Our boy Blackjob (aka Mannaman) sent us an email last summer saying he’d put together a new mix featuring a foray into country dub. Suffice to say that was enough to get us curious, and clearly equally enough for the mighty Solid Steel – Ninja Tune’s long running radio show – to decide to air the mix nearly one year on.
Titled ‘Summertime’ it’s an hour of dub, country and blues woven together with samples, overlays and reworkings as well as a selection of tracks from the Trashdub and Trashdub Remixed EPs alongside new Blackjob songs.
It aired this past week on Solid Steel, as part of their year-long 25th anniversary celebrations and you can now listen back and download on their Soundcloud.
You can still purchase the Trashdub 12″ which features originals and remixes from the two EPs via our Bandcamp as well as all good shops worldwide including Juno Records, Boomkat, Kudos Records, and Jet Set Records. Digital of both EPs are also available worldwide on iTunes, Amazon, Boomkat and elsewhere.
Many thanks to Dave at YHIWSI and the Solid Steel guys for putting this one out.
