Inspired by dancehall riddims and the recent work of two of our favourite producers Murlo (Quartz EP) and Dubbel Dutch (Self Help Riddim), we have decided to launch the HDD Strictly Riddims mix series focusing on our favourite 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.
Then the mix series went away for a while. We are happy to announce it’s back and we got 2 exciting producers from our cultural partner Enchufada‘s label. Bison and Squareffekt have crafted a mix full of tracks that “evoke a cinematic space journey that launches out of Africa and connects to the West.” You should also check out their work on the recent We Call it Zouk Bass II compilation which is also out on Enchufada on Monday.
We couldn’t think of a better combo to bring back the mix series and take it into exciting new directions.
