Some of you may remember Wrongtom and Deemas J previewing what they were planning for the Wrongtom meets Deemas J in East London album at Dancehall Jamboree last year. Since then the pair have been working extremely hard to finish the album – which is well worth the wait btw! The first single from the album is Jump + Rock + Move which makes you wanna do exactly what it says on the tin. Grab it here.

If you missed out on Physically Fit & Hipsters Don’t Dance’s Dancehall Jamboree here’s a quick flashback by Steve Todd . The night was such a madness it would be impossible to capture everything in one clip, this clip features a short interview with Serocee and D from South Rakkas Crew speaking on Dancehall Jamboree, tours and future projects.
Legendary UK producer and DJ Curtis Lynch has worked with some of the biggest names in music, from Gorillaz to Alicia Keys to Etana. Earlier this year he worked on the bashment remix of Jessie J’s Do It Like a Dude (featuring Lady Chann) which Jessie often uses during her live shows. His Necessary Mayhem label has consistently put out some of the best riddims in the UK over the past 5 years with such homegrown talent as Tippa Irie, Stush and Mr Williamz adding their vocals, Dancehall Style Riddim (which features Mr Williamz) is a HDD favourite. Curtis will be joined by Mr Williamz on the mic at Dancehall Jamboree on Saturday. Mr Williamz is one of the biggest reggae stars in the UK. Having toured Central America, being named Artiste of the year by the BBC and having number 1 singles in the United States and Japan, Mr Williamz is a seasoned performer and should not be missed.
Here are three of our favourite Curtis Lynch Remixes
Amy Winehouse – Stronger Than Me (Curtis Lynch Remix)
Not many people can add to Amy’s vocals but this remix is the perfect accompaniment, verse by Blackout Ja.
(Sorry for the poor quality this was the only youtube available)
Alicia Keys – No One (Curtis Lynch Reggae Remix)
Curtis’ superb reggae remix of Alicia’s hit No One gives the original a new found flavour.
Curtis Lynch, Kele Le Roc & Red Rat – Thinking of You
Curtis works his magic on this remake/remix of Sister Sledge’s Thinking of You, and is joined by Kele Le Roc and Red Rat on the vocals.
Dancehall Jamboree get’s a thumbs up from London’s Metro as well as a recommendation from Time Out London this week. We are super excited about Saturday and we have a few surprises in store on the night. Wrongtom and Deemas J will also be filming their video for Crime Times at the event so make sure you come down early to get involved. Click here for more information on the video shoot.
Joe Grime past HDD guest, host of the Bashment Show on Deja Vu Fm, and all round badman selector has been cooking up some serious surprises with Fresharda for Dancehall Jamboree. Fresharda is a UK MC to watch out for, his version My Queen on Perfect Harmony Riddim is a HDD favourite and was featured on our Dancehall Jamboree mix. After seeing Joe and Fresharda mash up Just Jam a few months back we can’t wait to see the pair in action on Saturday. We get to know a little bit more about their musical inspiration in this quick Q&A.
Fresharda joined Style and Swagger in studio for their Dancehall Jamboree special last Sunday. Press play below to hear an interview with Fresharda, brand spanking new tunes from his new reggae EP Cycle, and his freestyles on Riot Squad, White Label and Go Go Wine riddims.
