Interview – Who is…DJ Shiftee?
Mix – KNKT3D002: Space Mountain, by DJ Shiftee (right click, save target as)

Statement on the mix – This mix is a bit like a rollercoaster for small children, vertically challenged adults, senior citizens, and tall wimps.  There are ups and downs, sharps turns, and surprises, but ultimately it rarely veers too far in a particular direction.  There are no 1000 foot drops on these rides.  JUST LIKE THIS MIX (well, maybe there are a few ;)).

That is not to say the mix is boring or that I don’t do tons of tricks and scratching.  Listen, kiddie rollercoasters are fun (okay, maybe I’m a tall wimp).  They may not terrify the beegesus out of you, but they always posses a nice balance of smooth riding and excitement.  JUST LIKE THIS MIX.

Last point.  Just because a rollercoaster is meant for kids, doesn’t mean it’s always smooth sailing.  Sometimes these rides are uncomfortable, and often they have themes and surroundings that are just plain bizarre.  You might look to your left and see a giant stuffed mouse wearing nothing but a bow tie and talking to a huge naked purple dinosaur.  JUST LIKE THIS MIX.

1. The Bug – Jah War ft. Flowdan (Loefah Remix)

2010 Top 30 // Tunes, Big // Category, Dubstep

Once again, I’m going to have my cake and eat it too.  But wait, does this expression make any sense?  Is there ever a situation in which a person would have cake and not eat it?

And so, here are my 30 favorite dubstep (& related) tracks I heard in 2010.  Note some overlap with my overall 2010 list, but who are you?  The list police?  Get off my back!

October Top 10 // Tunes, Big

Salutations.  I’m writing to you at 11:01am from a Finnish airport.  Why?  Why am I writing to you from an airport in Finland when I  could easily be writing to you from a Danish bus station or a Turkish bath house?  The answer is simple, my dear reader.  When I was trying to select 10 belly turners for this month’s top 10 list, I had some difficulty completing the task.  There was no end in sight!  But then, just 20 minutes ago, walking through this Finnish airport, I saw a line on the ground.  I thought, “my goodness! This is exactly what I need.  A Finnish line.”

And so, with a borderline horrendous pun out of the way, I present my 10 favorite tracks that I heard in October.

October Top 10

1. Magnetic Man – Perfect Stranger ft. Katy B
2. Duck Sauce – Barbra Streisand
3. True Tiger & P-Money – Slang Like This
4. Dizzee Rascal + Chase & Status – Heavy
5. Benga & Walsh – Biscuit Factory
6. Rx & Sonkin – Stop Being A Bitch
7. Starkey – Capsule
8. Ruckspin – Get Naked
9. Skrillex – Scarey Monsters and Nice Sprites
10. Nas – Bridging the Gap (Shiftee Remix)
