Review: Shy FX is set to drop a remix album of music from his outstanding Raggamuffin SoundTape, and with a couple already on the shelves from The Sauce, Potential Badboy and Skeptical, this time around its the turn of Bou. He steps up for a wobbling, bass heavy endeavour which blends sunshine sampling and funk-based devastation for a hands-in-the-air, day party of a drum & bass banger. Imagine Notting Hill Carnival embodied in a track and you'll pretty much be there.
Review: What we have here is a fantastic selection and representation of the future of reggae music worldwide as the Nice Up! team unveil the fifth edition of 'Nice Up! The Session'. The release features some pretty top draw names, including the likes of Parly B, Gardna, Seanie T, Gappy Ranks and more. From the junglist flavours of Fleck's 'One Step At A Time' rethink, to the future dancehall delights of 'Bad Mi Bad' from XL Mad & Gappy Ranks, we witness the full breadth of reggae's development in 2019, with other favourites including DJ Madd's crispy rethink 'Chasing Dreams' from Rider Shafique & Precha, along with Folding City's experimental overhaul of 'My Yout' from 'Origin One & Irah'. Excellent stuff!
