Dedy Dread & DJ Rebel ft. Delhi Sultanate / Criss & Shine
I don’t know what’s going on at the moment, but there’s a serious pile of seriously good releases piling up in my inbox, that I feel the urge to share with you crazy kids.
Today it’s the latest offering from the guys at Cast-a-Blast records dropping their latest chunk of reggae-hop stylings from Dedy Dread & DJ Rebel.
Criss & Shine is 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.
