Free Dubs: Return is my latest DJ mix, created while traveling between Denver and Hong Kong and consisting of exclusively free and downloadable music. Intended to showcase talented artists giving away their dubs, this features a selection of tracks that is much funkier than the first installment. Full of upbeat productions made with a dub aesthetic; heavy bass-lines and entrancing rhythms abound.
Special thanks go to the creators for sharing their work, to Narita Airport for not only having free wi-fi but also wall plugs, and to my ever-supportive wife for graciously encouraging me to take a two-week holiday with friends and family that also enabled me to construct this mix.
Crafted, assembled, and edited using Ableton Live on a MacBook Pro.

Fresh from the lab, here is my latest DJ effort! This is the first installment in a series of FREE DUBS mixes, hope you all enjoy it:
Free Dubs: Flight is a DJ mix, fully realized while in the air between Hong Kong and Chicago, consisting of exclusively free music. Intended to showcase talented artists giving away their dubs, this features a heavy-yet-upbeat selection of tracks. Exploring the wild world of modern dub, the influences here stretch far beyond the Jamaican dub tradition, including the darker side of bass, the electric violin, and South American hip-hop.
Special thanks go to the creators for sharing their work, to Cathay Pacific for inadvertently providing an in-flight studio by including power plugs in Economy Class, and to my ever-supportive wife for graciously encouraging me to take a two-week holiday with friends and family that also enabled me to construct this mix.
Crafted, assembled, and edited using Ableton Live on a MacBook Pro.
