Missed Mixtapes #2

Blogariddims is one of my favourite collections of mixtapes to be found on the internet. With 50 instalments of all genres, it was a difficult task to choose just one to share with you.

After much deliberation I went with number 40, “Grime in the Dancehall“. This is hugely nostlagic for me. It evokes vivid memories of my first summer in London, Red Stripe, hanging out in parks and cycling home after sweaty club nights.

The DJs – John Eden and Grievous Angel – put it together in 2008 in order to show the link between Reggae, Dancehall and Grime. For them, the parallels were immediately obvious. As they put it, all of the different sounds involved, “MCing over mad riddims about what is happening on the streets, pirate radio, lyrical beefs, aggro, girls. Bass.” Unlike my first mix in this series, there is a detailed tracklist for Grime in the Dancehall (see below). Even further, for those of you who are really interested, a detailed write up of how the tracks were chosen and how the mix was put together can be found here on the Uncarved Blog.

It is hard to pick favourites, but I particularly enjoy the last 10 minutes, which includes Jammer and Rihanna giving their own interpretation of Sizzla’s “Give Me a Try“.
