Mixtape Mondays: Jesse Royal, So Shifty, Oliver Knight

Words by Deejay Theory —

MM 40

It’s a holiday! Here in San Francisco we’re fresh off two days of liming in the streets for our yearly Carnival in the Mission District. I had the pleasure of DJ’ing this year and am still recovering as we speak… But now a new week is ahead of us and, of course, there’s new mixtapes to share to set the soundtrack for your holiday BBQ, backyard party, taco fiesta, driveway fireworks display, etc. Pull up a chair and grab a plate below…

Mixtape Mondays: Hipsters Don’t Dance, Poirier, Smoke L.E.S

Words by DJ Theory—

As Carnival time approaches in the UK we got some things to get you warm and whining, even if London is hemispheres away. Azonto heat from Ghana, JA dancehall, Trini soca, UK garage, throwbacks and more spice up the thing this week. Catch a vibe below.

Audio: So Shifty Remix Busy Signal’s “Doggystyle”

Words by DJ Theory—

What happens when you combine one of the baddest artists in dancehall with two of the tuffest remixers in Europe? The So Shifty homies are back at it again with the drop of this murderous remix of Busy Signal’s yet-to-be released “Doggystyle,” and this one goes HARD. They simply took the original acapella to build this big room 132 bpm tropical hammer, and once again successfully married club music with dancehall vocals as very few can. Find yourself NOT trying to wheel up the soundcloud player around 0:46 …  On another note, could this perhaps be the return of daggering in the club?? Whatever it is, it gets a full co-sign over here. Stream and download below.

Mixtape Mondays: Federation Sound, J-Boogie, The Heatwave

Words by DJ Theory—

Big week of Mixtape Mondays here, with a monstrous thank you from one of North America’s baddest soundsystems, dub and tropical heat from the Bay, and a pre-carnival warmup straight from the source in London. Get crackin’ and start your week right.

Money Changer: Download DJ Theory x Busy Signal’s “Real Spender$” Refix

Words by Jesse Serwer—

When he’s not holding things down as our Mixtape Mondays columnist, DJ Theory can be found doing some heavyweight mixing of his own, making bigger and bigger moves on the wheels, and in the studio. His latest effort to the latter end is a moombahton-tempo remix of Busy Signal’s Truckback Records release, “Real Spender$,” that brings the original up a few BPMs while still keeping that yard appeal. Call it moombahhall. This one first turned up in the mix on Toddla T’s BBC Radio 1 show the other day, but we’ve got a premiere of the whole thing below. DJs, come get this!
