Baroque Dub - wearing nothing but a dub attitude [1999-2012]

• July 31st, 2020

Baroque Dub was one of the projects, that encouraged me to start an own podcast. 44 mixtapes, 16 digital 7" and 12" single releases, a web radiostation, samples and midi riddims spoke for them selves (btw: all releases can be downloaded for free here or here).
Starting with "reggae tinged electronica with one foot in the chillout lounge and one foot on the dance floor", the second track features Sure Dread as well as the veteran Barry Brown. "Cuss Cuss" and Jackie Mittoo´s "Drum Song" are digital reworks of the classic riddims, of course. The next two tunes are moving in a little bit darker electro-reggae/dubstep direction. With "Every Tongue Shall Tell" the mixtape turned back to dub reggae, "Artibella Dub" is an organ driven version of the Ken Boothe hit song. From "the soundtrack to an imaginary film detailing the exploits of a young man's struggle through the trials of ghetto life" recorded using an AtariST, an E64 sampler and a Mackie mixer "King Sequence" is a sample loaded masterpiece from 1999 (!). "Ghetto People Song" is a LalaBella riddim, originaly voiced by Everton Blender. Southside Dub: "A slinky anthem for more leftfield dancefloors." Ini Kamoze's "Burnin'" comes in a slow and heavy dub version, "Valley of Dub" appears in two droning versions. The set is finished with a "slow burning fat slice of electro dub" called "Lollipop Dub" . Booom!!

100_baroqedub_cover.jpg

So, here´s the playlist:

  1. Baroque Dub (2006) - Wearing Nothing But Attitude  00:00:00
  2. Sure Dread feat. Barry Brown (2006) - Redemption (Baroque Dub Champion Version) 00:05:44

Part two takes a step ten years into the future: Alpha Steppa is on the scene and meets international artists like RSD, Flex Zagazzow, Lutan Fyah, Ras Tinny and Sistah Awa. And of course started colaborations with Alpha & Omega, somtimes together under the moniker "Dub Dynasty". They were remixed by a lot of artists like DJ Madd or Dutty Hands & Cranky General and joined by vocalists like Joe Pilgrim.

Pressure Drop - Sounds Of Time (1992 - 2003)

• April 13th, 2020

One of the projects, that can never fail: Pressure Drop (aka the Blood Brothers: Justin Langlands and Dave Henley). Named after a Toots song, playing music influenced by such genres like Hip-Hop (Funkee Joint), Dancehall (Warrior Sound), Soul (Groove Me), Drum & Bass (Silently Bad Minded (Roni Size Radio Edit)), Dub (Metamorph (Pressure Drop Mix)), 2Step (Warrior Sound (Ed Case & Carl H Remix))and everything in between. They did DJ sets, did remixes for other artists and were remixed themselves, their tunes work on headphones or livingroom stereo equipments as well as on radioshows or sound systems. Always serious, sometimes a little bit dark and melancholic, everytime very intelligent, groovy music.
Pressure Drop present almost every style of London based black club music in the 1990s, last but not least showcased on their "London Underground" compilations (the Raw Stylus version of Bill Withers´"Use me" is one of my alltime favourite tracks).
