Archive for the ‘the heatwave’ tag

It’s no secret that a good remix goes a long way. When Jamie XX flipped Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” last year, it was grand. And now the big homies over at the Heatwave conspired to flip it one step further, dropping verses from Cecile, Mr. Lexx and Timberlee into the mix.

Now one of the coldest remixes of the last couple years has created fire. Warm yourself.

It’s about time that I hit y’all with a proper dancehall – in this case, bashment – mix.  So, since I’m on this British radio kick as of late, I figure why not go straight to the toppa top source of quality bashment in the UK, Gabriel Heatwave.

Expect to hear some new riddims, exclusive material and a few soon-to-be Spring/Summer anthems.  We also get a little sneak preview of the upcoming Energy Bashment Mix, which should be out any day now is out now (download via thehypelifemag).

The fellas over at The Heatwave (one of our all time favorite dancehall blogs) recently played a little homage to the last 25 years of digital dancehall on their Rinse FM radio show, starting with King Jammy and Wayne Smith’s prototype “Sleng Teng” and moving forward at a rate of about one track per year.  Whether you just wanna reminisce over the last 25 years of dancehall music, you need a little history lesson to get you up to date or you just want to listen to some big, big tunes, you should download this mix (right click, save as) immediately. 

Just in case you need a little more convincing, peep the tracklist after the jump.
