Hidden Dub

Well, I'm still on the ragga tip, but this one was made a LONG time before Smile Freely ever came to light.

This track was originally meant to be a part of the "Part IV" mix (to be posted here next week, keep 'em peeled) hence the bleed of the rasta vocal at the start of the track, it was to be mixed in with the original Easy Star track, but I went for a track from the Radiodread album instead and so this got pushed to the wayside. However, I do really like it, so I thought I'd share with you all, plus I loved messing around with a picture of Bjork for the artwork.

It should be noted, I can't take full credit for the idea behind this one, as it was inspired by an excellent mash that Coldcut played in their now legendary Essential mix a few years back on Radio One, but as should now be obvious, I love reggae, and I just had to have a go at it myself.

Easy Star All*Stars are a loose collective of musicians based around 4 core artists who are known for reggae re-workings of seminal classic albums, their most famous being the cover of Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of The Moon". I first heard the album a couple of years back in a bar, and then a short time later as the warm up tape for Ian Brown at a gig, and I just fell in love with it. I'm also a HUGE Pink Floyd fan, so the meeting of two seemingly radically different genres was something I had to own. Dub Side of the Moon is seriously, one of the greatest albums I have bought in the last 10 years, and I thoroughly recommend it to everyone who loves music and more importantly, creative music.

Bjork needs no introduction to anyone, me thinks

PS. Some of you may have noticed, I've been trying to update the look of the website. Well, I've had all sorts of games getting the banner to work, stats counter, GIFs etc. The Banner still isn't working for me, hence the crappy standard one, but fear not as I have the boys from Neteffekt working on a new web design as we speak, so all being well, over the coming weeks, you should notice a definite better look and feel to the website. These are exciting days to be Colatron! Laters y'all
