>>Import straight from source in Vancouver, complete with booklet and embossed artwork, limited copies only<<
A true labour of love this project, and one that has paid off handsomely – a short run pressing with 2 original tracks and two remixes, immaculately presented in an embossed sleeve and each copy ships with an accompanying 24 page booklet filled with artwork and articles – one to return to again and again…
Lighta! Sound and its crew of artists are largely credited with bringing dubstep and UK bass music into Vancouver’s consciousness. Hugely influential to the fabric of dance music in the city, they are at the heart of a dynamic community built on inclusion and respect. For more than a decade they have remained firmly rooted in many facets of Western Canada’s electronic music subculture.
The inaugural Babel Printed & Pressed record contains two retrospective original tracks and accompanying remixes from Lighta! Sound founding members Taal Mala and Michael Red. The accompanying magazine insert contains first hand accounts from the early days of Lighta! and this defining time in Vancouver, from community members Jamie Abugov and Andrew Ryce.
