Culture Clash Dubplate Mix

Earlier this year, we competed in Red Bull’s Culture Clash in London at the o2 Arena. Up against Wiz Khalifa & Taylor Gang, Wiley & Eskimo Dance and the UKG Allstars, we brought out Popcaan, Spice, Kranium and a whole bunch of UK guests to bring the trophy home.

We prepared around 100 dubs especially for the night, and we weren’t able to play them all, so they’ve been assembled now in a special mixtape that Red Bull have now released!

Listen to the mix below and watch them in action in the video of all of our rounds from the clash.

We Juke The Tracks Out

Wills Glasspiegel has made this short video for NPR on Juke & Footwork. Shot in Chicago and featuring some of the producers making the best juke sounds out there talking about their craft – RP Boo, Traxman, DJ Earl – it gives a quick insight into how the sounds get created, how the dances get danced, and how kraftwerk gets footworked.
