Streatham! :rolleyes:
Why, I was just looking at the Live and Love discography pages and it talked about the office being in Stoke Newington... there wasn't that much in the way of dodgy second hand motor traders on Streatham Hill, not like on Acre Lane, and certainly not like on Stamford Hill...

... secret tunnels between Hackney and Brixton innit...

Big big thanks for this mix. Its revived my passion for reggae. Somewhat questioned my love of all things Jamaican when had the piss taken out of me repeatedly by my Jamaican boss. But it's the UK connection, seen...

Lyric Maker mix should be back up on 1st April.

Seems like the bandwidth cost to get it back up this month will be a bit excessive for a week.

DJL mix will be back at the same time, probably zipped.

Bashment mix is sounding fine, probably be up for Beltane. More fire!
