Words by Deejay Theory —
Wake the town and tell the people … another big week of Mixtape Mondays is at hand with a rare and major session from the controls at Radio Lily, plus one drop from SF and a sanctified time capsule from sound systems past. Haul and pull up pon a Monday.
Major Lazer, Major Lazer on The LargeUp Sessions: Where do Major Lazer head straight after their set on the Jimmy Fallon show in NYC? Miss Lily’s Variety of course to link with our own DJ Gravy to bless the LargeUp Sessions live on RadioLily.com. The Trini homie Jillionaire was the invited guest on the show, bringing a guest set with the usual gap-bridging blend of soca, dancehall and all manner of tropical badness, but our folks Walshy Fire and Diplo had to pass through as well just to make the ting official. Definitely a memorable and extra turned up early evening with the team on Houston St. Peep the evidence of the occasion here, stream and download the full live recording below:
DJ Green B, Hot Gyal Promotion Vol. 5.2: Bay Area bad gyal Green B is back with another tape full a vibes, straight one drop for this round of her Hot Gyal Promotion series. Kicking things off with an exclusive from Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor of one of the baddest tunes right now, she moves into a steady selection of good reggae music in the vein of the title track from young budding artist Torch on German producers Silly Walks’ incredible Honey Pot Riddim. Much more vibes to be had on this one to get your week moving forward. Stream and download below, tracklist here.
Killamanjaro, Remembers Garnett Silk: Sometimes we need to share a timeless piece of history, and what really needs to be said here? Blistering specials from start to finish peeled from the iconic vaults of Killamanjaro and the conscious everlasting voice of Garnett Silk, along with top cameos from some of your favorites in their youth. The original of this tribute was released by Revue and ‘Jaro in 1999, a raw contribution of strictly dubplates and culture that made its way onto record store shelves alongside studio albums. Some of you likely owned the CD (or cassette) but who can say where that tape is now? Take it back with a digital version here or stream below.
