Jon1st – DROP 2010 Megamix

2010 saw dubstep become so ubiquitous in popular dance music that it lost any semblance of niche appeal, and on the surface of things appeared to become somewhat stagnant. Dig a little deeper, though, and the influence of those initial sparks of innovation from the inception of the dubstep aesthetic can be found in an array of music – not just in tempo, or even style, but in approach.

Jon1st is a DMC finalist and one of the hardest working turntablist DJs in the UK, and is committed to broadening his own horizons as well as those of his fans

Jon1st is a DMC finalist and one of the hardest working turntablist DJs in the UK, and is committed to broadening his own horizons as well as those of his fans; he runs a regular night DROP which over the past few years has become synonymous with forward thinking, boundary pushing dance music. The 2010 DROP Megamix is a journey through the year in electronic music, with hip hop, dubstep, and hipdub-fusion (I might have fabricated that genre name for the sake of this article… think it’ll catch on?!), as well as appearances from the burgeoning UK funky scene, which is bound to explode this year.

It would be remiss of UK fans not to reach out to a DROP in 2011 – next up is the February 4th date with OM Unit, Slugabed, Daredevil, Jon1st, Richie K and Helix the Spacecat at Leicester’s Sophbeck. Check the Facebook page for more info
