Reggae and dancehall music take center stage this week at Mixtape Mondays with some big cuts from Switzerland, NYC and California. Starting to feel like summer is right around the corner… Press play below:
Wildlife!, Dancehall101 Vol. 1: The big homie in Switzerland Wildife! just passed through with another tuff dancehall mix to soundtrack the week ahead. Taking a side step from his certifiably wicked Gold Rush International mixes and in between original releases, this one came together to showcase some of his favorite dancehall tunes of today and tomorrow. Leading off with two undisputed anthems for the upcoming summer (Popcaan’s “Everything Nice” and Kranium’s “Nobody Has to Know“) the rest is straight riddims and singles shelled off like a pro. Stream and download below, tracklist here.
Sammy Needlz, Live On Dancehall Saturday Night Vol. 4: Straight dancehall juggling madness from the one Sammy Needlz at the controls for The Joint on Sirius XM. The ting go way up from start to finish running off the latest and greatest in dancehall, slapping 40 tracks in just under an hour from party tunes to pum pum business to conscious vibes. All brand new joints (recorded in March) and all badd from this NYC veteran. Stream and download below, tracklist here
Green B, Sweet to My Brain: One of the West Coast’s top selectors DJ Green B is back with another stellar mix to add her steadily rising Hot Gyal Promotion series. Green B stays on the up and up with reggae and dancehall music, this volume rinsing all the finest modern one drop, roots and culture singles and riddims to seal up the week. Leading off with one of my top tunes “I’m Living” from Sizzla and Muti Music (the team that brought you “Blessed“), the following is a calm and easy roots mix to sit back and hold a vibe to any time.
