This week we travel to the Netherlands and invite Mark Boo to select for Dusk Dubs. Originally, born and raised in the north east of England, Mark grew up mostly listening to indie music (The Madchester Scene) .... of course influenced heavily by the one and only Happy Mondays, with their funky guitar riffs, lyrical nonsense, samples of funk soul & hip hop and 'House remixes' such as 'Wrote for Luck' & 'Rave On' by Paul Oakenfold. Alongside he's love of Madchester, came his love of the 'Mod Scene' .... the fashion, the scooters, Northern Soul, Motown, Ska... the whole scene. Nowadays he feels at one with music through his love of reggae and hip-hop and its this B-Boy attitude and vibe which is peppered throughout his DuskDubs selections.... Enjoy.
Here are a few words from the man himself…
It must have been a little over a year ago that I stumbled across Dusk Dubs on soundcloud, it was then that I noticed this was a weekly occurrence. From the very first volume I listened too (vol 39 by Nibbers) I was instantly hooked. Since then I have looked forward to every Sunday, I just love that sound and the vibe that Dusk Dubs delivers week in week out. I liked it so much that I thought I would share the weekly editions with my friends, after all, sharing is caring right! Then at the back end of last year I received an email from Dusk Dubs asking me if I would like to compile my own DuskDubs Vol.
I was blown away, sure I said, would love too! So after months of listening to tracks, some which have been faves of mine since high school, and after replacing a few and changing tracks due to them being selected in other volumes, these are the ones that made the cut. I hope you all enjoy them as much as I did putting it together, I am Boo and this is my selection.
Peace, Love & Dusk Dubs
I'd also like to give a massive thanks and huge gratitude to the founders of DuskDubs Jon,Tommy & Leighton Top lads with a phenomenal knowledge of music, and not forgetting all of the Dusk Dubs Family awesome people, truly a pleasure to know you's (Fistbumps y'all) X
