Another day, another review, this time with Blend Mishkin‘s wubtacular Mama Proud Riddim and a whole host of MCs showcasing their talents over the top
The riddim itself is a cracker, mixing a dancehall vibe and a dubstep style foundation bothering bassline, complete with gunshots, rave horns, skittering hi-hats and claps, giving plenty of space for the vocals to come. I can see this one being a fixture in Reggae & Bashment DJ’s bags for a while
Those nice gents from Cast-a-Blast have blessed my inbox with yet more promo loveliness, this time from DJ Tzinas which I felt compelled to share with you this morning – raging hangover, or no raging hangover.
Best get the coffee on and hope inspiration strikes ‘eh?
Criss & Shineis a mutant reggae hop swing beat stepper with a lovely bounce and vocals from the self styled “Indian Ragamuffin” Delhi Sultanate representing.
The Blend Mishkin remix drops his trademarked wobble into mix, making the original a more electroesque affair, nudging it closer to a dancehall style, and making it a surefire winner for your ‘warming the crowd’ crate. I can just imagine the winding booties every time I hear this one.
Turntable Dubbers adds an almost Iberian tinge to the track with a Spanish-esque guitar chords to the fore, before a Bollywood string line hits you … clever stuff.
This one drops on the 19th Sept ’11 and is well worth a few of your hard earned shekels.
Thanks to those of you who came down to Timbuk2 on Friday – good news is they loved it and I’m back giving it some red-hot room 2 action on the 12th August whilst Nebula bosh out the DnB in the main room. Excellent.
