Mary Anne Hobbs is a hero of mine. She is your hero too if you like dubstep, as her championing of the wobbly genre on BBC Radio 1 is responsible in large part for the distribution of the sound out of the dank basements of the UK and into your earholes.

She heads out on a ten day US tour starting September 10 to promote her new mix release on Planet Mu called Wild Angels (out September 9), check the tour dates and follow along with her tour diary on XLR8R.com right here.

I heard Mary Anne Hobbs perform at Low End Theory with the Glitch Mob and Flying Lotus a few months back (read my review here) and that club was an inch away from complete obliteration. She returns to LA at Low End on September 23 and will also be at the 2009 Decibel Festival in Seattle in the super fucking sweet BBC Radio 1 Showcase going down Saturday night September 26 at Neumos with Daedelus, Nosaj Thing, Megasoid, and Mike Slott. Oh yeah, that’s right.

You do not want to miss this woman; she is an amazing force in the international electronic music community. And she absolutely rocks!
