Mary Anne Hobbs to quit radio

Some sad news on these shores: Mary Anne Hobbs has hosted her last edition of the BBC Radio 1 Experimental Show (formerly the Breezeblock Show) after 14 years. It seems the show will continue without her but it's a collossal understatement to say she'll be sorely missed, not just by the music world, but also by the artists she supported.

She has left the show and radio altogether to become the Media Development Coordinator at Sheffield University. It's no secret the part Hobbs played in the breaking of countless artists: pretty much every dubstep artist you've ever heard of; perhaps most notably Kode9 and Burial, the creators of the mix posted below.

Here's the last edition of the Experimental Show cooked up by the lovely Kode9 and Burial.

Todo El Mundo @ Hyem Bar - 25/09/10

Renowned record hound, LP compiler, international DJ and co-founder of Finders Keepers Records, Doug splits his time between his label duties, involvement in the seminal globetrotting club night/collective B-music and manning his fitful pocket empire Battered Ornaments.

Catch him upstairs at Hyem bar playing exclusive tracks from his forthcoming debut mixtape 'Dedicated Swallower Of Fashion' - a cacophony of syncopated psychedelic ...madness that draws from his enviably expansive record collection and challenging DJ sets, dusting off handpicked fuzz-ridden-break-heavy platters from as far and wide as Malaysia, France, India, Germany, USA, Russia, Spain, Columbia, Italy and Indonesia.

Joining him on the turntables will be Todo el mundo residents Antonio Morales and Major Dawson.

Friday 25th September
19.30 - Late
Free Entry

New EP from Udachi and iBeat

New York ravager of parties Udachi has a new EP out on Palms Out Sounds featuring the knob-twiddling wizardry of his old Staten Island pal iBeat. The EP is called 'Swagger' and came out yesterday with remixes from Baobinga, AC Slater, Tactic, Deathface (of Guns N' Bombs fame) & Andreas Bygdell.

Throwing elements of tropical, new york heavy bass, kuduro and good old fashioned rave into the mixing pot, with a storming 808-filled bounce from Baobinga. But as ever when he's on the remix rosta, it's AC Slater's heavy bass remix which is sure to become a classic in the clubs.
