Youngsta (UK)

Beats People Movement proudly present

YOUNGSTA (London, UK) representing Contact, Tempa, Sentry, FWD>> and Rinse Fm

Tickets available here:

Youngsta should need little introduction. One of the figureheads of dubstep since the very beginning, resident at scene-defining club night FWD>>, and the DJ who first played some of the genre’s most-loved anthems, he continues to be a hugely active figure in dubstep’s development. His weekly show on Rinse draws deep for new music, helping to expose talented new producers, and the founding ethics that defined dubstep in its early years remain at the heart of his sets.

Youngsta was one of the first DJs to play dubstep on Rinse, alongside Hatcha and Kode9, in the early part of last decade. “The sound is just me,” he says, explaining that he’s hesitant to draw a defined line around the music he plays. “It’s Youngsta. It’s what I’ve always done. People say it’s not changed much, but you can hear progression and change definitely, it’s not the same [as it was]. It’s obviously the same vibe, it’s going to be deep.”

Support from Lowquid, Minder, Jason Howson and Tommy Flowers. Hosted by Dapht One.
