    Hi all, hopefully this will be the first of many posts here.

    I've been browsing stuff on Chemical Records and stumbled across a label called Lion Dub Recordings. A brief Google search throws up very little information and it seems they only released a few records - 5 that I can find - and none since 2007. I love what I've heard; does anybody know anything about them or where I can get hold of the records in the UK? I will, of course, add them to my wishlist on CR.

    Also, if anybody is willing to give them a listen on CR and recommend similar stuff I'd be very grateful. Thank you!

    Found a couple in the marketplace there - thanks! Such a shame that they only released five records. Will purchase a few as long as I can find similar stuff elsewhere.

    Will do so very shortly! Building a profile on discogs.com as well. Only just started DJing vinyl; this is gonna take up soooo much time!

    edit: didn't realise I just bought something on Digital Soundboy. Ra! by Shy FX and T Power. Turn Down The Lights is one hell of a tune as well. And the dub mix of Smile (Lily Allen). I need more money........

    Ragga-ish, more of a reggae flavour to be honest. Ragga always makes me think of more aggressive music.

    I didn't like what I heard of Tester last night but will check the others out now. Cheers.

    edit: given Tester another listen, it's good but far too aggressive to listen to more than a couple at once.
    edit2: can't find anything by R.A.W. Human.

    Tanya Stephens vs Ray Keith - It's a Pity (Dub Mix)

    What a tune! Sorry if this thread is a bit too self-indulgent but I am very new to this and discovering a lot of good music.
