Fresh outta the bedroom here in Hong Kong comes my latest mixtape, “Stepping Between Reggae And Dub Vol. III.” This third volume finds the future overtaking the past as bass-heavy dub meets funky reggae. Innovator King Tubby gives way to Gyptian’s update of “Murderation;” things go global as S. Africa (Pure Solid), Romania (Mahala Rai Banda), the UK (Jstar), and Germany (FreeRoots) bring you some skanking tracks. It’s all digital as wellwellsound drops a catchy groove on a Buju Banton remix, and then Brazil’s Digitaldubs lay down a crushing uptempo dub-hop track. The latter stage of the mix has the always mighty Mungo’s Hi Fi, a dubstep-free funky-reggae remix of “Make It Bun Dem” by Dreadsquad, and a great closer from Dubmatix. Available on Mixcloud, since Soundcloud is getting more repressive by the minute it appears:
Special thanks go to Mahala Rai Banda and Jstar for the promo, to FreeRoots and Youngheart and wellwellsound for sharing their tracks, and to all the artists for making such fantastic music!
