[comment faire?/how to?]

Info :
A few months have gone by with only one or two new mixes appearing over here but thankfully, we haven't received much complaints yet. After this nearly-hiatus period, we're glad to announce we're back with bags and bags and bags of new records to play. Beside our usual record-digging over-activity, cool labels like Tru Thoughts, Ubiquity, Freestyle, Melting Pot, First Word, Ropeadope, Sonar Kollektiv, Les Disques du Telegraphe or T.I.M.E.C. have been sending us some incredible stuff recently, and we cannot thank them all nearly enough.

Things start heating up with a "21st Century Roots Vol.4", carefully selected by one of our most persistent DJs, Djouls, and especially blended by the n°1 french soundmaster, Grant Phabao, whose MP3s might sound better than your WAVs... As you might already know, this series focuses on reggae-tinted music that's been produced after the year 2000. Expect a tight selection of roots reggae, jamaican funk and dub - perfectly fit all the lazy iPod smokers out there. The Mr Vegas vs Grant Phabao bootleg is 100% exclusive and we'd love to get more info on The Flying Customs band/group/artist (??) who sent us this back-to-the-roots marvel...

Coming soon, a serie of 3 new Molesting Laura mixes for all lovers of surprising covers...
