Welcome. It's been a while since we've had a tailor made guest mix for the show, so it's a great honour to host a very special mix this week from the one & only Christopher Tubbs of Heads Down & Untracked Records.
Tubbs is a man of many talents, and has been carving out a niche for himself as the voice of proper leftfield/disco/house/call-it-what-you want (!) on the excellent Heads Down blog site, which has hosted great in depth interviews with the likes of Ashley Beedle, The Idjut Boys, Robert Owens and many more.
He also signed my very first solo Frank Booker record for Untracked, so one of us owes the other a drink, I'm not sure who though!
His mix is uninterrupted on part two of the show, no chat, just pure heat! Part one features a 20 minute tribute to the late, great Gil Scott Heron (RIP) and an interview with Recloose, live from Detroit at 2.30AM local time. Ooof!
Enjoy. Hit It!
