BBC 1 Radio Host, DJ, and tastemaker Mary Anne Hobbs will begin a 10-date tour of the United States on September 10 in support of her latest compilation on Planet Mu, Wild Angels. The mix features the latest in transatlantic, forward-thinking electronic music, from the underground bassline house of Starkey to the laser-dubstep of Rustie. Representing the best of what Hobbs plays on her groundbreaking radio show, the compilation will certainly prove a nice companion to Hobbs’ tour, which zig-zags across the U.S. at a marathon pace. Luckily, we get to track the doyenne’s observations and impressions of the U.S. through an exclusive tour diary here at, so check back in the weeks to come.
