Bass Nerd Mixtape Vol.3 – Trapped In Dub
Salutations Bass Nerds, Funk Fanatics & Gangsters of Groove,
I hope this finds you all relaxed and contented after enjoying some chill time with fam and friends. I get the feeling right about now you’re getting vibed up for the year to come, making plans and dreaming up schemes, perhaps kicking it all off with a big night out standing in front of a weighty sound system and your favourite DJ this eve.
So in celebration of this I wanted to drop a DJ mix on you to complement your holiday chillax, the build up to your big night out, and your year to come in 2013. ‘Bass Nerd Vol III – Trapped in Dub’ is 30 minutes of the tunes I’ve enjoyed over the past 12 months or so, but just the ones with dub and reggae vibes and that 808 drum pressure. They are all tunes I’ve been playing out so it’s kinda ‘hands in the air’ while at the same time bringing the deeper vibes of the Space Echoes and Psychedelic delays that we know so well from proper dub music.
The reggae heads will notice some classic samples from the likes of Pablo Gad, Sister Nancy, Johnny Osbourne, Eeek-a-Mouse and Ding Dong, with and some sweet vocals from Turbulence, Tippa Irie, Damien Marley, but all of them have sick beats that bring them into 2013 and in many cases well beyond.
Here’s to an epic 2013 to you all… Enjoy!
