This one goes out to Table Manners Crew and the Get Right Kids.
It’s a blend of production touches, over my re-edit of Axel Foley by Harold Faltermeyer, topped with DJ Zeph’s Floor Wax featuring Rashaad Amhad.
Many djs have reworked this tune, but I think Ahmad’s lyrics are a perfect contextual fit.
Enjoy.

Now you know I love 1990s dancehall as much as the next.  But I am all about the newest riddims coming out of Jamaica.

The ‘Jim Screechie Riddim’ is one of my favs right now.  I’ve mixed some of the choice cuts from the riddim in a dj mix.  No airhorn or FX junk on this mix.  Just a clean, fun riddim mix.

This goes out specially to my man PSR from Green Hat.

UNKLE is back, anyone remember Mo’ Wax and ‘ Headz?’

Fiasco is swift with the verbal static on this one.  Headphone Hip Hop.  Refreshing.

This track is available at Amazon:  http://www.amazon.com/Runaway-Lupes-Revenge-Fiasco-Reconstruction/dp/B0041TRHBG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1285894103&sr=1-1

I’ll be posting some of my favorite Dancehall tracks over the next few weeks, so keep checking in.

This track has lit up plenty a dance floor full of ladies. Buffy is a female toaster. The moral of her lyric: Girls stay clean.

Enjoy.

Y’All know I’m a Dancehall fanatic.  Seriously, I can’t get enough.  Rhythmically they are miles ahead of the U.S. right now.  But this track has that classic 90’s sound that people associate with Dancehall.  Straight up, feel good.  Dancehall.  It’s on the Landscape Riddim.

You can’t pick this one up at Amazon…

Usually when you drop a NYC style basement joint like this one; you expect to get that ‘it’s sooo good grimace’ from the folks on the dance floor. This production is a little different though. The vocal sample is so juxtaposed so nicely over the hard beat. People just look intense and bop heavy.

As they said ‘Iknoow you gonna dig this.’
