Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives (Stream + Tracklist): Jah-nuary 3, 2015: Mutant Dub New Year!

???????????????????????????????????????
The Mutants have taken over on Smile Jamaica: New Year’s Bass-gasm of Modern Dub: A-Zed

Greetings,

 <10th Annual: Mutant Dub New Year: 3 hours of A-Zed; 30 sec.>

Happy New Year! Let’s start it off with all dub and bass. Neo-Dub, Modern Dub, Mutant Dub.

Gonna give the Orthodox Roots stalwarts the week off to explore my fascination with the crossover dub sound: drum & bass, electronica, downtro, lounge, dubstep, militant steppers, techno, ambient, etc. etc.

I listen to Roots Reggae at home and Mutant Dub in my car. Knives to the treble!
