Mixtape galore

Recently got home from a one week holiday without Internet access. When at home and in front of the computer I immediately found four excellent and diverse mixtapes from Jahtari out of Germany, DKR and Double Tiger from NYC and Million Vibes from Sweden. Check them below.

Million VibesEternal Fire
No less than 49 tracks and more than one hour of blazing reggae music including some of the finest contemporary cuts from 2014.

DKR – Digital Dollars 3: In the Racks
U.S. label and distributor DKR has unleashed an 80 minutes mix of wicked 80s digital dancehall. The selection is strictly from albums and no singles have been included.

Double Tiger – Dubcast Vol. 3
Double Tiger is the producer behind the bass heavy duo Tour de Force. For this foundation mix Double Tiger has hand-picked the artists, songs and sounds that have influenced him and Tour de Force’s music. Included are dubplates and tunes from the vaults.

Disrupt – Clash DJ mix
Disrupt – one half of the Jahtari crew – has put together a mix for Clash magazine. It features 17 productions from the Jahtari camp and it’s the usual deep and comupterized reggae sounds. Listen and download via the Clash website.

Swedish sound Million Vibes unleashes a new reggae and dancehall mix called Moving On containing conscious and lovers one drop as well as some nice dancehall tunes.

Million Vibes certainly knows reggae. Last year they, together with Rough Lynx, did a wicked tribute to Gussie Clarke, one of the best reggae producers ever.

In the new mix, Will Jam, selector of Million Vibes, have brought together some great old and new artists from Jamaica, Europe and U.S. For example Romain Virgo, Tarrus Riley, Queen Ifrica, J Boog and Assassin.

Included are also dubplates from well know artists such as Busy Signal and Gyptian, but also from Swedish sensation Joey Fever, who is soon about to drop his debut album.

Reggaemanis bästa mixar 2009

I dag kan nästan alla göra sina egna mixar. Du behöver inte vara professionell dj längre, det enda som behövs är en dator och lite mjukvara. Sedan är saken biff.

Utvecklingen har inneburit att marknaden översvämmats av mixar och podcasts från höger och vänster. Vissa har talang för att mixa, andra för att ha ypperlig musiksmak. Tricket är att kunna kombinera båda.

Personerna bakom årets bästa vinnare är både fenor på att mixa och på att välja musiken. Konkurrensen har varit tuff, men de tre på prispallen nedan står starka.

3. Rough Lynx & Million Vibes – Rough Lynx & Million Vibes Present: A Tribute To Gussie Clarke
Två svenska soundsystem hyllar en av reggaens främsta producenter. Innehåller flera hits av bland annat Shabba Ranks och Johnny Osbourne.

2. BMC – Nothing Can Touch the 45
Hans bästa mixar är de med modern reggae, men även de med äldre roots och dancehall håller mycket hög kvalitet. Den här mixen innehåller låtar från 2008 och 2009, bland annat Queen Omegas Jah Dawta och Chezideks Bun Di Ganja.

1. Echotone – UK Dub From the Roots
Mix som på ett fantastiskt vis blandar äldre reggae med 00-tal. Låtarna spänner över kända alster som West Bound Train med Dennis Brown till Super T med sin version av samma låt.
