Vybz may be on lock down, but the first single from the Mixpak released Kingston Story album, Go Go Wine is still in full effect. After featuring a few remixes not long back, two more great versions have appeared: A7′s treatment of Ce’cile’s classic dancehall tune, ‘Hot Like We’, and Obeyah‘s mash-up with John Legend’s version of ‘Rolling In The Deep’. Keep ‘em coming!
Here’s a brand new, super sleazy track from Andy Petr. “Dirty Money”‘s muted, damp drum clicks and tom slaps make it groove like a Dam-Funk tune but with Petr’s syncopated vocal and synth melodies roiling along the surface. At under two minutes, you’ll want to put this one on replay (in a major way).
Melé stepped up to the Boiler Room Standard Place takeover a couple of weeks back, delivering a heavy set featuring his own productions, classic garage, house and even a little Daniel Beddingfield. Now the audio from his one hour set is up for the download over at the Boiler Room site – go here to stream or download.
