Words by DJ Arems


This week we get ready for Crop Over with some Bajan soca, head to Italy for a big dancehall collabo mix, and hear brand new sound waves from one of our good friends in New York City. All that mid-summer heat you’ve been looking for is on deck so dive right in to these selections:

DJ Puffy, Barbados Crop Over 2016 Soca Sampler: Festivities in Barbados for this year’s Crop Over have been under way since June with everything gearing up for the final celebration on Kadooment Day on August 1st. The traditional harvest festival of Barbados closely mirrors Trinidad’s Carnival but it’s clear that Trinidad isn’t the only source for great soca, as Barbados has been pumping out soca heavyweights like Lil Rick, Peter Ram, Fadda Fox and Leadpipe & Saddis for years now. To celebrate Crop Over 2016, DJ Puffy has compiled the biggest chunes from the island’s huge talent pool for this high power, non-stop soca mix. Everything you need to get ready for Crop Over is right here. Stream and download below:

Wildcat Sound X Cashflow Rinse, Summer Formula: Italy’s Wildcat Sound have teamed up with Jamaica’s Cashflow Rinse for this brand new mix featuring the latest dancehall heaters to get you sweating this summer. Sprinkled with dubplates from both sounds and littered with huge artists like Vybz Kartel, Alkaline, Charly Black and Popcaan, Summer Formula has all the ingredients to wet your dancehall appetite and get those gun fingahs in ah di air.

After teaming with Safari Sound back in May, Autograph is back with another episode of Safari Sound Waves featuring brand-new reggae and dancehall from artists like Jahmiel, Bounty Killer, Shaggy and Popcaan to name just a few. With fresh-off-the-press heat mixed in with some certified bangers, Episode 2 does not disappoint. Stream below:
