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.
Once again we reach out to Manchester and Bacchanal Ronin provides us with a mix that darts around dancehall, soca and SA house. Sit back listen and bust a skank.
Spanning the full Oh Bacchanal! spectrum; bashment, R&B, hip hop, soca, afropop, afro house and tarraxinha; the point of the mix is how much fun it is to weld all these styles together. Overall, the mix feels tactile with an emphasis on melody. I favoured riddims with novel sounds and samples that make them seem complete and charaterful without a voice… although, feel free to add your own vocals if the urge takes you.
