Sails are set. Depth charges at the ready. Haunted vinyl resurrected. For this DJ mix, I selected a few archival cuts of dub techno, dubstep, and dub riddims, replete with all the clicks, pops, and hisses of wax that is, in some cases, over 20 odd years old. Mixed entirely on vinyl in one take, with the crystalline sun setting behind snow capped mountains, and with the aid of a Roland RE-201 Space Echo to sound-out the seaborne soundwaves, Riddims & Routes is a two hour journey into the echoes, reverbs, and haunted spaces of dub. May this sound pull at but a few threads of the bass culture that has crossed genres and styles as well as continents and countries.
