It's the first day of summer and I have a brand new podcast for ya! This one will be a nice accompaniment to your warm sunny days on the beach, particularly if you have a spliff and a cold Red Stripe nearby. If you've been following me for any length of time you probably know that I have a deep love for reggae and dancehall music, it has influenced me so much and it has provided the foundation for everything that we know as 'bass music' today. While a lot of the music coming out of Jamaica in recent years has taken on a bit too much of a US Top 40 vibe for my tastes, there are thriving scenes around the globe that are still pushing the boundaries of that smoked out underground sound that I fell in love with during the 80s and 90s. Most of the tunes here are from the UK and Europe, and Canada is represented as well by singers like Face T, Clinton Sly and of course our boy Kardi. One of the sickest tunes in the mix comes from upstart Alberta beatmaker Boh Nanza, really can't wait to hear more from this chap. It's bit of a longer session than last time, and it could have been even longer with all the great new tunes I keep finding! Hope you enjoy....

The SKY HIGH EP out now on Westwood Recordings!

I've been spending a lot of time over the past year boning up on my sound design and composition skills, trying to push myself to create original music instead of the bootlegs and mash-ups I've become known for. My globe-trotting homies The Funk Hunters flipped their wigs when they heard my first complete original jam, and it proceeded to lace just about all of their DJ sets since the beginning of this year. A few revisions and a name change later, we introduce the Sky High EP, my debut release for Westwood Recordings! Both tunes stick well within my funky, mid-tempo safe zone while exploring some of the sonic territory pioneered by glitch and bass music purveyors. So far the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with support from DJs around the world and an exclusive debut courtesy of The EDM Network. Needless to say I'm pretty excited that these tunes are seeing the light of day and I would be most grateful if you would listen, share and leave me a nice comment if you're feeling the vibes! Lots more like this in the works so keep your ears to the ground.
