My latest ill.selection mix - "Mike's Got Dat Bassface - A Dubstep Mix"

A recent trend of mine is making mixes with specific folks in mind. This one is for a cool buddy of mine, Mike Turner. He suggested I make a very aggro mix that might help draw folks who are on the Hip-Hop vibe to the ruff and tuff side of Dubstep. I tried to find as many tracks as I could but came up short as I didn't want to use Dubstep with blatant Hip Hop samples and references... but I went with what draws both genres IMO together, the sense of urban dread and chunky flow of pent up aggression and rage... I could've gone with the blatantly super-aggressive "Brostep" but decided not as it feels like the Clownstep was for DnB... a carbon copy x12 of what made sublow bass menacing to begin with...
