A discussion with Mary Anne Hobbs Part 2

This two part series of up close and personal interviews with BBC Radio 1 DJ Mary Anne Hobbs is a unique insight into the leading lady of electronic music. In Part 2 we speak with Mary-Anne about her role in the international push of Dubstep and its splinter genres, and how quickly the hype grew, spread and mutated into something new.

We also speak with her on a deeper level about what makes good music good, and what lives in the DNA of a brutal / beautiful track. Standing at the helm of the pioneering experimental show on Tuesday night / Wednesday morning 2.00-4.00am (formerly known as the Breezeblock), this passionate and authoritative DJ talks to us about her 3rd annual Sonar showcase, the radio show that exploded Dubstep across the world and working in an egg packing factory.

This discussion is an absolute treat for anyone interested in the history and future of new and emerging music. Listen to the interview here and find MAH at http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/maryannehobbs/.
