New mix of MC GARAGE!

I wanted to do a mix of rough as fuck MC-driven garage… the stuff that flowed from UK fast chat and US hiphop and eventually filtered into grime in 2002. And here it is – a new year’s present for you.

It is here.

Mix for Blackdown Soundboy Volume One: Redux

blackdown soundboy mix volume 1
Martin Blackdown Clark was kind enough to let me remix Margins Music, his first album with Dusk, and to promo the release I did two mixes for his blog. This is the first one, re-mastered, tidied up a bit, and now available straight off this site rather than via a fileshare service. It’s a selection of hiphop, r’n’b, wigged out future garage, grime and dubstep, all in dub or refixed, and quite a bit louder and punchier than first time round.

Big up Martin and thanks to Shaun Bloodworth for letting me use this amazing photo of the light at FWD / Plastic People for both this mix and for the label of my Soundclash1 release on Keysound.

Lovers Rock Volume 1

Something to warm you up in this cold dark time:

An hour of sweet, heavy lovers rock.

Plus vast quantities of tape echo and distortion.

Fabulous selection from John as usual. I just did FX, edits and mastering. Amazing introduction to Lovers Rock, if you haven’t experienced really good lovers, this is the mix you need, reckon this might change a few minds!
