A diverse set of sonic excursions on North Wind Remixes

North-Wind-The-Remixes-Artwork-_1Last year Jamrockvybz Records’ put out an EP titled North Wind, a set with vocals provided by Sizzla, Lutan Fyah, Italo Skarcha and Alexander Star. A few days ago a remix version dropped.

North Wind Remixes collects twelve tracks with remixes courtesy of Max RubaDub, Mungo’s Hi Fi, MSDOS, Ted Ganung, Jamie Bostron and SantyG, all of which represent different approaches and genres.

Best of the bunch is by far Max RubaDub’s and Mungo’s Hi Fi’s versions of Sizzla’s Fight Dem Ownself and Lutan Fyah’s Nat Up Yuh Head. Max RubaDub’s cuts are bouncy hip-hop, while Mungo’s Hi Fi’s are dreamy and ethereal, reminiscent of the late and great Augustus Pablo. But also Ted Ganung’s bass-heavy take on Alexander Star’s smooth Home Cooked Meal.

The other seven cuts are up-tempo and frantic sonic excursions and lean heavily towards jungle, drum & bass and dubstep. Not for the fainthearted.
