Youngsta at Smart Bar

We don’t really remember the details of this¬†Youngsta Dj Set much as it was after the Fake shore Drive showcase but here is a bit we do recall. We met the photographer¬† with an awesome accent, took random photos and drinks were good as far as pour. Sometimes we need to unwind but don’t want said photos to sit in our archives of SO MANY that are not posted. Enjoy the visuals.

“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 leading pirate Rinse FM, the station that’s home to Plasticman, 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. Dub step Allstars: Vol.02 Mixed by DJ Youngsta Tempa.cd004 Dubstep is the sound of dark, decaying London. It’s the mutant sound of dread dub basslines and dark jungle energy; funky reggae skanks and soaring Detroit melodies fused into a new hybrid. ‘Dubstep Allstars’ are the definitive scene compilations, the series that actually gave the genre its name. This is Volume 2, mixed by DJ Youngsta, and it’s rammed with fresh new riddims and unreleased dubplates. ‘Dubstep Allstars Vol.02’ follows in the foot steps of it s predecessor, mixed by D J Hatcha. Both compilations are full of upfront and unreleased dubstep anthems, some of the tracks on Vol.0 1 still remain unreleased and exclusive. Upping the game, Youngsta draws a 100% unreleased selection: everything is fresh and brand new for your ears. Through the hour mix you encounter dubs from the biggest producers on the scene, like Loefah, D1, Skream and the mighty Digital Mystikz. It’s powerful, enthralling, mystical margin music.”
