Dancehall Days

I’ve been making a concerted effort to get back on my dancehall shit in the last six months or so, from recording with Natalie Storm to remixing Federation to spinning on the Deadly Dragon show on EVR. Here is a short piece I wrote for the newly relaunched Large Up site on Okay Player, about Cutty Ranks:

You can listen to my set on Deadly Dragon in their archives, just click on October 3. My set is in the second hour. And here is my remix for Federation:


I wanted to do a bounce / dancehall track and the Federation Sound dons Max and Kenny said no samples, so I recreated the Triggaman drums from scratch on the 808 kit in Battery and put a huge sub bass underneath. Big up to Nick Chacona for mixing it down with me. My favorite mix from the release is DJ Theory’s moombahton remix of To-isis, this shit is bananas! Max played the whole remix album on Federation Invasion (also on East Village Radio – click October 12).
