Will make a post compiling good Dub radio mixes & shows ASAP

Big up



Watching this thread…

Can anyone recommend me some more stuff along the lines of this?

As thanks here’s a classic

RE: Scotty - Draw Your Brakes try some Heptones, Desmond Dekker, Big Youth, I Roy, Don Drummond, Cedric Brooks etc. Any early roots compilations with more emphasis on the vocal harmonies/soul side. Prince Fatty & Hollie Cook make some good newer stuff on that vibe.

This is a good older gem on that tip - v underrated

the newest lee perry album is so good.

im also still loving the Dubcon record, collaboration between cEvin Key of Skinny Puppy and Twilight Circus Dub Sound System. both have been in heavy rotation for me the last few weeks.

Latest Radar Radio set from myself + special guest Agitator Youth (young New Cross dub padawan)


Pretty much entirely 60’s-80’s roots, dug a bit deeper this week! Few newer bits at the very end

can’t see FB images at work, when and where mate?

Dub4Life @ Brixton Electric - 1st August


will try and be there!

Up on the Radar Radio this afternoon 2-4pm!

Got some heat + 'scloosives in the bag

been really into this record lately, much more in the cartoony/sampledelic lee perry tradition than the bass/drum minimal + heavy style so if you’re into that it’s a fun ride (also if you’re a fan of the orb they mined this for samples on a ton of their songs).

also the spotify version of ital dub by augustus pablo starts with this killer vocal tune that sounds nothing like the rest of the record. finally tracked it down:

First Radar show for a fair bit

Roots for first 45, then some 140, then jungle to round things off. Few 3 deck businesses around the hour!

Can post tracklist later if anyone’s up for


just what i need this morning. nice one man
