Baroque Dub Mixtape Six

Jump up breaks, roots jungle and even a touch of hands in the air rave courtesy of Dreadzone - mixtape 06 is my homage to the old school: before jungle beats morphed into the cold and clinical moodiness of drum'n'bass, before breakbeat went mainstream in the form of house-influenced mashups... it's all about those big rolling reggae basslines and that offbeat skank. Here's to reclaiming the dancefloor with music guaranteed to put a smile on your face. And if all this partying gets a little too much for you - hang in there - Gravenhurst's uncanny imitation of Nick Drake and Sonic Boom's soporiphic ambient masterpiece are there to help bring you down gently once you make it to the other side.
