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.

The latest release from Poirier’s Also Records see Boogat ride over one of the most recognisable samples in dancehall, the intro breakdown fro Dawn Penn’s No No No. Combine that with some reggaeton and some dutty low bass it’s another hit from this fledgling record label. If you haven’t checked out Boogat and Poirier wowing the crowd at sonar earlier this month, please do as it is fantastic. You can buy the single over here.
Ps You should check out the Mixpak round up of Go Go Wine remixes. Not only is there the Joe Grime one but also Makala’s rather excellent version.
HDD residents Why Delia and The Large are joining forces under their Physically Fit and Shimmy Shimmy guises to bring you an afternoon of dancehall at the Big Chill House roof terrace in Kings Cross. Headlining the event is the legendary Saxon Studio whose members include such greats as Maxi Priest, Tippa Irie and Papa Levi. Check out Papa Levi and Daddy Sandy performing at Notting Hill Carnival in 2009 for a taste of what’s in store.
Also on the bill is MC Mr Williamz who will be joined by past HDD guest Joe Grime on the ones and twos, Wrongtom, Cool Hand Luke and Felix Hall, and of course Style & Swagger. If this line up isnt enough to get your taste buds going, there will also be a BBQ on the roof terrace. For more info visit the facebook event page.
Why Delila and The Large have put this selection together in preparation for the event, their mix features some of the biggest tunes from the artists on the bill. Enjoy!
