Description
More old skool dub. I'm really trying hard to create that wonderful sound!

This is made from some reggae loops I've had lying around for ages; I can't remember where I got them from. I've dubbed them up some, using the DubStation AU and some of Logic's plugins. I also chopped up some Apple drum loops. The vocal samples came from Soundsnap.com. [Thanks Smokey!]

Anyway - Mudflat Dub. Thanks for stopping by!

Would that be a Merseyside Mudflat?
This is a treat Dave, and the vocals are wonderful.

Merseyside mudflat?
No. I was thinking more of a Jamaican one. More exotic!

Thanks! I had a lot of fun putting this together. Back to my loopy roots, as it were. :-)

Thanks Feter
Yes, reggae gets under your skin. I remember, all those years ago, thinking, "what's all this about?" I got hooked and never looked back.

Great sound Dave
Merseyside Mud sounds pretty exotic from down here - it's all relevant :)
Love the depth of sound you have here - could maybe do with some more variation, or a lead instrument/voice. But that's me just showing my ignorance of the genre perhaps. Cool post.

Dub is all about bass really, great thumping bass. And echo/reverb on just about everything else! When you think about the equipment those guys used to splice up the sounds, [Tape, scissors, cellotape, glue, huge clunking echo boxes etc] and what we have available now, it makes what they produced all the better. Some astonishing sounds, that have inspired a whole plethora of electronica since. Of course, they also had the most incredible musicians making their "loops"! You should check out the genre, definitely. Get into it. Have a look at dub.com. Look out for some of the older stuff. Lee Perry, King Tubby, Joe Gibbs spring to mind.

The Merseyside mudflats, btw, are far from exotic!

Thanks again.

Thanks for the thumbs up. All loops in this one, no midi. But then, that's what they did isn't it?

Hi Dave......
The production is spot on for this type of music and I'm a fan of your rendition without hearing to the end. It's just what I need having been immersed in Sunset Boulevard for the last couple of weeks.

This is a very tastefully done mix.

Take care.

Thanks Paul
I took a break from the ambient stuff and had a play around with some loops. I like the way it turned out. And my wife does too. Her kind of music. :-)

reggae mud is slippery. however, you seem to dance across it skillfully.
