Words by Deejay Theory
After a brief hiatus your favorite Mixtape column is back to bring you all the goods once again! Being that it’s a holiday and most of us in the states have the day off today, it’s only right we deliver the appropriate soundtrack for your backyard BBQ ting – so fire up the grill and the grabba and let’s get busy!
Supersonic Sound, Owna Lane & General A General: It’s always a good day when the German champion sound Supersonic grace the world with not one, but two outstanding mixes strictly for the people dem. A double dose of all the latest dancehall and reggae, respectively, spanning an hour and change on both. Owna Lane highlights a stack of young guns running Jamaica at the moment, including the 6ixx camp (Squash, Chronic Law, Jahvillani) as well as Quada from Unruly, Teejay and many more. General A General covers much ground in the conscious reggae department, flexing all the usual suspects as well as one drop crooners from bashment stars like Alkaline, Shenseea and Bounty Killer. Another boom shot(s) from Supersonic to light up your week and your earbuds.
Deejay Theory, Guest Mix for Reggae Recipe: Last Sunday yours truly had the pleasure of jumping on the Capital XTRA airwaves in London to join the family Ras Kwame on his mighty #ReggaeRecipe platform once again. Aside from selecting a bagga big tunes that will no doubt run the summer months ahead, I also took the opportunity to preview a heap of brand new exclusive remixes from Busy Signal, Aidonia, Teejay, Madison Beer, Saweetie, Los Rakas & Mr Vegas and more. Peeled straight from the radio so this one is clean throughout and safe fi work.. so play it LOUD!!
Sammy Needlz, Live on Dancehall Saturday Night: Taking things to uncensored satellite radio territory now, the big bredda Sammy Needlz is back in the mix and touching the Dancehall Sattaday Night towers once again on Sirius XM “The Joint”. A man of many talents and genres, Sammy flexes his dancehall, soca and afrobeats muscle on this one rounding out the week with pure niceness and an extra serving of wine. Press play for maximum vibes from one of NYC’s finest selectors.
