DUB THAT 2
Braaaaap. Long time waitin’. I’ve been trying to put this soundsystem playlist for one too many months. But today, the sun came out and the vibes are lining up. We got for you, Dub That 2, featuring the best of bashment, soca, dancehall, ragga, bass, barefoot, and reggae tunes. So get ready to swing a ling, shake yo ting, burn da lighters and most importantly dip and dub.
MICHELINO - BRIGITTE BARDOT
The 5 EUR bin caught my attention and I stumbled onto this RIFI Primary 45” Release of Michelino’s Brigitte Bardot (Cha Cha Cha). Side B features Cha-Ba-Da Cha-Ba-Di, making this the best find of an unknown 45” in my life. Brigitte Bardot is not longer just a beautiful woman and I decided to share it with y’all…for free.
CARLING RUSE - MIX FOR SSENSE
Check her out. She’s all over this here Tumblr. I just stumbled onto this girl today. Maybe her selection for dis mix aint all that rare, but it’s a solid vibe. In another wolrd, we’d probably date (as people do who share the same music tastes right?), but for now I’m on the balcony bumping these tunes here. As always, show your support over at her Soundcloud (which includes a seductive Destiny’s Child remix). Big up to VA/DC peeps and Carla for doing her thang.
I’m feeling quite feminine right now and showing my love (in hopes of more gigs for you Carla and more tunes for me)
FOR THE TRACKLIST
CHAPPELLE WEDNESDAYS - GRANTLAND
Have you ever been involved in one of those burning-the-midnight-oil tet-a-tets where you’re only still droopy-eyelids awake because of espresso exhaust fumes?
Well, if you have been (or can imagine being in a similar scenario), you’ll most likely recall yourself having a conversation about classic television programming. And folks, there is nothing more classy about classic television than the 2.5 seasons of The Chappelle Show.
Most of these conversations usually consist of hyperbolic recapitulations, impromptu impressions, and subsequent arguments as to which segment trumps which. In this same vein, our fellow Chappelle-philes over at Grantland have created a thoroughly entertaining “tournament of skits” to assist in any of our future discussions about which of the Show’s sketches tops them all.
If you’re in the mood for a hearty debate, print out a copy. If you’re in the mood for a lengthy but lovely read, head on over to the site and see bracketologist Rembert Browne’s predictions for how it will all play out.
DAG SAVAGE EP -
Two free joints of dis EP ». Thanks to the folks at The Dirty Science, we get to hear two soulful and bouncy tunes from one of hip-hop’s strongest, Dag Savage. When It Rains features Aloe Blacc and gives us a finger snappin’ strut even when we strugglin to hold the umbrella upright. Twilight gives a more “marchey” vibe, breathing justice and fire.
If you’re hooked, go ahead and check out the video for his single “DRUGS” ft. CO$$ and Choosey »
Dag, you crazy for this one.

DIP THIS FEATURE
So along with the Dub That ting we got going on, which explores dubby world sounds, we needed an outlet for out grill wearing champagne poppin’ nights. So we started up a Dip This series on soundcloud. In very similar fashion, 10 tracks that just tickle the spot for that month…
