LEGGO! ft DAVE Q (Dub War NYC)


Dave Q was behind the first Dubstep night in the USA in 2005, a true pioneer in the game. This one is not to be missed, proper international bass music!


Here's one of his old Dubstep sets (fulla classics), I wonder what a man like Dave Q will be playing in this day and age...
