We Shot A Mix 2.2-- Mundo and Lifted MC Live Mix

So if you've ever seen anything we've written about Dallas based dubstep producer Jason Mundo and his monthly Dub Assembly parties over the past year and a half, then you've probably recognized that the theme of  these writings can be summed up in one word: underappreciated.  As a producer and a DJ, Jason Mundo has received a good deal of international critical praise over the past couple of years, but you'd never know it if your only source of info was mainstream local media.  We'll have a lot more to say about all of this coming up in the next week or so as the Dub Assembly crew prepares to celebrate their second anniversary on July 18th at the Green Elephant, so for now, we'll give you a little taste of what they're all about with this live mix, pulled from a recent Mundo and Lifted MC performance at Dub Assembly.  All of the tracks are either original Mundo tracks or Mundo remixes, and they provide a bit of insight into what is going on at Dallas' live dubstep events.  Here is the download link, and here is the tracklist:

Admiral Bailey - Jump Up (Mundo Remix)
Cutty Ranks - Limb by Limb (Mundo Remix)
Mundo - Hear Youts (from Dub Assembly 007)
Mundo - Whose Gonna F**# With Us

I'm enjoying the music.
The guy MCing throughout with the thick jamaican "bumbleclot" accent is a white dude though? Uh-oh.
He's the Al Jolsen of the aughts, maybe.

I have to say as good as this mix is, it sounds so much better on a good-sized pa. Dubstep is definitely one of those genres that can't be fully appreciated at home.

Thanks to wsjr for being one of the few local media to give a shit about Dub Assembly. Those guys (especially Mundo) are amazing, and yes, underappreciated.

10:45 - the whole "white American MC spittin Jamaican Patois" thing is a carryover from drum n bass that found its way quite naturally into the grime/dubstep scene. Cheesy? Sure. Funnier when you're drunk? Absolutely.

I agree... dubstep is always better live on a PA.
