Kode9 has shared rare footage from BBC 1 Dubstep Warz in 2006.

Earlier this month, Mary Anne Hobbs marked the 15th anniversary of her seminal BBC Radio 1 Dubstep Warz broadcast with a special show on BBC 6 Music, Dubstep Warz at 15.

Now, Hyperdub’s Kode9 has shared archive video footage from the recording of the show, featuring Hobbs herself, Deep Medi Muzik boss Mala, late poet and MC, The Spaceape, Benga and The Bug. There’s also appearences from Skream, Loefah, Sgt. Pokes, Hatcha, and Crazy D. 

Hobbs previously uploaded an archival recording of the original Dubstep Warz broadcast to Mixcloud in 2011. “This show marked the global tipping point for the dubstep sound,” she said at the time. “Mala, Skream, Kode 9 & The Spaceape, Vex’d, Hatcha & Crazy D, Loefah & Sgt Pokes and Distance changed the world of global dance music forever. Dubstep Warz still sounds as vital, as primal and as thrilling as the night we threw it down.”
