Rating: Dubmatix strikes again by finding the bass in J Boog’s original Live Up (admittedly not a tricky task with a reggae track) and then whacking the gain right up and boosting the drums for this mighty rub-a-dub remix. And that’s pretty much it. And there’ll be no complaints because the original was already a dope tune with a super soulful vibe so didn’t need much fixing. Frankly there couldn’t be a more fitting opening to Oneness Records’ admirable if doomed attempt to prevent the onset of winter through the power of reggae music on their mammoth twenty-track Oneness Remixed compilation.

“Plymouth’s 14th best DJ” returns to drop a prime selection of reggae party breaks on the Everyday Games EP (DOWNLOAD HERE) that sees riddim applied to both Arrested Development and De La Soul. Dat Good’s skankin retouch of Basement Jaxx’s Good Luck is the runaway winner though. All on-the-ball vinyl slags will have picked this up in the last few weeks but some (like me) might not have got around to turning it into a digital format. Makes a change though – I’m sick of finding out something’s out on CD and digital but not vinyl – those dubplates are costing me a fortune.
