It's time for a hot July Spotify playlist. Here we have over an hour of the genius of Osbourne Ruddock, better known as King Tubby. Along with Lee "Scratch" Perry and a host of engineer/producer artists Tubby was right at the center of the golden age of Jamaican dub in the 1970s. And he really was the King. Perfect for beach, BBQ, park or lounging in the back yard! From the mind bending "King Tubby meets Rockers Uptown" to "Dr Satan's Echo Chamber" this is a selection of dubs we dig! Plus one of the tracks includes the immortal line "He's got scorpions in his underpants."

Well here we are again at the beginning of a new month and a new Spotify playlist. This time we've both hit the randomize button. There's no thematic unity whatsoever, just a bunch of stuff we both like.

Discovered in the archives…..late August 1999. Yikes! So which iconic studio was I recording in? Clue: it’s near where Harvey used to live….Answers on a digital postcard please!
The Skylight Diner on West 34th street and Ninth avenue. Just down the street from Harvey’s place. Cool.
Here we are in fine company! Thanks to the folks at Spotify we follow on from set openers The Orb on the "Lava Lamp" playlist with Cloudface. Some really cool tracks here on this extensive and well researched look at contemporary ambient electronica. Enough for the whole weekend… link in bio. https://open.spotify.com/user/spotify/playlist/37i9dQZF1DWWtqHeytOZ8f?si=Z8WaAGYjQN6GqzE1tC_5YQ
The languid and impressionistic tones of Chucks pedal steel blew us away on his reading of our “Cloudface”, featured on the Cloudface remix EP. swipe left to read Chucks comments on the process. And we extend our thanks for his sublime perspective on our modern folk melody. Available in all the usual places and Woolworths. #deliaderbyshire #deliaderbyshireappreciationsociety #chuckjohnsonmusic #sixdegreesrecords #remix #ambient #ambientmusic #pedalsteelguitar #spotify
Our May Spotify Playlist is ready! This month we have abandoned the themed approach and gone for a balls out eclectic, some might say schizophrenic mix. From Die Antwoord to Ligeti (not that far really). Enjoy. Link in bio. #deliaderbyshire #deliaderbyshireappreciationsociety #spotify #sixdegreesrecords #spotifyplaylist
We asked Steve Hillage and Miquette Giraudy about their approach to the Mirror System remix of our track "Cloudface." Here are their illuminating comments: "We spent some time trying to work out how to develop a rhythm part for this spacious no-beats track. Then we got the melodic bass line and it all progressed quite rapidly from there. The other big impact was when I tried the Moog guitar, which I’d been kindly given the use of by the Moog Sound Lab UK. First I used it for an other-worldly harmonic pad sound that runs all the way through our mix, and kinda binds our parts to the original sounds, and then I used it for a lead guitar solo in the second half, that uses the infinite sustain." We'll be posting something about the Moog guitar at some point but meanwhile here's a link to the video which is now on Youtube in it's full resolution format.
