For our second volume for year 2 we are very excited to have snatched our resident DJ Harrison away from the mixing desk and lock him in his own record vault, getting him to dig through those dusty vinyl crates, his CD racks and those beaten up old tape boxes. A DJ is often rated on his mixing skills or performance, but as you know with #DuskDubs it’s all about the selections and the order in which they progress, and this is why we are so glad to have Mr Harrison back. He knows this better than anyone, as every Sunday he has been responsible for mixing the latest mixtape, but more than that, he along with his#DuskDubs partners created the vision and a platform where the ‘purity’ of the music is the focus and nothing else. And it’s this ethos that is at the centre of Harrisons core musical beliefs – like a stick of rock, it runs right through the middle of him. So with this in mind, stand by for a musical treat in its purist form – a collection of records that give us an insight into the man’s soul and musical heritage….. take it away my man….

 

Here are a few words from this week’s selector himself:

 

" I’m going to keep this short. My Dusk Dubs mixtape has been inspired by all previous selectors. Each week, we ask you to open up, let us into your musical journey and world. And each week, we get hearts and souls. So, that’s what I’ve done. My heart and soul is heavy in Detroit. I spent much of my childhood there, most of my family lives there and I feel connected to the city, its environment and the attitudes. I grew up on their record collections, their attitudes, learning all the time how to cope with shit. People over the generations have fallen on hard times, their music was their saving grace, their sanctuary, their voice, their energy. I’m sure many of us can relate to that.

 

(This mixtape is dedicated to my late uncle, William Miller , who, when he wasn’t grafting at General Motors, would teach me about the world, how to be there for others, to not be angry, how life is all about the ride, the highs, the lows...and how to just get up, get out the door, clear the 12 foot of snow, get your ass to work and not let the fuckers get you down.)

 

Enjoy my journey through the times, minds and streets of Detroit! "
