    Lately, UK dancefloors have become spaces where genres collide. It's become commonplace to DJs to refuse to be confined within any particular bracket, making for club sets that frequently veer wildly from one genre to the next: from dubstep through drum and bass, house and techno.

    It’s taken DJs and producers with enough imagination and skill – many, like Kode9, Oneman and Ben UFO, closely associated with Rinse FM – to highlight the shared ground between all these disparate sounds.

    Jeroen Snik, aka Icicle, is another such explorer. Starting out as a drum and bass DJ and producer in his native Holland, his move to London and helming of Shogun Audio’s Rinse FM show gradually drew him deeper into the ever-evolving sounds of dubstep.

    "I just decided that I wanted to incorporate more into my sets," says Icicle of that move. "Why should I limit myself? It hasn't always been very easy - especially playing dubstep tunes in drum and bass sets for the first time a few years ago, people were going 'What the hell is he doing?’” he laughs. "But now people get upset if I don't play any dubstep at all."

    Throughout, the mix's anchoring rhythms remain constantly in flux, shifting seamlessly between four-to-the-floor and all kinds of exquisite broken variants. The mood, however, remains consistent throughout. Though Icicle takes a similarly broad approach to genre as his friends and contemporaries Hessle Audio and Numbers, his selection is very different from theirs.

    Rinse:19 is the sound of the urban environment, tied deeply to the darkness, pressure and steely intensity of drum and bass – something as true of Icicle’s own dubstep and techno tracks as it is of his drum and bass tunes, as well as selections from the likes of Proxima, Youngsta and Distance.

    “My ideal world,” Icicle says, “would be where, as a music producer, you're known for a sound, but not so much for a specific genre.” Rinse:19 looks at transforming that vision into reality.

    well yeah I see what ur saying, but if i wanted to go watch a techno dj, prob wouldnt go for Icicle ect..
    I normally like to hear a high quality single genre, put reallly well together set, as opposed to a set which doesnt seem to flow cause its too busy jumping tempos. Its more creative, to be creative, with just the one style. IMO.

    I think that Icicle is actually one of the few that really pull of the genre hopping. Breathing Again is a prime example of everything that is good about dubstep.
