Gussie

Don’t miss this sharp mix from the two Swedish soundsystems Rough Lynx and Million Vibes — A Tribute to Augustus ‘Gussie’ Clarke. Some may think the man’s sound is a bit cheesy and too polished, and while that’s true at times Gussie still delivered plenty of amazing tracks. Gregory and Shabba did some of their [...]

DJ APR's podcasts

DJ APR from San Diego’s Creation Soundsystem sent me an email pointing me to his podcasts. Check them out over at dj_apr.podomatic.com for some nice heavy roots and early dancehall selections.

Finland goes digital

But first thing’s first. Got an email from Finnish selector Ville Geitel, who’s put together Digitalick — a nice mix of early digital tracks. Definitely worth checking out. Download it from here, and check the tracklisting here.

Blogariddims 27 – Everybody Loves The Sunshine

One thing I liked about the first round of the Blogariddims podcasts was the British feel of the whole thing. Or maybe that’s the wrong way to put it, since it comes out of Ireland. I’ve probably offended someone now. But the point being, the weekly mixes were dominated by dubstep and grime, old hardcore [...]

Who Cork The Dance?

New mp3-blog that looks great. Heavy, heavy foundation soundsystem tapes – whocorkthedance.blogspot.com.

Dem seh WAR!

The most important soundclash of 2007? John Eden vs Paul Meme, all on the Answer riddim. Check out the entries here and here.
My money is on Eden for playing the track that got sampled by SL2 on “On a ragga tip”.

Rootsman again

Bradford’s own Rootsman returns with the second mix-CD of heavy dubplates. Download it here. Both the Top Cat special and the Gregory are very cool.

Street Level Mixes

Got an email from Street Level Soundsystem, out of Australia, with links to three promo mixes they have done. “Welcome to Street Level” and “Rude Boy Skill” both juggle bashment riddims from the last year or two, and “Live By The Gun” is strictly soundkilling business. Gunman lyrics and some good dubplates. Download all three.
Welcome [...]

Mixes etc

There’s not been much blogging for yours truly lately, but I’m actually heading to New York next week. No doubt I’ll find some records there worth writing about.
Laziness and / or real work (pick your favorite) has kept me from keeping up on what’s been going on in the world, but I did just discover [...]

From the dubplate basket, vol 1

The Rootsman just dropped a wicked mix-CD, available for download at his Third Eye Music website. Strictly dubplates from an impressive array of artists. Riddim wise it’s mainly slow one-drops, and a strong finish with a couple of versions of Hugh Mundell / Augustus Pablo’s always brilliant “Africa Must Be Free”. Robert Lee opens the [...]
