Forest Drive West goes deep on this contribution to Bleep’s mix series. While the blends here may move through a variety of tempos, this is an hour of music schooled in dub science and cloaked in thick, trippy textures. The first third of the mix sees Forest Drive West running at dancehall tempo, delivering ultra-heavy dubwise riddims which will delight anyone who’s dug the techno dancehall sound of labels like Gobstopper and Livity Sound in recent years. The mid-section takes the listener even deeper, dubbing out in the African Head Charge style, before Forest Drive West emerges with some thrilling experimental jungle in the mix’s second half.
"This mix contains a lot of forthcoming and unreleased music, remixes from friends, new discoveries and some old favourites" - Joe Baker/Forest Drive West
