The Big Up Productions films, especially the Dosage series are world-class climbing films and the soundtracks are something special too.
Big Up writes, "We're in the midst of a King Lines editing frenzy, yet with all the requests we get for info about music for the Dosage videos, we decided to finally update the music section at Big UP. So cruise on over to the main site and check out the newly added Dosage 3 and 4 soundtracks. Not only can you stream samples of every song, but we made 12 of the tracks available for download. Enjoy the tunes!"
Go here: www.bigupproductions.com, then click on Music and you can listen and download MP3 files. I've got all 12 and they make a great music mix.
