Jonny Dub in the buildin'

Mr Jonny Dub brought his badman game to our 2nd Birthday however, for one reason or another (maybe too much excitement) during his set the recording cable came out so here's quarter of an hour of sickness to give you a little flavour of how he do - tunes from Sx, Dj Zinc, Jay Z, Dexplicit + more. Swaggarific hosts = Chunky and Murkage Dave.

Sadly Krystal Klear's closing set didn't come out on the recording either but I can assure you it was a birthday set to remember...

Keep up to date with Jonny Dub, Illum Sphere + all things Hoya Hoya@their tumblr site.

This Crew are set to go hard in 2011 with several label releases forecast, dozens of international dates + the launch of their secret series starting this Saturday 29/01/11... more details here.

Sound of the Angie Steppah Inside!!

Much appreciation for the dedication; Angie almost fell victim to the snow on our 2nd Bday after waiting 2 hours for a taxi that never arrived! She threw it down alongside Murkage Dave and Chunky over Ruff House, Funky n 2-step biznizz. Badgyal selection!
