DJ Old Rat - Chapter II - The Return - RWDFWDMIX012
DJ Old Rat is back!!!!
Taking a sidestep from that gone-in-a-flash RWDFWDMIX011, we are now presenting another 60min mix of unmissable, and perfectly oddball rootical pressure, reggaeton, dancehall and even junglist excursions on tape - 'Chapter II - The Return' is the 2nd tape-exclusive mix for us from the legend known also as Steve Barker.
Known for being the original On The Wire Radio don (since his last tape, he passed the the benchmark of having aired his 2000th (!) radio show - he started in '84, and he's still going strong!) and he is a true staple in bridging the gap between Jamaica and UK's music scenes within the UK's radio scene (bringing black music to the BBC) and print magazine (he writes for the reggae column of The Wire Magazine too), and beyond.
We gave you more info and context in our last little write up for his previous tape, check that for some more accolades and fun facts!
For now, just rest assured that this 2nd mix from Steve Barker, is equally crucial if you want a heavy dose of raw dub and roots roughness, from the 70s right through to more recent generation of soundsystem-continuum sounds.
Here's the 'offical press text' from the man himself, so you know what to expect from this mix cassette, roughly -
"Side a: Observer/URoy prob Jammy dub/Culture mighty 2/Yabby you/ Dennis Brown&Big Youth - Errol T/Jah Walton/Trinity
