Suns of Dub x Mighty Crown, Far East Mixtape: This very large and unique collaboration needs very little intro.

This 40 Track fusion of Dub, Reggae, Roots, Dancehall, Drum & Bass, EDM, Rockers, Hip Hop & more is a fitting follow up to 2013’s Major Lazer x Suns of Dub Mixtape. Madd vibes throughout.
