The guys are back for their second instalment of their summertime mix series. I really don’t think i have to add anymore but i will, the way the guys manage to incorporate the samples without getting cheesy is great but the selection is even better.
PS We ( Kazabon and I) argue whether or not Summertime is played out. She says that it is, the fault she feels lays with music tv channels and lazy dj’s. I didn’t grow up with sky so i don’t share that view and (whisper it quietly) i love the remix even more. This non music tv channel childhood vs music channel growing up is intriguing and something we will be exploring in another post.
We are currently burning through every single episode of the Fresh Prince (more on that in the future), so Jazz is in our lives everyday. Although he does still continue to DJ he really is a great producer, see the Angie Stone LP. Here he teams up with singer rapper Ayah for something truly blissed out.
With the British weather deciding to become tropical (not just the sun), there is nothing better than sitting in the park, having a bbq or just chilling out. However what do you choose to soundtrack these afternoons or evening enjoying the rays? Here are a selection of mixes that come HDD recommended.
Joe Grime Hot Wuk Mix
Deja Vu Fm’s Joe Grime made a promo mix for the next Hot Wuk (Royal Wedding Special next thursday), as Joe said its a mix of his favourite riddims old and new.
Heatwave Energy Bashment Mix
Speaking of Hot Wuk, Heatwave released a mix this week and its chocca full of party tracks including the Vybz/ Show me love mash, refix of Trick Me and my highlight of Mr Lexx on the Punany Riddim.
You can download it here.
Rob Pursey Zonin 2
The return to Rob’s classic Zonin mix which can only be described as a diverse look into a vibe that we all have. This edition features tracks from Twista, Adele, The Dream and Clams Casino. You can grab it at the Southern Hospitality blog.
Jazzy Jeff and Mick Boogie Summertime Mix
Two absolute legends in the game, take the summer mix to another level with this quick fire 50 track mix. Sadly it doesnt come in a large mp3 which is annoying to no end. Yanks might have the one up on us snce they have better weather than us but this mix doesn’d dissapoint. You can get it over at UNDRCRWN.
