Words by Deejay Theory —
With summer officially at our doorstep it’s as good a time as any to continue digging into soundtracks from every corner. Warming things up this week with sessions from Germany, California, Switzerland and right back to Jamaica. Swing through below.
Jugglerz, Jugglerz Dancehall Mixes Vol.IV: The boom summer mixtape from Shotta Paul and Meska a.k.a Jugglerz via their headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany. Straight and centered one drop and culture from beginning to end to satisfy your week ahead from some shining stars and young talent. Jugglerz were recently recognized for their wicked original throwback riddim “Penthouse” that spawned the title of the mix, courtesy of the big single from Beenie Man. Definitely throw this one on now for good vibes. Stream below, download here, tracklist here.
Deejay Theory, NNMF Mix 2014: Round two of the NNMF summer series from yours truly to kick off the second-annual Northern Nights Music Festival in Northern California this July 18-20. The first volume set a nice tone last year that I tried to maintain while also navigating some other ground in the tropical, bass, reggae, house and general vibes department. A handful of exclusives and original edits on there as well to nice up the ting, recorded and inspired while recently on tour in Southeast Asia. Hopefully you can bump the mix this summer wherever you are. Stream and download below, tracklist here.
