“14 Tracks : Steve Barker's Dubwise assault”

Steve Barker is one of the UK's leading authorities on dub/reggae and has been hosting and curating the hugely influential 'On The Wire' radio show for BBC Radio Lancashire since 1984. The show's eclectic mix of styles and groundbreaking programming has led many to compare Barker with the late John Peel and a quick look over at Wikipedia tells us that 'On the Wire' was one of the first shows in the UK to play hip-hop, house music and techno music. It gave the first radio plays in the UK for Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson and the radio premier of 808 State's "Pacific State" and A Guy Called Gerald's "Voodoo Ray". Now based largely in Beijing, Barker continues to curate the Radio Show from China, as well as contributing to The Wire magazine, taking charge of the Dub reviews section among many other things. If you've never heard his amazing radio show before head to www.onthewire.uk.com for a real treat, but before you do check out this mighty 14 Track dubwise selection, picked by the man himself in Beijing last week and delivered to you here with maximum respect and admiration for one of the key champions of dub music over the last 25 years. Get educated!

Take part! Leave a comment!

What do you think of this selection?
Any suggestions?
All comments are warmly welcomed.
