It's been a while since we've had an international act roll through the SHAPE doors, so this week Big Ape brings you one of UK Dubstep's most respected names YOUNGSTA and MC TOAST.
If you've heard a Youngsta set you'll know: he's a master of the decks. Twisting, tweaking, scraping his 10' dubplates into a sub-bass assault wave he treads the exhilarating line between implosion and explosion, dark and light, pleasure and pain. Youngsta began DJing at 12, appearing on London garage pirate Freek FM at 13. Now 20, by day he work s in seminal Soho record shop Blackmarket, before trekking back to his home in Essex. By night you can catch him on Rinse FM, the station that's home to Plastician, Wiley and Roll Deep, and that broke Dizzee Rascal. On Rinse he'll be deep in the mix, pulling off jaw-dropping mixes - but never, ever speaking on the mic.
You’d be hard pushed to find an MC as widely respected as Rinse FM’s Toast. One of dubstep’s stalwarts, along with Youngsta, you’ll find Toast keeping the airwaves locked to Minimal Mondays – the collaborative 11-1am slot every Monday on Rinse that has launched many a producer’s career. When not on the mic in the studio with Yunx, Toast can be found supporting the scene’s finest DJs on live dates across the world.
