King Megatrip - Cocaine Barbecue (promo video)
Continuing with puting videos to mixes - here's a little promo video for the upcoming King Megatrip "Cocaine Barbecue" mixtape.

It's one of those mixes he does for the kids at work -- so it's loaded with profanity and drug references -- if you're easily offended -- probably just skip it...

Dubroom.com review of Dubsta 4

Top review for Dubsta 4 from the Dubroom.com maestro -
DUBSTA CHAPTER FOUR
DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW



WWW, October 2008 - From Studio One to the current House studio's and online artists: everything DUB is in the fourth chapter of the excellent DUBSTA series. Once again, a deep deep excursion into DUB space.

We definitely go beyond the realm of what is generally considered to be Reggae Music in this one hour mix of some very extra-ordinary material. A bit of R&B and House isn't avoided at all by the selectors, which makes the (90%) Reggae even more strong.

After all, the theme of the Dubsta series is obviously DUB: from the ancient times when it was born to the present times wherein the art and technique is present in musical styles that have in themselves nothing to do with Reggae at all.

The selectors behind the Dubsta series don't go too far beyond the realms of Reggae, however. In this mix, there is even a Dub version from a track by the 1980's band "The Police" which cannot be defined other than contemporary Dub Reggae.

That is, just after one of the hardest online Dub artists at the moment (Fried Wire) gives acte d' presence with another crucial piece of original Dub Reggae: another highlight in this highly interesting and well-balance one hour selection of dub, dub and dub.

this was originally intended to be a “split” mix with an online friend of my brother’s - but the kid never came through… so the second half of this was recorded back in October of 2002, while the first part was added on later in May of 2003.

Solid Steel used 30 minutes of this mix for their December 01.2003 show… and I re-used a couple tracks from it for my latest Solid Steel retrospective mix earlier this year (I Must Insist You Eat Steel).

hope you like it… enjoy!

the short version - the solid steel guys asked if I could do a “best of Megatrip” mix… taking my six previous solid steel mixes - boiling them down to the best bits. here’s the result! first off, I was quite honored to be asked — and secondly, it was great fun to go back and visit with these old mixes and to have the chance to fix things & work things a bit differently. enjoy!"
