After almost two years of the Style & Swagger show being on the air The Large, Why Delila and I (Kazabon) have decided to take a Style & Swagger hiatus due to our work commitments. From monthly recordings at the Reel Rebels studio always accompanied by one of Roti Stop’s famous rotis and some Red Stripes, to dancehall, bashment and soca filled late nights in the NTS studio – we really have had a blast.
We’ve had some fun times being interviewed by Callaby Mag, Mixmag and Time Out and had some amazing guest selectors and MCs on the show Serocee,Tuggawar, Fresharda, Wrongtom, 1TA from Part 2 Style, HDD’s Hootie Who and Murlo. Although we are taking a break from the show for a while, this is not the end – we are by no means stepping away from music. I will still be running things here at HDD with Hootie Who, The Large will still be running all things Shimmy Shimmy related and Why Delia will be writing for United Reggae. I want to say a big thank you to all of you who have listened to and supported the show. If you missed our final show, check out the podcast above – we played some S&S anthems and some of our favourite dancehall covers (some of these are pretty special especially Beenie Man’s cover of this). If you missed any of our past podcasts or are feeling nostalgic for the show check them out on our mixcloud page.
On the last Style & Swagger show HDD’s Hootie Who joined Kazabon and The Large in the NTS studio to play a selection of his favourite African Dancehall tunes. The mix features African stars D’banj, Kaakie, Flavour and P- Square amongst others. This one’s not to be slept on!
To kick off the first Style & Swagger show of the year on NTS, Kazabon and The Large celebrate the arrival of Soca Season by playing over an hour of high energy tunes to make you wine and wuk up. Listen out for some new dancehall riddims and new tunes from the Mixpak and Suncycle camps too.
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.
