So Shifty Presents #Unfuckwithable

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’s edition is the OG version of Supercat’s Scalp Dem, i am partial to the Wu Tang Remix with Method Man as well.

DJ Teddy King and DJ Gravy – Back In Time

I’ll let you into a secret, i’m not the biggest fan of dancehall or reaggae mixtapes, especially ones that follow the same pattern. The ones that have the DJ screaming over transitions followed by an avalanche of lasers and a cacophony of other sound effects. It all feels rather bland and infuriatingly repetitive.

This mix by Teddy King and Gravy is the opposite. It’s a mix that is lovingly crafted and expertly mixed. featuring a great blend of early 90’s dancehall over classic hip hop beats it’s something that i cant help but enjoy. Even the little bit of chat is highly amusing as it’s often just singing along with classic verses.

You can download the mix over here.
You can also buy the cd of the mix (which features the fantastic artwork over here).
