Digidub: the occult roots of dubstep. New Murdertone mix

Uncarved correspondent and reggae archivist Pete Murdertone has done a fabbo mix for Jahtari showcasing the eighties digidub sound which is such an important precursor of dubstep, and before that garage, and before that, acid house.

It’s a streaming Flash-based recording only, I’m afraid, but it’s record-able, it sounds great, and it has some of the key tunes.

Go here for the mix. Big up Pete for mixing it and Jahtari for hosting it.

And for further elucidation, go read John Eden’s seminal article on the connection between digidub and acid house, ands all that came after: London Acid City: When Two Eights Clash.
