Where Were You In 02?

If that sounds familiar, it is definitely a Zomby reference. Unlike his album which showcases early 90s hardcore/rave, Where Were You In 02? is a radio show on Radiate FM (FIU College Radio) that focuses on dubstep. 02, get it? It was started by a DJ who calls himself "The Ace Of Bass" back in May, and has been going steady ever since. We caught up with him, and he explained why he started the show:

"I started the show, mainly, because there was a huge influx of dubstep/bass music essentially running through all of the Miami electronic scene, currently. And there seemed to be a huge absence of dubstep on the radio, and virtually no dubstep show we can associate Miami with. People would have to listen to BBC Radio 1 or Rinse FM for their fix of bass. So I figured since I've grown a lot of interest in the genre, along with grime and a fascination with jungle as well, I'd do a radio show."
