When is comes to dubplates, Spooky is your man.
The London DJ and producer is one of the most hardest working people in grime. Resident on Deja Vu, Mode FM and Radar Radio (sometimes passing through four stations a week), remixing and producing tunes, playing shows overseas and, crucially, cutting some of the most sought-after dubplates in the game.
He also made one of the hardest FACT Mixes ever and holds a spot among on my top three favourite DJs of all time. FACT TV linked up with Spooky at Mode FM in Enfield to film an exclusive set of his most prized dubplates, from X and Y to Z.
As he was mixing, Spooky gave us a rundown of everything dubplate related, from their status in grime’s current revival to his owning cutting style and why you should never cut a dub without permission.
