Show tracks for Sat. Feb. 11/12

As Black History month continues, in week 2 we celebrate dub music and it's influence on British indie & alternative music. From the kings of British dub at On-U Sound to the onset of dubstep, it's permeated it's way into British indie music through remixes, dub versions and influencing original compositions. I wish we had more time to feature many more examples but we had lots new indie/alternative releases for you too.
Next week, Northern Soul is front and center. Although most Northern Soul is actually American in origin (mainly based around releases from Tamla/Motown), it certainly spawned a huge scene in the UK. And a handful of British artists took up the mantle and made contributions. In fact, Northern Soul helped give birth to one of the most recognizable British pop culture movements of all time, the Mods.
