The latest instalment in Rinse's compilation series focuses on the more hip-hop influenced side of dubstep.
Alexander Nut is set to mix the latest instalment in Rinse's compilation series, due for release later this month.
The relatively unknown DJ can be found hosting Rinse FM's Saturday afternoon show, where he focuses more on the hip-hop influenced side of the dubstep genre. Whereas some journalists have attempted to coin this sound as "wonky" due to the heavily swung beats, Nut is of a firm belief that all of the music that he plays is firmly rooted in hip-hop and soul. Nut carries the mandate of his radio show over to the Rinse: 08 compilation, mixing up cuts from Zomby, Joker, Hudson Mohawke and Flying Lotus over the mix's 22-track duration. It's the first time that this particular micro-genre has been immortalised to a commercial mix CD, so those wanting to dip their toes in to the "wonky" sound could do a lot worse than checking out Nut's contribution to the series.
