We love when afrobeats and dancehall artists collaborate and the latest collaboration is a winner. Nigeria’s rising star Patoranking has been added to the remix of Konshens’ cut on Blacklight Riddim. Props to Mixpak for always doing it right!

Whenever we hear that Dre Skull is releasing a dancehall riddim we know we are in for a treat, Smoke Machine, Kling Klang, Loudspeaker are all staples in our sets and Blacklight Riddim was another favourite from the minute we heard it. Dre Skull also has a skill of picking the perfect artists for his riddims, with four cuts from Konshens, QQ, Spice and Tifa all giving it their best, there’s no need for any more.
It’s hard for us to write about this song. Murlo is incredibly talented and the way he works is unlike any other producer. We sometimes get the privilege to listen to sketches occasionally and sometimes we hear stuff fully formed. We have close to 70 songs of his that he has made over the years.
This one is a track that we love, from the initial sketches, to it being fully formed. I remember where I heard it the first time, I remember begging him to play it at raves (if only to somehow try and lift it from him). All the trials and tribulations only add to a song that I hope will be adding to his defining work. A song that we hope connects with people in the same way that other songs do.
Love You Bad is the second tune from Where We Come From to get a video treatment and it is truly beautiful! Check it out above and put the album on your Christmas list if you haven’t got it already!
We are so ready for this one! It’s Akito’s birthday and things are definitely going to get wavey this Saturday night at Hub16. We are really looking forward to djing alongside Famous Eno, Fools & Rushmore, Moleskin and of course the Sub Skank djs. If you managed to RSVP and get your name on the list we will see you on the dancefloor! #ridethetsunami
