Brother Blue, the deep dub techno side of Tim Gray (aka Ethernet, Tanuki House) returns to Recycled Plastics with a lush hour-long live recording of his set in Portland on June 24, 2016, at Moonchild's Odyssey space. This lovely recording came to us mastered by the man himself, with the intent to have it issued freely on the Summer Solstice. Crafted masterfully with Gray's live hardware rig, which consisted of his Elektron Analog Rytm, MFB-522 and DSI Tetra in conjunction with several FX units and a cassette Walkman prepped with what Gray describes as "cosmic hiss." Enjoy this grooving walk through a PDX dub haze, on the advent of Summer - this one's on us.

Rather than answering why do I love this album, I am gonna offer another question. Why don't you own it already? This is Dub Techno for the connoisseur. This is a piece of class music. I see it as a tribute to the bootlegs from back when vinyl was all there was. Ahh, times do change. Go ahead and download it, the music's boss. Bethelina_DJ
