WWW, October 2008 - Crucial! In 36 minutes, we're taken to the UK for an extraordinary selection of UK Style Riddims and Dubs. Eight choices, from the perspective of a DJ who wants to see her audience dance.

DJ Smiling Girl noticed, how UK tunes could make people move and groove on the dance floor almost without a stop. And it's true: there is something very, very special and energetic about UK Reggae that simply makes people wanna dance.

Reggae and especially DUB is a clearly recognizable element in most forms of digital Dance music. The Steppers bassdrum, for example, with a kick on every count of the bar, is used in most Techno and House tunes. And the Steppers happens to be the most used Drum form in UK DUB and Reggae too.

This Podcast has some very nice examples of (digital) UK tunes, a true "selector's selection" if you will, keeping people on the dance floor from the top to the very last drop.

Nice One!
