#MixtapeMondays time again. New roots and timeless riddims make their way to the page rounded out with a bit of bashment for good measure. Run the track below

YT x Damalistik, The Lyrical Activist Mixtape: Big combination from UK reggae artist YT and Barcelona-based selector/producer/MC Damalistik from Roots Survival Sound. We’re never mad around here when an artist chooses to voice a mixtape over classic versions from Coxsone Dodd, Sly & Robbie, Dave Kelly, King Jammy’s and others, and YT rides them in fine style for a new age. Lyrics on lyrics paired with nice and easy vibes from start to finish. Stream and download below

Lion Twin, Select by the Dread: New roots mix in rotation from T&T duo Lion Twin who recently blessed us with their wicked Ancient Future mix ‘longside Protoje. Over an hour of brand new roots, culture and one drop riddims and singles peppered with a few dubs and specials as well. Stream and download below, tracklist here

Deejay Theory, Live @ BNM – NYC: Quick live mix from yours truly to round out the week with some bashment. Recorded live and uncut last Thursday night inside Brand New Machine (BNM) in New York City alongside LargeUp family Max Glazer & Kenny Meez (Federation Sound) and DJ Autograph, with top JA roots selector Yaadcore downstairs joining Deadly Dragon Sound. Mostly new dancehall tunes and riddims with a few classics and Theory exclusives. Press play below
