charts, getting banned on UK radio demonstrated its overground power and populist force. UK & European radio, unlike its American counterpart, doesn’t censor (you can use all those nasty words), so it is rare when a tune gets banned.
But these days, it is Dexplicit’s groundbreaking 4×4 bassline tunes that have our ears ringing. We’ll catch up with him the following week for an interview.
