a few years back, scratch that, MANY years back, I was heavily influenced by artist such as Luomo, Rhythm Plate, Andrew Brooks, Brett Johnson, Miss Kitten, Freeform Five and The Freaks. ah, The FREAKS!! these artists made tracks that are pretty chill by today's standards, but were super edgy back then. tracks that seriously resonated with my dirty inner demons.
fast forward many years (6 or 7 i guess, maybe more) and the work of those artists (and many more) have given rise to the filthy, dirty, grimey, rock house, electro, dubstep, drumstep, genre, genre, blah, blah, blah of today. i still dig it. and it still resonates with my dirty inner demons.
this mix was my live set from House of Dub - Low FreaKuency Education back on August 27th, 2011 (with the addition of two tracks at the end to round out the blu mix), and the selection pays homage to the dirty pioneers of yesteryears. house, dubstep, drum 'n bass, and a few assorted break-beats and trip-hop tracks thrown in to mix it up even more. it was a fuuuun set for sure, and it doesn't hurt that a few hundred heads contributed to the vibe. thanks to all who were there with me! you know who you are, and know that you made my night!
enjoy and please pass it on...
