New Dub Mixes!

I'm part of a dc-based Dub soundsystem crew called Version Sound, and we've been hard at work putting some promo mixes together to get bookings (book us!). We've got 2 new mixes up for your enjoyment. Both have been getting heavy praise from DC to SF to NYC to UK and beyond...

The first mix is "Twiss Up" - featuring a bunch of obscure Dub tunes that you will love. We've loaded up the chamber with dubbed-out 80s arcade fx and lazers and digital bombs, which really help bring the soundsystem vibe to the mix. Twiss Up goes into some obscure Jamaican funk later on in the mix - featuring two tunes from a record called Prime Cuts. Then its back into Dub. Good stuff. The second mix "Be Thankful" is a more rootsier dub, deejay and early dancehall-oriented mix. Both are excellent mixes and won't dissapoint! Here are the stats:

I love Version Sound's work and especially the selections!! I do have a huge complaint though... PLEASE make your downloads a .zip file with individual tracks. It's really frustrating having to scan an entire CD to find a particular song. Other than that, keep up the good work!! Email me if you can do that for me. Email me anyway! Thanks. sezz_enk@excite.com
