Spooky x Coolie Joyride Remixes

It’s always great to see a producer take a classic and make it his own (especially when done right). Spooky did that with the OG, now we get to see 4 new producers take on his remix and make something different. Samename (those carnival whistles), Murlo, Sir Pixalot and Trends all provide remixes for the 6th release on Oil Gang records. Expect this one to come out in August, on vinyl only. Above is our favourite cut on the original riddim

Pum Pum Riddim/ Showa Eski x Riddim Mix

We don’t know what’s exactly in the water right now but various influences came together at the same time for this riddim mix to happen. First of all you have Spooky‘s Coolie Joyride EP out on Oilgang records, look out for the refixes especially the Samename one. Then you have Spooky’s mix for Mixpak where he showcases his favourite examples of Grime and Dancehall meeting up. You also have last year’s 10 year anniversary of Grime, Oil Gang’s reggae mix he sent us, Slackk and Murlo’s work ethic and Natalie Storm Boys for Breakfast being used by Adidas for their latest campaign(see above). Then there was the tease that we are finally going to hear the sequel to Showa Eski called Showa Step. All of it combined to make us want to do a riddim mix combining the two riddims and cuts from Donaeo, Kano, Ward 21, Natalie Storm, Einstein and the man himself Wiley. Shout out to Commander B for making Pum Pum riddim and Prodigal Entertainment for the riddims themselves.
