Words by Jesse Serwer
Fall has officially set in here in NYC. Trees are going brown, snorkels are being worn and summer is sinking deeper into the rearview mirror of a vehicle headed for an inevitable collision with the cold abyss of winter. If you’re like us, you’re attempting all sorts of Jedi mindtricks to try and make it otherwise. Here’s one more: Our own DJ Gravy has blessed us with Forever Summer, a mixtape full of the beachiest, most fall-defying reggae and dancehall tunes (“Hold Yuh,” etc.) from recent months. In Gravy’s own words, “This CD will truly help you get your groove on, keep you warm and relaxed like you’re on a tropical vacation… Winter blows!”
And, while we’re on the subject of mixtapes, here’s a few more that have crossed our desks recently:
WALSHY FIRE-RIDDIM STREAM DANCEHALL MIX #1
BUSY SIGNAL, DJ KHALED & DJ KARIM-MY WAY
Busy teams up with the always-abrasive DJ Khaled, and freestyles over recent R&B and rap hits with a few signature tunes mixed in.
