Raggakings Reggae Dancehall RadioVibes Promotion with DrmZ

For the first show of the new year we go back to the early 90s when hip hop and dancehall were much closer together.

One producer who defined what we call mash ups now is Bobby Konders with his label Massive B.
He released numerous dancehall artists like Burro Banton, Mad Lion, Yankee B or Louie Rankin on hip hop beats and did remixes.

Scince I started deejaying hip hop before I got interested in reggae and dancehall: his productions were my first contact to modern jamaican music.
We called it ragga back then ;)

And off course dancehall artists like Super Cat, Junior Reid and Barrington Levy were prominently featured by rap artists like Wu Tang, The Game, Mobb Deep, Smiff’N’Wessun, Kriss Kross, Special Ed, Poor Righteous Teachers or Guru’s Jazzmatazz.

Enjoy!

Raggakings Reggae Dancehall RadioVibes Promotion with DRMZ

We start this show relaxed and dubby with recent releases on Echo Beach.

Tunes from Dub Syndicate’s “Hard Food” LP, RSD’s “Mixwork In Dub” LP and the “King Size Dub Special” selected by Dubvisionist. Dubvisionist also provided us with the new 16 Tons Riddim, the second release on his label 11-7 Records. His first release on this label – the Step-A Riddim –  with a huge Warrior King stepper we already played on January 23rd’s show. Check it, big tune!

This time Bionic Clarke, Chanter and Ras Milo are on the microphone. The M7 Allstars play a classic stepper riddim and Dubvisonist ist on the controls.

 
The second part is all about Reggae from France. Tribuman released his new LP “Digital Raggamuffin” this week. The album ranges from digital reggae and early dancehall riddims to more modern sounds like on his track “Wha Gwaan 2.0” produced by Chris Val. Tribuman is a well established trumpet player, too. Represented here on the dub tune “District 12” produced by Jahtari. And on “Longtime Ready” our friend Longfingah visits for a big combination tune – my favourite track an this release. They have a great dynamic together: on stage and in the studio!
To round up the selection we play many french reggae classics from artists like Admiral T, Daddy Mory, Tairo, Sael and other.

Enjoy!

Raggakings Reggae Dancehall RadioVibes Promotion with DRMZ

Loyal followers of this program already know that I have a weak spot for tracks between Hip Hop and Dancehall.

It’s certainly not my first show featuring Raggamuffin Hip Hop and Mash-Ups. So for a change I start this one with Rap and Raggamuffin from France. Many thanks to Tribuman for showing me some killa tunes!
Well known artists like Admiral T, Suprême NTM, Lord Kossity or Big Red of Raggasonic alongside gems from Kenyon, Reimo, Tairo and Poopa Tribuman himself.

Off course I play some US and UK Hip Hop, too. The great Deadly Hunta, Tek of Smith’n’Wessun, Rodney P, Dub Pistols, Mike Zoot and many more. The last 30 minutes are dedicated to the Oldschool of Raggamuffin Hip Hop. Early 90s tracks from Main Source, Jamal-Ski, Shinehead, Mad Lion, Redhead Kinpin…

Unfortunately sometimes during the recording the left stereo channel drops out for a few seconds. It seems that one of the cables of my Technics is broken. I could not do much during the show scince its all live but I hope to get it fixed till next time. Sorry for that!

I hope you still enjoy the show!
