This week’s guest mix has been literal years in the making. Snooks and I have exchanged emails, since, well longer than I can remember actually. Certainly when Soho’s Blackmarket Records was still open, which is a while back now.
He’s had a long time interest in all things dub and sub – from his excellent label Niteshade Inc, to his day job with SUBPAC. In addition to his heavy felt sub bass and drone ambient sound he produces abstract digital art as BassScapes.
Exploring deep drone and dub weight sonics, in session for Mantis Radio 327, it’s Snooks. Finally.Missed a show? Catch up with the archives.
