Roll Deep’s Riko Dan is back with ‘Phone Call’, from his upcoming mixtape Sleeping Giant. If this video teaches you anything about what to do if RD calls…SCREEN it. (Watch out for the cannabis disclaimer at 3:10.)
A roundup of this week’s choice twitter posts from Mixpak artists, remixers and extended family.
Dexplicit: Got a new club instrumental to send out today. 150bpm jump-up business. DJ’s hit me up!!

Mount Kimbie – Blind Night Errand
South Central’s (sorry, South LA’s) finest Nipsey Hu$$le has promised his Twitter buddies new tracks for every couple thousand followers he gets. Savvy dude. He’s just hit 56k, and to celebrate he has blessed us with this freestyle on Yeezy’s Runaway beat. Is there any limit on Twitter followers? Next single is at 70k, so get joining!
In (heavy, intense, extreme) anticipation of their October 5th “Broughtupsy” album, Bonjay gives us this fantastic cover of Caribou’s ‘Jamelia’. A hauntingly catchy two-step riddim with Alanna’s genre-redefining vocals laid on top of it, this track is perfect for smoke machine filled dancefloors in the early hours of the morning. And as far as I’m concerned, holy cow, there’s no better way to welcome a new day.
Nothing like Vegas telling us how much he loves his homeland, sweet Jamaica. Check this brand new remix featuring Shaggy and Josey Wales each killin’ the verses.
