Jamaica Has A Bobsled Team


What better time to take a Caribbean vacation than the middle of January? While blizzards and sub-zero temperatures sweep half the country, I know all my East Coast friends and fam are doing their best to keep from freezing their keisters off. Consider this post my offering to those who can’t afford the time off work, or plane ticket to Jamaica- a nice heavy heap of dancehall, reggae, soca and other sun-soaked sounds that can (at least mentally) help you feel closer to the equator. One time for anyone out there who also had the Cool Runnings soundtrack on cassette tape as a kid!

P-Money & Gappy Ranks :       Baddest

QQ :       One Drop very heavy Major Lazer production

Uproot Andy :       Worldwide Dembow ft. Pablo Piddy another winner from Señor Andy, taken from a great new collection celebrating 6 years of Dutty Artz

The Rub :       Dutty Gyal ft. Natalie Storm (Smalltown DJ's Remix) heavy moombah remix by this highly reputable Canadian DJ crew

Wax Wreckaz :       High Grade ft. Million Stylez

Machel Montano :       Doh Mind the reigning Soca king hits again

Marcus Visionary :       St Vincent deep, electronic Soca sounds from this D&B producer/DJ

Self Help :       Get Bent the homie from the mid-west comes correct on this cuica-trap banger

M.I.A. :       Double Bubble Trouble going haaaaard on this reggae-trap monster

Konshens :       Rasta Imposter (Remix ft. Tarrus Riley all-star line-up, gotta love the phone call in the middle…

Lady :       Get Ready (Ticklah Remix) new classic from the always on-point Ticklah. Get your mitt’s on the 7″ here.

Andre Tanker :       River Come Down and a rare vintage Trini-funk gem that took me waaaaay too long to hunt down (after hearing it on Brooklyn pirate radio back in 2005)

Deep In Concentration

Quick injection of mid-week beats for all you fiends in need. Some grimey sounds, some smoothed out bizniz, and a touch of make-you-feel-good-and-kiss-the-sky type ish. Never studied music in school, but if I did, I would want to be in a class like this. Shouts to DJ Cato, DJ AC, & BadKiss for some of today’s tunes- where would I be without my friends?!?

The Rub (ft. Lil Fame & Misun) :       Feel You (Marco Polo Remix) DJ Ayres & DJ Eleven (aka these guys) have thrown their monthly Brooklyn bash for years now. This party was definitely a major inspiration for my own Planet Rock jump off here in LA, and now they’re finally making music together which reflects the diverse mix of hip hop, electronic & soul sounds that they’re known for spinning. This makes me happy.

Misun :       Sharpshooter discovered this singer from the song above, there’s more where this came from… check it

Malinchak :       Beside Me on the smoothed out 90’s tip

RAC :       Hollywood (ft. Penguin Prison) first original tune by remix meistro RAC?!? Leave it to ole crafty Mountain Dew to make it happen

The Dream :       Loving You Crazy the prodigal son of R&B, the wandering mystical crooner/producer who says whatever he damn well feels and manages to make it sound good. Yeah, good new tune from that dude.

Classixx (ft. Nancy Whang) :       All You're Waiting For (Switch Remix) so glad to hear this spacey synthed-out nu-disco take on this tune. It sounds like Switch doing his version of Todd Terje.

Daft Punk :       Lose Yourself To Dance (Simøne Remix) because it’s hard to play the original and not be played out, and because this just works.

Sharam Jey :       Gonna Get You (w/ Night Talk) &       Over Me (w/ Tapesh) hauws muzik. late night dirty dancing is bound to ensue when this comes on.

Visti & Meyland :


@https://mixtaperiot.com/wp/wp-content/media/YesMaamRemix.mp3″ volslider=”n” flow=”y” ind=”y”]funky old Southern folk sample meets future gypsy electronic glitch-house. I dig.

David West & Ida Engberg :       Abataka having a crappy day? slow morning? Step in dog poop? Put this one on and watch the big red african sunrise melt away all your petty problems.

    All good, some better than others for me, with Misun, Sharam Jey, Visti & Meyland and David West & Ida Endberg being top of the pile….makes me want to stand in dog poop. Fuckin fantastic tune. It’s on a comp called ‘It Began In Africa’ on Kitball Records, which I’m going to check out right now.

    I think you should change your last comment in the first paragraph, to where would we be without your friends…they regularly dig up some gems
