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.

I held off on posting this not because it isn’t good, it’s amazing, but just because it is so good as a teaser. For the next edition in the “Showa” series Wiley, Einstein, Joell Ortiz and Wayne Marshall join up for what seems to be a beast of a track. Cyaan wait for this to drop finally, it’ll be out soon on Prodigal.
