Jam Central, It’s a Carnival: Last week our BK bredrin Jam Central dropped an exclusive mix for us to properly welcome Carnival season by juggling some of the soca anthems that will run the road in Toronto (Caribana) UK (Notting Hill) Miami (Broward) NYC (Labor Day) and throughout the Caribbean this year. Strictly energy from a diverse selection of artists. Tracklist and more info here, stream and download below

Chi Ching Ching x Silent Addy, #RESPECTDESHIP: Two of our guys have been busy in the studio and behind the scenes collaborating and building some energetic new movements in dancehall music and culture. I’m talkin about JA entertainer Chi Ching Ching and Miami’s Silent Addy of Eccentrix Sound, the same team that recently voiced a Turn Down for What special that Lil Jon personally made an official release on Columbia… We also caught up with them on the road and in NYC not long ago. Look out for a heap of new electro-dancehall works from the team and peep the latest mixtape below. Tracklist and download here

Ape Drums, Thump Mix: While we’re on the topic of wild new directions in dancehall, it’s critical to include the rapidly bubbling sound of the one Ape Drums. The homie has been making a significant amount of noise lately, and puts his signature crossover sound into this hour-long excursion of his current favorites for Thump. This should add excess amount of energy to your week. Stream the mix below, read the interview on Thump

Cojie from Mighty Crown, Rootikal Warriah Mix: Some crucial and heartical vibes to wrap up the week courtesy of selector Cojie of the forever unstoppable Far East Rulers Mighty Crown Sound. This a phenomenal collection of mostly foundation reggae and dub with some new versions and exclusive specials all thrown into the echo chamber with some custom efx and rare gems.
