MIX: Do The Thing - a BMC 12" special

New mix, mainly inna rub-a-dub stylee, early to mid 80s vibes, all from their vinyl sources! This time I picked some of my 12" singles to create a new mix with vocals combined with deejay and / or dub versions. As usual the tracks are custom-mixed and also if the 12" is already an extended tune, I've shortened it to a few minutes, as usual: no full tunes at BMC's Reggae Mixes. Labels of records are given with the side of the 12" I took the tune of. Not many of these (if any) are currently commercially available, so it's record fairs, ebay and more of such places to look for these. Personally I love every one of these records, hopefully you do too. Enjoy!

Large up!

love your mixes - nuff respect! I have a problem downloading them though ever since you moved from podomatic - it seems like they are not on z-share. Can you check please?

Many thanks

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the kind words, appreciated.

Hmm, that's strange. The downloads work fine for me. When I click on the 'here' in the post (of Download mix here, at the bottom of the tracklist) it brings me to zshare, where an online-player appears playing the mix and above that a button 'download this file'. Both work fine. Occassionally I do get some advertisement first, which dissappears after clicking 'skip this ad', usually at the top of the screen.

What upload-site does work for you? Maybe I can upload it there too.
