DJ/producer Golden Eye’s musical ethos is grounded in dub reggae. As evidenced on his Mutual Dub EP which we premiered last month, he examines his interest in hip-hop and electronic music through the lens of dub for a sound that knows no stylistic boundaries.
Golden Eye’s Big Shot Guest Mix 309 ably displays his eclectic signature. Featuring cuts by a wide range of beatmasters, including Om Unit, DJ Rashad and Machinedrum, he weaves together a flawless session fueled by dub-influenced bass music.
“Like my label, Foundation Channel, this mix explores the music that dub reggae fathered, always paying homage to the roots,” he says of the mix. “From footwork to hip-hop to dubstep to drum ‘n’ bass, electronic-based music keeps expanding on what the fathers originated in Jamaica.”
