DL EP #2!
Wow, 5 days to go, and the goal has been reached! There are not enough thanks for all who have helped make this happen. It really has made me and the artists involved in LoDubs think quite a bit more positively than we where back when the situation that prompted the need for this campaign emerged, that's for sure!
Now, although the goal has been reached, I must admit that the reason that we set it at that amount is because that is what we where hoping we could raise, and what we could be assured that along with a bit of budgeting from other sources would allow for us to complete both projects. In these final days, anything that we can raise over and about the goal will really make that aspect a lot simpler, and alllow us to do more. Furthermore, we are pretty close to the goal we need to get to in order to do the colored vinyl editions for backers only. So I would not discourage anyone from jumping in at any of the levels that will guarantee you a copy of these releases as a Kickstarter edition. There will be another very significant bonus beyond the colored vinyl, bonus tracks, and CD bundle with each of these releases in that form that will make each a highly special item. I can't say more, as I am hoping to keep it a surprise, but rest assured, all who receive these editions will be one of around 50 people who will open a package and find something more that really kick it all up a notch!
As for the other bonus, the DL EP#2, it is now complete, and just being sorted out. We will send out the links to this shortly after the campaign is complete! Here is the tracklisting:
01 - Swarms - Polar (HxdB RMX)
The vocal and warm atmospheric low end of Polar is somehow perfectly suited to HxdB's signature future garage sound.
02 - Clubroot - Rise To Surge
Unheard, in any form. This will only ever come out as part of this EP, and thus will only be available to backers. He has so many great tracks just waiting to see the daylight, giving one as good as this is really just his way of saying "thanks".
03 - Pirate Soundsystem - Rush Around (Chrissy Murderbot vs 6BLOCC Refix)
Crazy combination of the hyperspeed 4X4 footwork-esque sound of Murderbot and and 6Blocc's knack for the giant, destructive melodic bassline. pure peak hour business...
04 - Pocz & Pacheko - Tormenta
More of that Psychedelic Tribal bass from our favorites south of the equator.
As stated above, expect the DL code for this EP in the days following the completion of the campaign, and thank you again!

~THE COMPLETE PICTURE – LODUBS OVERLORD VERSION!~ So yes, this includes all the above in the Super insane Version, EXCEPT THE DIRECTORS CUT. Why, you ask? Well, because the first pledge at this level will receive a Dub Plate cut of that release! When we put together THE DIRECTORS CUT, We where in a rush to get the record out, and instead of doing a test pressing, we did a 12” acetate cut to check the mastering. There is literally ONE COPY of this item in the world, and that is the way it will always be. And if you are the first at this level, that is what you will receive. Of course, should that be gone, we have a few other spots available as well, the other of which will receive either a individual LATHE CUT or DUB PLATE which will also be an item only one of will ever exist in the world. Some of these cuts are used for our soundsystem, and may be tunes that will never be released in any other form, ever!
