Another Monday, another selection of great new mixes for your fulljoyment. This week we have a little bit of everything: a mix of great mashups & blends, a mix with some of the freshest sounds straight from JA, and finally, a dub-heavy live mix of strictly original material.
Bluntskull, Straight Raggamuffin Hip Hop Mixtape Vol. 6: This one from Bluntskull reminds me of the mid to early ’90s in all the best ways possible – back when all good hip-hop albums had some dancehall elements, and most dancehall hits had a hip-hop remix available. Just under one hour of incredible exclusive mashups & blends, mostly with dancehall lyrics over classic hip-hop beats and nuff dubplates. No autotune. Champion Sound.
DJ Sensilover, Tuff Summer, Dancehall Live Mixtape 2018: Sensilover & Irie Soldiers hail outta Italy – yet they bring some of the latest dancehall hits straight from Jamaica. Tuff Summer features all the biggest artists for 2018 – Beenie, Bounty, and Busy. Alkaline, Popcaan, and Vybz. Gal a say di ting tuff! Worldwide ting dis. Stream below.
Green Lion Crew, Mr. Williamz Meets Green Lion Crew: I’m a big fan of UK artist Mr Williamz. This newish mix out from his extended Green Lion Crew family features Williamz chatting & singing over a live dub mix from Zeke / Green Lion, recorded live in the dance earlier this year. An impressive performance all round recorded in Sebastopol in Northern Cali. Herbsman, all over town, you’re rocking with the high grade sound. Highly recommended.
