Why yes, it's definitely been five years since I first started rockthedub (back when I still had a "blogspot.com" attached). It's been a wild journey - I went from needing a spot to let some of my unpublished interviews and reviews breathe, and turned into a destination for heads who want a different take on the normal shit you find on music blogs. As we always do around this time, I felt like I needed to drop a special compilation, and tried to assemble a load of previously -unreleased/exclusive material, so on this project you'll find new shit from Brown Bag AllStars, Zilla Rocca, Curly Castro, Elucid, Scripts N Screwz, Pugs Atomz & DJ Vadim, The Two. Fifteens, Whygee, an exclusive remix of a J NiCS track from Numonics, two DJ Nappy refixes, Mario Dones, Rickie Jacobs with Artic, and plenty more tracks.

I also got a grip of tracks that didn't fit the 80 minute length I place on my compilations, so here's a batch of Bonus Beats featuring heat from JSWISS, Elucid, Deal - The Villain, E Dot Dizzy, SUICIDER, R.O.E., Triple J, Stealth, Kenny Kenny and others.

That's a total of 34 tracks, for free. Not a number that's divided by five evenly... sue me. Big up to EVERY artist who sent me a track for this, or ever sent anything my way, as well as any head who has visited the site in the past five years. I do this for all of you. Shouts to my wife and my family for holding me down. I hope you enjoy this compilation, and help us celebrate our first five years. Thanks again!

EDIT I wanted to big up all of the blogs who've shown FiF love:
