I.D is the production alias of DJ Tomas, formerly Dub I.D. I dropped the “dub” from my pseudonym because there are a number of other artists using a similar prefix. Dub remains a central influence as well as supreme listening pleasure. That will not change. The premise for this mix: DJ mixes are too long. Specifically, my DJ mixes are too long. I tend to get overambitious and make mixes containing 20 or 30 songs; 90 minute sessions that most people don’t have time to digest or listen to in one setting. Don’t get me wrong – there’s nothing I enjoy more than marathon club sets. Two to four hours is my preference. But for this mix I’ve tried to rein it in a little. This set came out to be a few seconds shy of one hour. I’ve still got some work to do. My selection focuses on the melodic and ethereal (meaning less wobbly) side of dubstep. The past three years have seen great fusions of techno, IDM and dubstep elements that make genre distinctions blurry. Some of the best music lies in these “in-between” areas. That’s where my I.D. is too – simultaneously between genres, scenes and songs.

Another DJ/producer I.D. ( contacted me and pointed out that 11 artists using that alias are listed on Discogs. Against those numbers I am reconsidering the name change. So for now it'll remain Dub I.D., with another change imminent. - DJ Tomas / Double Identity / Dub I.D.
