It’s good to know that at least SOMEBODY can actually get what is becoming a very rare mix from our boy Lush these days. Turns out our friends at the BassCult Podcast and D&B Culture figured out that if you lure him in under the guise of doing an interview to discuss his involvement with Inner City Dance and this very web site, then you can get his guard down enough that he will let you hit record while he plays some music. We will keep that in mind.
Of course with Lush, things just sort of happen and what starts as a simple question and answer session on what is happening over at the label he runs with Marcus Visionary and whats going on behind the scenes over here quickly shifts over to a whole bunch of other loosely related topics. In Lush’s typical light hearted yet bluntly honest manner he shares some stories from the past and gives a great insight about the rise and fall of “Dubplate Culture” in Drum & Bass and beyond. An informative and engaging listen from a guy respected as much for his DJ skills and history as he is for his “tell it like it is” persona.
Rounding off the 2 hour chat, Lush steps up to the decks and lays down a quick mix of brand new and mostly unreleased music from mainly Canadian producers including Rene Lavice, Marcus Visionary, Gremlinz, Artifice, NC 17 and John Rolodex.
Maybe Lush will bless us with another one of his mixtapes one day soon eh?
