Just a few tidbits from around the web. The Sizzla T-Shirts are selling out..just a heads up, in case, you end up needing one for the conceptual Youtube genre that is taking shape. See above. Also, in recent DJ mix news, Laidback Luke dropped the Buraka Som Sistema remix of “Gone Too Far” in his mix for KISS FM last Saturday night. Funny thing is I spent last Saturday in the studio working on a remix of a certain upcoming Laidback Luke and Diplo track…hey! Catchdubs and Ayres did a joint promo mix “Just Kickin It…” for their upcoming Australian tour and Catchdubs snuck the Buraka remix in as well. Quality mix through and through. Grab it here and check the full tracklist at Catchdubs’ fine blog.
Also, I’m heading to New Orleans tonight for a ten year anniversary party for Katey Red’s “Melpomene Block Party” (her first album) and the line up is massive. Gonna be SERIOUS business. Posts to follow.
Nice review of the “Gone Too Far” release in IDJ Magazine.
The Fader has coverage of the recent Skull Riddim activity in Eddie Stats’ Ghetto Palms column – including a downloadable riddim blend of versions and dubs from Shifta, Crossovah, Lyrical, Natalie Storm and Vybz Kartel. Also, Stats’ turned in a great, live on two turntables mix for reggae blog Seen’s latest podcast. Be sure to grab that (and to check back every week).
Also, Skull Riddim has been showing up all over Youtube. Check a few of these blends.
New Dre Skull single dropping later this month…stay tuned.
