Last week’s Radar Radio show is two hours of dancehall, afropop, soca, and hip hop with a few throwbacks added for good measure! We’ll be back on the air again next week but in the meantime listen back to the latest show above.
This past week, HDD resident The Large returned to NTS Radio (she was part of the great Style and Swagger Show) for a guest mix on past HDD guests Clubb Rock show. In her 20 minute mix she easily glides through all the brand new dancehall spectrum, basically all the stuff you should be listening to right now. If you have heard her fantastic Fresh Fruits mix you should know how good her mixes are and this is no exception.
HDD DJs Kazabon and Hootie Who took over Jamie Tomb Crew’s show on Deja Vu Fmon the 28th of June. Listen back to the show which includes our Top 7 at 7 and a mix of tunes we are feeling at the moment spanning tropical bass, South African house, azonto and soca.Catch Jamie Tomb Crew’s show on Deja Vu Fm every Thursday between 6pm and 8pm
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!
It’s been a big week or so for HDD resident Murlo, his first Ep Nectah was released on Pollinate (You can still support him). He went on the Wifey radio show on Deja Vu FM with juke god Chrissy Murderbot (he also gets in some speed meringue) on Thursday. Then came up to Manchester on Friday with us for Can You Felix‘s crazy KMT party at the Roadhouse (which no one knew was a Patrick Swazye film). He rounded the week off by playing at our 2nd birthday and sending the crowd in a frenzy. What would this week be without some recorded evidence, So above is a video of him playing his Bax Down refix (Mosca’s all conquering Bax and Walter Ego’s Calm Down) in Manchester (with added jumping around from us) and below is the Wifey show from Thursday.

Here is the latest Style & Swagger show , where we played our favourite tracks from Vybz Kartel’s Kingston story, brought some summer vibes to the studio with a summer selection, and ran classic riddims Deh Time Deh and Pon Me Nozzle. We were joined in studio by Tuggawar who filled us in on performing at Sting, getting to know Sean Paul’s dad, and how he got into the dancehall scene, as well as performing two brand new tracks and treating us to a performance of The Surf!
This show was our last at Reel Rebels radio and we definitely made it a good one! Huge thanks to Reel Rebels for the opportunity to get our show up and running and for helping us to bring you seven enjoyable shows full of great music, wicked guests, fun studio crew and of course roti and red stripe! Style & Swagger are very excited to be moving to NTS, bringing you a Bi monthly show on Monday mornings from 1am -2am (hold tight the insomnia crew, we are coming for you).
