Adventures in Dubbing is a UK label that produces limited edition tapes, hand-stamped and lovingly packaged
The problem with end of year lists, apart from them appearing before the end of the year (zing), is that you inevitably miss something out. I’ve already put together a mix of some of my favourite tapes from this year (https://soundcloud.com/adventures-in-dubbing/end-of-year-mix-2016) so here’s a list of what I couldn’t squeeze in.
In no particular order we have, abstract experimentalism from M/M and Gr◯un土 and Kabamix, various shades of ambient from Dang Olsen Dream Tape, Kyle Landstra/Braeyden Jae & Amulets, pitched down wooziness via Betonkust & Palmbomen II, the dubby minimalist techno of Kritzkom and Ferro Tapes, Beatrice Dillon/Ben UFO joining the dots, APHEX TWIN.
Now what did I forget…
