Mixmag review of the Highbury Dub EP

Im pleased to say that I have just recived my first review , big up Joe Muggs for writing it:

Highbury Dub EP

Moody, broody late-night tunes

Though these are definitely not going to tear up the dance, there is a brilliant "driving through the city at night" feel to this new producer's distinctive sound, and he has a grasp of proper dubwise echo FX that few can match - plus some nice reggae horns. These three tracks are very similar, but there's a lot of real promise.

3/5 headphones

Nows it time to get stuck in creating Interloper.

Music i'm feeling...

Easy,

Its been a nice relaxing last couple of weeks, and during my down time from working on the Interloper EP I have had some time to enjoy some new and forthcoming new music.

I have always been a big fan of MF DOOM and his many pseudonyms, and with his current DOOM moniker he teams up the the late J Dilla, Ghostface, Raekwon and many others to deliver an album that has all of the lyrical clout expect from these names. So far its one of my favorite albums of the year.



I have been highly anticipating the new Mos Def album as well, and after hearing "Casa Bey", which was produced by Madlib I am even more excited about his forthcoming album, "The Ecstatic", which drops on the 9th of June.

Check it out, the bassline is swinging...



I recently saw this interview with Mos Def chatting about DOOM and it made me realise just how deep DOOM's lyrics are. Maybe one day we will get a MOS-DOOM album...



cracks me ups

The Highbury Dub EP is now Available in Lossless Formats, and the Trials of Designing a New Logo...

I took my friends advice and have uploaded the Highbury Dub EP to Bandcamp. Now you can buy it in any lossless file format your heart desires.

I have been expirmenting with Logos and the next EP's artwork, i'm no Graphic Designer but im pretty pleased with the idea so far. Im going to see if I can get a real Graphic designer to make something for me based on this idea. Watch this space...

Cutting Out the Middle Man Dem.....

Yesterday I was talking to a friend of mine called Simon Panrucker. He asked me if there was anyway other way for him to buy the Highbury Dub EP digitaly as he doesn't like itunes ,etc.

He told me about a website called Bandcamp.com which lets you host and sell your music. The best part being that anything you make goes straight into your pay pal account. Also Its lets the customer choose what file format they want the music in.

So for all you Lossless audio needs check out Lethem at Bandcamp
