2017 In Aspic - Episode 8
I really dig the process of putting these mixes together.
Episode 8 began a few months ago as a mix of Dub and Reggae tunes that I had written about over the year. But over time, songs from these genres were replaced one-by-one with eclectic tunes from the worlds of Electronic, Dream Pop, Hip-Hop, and Dance.
Each new addition morphed the mix into something better, rather than devolving the vibe. Soon I was replacing replacement songs, as new tunes - by artists like Baxter Dury and Curtis Harding - found their way into my orb.
As I listen to the finished product, I still hear the dub that weaves - sometimes subliminally - throughout.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed the journey of assembling it.
