Review: Fresh dancehall? What's not to love as we welcome an all star cast to Raider for the second edition of 'Dancehall DigITAL', a super forward thinking compilation showcasing the best in new school reggae and bashment. We kick this one off with a look at Danny T & Tradesman's high energy collaboration with 'Here I Am', which features catchy vocal lines from Dark Angel, before King Toppa gives a serious digidub relick to G Duppy and Peppery's 'Happy'. Next up, Interrupt joins forces with Tenor Youthman on the nostalgic masterpiece named 'Murderer', chased up by the bashment vibes of 'Kill Dem Already' from Mowty Mahlyka and King Toppa'. We then finish up with the mastery of Shaolin Digital teaming up with Dusty Wata on super swingy 'Rumours & Inequity'. Excellent work from start to finish!
Review: Here they are at it again, fusing, twisting and sampling all the hits, obscurities and bangers you've come to love over the years; be they hip hop, electro, pop, funk or rock. Notorious BIG makes an appearance on this compilations opener while JLO vocals and dirty electro can be found on "Get Right". Scale down the tracklist and you'll come across J5, old school funk and flutes to The Champs - Tequila!
Review: There's no denying Funk Fusion definitely live up to their name; take these first two tracks which sample and flip Kool & The Gang and Tribe Called Quest numbers into something new and different for 2015. There's also a cheeky garage remake of Basement Jaxx, and for something slower check out the hip hop throw down of Aretha Franklin's "Say A little Prayer For You" by KMT. And have you heard Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" pitched against Sean Paul lyrics? Well you have now. Something for everyone.
