Summertime vibes are in full effect here at Mixtape Mondays. Hopefully everyone had a good weekend, but it’s time to salute the week ahead with some heavy mixes from the UK, NYC and Germany. Catch a download below.
Hipsters Don’t Dance, All Leftside Everything: Yoo…. biggup to our folks in London at Hipsters Don’t Dance for this one, an all-out tribute to the man of many personas and talents, the mad wizard Mr. Evil aka Leftside. As a producer and artist, Lefty has been pushing the boundaries of dancehall for a minute now, and this mix compiles a solid roundup of his highlights from behind the boards and in the booth combined. From the big tunes that put dude on the map to current hits and remixes, Lefty stays relevant year after year, and with these picks of favorites from the HDD camp, it’s pretty east to see why. Stream below, download here.
Rory T, 2013 Dancehall Mix (Watch Out Fi This): Large new dancehall mix from NYC selector DJ Rory T. Madd selection of 60 minutes of current bashment, mixed up clean and criss with big tunes from Busy Signal, Kartel, Popcaan, Aidonia and many more. If you’re looking for a new dancehall mix to step to on the elliptical, or set the proper vibe before the club look no further. Stream and download below.
Mr Leub, Moombashment Mix Vol. 2: We’ve definitely repped for moombahton and its Caribbean influnece around here, but have yet to feature a cohesive mixtape of its apparent relation to dancehall music here at Mixtape Mondays. On that note, give it up to Frankfurt, Germany’s Mr. Leub of Tropical Bass who’s versed in a thing or two in this department, for delivering this dancehall-meets moombahton explosion. Wicked combination of vibes to turn up your Monday. Stream and download below, tracklist here.
