Words by The Heatwave—
It’s been a minute since we’ve gotten a report from our UK correspondents The Heatwave. Gabriel, Benjamin D. and company been busy having their biggest year ever, making monster mixtapes (like this week’s armagideon-anticipating Last Party on Earth) and refixes, and bringing their Hot Wuk party all across Europe. This was a massive year for reggae and dancehall in England, though, what with all of the major events in London surrounding Jamaica 50 and the Summer Olympics, and the continued emergence of Stylo G and Gappy Ranks, so we had to get the Heatwave on the case for a year-end Cockney & Yardie wrap-up.
