"Beer Before Liquor" (Oct. 2008)

I've seriously cut down on my drinking. While I used to be downing Heinekens everyday after work for the better part of 3 years, I'm now more of a weekend drinker, with MAYBE a glass of wine one weeknight. And even when I do drink, its mostly a 40 of OE or something. Anyways, a few years back, in an Olde English-haze, I discovered dubstep from that infamous Dubstep Wars set from Mary Anne Hobbs' show, and was hooked, primarily b/c its an extension of the classic Dub sounds I know and love. I don't know if its BECAUSE of the malt liquor or not, but something about Dubstep and beer always does me right.

Now, I've also promised a return to the Dub Sessions series I haven't touched on since Sept. 2007; to be honest, I've done mixes, including like 3 Dubstep mixes, but haven't been happy with them. I'd been wanting to do more actual "mixing", and I think doing those mixes helped me. Here's the first of the Dubstep mixes I am putting out, spanning a host of tunes I've loved from the last year+. I'm happy with how this one came out, but I didn't get to fit in some dubs that I've gotten... so I have to do another one. That one might get a bit weirder...

"Liquor before beer, you're in the clear. Beer before liquor, never been sicker!"
