Smile Jamaica Digital Dubplate: Mutant Dub Mash-down 2017!

Greetings,

In the middle of Spring fund drive at your station that rules the nation. So in order to keep fresh roots on the podcast version of Smile Jamaica, I cooked up three hours of my specialty: Mutant Dub.

Requested by a Twitter follower. These are the heavy bass and echo with Jamaican drum ‘n’ bass with modern electronic and echodelia.

Play loud so the bass pulsates!
