Sturban Clothing Regage Foundation

This Podcast came about by a conversation where a DJ said to me what happend to the dub in dubstep? The thing that drew me to dubstep was the dub/reggae influence – much of that seems to have been replaced these days as ex-Drum and Bass DJ’s swap styles (that’s just my view).

Hi Im Dubmunkey welcome to my new podcast exclusive to Motion Radio. I am going to be playing you some history of Dub Roots and Reggae. This first show is looking at the role of the DJ.

In Jamaica in the 50’s the job of a DJ was very different to today. The DJ would be the person who who find and choose records for the sound systems to play. Often they would get on the microphone to introduce the song, and over time this developed into singing along with the record and interacting with the crowd to hype up a dance, or as it was known ‘toastin’.  So in many ways a DJ was more like todays MCs!

Towards the late 60’s the popularity of the DJs was on the increase and their lyrical offerings were popular in their own right. As a result many DJs were invited into the recording studio to cut their own records.  This show looks at that period and some of the finest artists of the time, such as Scotty, Dennis Alcapone and U Roy.

As Scotty would say, “I make the hits not the public. I tell the DJs what to play!”

Hey. This is the show I uploaded and promptly deleted last week (what a pain in the arse that was…)

I re-recorded it on Tues and in predictable fashion it didn’t ‘feel’ quite as good (although that’s no doubt to do with the heavy weekend I experienced – being 33yrs old is no joke if you like a brew…). Same music though (barring an ‘hilarious’ incident where I managed to forget my MJ tribute record which lead to a drastic re-working of the last 3 tracks). Oh – and an unlisted bonus right at the end that enabled me to get the show up to the 1hr 55mins that’s required for Reverb.

So, some great hip hop new & old, some good funk & the usual dose of other stuff interspersed with my occasionally incoherent ramblings. Selling it well aren’t I ..?

Lowdown :: Runner’s dread garage mix

***Apologies for the error with the sound in this show ***

….obsessively collecting these 2 step, dark garage, swing whatever you wanna call them soundz for the last year coverin stuff from 97/98 onwards, here’s my second Motion Radio submission after the “movements” dubstep mix a few weeks ago.

This is a first for me as I am heavily into the current resurgence of garage in many genres & subgenres out there, this time paying tribute to people like Benny Ill, Hatcha, the mighty Horsepower Productions outfit, Groove Chronicles and many others from late 90s till today inna deep, bassy, gritty and cinematic style.

mix aired on the City’s Athens International Radio 104.4 FM at the Black Athena show on sunday 29th of December 08.
