It has officially been one year since Kazabon, The Large and Why Delila joined forces to bring you Style and Swagger and what an amazing year it has been! Style and Swagger began on Reel Rebels radio, moved to NTS, djed on the same bill as David Rodigan, played to a sea of people at Notting Hill Carnival on the Extra Stout Soundsystem, were interviewed for a feature on Dancehall in Mixmag, recorded an exclusive mix for Mixmag.net and were interviewed by Time Out London all in 2011!
Check out the latest show from the selectors, which features their favourite riddims and dancehall tunes of the year in a two hour Style and Swagger special.
As we said when this song first premièred the day before Nigerian independence day, the biggest name in Uk hip hop and Uk dancehall team up for this remix of Call Me a Yardie. This video, like the remix is nice mix of Naija and Yardie influences with overall UK flavour.
Every week the excellent So Shifty guys will bring you a performance that they deem #unf*ckwithable. You can give them suggestions on twitter just using that hashtag but ultimately they will decide. This week’s edition is Christmas themed and it’s by Susan Macio, who along with So Shifty would like to wish you a Trini Christmas.
