Product Description

2021 reissue, originally released in 1993 on No Noise Recordings - another essential early jungle/hardcore reissue!

The Dubster is an alias of drum and bass legend L Double. Released originally in 1993 on Edzy (Unique 3) label No Noise.

This EP has been a highly collectable bit of vinyl for many years and a tricky one to hunt down. It captures the vibe of the era from the Huddersfield area of the UK. As Lee Double explains:

“The ‘Lighter Shades Of Dark’ EP was started at the RAID studios in Huddersfield. But during the making of the EP I moved to my studio to Bradford as I had started a distribution company called Wax Works which was based in Bradford. I did the distro in the day and worked at night on music. We did 1000 units and they all sold. I use to swap spare stock and whites labels with DJ SS too. I would take what he had and then I would put them into my distribution company and help sell them for him. I covered all around Yorkshire, down to Nottingham, but I also drove up to the borders of Scotland, visiting all the record shops, leaving records with them on sale or return. We were seriously spreading the word, looking back we were running things up here!”
