For this week’s mixtape, we welcome Pooky to the Dusk Dubs family.
"So a bit about myself, I've, been buying records since the mid to late 80s, my music taste started out with hip-hop then progressed to acid house and then through to hardcore, drum and bass etc in the 90s, I was pretty narrow minded in the 90s with my music tastes, but as I've gotten older I've come to appreciate most of the genre's out there, and I'm always on the hunt these days for new music.
The collection of songs you're about to hear is a small taster of what can randomly come on my mp3 player while I'm out and about, some of the songs I've found from being sampled, some remind me of certain times in my life like Family Stand - Ghetto Heaven. Some I feel are just ground breaking from their time like D-Styles - The Murder Faktory from the amazing all scratched album Phantazmagoria which you need to check out if you don't know!! Yet others I feel are perfect for a lazy afternoons like The Upsetters - Black Vest, Nino Nardini - Shere Khan, Monster Rally - Creeping Ghost, and then others are just personal favourites like Third Sights - Rhymes Like A Scientist, Yann Tierson - Comptine d'un Autre Ete and Bauhous - Bela Lugosi's Dead.
Anyway that's a bit about me and my selection, I hope you like what I've chosen for you and maybe I've helped you discover some new music along the way too.
