Stepping Between Reggae & Dub Vol. IV.xx

Direct from Hong Kong: a dub/reggae holiday mix.

This was years in the making, though the end result is nothing like it would have been back then…

Simultaneously celebratory and conscious, this is loaded with bass-heavy remixes and refixes, plus some key edits and a penchant for mashing up the past and future. Jamaican roots and dub originators give way to talented modern musicians and producers from Austria, France, Greece, Italy, South Africa, the UK, and the US.

Representing Colorado and Hong Kong, The Groove Thief continues the increasingly influential “Stepping Between Reggae & Dub” mixtape series, now on its fourth volume.

.the future of dub is the present.
