Still not sure how I came across web radio Dionysus Dublab, but I've not let go of this site ever since. I do recall meeting up with my man Take aka Sweatson Klank, Ras G, Blu & Exile and the infamous Lycky Me clan on site in fact - @ a secret location in LA ;) .
What I would describe as a bat cave tucked away in Los Angeles, Dublab is an entity which is an intergral part of the beat scene's central nervous system - an aorta feeding the wildly pumping heart. They've been hosting artists from all around, recording mixes and live sets for all to enjoy.
The mix of music they offer is exemplary and possibly a mirror of the LA's freewheeling, anything goes as long as it's on beat, laissez faire attitude. Going thru the archived shows, mixes and songs will leave you wondering why you never locked in before hand, and certainly will make you wonder why you even cared CKLN shut down (for Toronto ppl). F*cking love it.
And you should and will to.
So as with most radio station with such liberal and independent sounds, they're on a proton drive. Bandwidth cost!
Hence, it's with an impassioned plea that i remind you to 1, lock in to Dublab, and 2 - show love with whatever you may be able to spare and contribute to this entity that is Dublab. $, £, ¥, €.. I'm sure they'll take it all.
You can find all the info you need on their site.
And as most funding drives go, there is prizing available. One of which is from LA stalwart, Sweatson Klank aka Take. He's oft showcased @ Dublab (and he an I in fact met there for the 1st time @ their studios).
So for Dublab, he's created a mix that in fact defines what they're all about: do you. We love you for it.
Sweatson's Trajectory is a Future Roots Mix compiled by Take aka Sweatson Klank that Dublab will offer as a gift with donations.
