It’s finally here! The dubs I originally started work on for Pama Intl back in 2008 are finally hitting the shops next month. Wrought by bouts of homelessness, illness and Duppy Writing, The Seventh Dub collects my versions of Pama’s 2008 album Love Filled Dub Band on strictly limited and heavyweight vinyl. Featuring members of The Specials and The Upsetters and my current recording compatriot Deemas J to name but a few star guests, I’ve taken the original LP on an apocalyptic ride through the last days of 2012.
Only 250 copies will ever get pressed on wax so don’t hesitate, get your plastic out and pre-order yours now or mark my words, there will be hell to pay. Preview a mix of tracks from The Seventh Dub below…
In other news I’ve updated my mixtapes section as many of the old links have died so you can now stream a few of my mixes via mixcloud with more from my back catalogue to come. More info here.
Last up as we’re nearly into the yuletide party season so it’s time to announce my NYE movements which thankfully this year only involve the one gig, having spent most of last year’s running between venues.
This year it’s back to the old faithful of The Book Club in Shoreditch where rhythm n blues rebels The Big Ten Inch are teaming up with the Disco Shed posse to bring you The Big Shed Inch featuring two floors of bass, boogie, jump-jive, jazz and no doubt both kinds of R&B at some point with guests including DJ Format, Jerry Dammers, and The Congo Faith Healers playing live. I’ll be holding court in the shed at midnight and there’s a New Orleans Mardi Gras theme so feel free to get dressed for the occasion, assuming you’re not perplexed by the prospect of celebrating easter at new years.
