Number 11 in London pirate station Rinse FM’s CD series is compiled and mixed by Oneman.

Oneman, known to his mum as Steve Bishop, didn’t produce until very recently, but had already made his name as one of dubstep’s tightest DJs – especially back in the days when it wasn’t such an obvious move to mix Digital Mystikz tracks with 2step. A resident at the House Party squat raves, he was recruited to Rinse FM last year, and his first show for the station is still semi-regular listening at FACT HQ.

“People will probably expect a bunch of garage classics”, Oneman says of the mix.

“The thing is, I don’t find many classic tunes in today’s music. Most stuff has a short shelf life which is cool but that’s why I would delve back to the older music… [chuckles]

“Yeah the opening tune on the mix is a bit of a statement from me. You gotta move forward though, this CD is a selection of what I like now. I don’t wanna get stuck as that guy that plays garage, I’m moving on.”

We’ve only listened to just over half of it, but trust us, ‘Flying Saucer’ into ‘Citizens of the City’ is a bit of a moment. Ms Dynamite, Zomby, Kode 9 and more feature.
