Bong Diggy Bang Riddim x Medley Video


As usual we love to post medley videos but when its’s a Medley video of a riddim we love it makes it even better. Featuring cuts from Busy Signal (Free Busy), G-Anna, Konshens, Sanjay and the producer Leftside. We aren’t 100% sure with Leftside’s current Jason Statham thing but we do love his productions and this is no exception.

Leftside and Syon x Hold Me Tight

Leftside is back with his latest visual for his violin lead r and b jam. Leftside started the year off with Teggae Reagge, a delightful mash of dancehall and drum and bass which could have been made by a young timbaland, he abandoned it after 2 songs. Which is a shame because Richard XL (Head of XL records) admired its sound.

With his newer stuff Leftside adds even more value to my belief that he is the Jamaican version of the Dream. He really can write and produce anything he wants and it all sounds gorgeous. Recently he has been going with an early 2000’s soundscape and to be honest it still sounds fresh and upbeat. Anything that reminds us of Co-Ed’s Ride Wit Me, Three Six Mafia’s Got Me Hooked or Darius Bitch Ass ride is a massive thumbs up in our books.

Schlachthofbronx Edits


Not only have they released one of the tunes of the summer (aka “that horn track) Chambacu, SCB also decided to drop some wicked dancehall edits for free since they reached the 10k mark on facebook. These edits include both versions of Phat Punani, Strange Face and Bedroom Bully amongst others.

You can grab them over at their soundcloud.

Style & Swagger 3

 


The latest Style and Swagger is a BIG one: we have a section on Leftside who is moving dancehall forward with what he calls ‘Teggae Reggae’, there’s a section of bashment cover versions from The Large (not to be missed!), a section on our HDD headliner Murlo (who is mr multi-talented, check out some of his work pictured above) and some grimey bashment from Why Delila to get you ready for Physically Fit

If you like what you hear, tune in to Reel Rebels Radio on Tuesday 29th of March, our next one will be live, literally!
