Ease into the weekend with two hours of expertly selected dub and reggae, recorded at sunrise in the ambient tent at Nachtdigital.

Nachtdigital prides itself on its varied music policy, and nowhere is this more on show than at the Ambient Stage. Drop into this cosy den anytime from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon and you could hear anything from Celtic drone and rock’n’roll to Madonna and Aphex Twin. On Sunday morning, between 6 and 8 AM, Scott Monteith, AKA Deadbeat, did what what few DJs do in there and performed standing up, dolling out dub and roots reggae to a tangle of horizontal bodies and tatty furniture. He was a picture of happiness, rocking along to the likes of Culture’s “Two Sevens Clash” and King Jammy Meets Dry & Heavy’s “In The Jaws Of The Tiger” while singing every word. Lively puts it too strong, but it was the cheeriest I saw the place all weekend. As if to see how far he could turn up the atmosphere, Monteith ended on an all-time classic—Max Romeo’s “Chase The Devil”—and basked in the heavy applause.
