One of the strong recommendations from The Great Escape conference sessions last week was that music podcasts should be uploaded to YouTube, because it’s the second biggest search engine, after Google. So I’m experimenting with a couple of episodes of DSZ, TDZ and H2Z. Check them out and please tell me what you think!
Checkout this video from Bighton-based duo, Nordic Giants. I saw them at The Great Escape Festival and I want to see them again soon. The video tells a bit of the band’s story, but you really need to see them live to fully appreciate the concept.

PCP#400 will be a day late, ‘cos, Grumbler, Clithers, Justin Wayne and I (and I) are having such a good time at The Great Escape. More music and incoherent ramblings will follow in due course!
Various Artists – Melodica Time, is a 4-track EP featuring some heavy stepper dub action from 4 of the best dubbists from the French online dub community. The first release from Angel Dust Records since the end of 2011. Good to see them back!
Thousand Yard Prayer – World Without End, is a 4-track EP from another of the alter-egos of the Secret Archives of the Vatican crew, over at Broken Drum Records. Hot on the heels of his 2002 release (!) Sympathy for Hosea, Thousand Yard Prayer gives us another 4-tracks of Transglobal Breakbeat Dub Science. Magic!
If you’ve not already spotted, the first albums from John Peel’s amazing record collection has gone live at The Space. It’s obviously goiung to take a long time to get all of the all of the 26,000 LP’s, 40,000 singles and many thousands of CDs digitised and uploaded to the site, but the process has started, and we think that’s fantastic.
Head over to checkout some of the goodies already uploaded. I’ll be spending the day there whilst I’m working. See if you can see me!
The Dub Step Zone is approaching it’s 50th episode. Since starting in January 2009 I’ve played some fantastic tracks and get lots of downloads and listeners. A big thank you to all of you, and to all the artists that have made their tracks available via Creative Commons or other means. That’s what makes the show great.
I want to make episode 50 a crowdsourced episode. If there’s a track that you’ve loved in the last 49 episodes that you’d like to hear again in a DSZ Mega Mix then please drop me an email at [email protected] and tell me which track you think should make the cut. Or just drop me a comment at petecogle.com.
