memekast mk031 » Nick Argon

As the Memekast resumes broadcasting from the GhettoBox, we brought in Bay Area dubstep champion and Argon label-founder Nick Argon. Started in 1999, the first few releases on Argon Records were drum & bass tunes primarily from San Diego's Stratus and Static of Australia, with appearances by Profound Noize, Gridlok, and others. With the release of Matty G's For the Smokers / Bitter Love 12" in 2006, Argon announced the beginning of a new chapter, focused on the slower, grimier sounds of dubstep.

These days Argon is fast establishing itself as a global leader in dubstep science, with a steady stream of massive releases from artists like SF bad men Matty G and Babylon System, Skynet (whom you may remember from releases alongside Skynet on d&b labels like Renegade Hardware and Moving Shadow), and Finnish rising star Tes La Rok.

For this episode, Nick brings the fiyah with 15 big tunes, including some upcoming Argon releases.
