In July, Mary Anne Hobbs dropped the really big news that she was stepping down from hosting her very influencial show on BBC Radio 1. She is without a doubt the most influencial radio personality in the world of dubstep and abstract riddims. I had the pleasure to play with her this year and I can tell you that she is truly all about that real love of sharing music with others. Her last show will air on September 8th and god knows it will be a big one!
Now for the good news: the person who will be stepping in that spot will be Benji B, host of the Deviation show on BBC 1xtra. Along with Gilles Peterson, Benji B is one of the radio guys that I follow the most. For anyone who likes what you hear on the MIMS podcasts be sure to check him out because we play tons of the same stuff!
Big up to Benji B, I will be following Deviation into the Radio 1 era!
