Jamaica Special: Chronixx Brings ‘Trouble’ To BBC 1Xtra

Words by Deejay Theory —

chronixx-bbc1xtra

We had to take a moment to digest the serious gwaanings down in Jamaica this past week courtesy of BBC Radio 1/1Xtra and their decent staff of DJs, David Rodigan, Robbo Ranx and Toddla T. BBC isn’t your average radio station and what they were dubbing as the Jamaica Special was definitely nuh normal, broadcasting live performances, live dubplates and real interviews from a dream team in reggae and dancehall including Popcaan, Cham, Jr Gong, Josey Wales, Tarrus Riley, Stylo G, Ward 21, Protoje, Kabaka Pyramid, Jah9, Jah Cure, TOK, Bounty Killer, should I keep going? We recommend an accurate recap of everything right here.

All manners of vibes this week from deranged dubplates to festival forwards to high grade one drop. Dig in below.

Cockney & Yardie: Heatwave’s UK Update, March 2011

Words by Gabriel Heatwave

Smiley Culture 01

First up this month is the tragic news that Smiley Culture, UK dancehall icon and a key inspiration for this column, has died, aged 48. In fact, we’re dedicating the whole of this month’s update to his memory and legacy. The circumstances surrounding his death are somewhat mysterious, with some debate over how his fatal stab wound was inflicted during a police raid on his home just outside London. An investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission is underway and there have been calls for a full public inquiry into his death.
