As sure as the sun may shine, #MixtapeMondays is back with more heat showing signs that Spring soon come. Dig into some new dancehall, UK settings and essential one drop via this week’s mixes below.
ZJ Liquid, Ruppinz Mixtape: Leading things off this week is some pure and undiluted bashment straight from the source care of Jamaica’s own Zip FM selector, producer and all-around don ZJ Liquid. Always leading the pack with new and exclusive riddims and breakout tunes coming in hot from the island, when ZJ drops a dancehall tape you can always be certain of two things – excess amount of Kartel and brand new music and trends. Let’s see those Monday gun fingers up. Stream and download below.
Smutlee, Mix for Radar Radio 2/20: The UK is one of those musical climates where you can get away with so much as a DJ it’s almost unfair to those of us in the States. London badman Smutlee is known for flexing that trademark diversity all over his mixes, with the latest excursion for LDN’s Radar Radio as a prime example with custom remixes mingling comfortably with dancehall, grime, hip-hop and plenty more. An easy rinse for the week. Stream and download below, tracklist here
DJ CeeJay, Soul Provider Vol.3: Helsinki’s DJ CeeJay returns with volume 3 of his Soul Provider one drop and culture series to ease out the program. Bussing some of the current reggae scorchers making the rounds like “Stylin“, “Shotta” “Capture Land” and even one from this guy, CeeJay brings the vibes and selection as always to nice up the week.
