38 (chest), 44 (beer belly), 32 (waist), 27 (inner leg). These are the vital statistics of Charlie McCann aka The Man Who Cann, long serving member of the Electric Eliminators, resident at Fortified Sessions and purveyor of Bass musics since long before straight-peeked caps were ever considered a good look. Regularly teaming up with Barry Burns for warm-up duties at Fortified, they have been known to occasionally blow the nights more esteemed guests out of the water with their heavy duty vintage-to-modern Dub rinse outs, and nobodies paying them 800 quid a gig.
For this exclusive mix, Charlie has delivered a Samson-strong selection of champion Dub that will appease the hungers of seasoned enthusiasts, as well as appeal to those not so familiar with the ultra-obscurities the genre has to offer.
This is genuinely one of the best Dub mixes we’ve heard in a very long time, and in the tradition of going against the grain, is served to you by a whiteboy with a very smart haircut.
