Strictly Riddims No 7 Mixed By Sensible Dancehall

strictly riddims4
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 seventh mix in the series is by Sensible Dancehall, the great Oxford based dancehall blog. This mix by Molassie covers not only some of the best dancehall riddims but also branches out further into different genres with music from Angola and Guatemala amongst others. Make sure you check out their excellent monthly Pon De Floor night as well, this month they have the excellent Jus Now joining them.
