Shouts to Mostly Junk Food for getting this into my Facebook feed. I’m not sure when ravers became ragers, but fuck it…this is funny. These kids now say the exact same shit my cohort said in the 90s. I feel so old.
Pretty sure this is the first vid off of 12thy’s Scion A/V EP of the same name. Dope.
West Coast Dubstep king 12th Planet just dropped a 5 track freEP via Scion A/V today. With features from Skrillex, Kill the Noise, Flinch, SPL, and Antiserum, “The End is Near” often feels like a beautiful collaboration of noise, but the last track, a solo, “Jail Break” has a refreshingly deep vibe.
We mostly eat meat, have bbqs, drink beer….stuff like that.
Had no clue this was coming until I was roaming Media Contender’s site. Shouts to 12thy for being the King of West Coast Dubstep! It’s been a massive couple years for you. You deserve every bit of it!
i got wind this was going to happen on Tuesday while kicking it w/ 12thy in Bloomington, and it took every bit of moral fiber not to go blabbing about it on Twitter. Heard a demo of their collab on the bus and it features ….. Dizzee Rascal too! Straight retarded. Can’t wait for it to drop.
Vapors Magazine linked up w/ 12th Planet for a rather informative interview about him and dubstep.
Second part below the cut.
I was gonna wait to post this, but I just can’t wait … I am so fucking hyped on this mixtape, I can’t even begin to explain. From my first introduction to dubstep 4 years ago, I knew that bass heavy sounds of dubstep could spark tremendous innovation in not just hiphop but most dance music, and so far I have been right. Dubstep LA is the pinnacle of heavy bass for me. With West Coast greats like Murs, Ras Kass, and U-N-I contributing to the project, you knew it had to be dope! Big ups to everyone invovled in this release. You have completed a tremendous accomplishment!
Full track list after the jump.

To further prove my assertion that dubstep is the new gangsta rap, Ras Kass teams up with Stateside dubstep guru 12th Planet for an incredible track that you have to hear to believe. Tracks like this give me hope for both dubstep and hip-hop. Dubstep is often way to boring as just an instrumental for me, and hip-hop has become unbelievably stagnant in the past few years. This track is neither boring nor stale. This tune is straight up heat.
Sorry for not posting this last week.

John Dadzie, in his 12th Planet suit, rocked Banana Split not to long ago w/ a huge dose of heavy bass. John has proven to be one of the most well rounded producers I have encountered in the past few years. Nearly every style this guy touches turns out like gold. From his hip-hop/pop work to drum-n-bass to electro to dubstep. Dada does it all! Give this mix a listen. It’s a straight up banger!

Reid Speed dropped this headphone killer earlier today as a portrait of her experience on the road as a dj. Looking over the tracklist, the mix seems to be an interesting blend of electro house, bassline, and dubstep. For those of you that love LA’s take on club music, definitely make sure to download this mix. Great beats for when you are on a mission.
