Some men dump the wife and get a newer model, some men spunk their savings on what they fondly imagine is a four-wheel pussy magnet but DJ Muggs, the man behind the beat for such hip-hop classics as Cypress Hill’s Insane In The Brain and The House Of Pain’s Jump Around is making a dubstep LP. I shit you not. Yep, he’s back later in the year with Bass In Your Face a project which, despite tripping everything that can flash or beep in mid-life crisis alert central, might, just might, on the evidence of the video press release below, be quite interesting. You can’t deny the man’s pedigree.
