"for the whole story behind this mix - visit:

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!"

DUBSTA Chapter 4

Finally back from my Macintosh melt down… here’s the next installment in the Dubsta series put together on two 1999 Power Mac G4’s to give it a more old school flavour…

Big thanks to Tone (Version Big-Fi), Jon (Fried Wire) and King Megatrip for keeping me focused...

(Speaker warning: a mixture of formats & very old hardware could create sound level fluctuation)
