luv323 Attack of the Giant Mutant Strawberry Strain

Attack of the Giant Mutant Strawberry Strain

dub is a mutation of reggae and has gone forth and multiplied. these heavy slices of bass, drum & echo are mutations made from the original dub mutant strain by punks, techno geeks, odd pop stars, the illbient crew, metal heads, indie kids, singers & players. partially inspired by the recent re-issue campaign from On-U Sound of some classic Adrian Sherwood productions.

luv298 Triptychlish pt3

Triptychlish part 3

this is the final piece of the Triptychlish which sketches out my formative musical appreciation from year zero to year thirty. part 3 is a soundtrack to my nineties experience and the turn of the millennium (1993-2002), reflecting major events like meeting the one i love, raving, the creation of luv, music biz training and the first of my Ninja years. each track chosen throughout this triptych has a story behind it, a reminder of people, places and parties that have shaped my first 30 trips around our sun.
