Hopefully all our peoples in the states had a good holiday weekend and are ready to get back in the zone. There’s a good chance these mixes can help you dig into your work week while continuing to give thanks and bruk it down. Go in below

Blessed Coast Sound, Shining Hope: Our folks up in Bellingham, WA have a brand new roots mix for you this week. Blessed Coast Soundย stay on the toppa top of reggae and dancehall music, fluidly working with various artists from their own camp and affiliateย Dynasty Records family next door in Seattle. For this round they take a page from good friend Gappy Ranksย and direct their focus on straight roots music with the “Shining Hope” mix, spanning over an hour of brand new one drop & culture essentials. Stream and download below, tracklist here

DJ Rampage, Pushing The Envelope: The big man DJ Rampage from Rampage Sound Globalย hit us with this mix a little bit ago, and amidst all the business with the Red Fox party and having him hold us down at The LargeUp Sessions on Radio Lily, it managed to slip through the cracks. Hailing from Belize and living in NYC, Rampage has a broad range of influences when it comes to music, and for this he dips into some other directions throwing some house, pop, dancehall and of course some punta into the recipe. Grab it below or right here

Upsetta International, Wickedest Position: Stumbled on this new dancehall mix from an old friend and champion selector Dubee from veteran soundsystem Upsetta International. With a long history in murdering dances, mixtapes and more recently original production via their Upsetta Records imprint, Dubee keeps the ting in motion with this NSFW bruk out mix of dancehall hitters from current anthems and b-sides to some 2012 favorites. This should help get your motor running while trying to werk off some of those leftovers… Stream and download below
