Greetings everyone! Mr. Methodus invited me to compile a mix for his Revival Radio show on Bassdrive, Sundays from 2-4pm est. I (unfortunately) rarely get to put mixes together, I know shame on me. So when I was asked, I figured I’d rise to the occasion. A little late on posting this, but peep the t/l plenty of fresh beats! More to come soon!
LT Smash (Prestige Music Group) from Florida with a flawless selection of quality vintage-esque rollers. Plenty fresh dubs, a couple forgotten gems, and the saught after “Rock With You” Bootleg inside. Get on this if you are into “early calibre” liquid vibes and beyond.
In the Spirit of Caribana (Toronto’s West Indian Carnival), Marcus has put together 45 tracks of Reggae, Dancehall and Dub influenced Jungle. This mix is one hour and 45 minutes long and is chock full of dubplates, specials and V.I.P mixes. You’ll hear tracks from Marcus forthcoming LP entitled ‘Humble‘ out soon on Lion Dub International. Featured artists include: The recently deceased reggae legend Sugar Minott (R.I.P), The Dancehall Godfather Johnny Osbourne, Bunny General, Pad Anthony, Terry Ganzie, Robert Levy, Jah Dan and Messenger Selah.
There is not much serious roots reggae influenced Drum and Bass around and most stuff you can get your hands on are half-arsed bootlegs of famous tunes with sub-par production values. Not so with this mix by Marcus Visionary for channelonestation.com. Proper production and lots of famous singers, reggae/dancehall basslines, soundclash samples, dub sirens and bleeps. Mixing is on point with bassline switches and double drops.
Yep, Gilles finally got around to a Brownswood Basement Special that he’s been promising since about 2003! He spent a whole day rummaging through stacks of 12’s, white labels and old acetates and pulled out about 40 old favourites. Photek, Peshay, Goldie, DJ Hype, Source Direct, LTJ Bukem, Roni Size, Ed Rush & Optical… 110% underground heaters, classic material and golden memories, it’s by no means a comprehensive history of D&B, but it is a great snapshot of a scene in full flow.
I am quite late on this one but this is one you should not miss. Gilles Peterson providing a two hours history lesson with loads of classic tuneage from the golden years of drum and bass. New producers please take notes.
So, second time round it was easy. I actually really enjoyed it and think its come out sounding pretty good. A nice mix of styles, some good for raving other more for deep meditation. Some things are brand new some i have had for a few months but wanted to play regardless of wether there already available in the stores.
Marcus Intalex back on RBMA Radio at last. A packed show with almost 30 tunes in the mix plus the usual chat and revealings. Check out his brand new blog over at intalexlexlex.wordpress.com
Easter Monday Massive! Had a great day today! Ended up with this being recorded for www.jungletrain.net! All live, no gimmicks. Just some great tunes, classics, and some unreleased pressure by the one like MANDRAX! Keep an eye out for more of this great former-PES-playing-converted-to FIFA- geezer! (Hope he’s spamming those labelowners!!) Other than that, a lot of Spy-tunes, (Yeah I know, a LOT..) and the odd classic! Enjoy!
