INTO THE DANCEHALL
Its been a mintue since we had an update so get ready for a big one, were going into the dancehall.
Im off this Friday to Calgary to rinse out the "Dubsided Selection" Party. The jam is pretty self explanatory, everyone is playing sets comprised of all things influenced by dancehall,reggae, and dub.
Anyone that knows me knows my in depth love affair with these genres. There is something about reggae and dancehall that move my soul unlike any other music. So in the spirit of this jam coming up below check out some of my fav bits from the reggae / dancehall world as of late.
MP3 - MAVADO - "Nuh Bleach Wid Cream"
MP3 - VYBZ KARTEL - "Tightest Punani"
MP3 - SOUTH RAKKAS CREW feat. KID FOREIGNA & BIGGA BOSS - "Hotter Then Dem"
MP3 - TONY MATTERHORN - "Tour Guide"
MP3 - GYPTIAN - "Too Late"
Here are a few videos from the "green screen" with the man TONY BONE on the riddim. All acoustic versions of some big tunes!
First and foremost
RICHIE SPICE "Brown Skin"
PERFECT "Grow Yah Natty"
COLLIE BUDDZ "Come Around"
