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)

Sick Beats (To Cure The Flu)

Came down with a nasty bug this week. Might be connected to my overwhelming disgust at the Zimmerman not guilty verdict, but this ain’t a politics blog, so I’ll spare you my rant. Instead, I’ve decided to share with you this heavy dose of new heaters in between consecutive nose blowing fits and coughing convulsions. Lots of latin & global bass tunes in the playlist, also partly inspired by the fun-as-hell Tormenta Tropical party that I did last Friday alongside DJ Theory, Oro11 & Paul Devro. Gotta keep my energy up for 4 more consecutive nights of DJ-ing this week, so hopefully these joints will keep me on my feet… If you want to see more bizarre pics of insanely groomed dogs, check out the spread by Ren Netherland up now at Juxtapoz.

Thornato :       Gaita Gaita
serious anthem alert from my NYC homie Thor. Check out the full compilation on ZZK where this tune can be found.

Ondatropica :       El Caiman Y El Gallinazo (Atropolis Remix)
dopeness runs in the blood, ’cause this one from Atropolis (Thor’s cousin and Cumba Mela compatriot) is also seriously fiya

So Shifty :       Rude Gal (ft. Paco Mendoza) &       Rumba (Peligrosa Remix)
I’m loving these guys‘ productions and am very much looking forward to an album in the future…

Los Cojolites :       Luna Negra (Uproot Andy Remix)
Kabaka International :       Mangala Special (Uproot Andy Remix)
from another of my NY friends (and Que Bajo co-founder), Andy murked this whole worldwide mix. Cop the EP for FREEEEE

Novalima :       Diablo (Xacosa Remix) &       Mamaye (Seiji Remix)
taken from this dope new EP on Wonderwheel. Get it.

Octa Push :       Afroinscope &       Ali Dom ft. Braima Galissa
big shouts to DJ Nadi for puttin me on to this one. Very influenced by SBTRKT, but I ain’t mad at that one bit.

Clap! Clap! :       Hold On (ft. LSWR)
&       Please Mother Rain Wash Our Souls From Human Evil
thanks due to Soundbwoy Surian for the heads up on this guy.

Elvis Crespo :       Suavemente (Kennedy Jones Trap Remix)
certified dancefloor destroyer, you have been warned.

B.Lewis & Sango      Não é Nada
Brazilian electro trap monster

L D R U :       The Tropics
space music right here. This one makes me go dumb every time.
