Welcome to our weekly Oscars of mixtape culture: Three nominees, three winners and one category: sound editing!
Stone Love Movement, Top Ah Top Buju Banton mix (via Cutlass & Cane): Arguably the number one ranking dancehall soundsystem of all time (any dissenters?) the immortal Stone Love Movement is showing their solidarity with Grammy-winning, sentence-receiving once and future King of Dancehall Buju Banton with this new-brand mix. Basically a best-of but made exclusive by the arsenal of Buju dubs in the Stone Love vault. Download it here.
SoulForce, Stereo DJ Mix (via Seen): Seen put us up on this excellent new mix with plenty of exclusive productions, German-language chats and straight dancehall in a Rum & Redbull vein. Get the mix and tracklisting here, or stream and enter to get free copies (and other swag) here
Heatwave, Rinse FM mix Feb 2011 (via Heatwave) Our UK brethren posted their latest Rinse FM session including a new Busta on the Rum & Redbull riddim, brand new Vybz Kartel joints and more. Download here (and cop the new Vybz/Gaza project “Empire Universe” here).
