Fred Thomas' deep, astral dub mix is the perfect thing for a spacey Tuesday


You can't be too excited about the long weekend ahead yet, because you still have to work and do all manner of preparatory type things tomorrow, Wednesday. After posting this mix, Fred had this to say about it:

"Years in the making, here's a collection of the most otherworldly, unreal, confusing and otherwise damaged dub tracks that I've been compiling for the longest time. Thanks to everyone who suggested songs on a thread I put up here last spring, ENORMOUS thanks to Todd Osborn who let me know about/contributed a large percentage of the material here and thanks to all the friends who knowingly or unknowingly helped me with this project over time. I'm gonna have cassettes of this mix, as well. Message me directly if you're interested! Jah Bless!"
