Strictly Riddims No 15 Mixed by Joey B

strictly riddims 15_hires

Our Strictly Riddims mix series focuses on instrumentals. With this series we hope to increase appreciation for dancehall riddims and instrumentals as we feel that in dancehall the productions and producers don’t often get the props they deserve.

We return back to the mix’s dancehall roots with Manchester based Joey B. As part of both the Hot Milk and Swing Ting crews he is quite familiar around these parts (he is a badman dj). Here is what Joey had to say about his mix.

In terms of how I put the mix together, its a one take mix, where I just drew for some of my favourite Bashment riddims from over the years, new and old, in no particular order. Most of these are played from Jamaican release 45s, with some CD juggling too. I wanted to give some shine to the riddims that have stood the test of time for me, and also to the new ones that I’m feeling right now. Was well good fun doing the mix, and great to bring the producers and labels to the fore.

Don’t forget to check out Joey’s soundcloud and the Hot Milk page.

HDD x Live at Hotmilk
