shocks of mighty mix

this started as an attempt to tie in (loosely) to this thread- the idea being to create a reggae mix featuring only songs from compilations recommended by dissensians- but i, as always, became sidetracked and its nature changed.

so now this is a mix where all the songs, if not always from the pressure sounds / blood &fire / auralux / trojan camps, are available (apart from two). none of your exclusives and only one 7". i’ve included links so you can get them too, which of course you should- every home needs them.

it also gave me the opportunity to shoehorn in the ‘invasion’ rhythm mix i did before christmas (slightly edited- a touch of homophobia went unnoticed first time round), partly because i don’t generally like single rhythm mixes and partly because john eden made me feel stupid for not including the original ‘oh mr dc’ cut on the mix to start with.
