Yellow Tongue.

Remixed by Kode9 (AKA Steve Goodman) this track was originally on Lee "Scratch" Perry's album 'The Mighty Upsetter' featuring the vocal talents of Tunisian/French singer Samia Farah. Taking Perry's chatting over the rolling breaks, kode9 has delivered a melodic movement of dub with a skippy broken beat feel.....inna true dub style.....Quality!

Both tracks also featured on On U Sound`s "Rare & Unreleased: 17 Exclusive Tracks" download only compilation. A limited edition of 300 copies "PROMOTIONAL ONLY" is printed in yellow on the labels, even though they were openly sold.

Rock It Tonight!

Another brand new tune this time from the US, the first vinyl release launching the Stupid Fly label . Roommate (AKA Justin McCuley) outta Frisco, Cali, who's other projects include "Babylon System" considers himself a bit of an animal...LOL!, The Bassist (AKA Vlad Gutierrez) a native of Portland, Oregon, have both been producing & djing on the emerging US dubstep scene for a while now....Here they collaborate on a wobbly heavy bass dubstep grind . It's the "Rock It Tonight" track that kills it for me, inna digidub stylee, thick & heavy dropping into old school drums,horns & licks to mash up & kick off the Dance anywhere.... Wicked stuff!

Jump Up!

As i via towards the more dub/reggae oriented side of the dubstep sound this is what`s to expect in the week ahead...So eyes down & get ready to skank.

First up is this brand new smasher of a summer anthem "Jump Up" brings Caper`s second offering after last year`s "Hybrid/Friction" on new label 10 Against One. The title track features Sweetie Irie on vocal duty and is a dubstep/bruk-beat/2step monster of a tune...The flipside features a bonus track "Nocturnal" which is on a much deeper dubstep sound..."Jump Up" will feature in a future "Way Of The Dub" mix....stay tuned!

A Dubstep Thang!

From today for a week we will delve into the world of DUBSTEP As some of you have heard & downloaded my "Way Of The Dub" mix series i always pepper the mix with some top dubstep tunes...emerging outta the cross cultural metropolis of London, the sound can only be described as a cross between dub reggae/2-step UK garage/Drum & Bass with bowel shaking heavy basslines

So here`s a nice little short docu/film of the scene between the UK & US to kick start our dubstep week..
