My interview with Inverted Audio is now up. It’s here. PLUS, my new mix for Inverted Audio is also now up. This is the follow up to the Dub Tech mix from February – only all digital instead of all vinyl (and all the better for it).
It’s very percussive, deep, techy dubstep – the signature tunes here are probably from Peverelist and Ramadanman so that gives you an idea of what to expect. Plus a bit of techno-y funky, some future garage, some 3:2 to start, and a cheeky bit of r’n’b over thdriving 4×4. I am REALLY pleased with it. There are a couple of nice little dubs from Paul Hotflush on there that not many people have too.

Narcossist: Metronome (Grievous Angel Remix)

I spent a delightful day at the distributor yesterday, stamping and marking each and every Lady Dub in the world. The finished vinyl was back from the plant a bit quicker than we expected so I hotfooted it over to Manchester – and there they were! Box after box of beautiful, crisp virgin vinyl.
Each copy now has the Devotional Dubz logo stamped on the bag (quite a nice bag for a plain white, actually), together with a mark on the centre. Most of them are like the pic below – “Lady” or “Lady Dub” in ink on the a-side, plus a somewhat distorted, flaked out logo stamped on the b-side.
The majority have some level of unique marking. For example quite a few just have this written on them:
Tat says “Rollage” in case you can’t make it out. There’s a bunch of different stuff.
It took hours, but it was worth it. I did debate with myself about whether it would be better to leave them as pure whites with just the logo on the bag. But in the end I decided more was actually more in this instance. The image on the bag does actually look really good – as you can’t quite see judging by this pic:
And the distorted logo on the label looks great, I think:
Lets hope this one sells – I’m mad keen to get on with the next two.
listening to youngsta on rinse on a stream in a hotel room in stockholm, got a nice shout out from task. lovely
