Our good friends So Shifty released their Rude Gal EP on Man Recordings yesterday. The original Rude Gal is a reggaton inspired tune with Germany’s biggest Spanish speaking singer Paco Mendoza on the vocals. The EP features remixes from Murlo, Chief Boima and Isa GT, Thornato and Atropolis so of course we are into this one! Listen to Till from So Shifty speaking about the release and how the remixes came together on the latest Man Recordings Podcast here. The release is available to buy from amazon, juno and itunes .

Every week the excellent So Shifty guys will bring you a performance that they deem #unf*ckwithable. You can give them suggestions on twitter just using that hashtag but ultimately they will decide. This week it’s 50 Cent and his track Disco Inferno.
We lovingly call him the The Dream of Jamaica, but Leftside is really an under rated musical genius. Whether it’s his own songs, production, his record label, Keep Left Records, or even videos he really is someone that is incredible. In this 40 minute mix we chose some our favourite Leftside vocals and productions (including what we feel are the best cuts on our favourite riddims) and tried our best to encapsulate an artist who knows no boundaries. Whether it’s his classic dancehall, his alter ego Dr Evil who specialises in impersonations of Lil Wayne, Jay Z and Chris Brown, he really can do it all. People tend to overlook his work on higher tempo dance music with the likes of Major Lazer and Crookers employing him to give his magic touch to whatever madness they have cooking up. With the buzz building with his new single Monkey Biznizz we thought it’s time to make sure the world knows it’s #ALLLEFTSIDEEVERYTHING

Every week the excellent So Shifty guys will bring you a performance that they deem #unf*ckwithable. You can give them suggestions on twitter just using that hashtag but ultimately they will decide. This week it’s Bounty Killer and his famous collaboration with Barrington Levy Living Dangerously.
Above is the video for Stylo G’s Soundbwoy which is out this week and if you follow him on twitter he wants you to buy. So go and support him and his label 3Beat (who honestly are having a great summer).
We are instead focusing on Poiriers’s great remix of Stylo G’s Press Up (Orignially produced by our homies So Shifty)Poiriers remix of the tune send it into that same territory as Aidonia’s tip Pon Toe ans Spice’s Hot Patty Wine, an African drum laden dancehall fugue state that we love.
You can grab this track and Murlo’s She Cobra (MIA would body that instrumental) on the Booty Based Mob compilation. It’s pay what you want but we highly suggest paying some money to it.
Inspired by dancehall riddims and the recent work of two of our favourite producers Murlo (Quartz EP) and Dubbel Dutch (Self Help Riddim), we have decided to launch the HDD Strictly Riddims mix series focusing on our favourite instrumentals. With this series we hope to increase appreciation for dancehall riddims and instrumentals as we feel that in dancehall the productions and producers don’t often get the props they deserve. The tenth mix in the series is from German dancehall dons So Shifty.Their talents are so far reaching that it’s tough to narrow down what they do, if there is anything going on in the Europe that has to do with dancehall, soca or cumbia they are likely to be involved. For their mix they decided to switch things up a bit and focus on riddims from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. So we have 55 or so riddims expertly mixed into a wonderful 20 minute span.
