There are LOTS of mashups I haven’t released for various reasons over the last few years – either they’re not quite there, or they were for things that didn’t happen, or exclusives, or just didn’t get round to posting them. Problem with working in the digital age is you can be a perfectionist, but sometimes that really gets in the way, Kate ‘Decade per album’ Bush style.
So I’m having a clear out of my Mashup Cupboard, My OOK of the Convenant (hoho) – the quality will range from 99% there or perfectly playable to more rougher ideas and demos I won’t probably finish.
First up is Dubble Blow Job from 2009 – a mashup I did on spec for an Outsider Music mashup album that someone was arranging which never seemed to happen (?) – I’m a massive Bruce Haack freak and so jumped at the chance to use on of my favourite ‘outsider’ musicians, mashing his Blow Job from his last posthumously released Haackula album with RAH Band’s ‘Is Anybody There?’ which is also a rather odd attempt at synth-dub from their first LP and Disrupt’s ‘Jah Red Gold and Green’ from the excellent Foundation Bit 8-bit dub album.
It works although still not happy with the mastering, it really does have a nice curiously traditional dub reggae feel to it, it’s close in feel to White Witch Dub – loads of effects and filter sweeps and the like.
