The Blends Presents: Rub-A-Dub Fashion, Part 2

The Drastics live at the Gramophone in St. Louis, MO ... Friday August 20, 2010

DAMN! It’s hot up in here for reals. Well, here as promised is yer second installment of Rub-A-Dub Fashion! Got a little more "out" on this one, and there are definitely some tongue-in-cheek selections to prove it … Including but not limited to 2 different tracks promoting Synthesizers and Computers, a track by Charlie Chaplin which breaks into 80s pop-tune-medleys, Mutabaruka warning on the ills of junk food and a rub-a-dub version of Marvin Gayes "Innercity Blues" … yowza! The mix "slowly" blends into more .. how should I say.. Jamaican-centric tunes that never gained much popularity off the island. These tracks are definitely "strange" to Americans and people with more of a blues/rock musical background .. bizarre casio-driven riddims with Jamaican cats talking in heavy patois over them.. using slang and describing situations only relevant to native JAers. But it’s hard to argue that modern dancehall hasn’t had a major influence on modern electronic/dance music (as well as vice-versa).. and these kinds of tracks are the roots. Anyway, if you don’t like ‘em I ain’t gonna be mad at ya. Just gonna put you in the corner with a bag over yer head until you DO!!!!
