RhoDeo 1240 Beats


Hello, Beats is having bit of a retro cheque, must be that Adele Bassey song i heard twice today, Skyfall !  just in time for the end of the world.. Anyway after having troubles uploading i changed my DNS to opendns, apparently faster and more reliable, had it earlier but not yet on this new machine. I'd say give it a try, just google Opendns or change it manually 208.67.222.123 and/or 208.67.220.123.

For today there's two mid nineties samplers released by Virgin, back then Macro Dub Infection sounded cool and certainly was cool at the time. Believe me it still packs plenty of punch to drive you today... Njoy !

Dub is not just for reggaeheads anymore, it has evolved into a musical entity all its own now; most of the dub produced today exists on its own to serve the club-hopping masses. People the world over are waving their hands and shaking their hips as guitars, keyboards and vocals drift in and out of the echoing, spacy mix and the drum and bass anchor everything in that loping, rolling reggae groove. Here are experimental/new school dub extrapolations, find out what stuck.

Virgin's second volume of experimental/new school dub extrapolations doesn't reach quite as far afield as the first. The organizing principle is still dub's insidious mutation through hip-hop, trip-hop, electro, jungle, and weirdo downtempo, where the first volume seemed to move from extremity to extremity with each track. There are some gems to be found, including Rhys Chatham and Martin Wheeler's "Altesse," and Techno Animal's remixes of Magnet and Palace (!), Mouse On Mars' too-brief "Sehn Sud," and the Underdog aka Skull's "Flump."
