Big reggae vibes on deck this week at Mixtape Mondays, with a full plate of roots and a heavy collection of dubplates on the table. Grab a slice below.
LargeUp Premiere: DJ Rampage, Inna Di Gideon: The man like DJ Rampage is back with another heavy dose of undiluted roots rock reggae music from his Rampage Sound Global camp. Bursting at the seams with two hours of brand new culture and one drop, Inna Di Gideon continues the movements from home base in Brooklyn to Belize to Japan to Africa and back again with a selection of modern reggae royalty and lesser-known singers alike. If you’re seeking some new roots this week, this one should be a nice and easy pick. Stream and download below, tracklist here.
Bud E Green, Ganja Phenomenon Dubplate Mix: Madd new dubplate mix from our dupes the “international ganja phenomenon” Mr. Bud E Green out in Boston. Bud E just dropped this off to showcase and select some of the specials collected in the box over the years, from veterans and foundation artists to current and rising stars. Aside from some wicked dubs, what sets this apart from a lot of other dubplate mixes is the absence of sound efx, pull ups and long talking. Just a nonstop reggae mix, mixed live on two turntables with no funny business. Stream and download below, tracklist here.
Poison Dart, Dubology 2014 Old Time Something Come Back Again: Box! Keeping with the dubplates this week, we had to reel off this strictly exclusives mix from the big bad Kirky C and Poison Dart Sound. Soundsystem and clash fans are no doubt familiar with Poison Dart repping Tampa and Antigua but, familiar or not, this tape is simply murder if you rate dancehall music and history.
