Another Catchy Spring Track… thanks “FX”

March 26, 2010

So Jon “FX” Crawford produces a track called “Thunderball Riddim” then says damn this beat is sick, I am going to get all the hottest dancehall MC’s to spit on it. The results are unreal and this complation has been on repeat on my itunes for weeks. Not bad considering it’s all the same beat HAHAHA. Here are 2 samples, but go get the album it doesn’t disappoint: Thunder Ball Riddim

11 dub

November 10, 2009

mad_professor_456_001

Last year for the big decade of dub party they brought in Sister Nancy and this year they have done the one-up booking Mad Professor to mark the 11th anniversary. Yes, Dub at the Pub, Calgary’s long standing all things dub and reggae night down at the Drum and Monkey has been keeping Tuesday’s worthy a night out  for 11 years now.  Congrats are surely due to DJ’s High & I for doing their thing all these years.  Roots reggae on the Drum & Monkey side, hard dancehall to ragga jungle on the Bamboo side, two rooms to vibe and bounce in and out of all night long.  I can barely contain excitement writing this, mf MAD PROFESSOR tomorrow night!  Get there early kids.

For the life of me I can’t find my copy of the Mad Professor vs. Massive Attack album so here is a video and a few Dub at the Pub inspired tracks.

Buju Banton – Murderer

Capelton – Jah Jah City

D Jahsta – High Grade Mashup

Sizzla – One Love (Self Evident Remix)

postscript:  self evident will be playing over at lord nelson’s this friday.
