  • Another Vybz Funky Bashment Mash-up

    Posted on October 16th, 2009 No comments


    Since we got some really good feedback from the previous post, I decided to give you guys another Funky Bashment mash-up, still with a Vybz Kartel vocal and still with a Lil Silva instrumental. This one isn’t brand new but still, courtesy of Shaun 14.

  • UK Funky Bashment Bombs

    Posted on October 15th, 2009 2 comments


    Dj Shredah is from Bristol, UK and Bristol is definitely the host of a great music scene. Just recently , we’ve seen Joker exploding the dubstep genre by adding some Love Symbol feel to it, while Dub Boy and the Ruffneck Discotek crew are keeping things moving on the dancehall/reggae side. And it was during Dub Boy’s mix at Karnival in MTL that I first heard the tune featured here, a Funky revisit of Vybz Kartel’s massive hit “Ramping Shop”. Dub Boy was later telling me he even liked that version better than the original. Like the Heatwave blog, we’ve been talking and following the crossover between Funky and dancehall for a while now and things are getting into place, with XLR8R doing it’s cover on Funky and asking Gabriel from Heatwave to do Funky Bashment mix. The result is terrific mix full of dubplates and is definitely a must listen. Head over there to download it and for the tracklist. You’ll find Dj Shredah contribution in there.

    Shredah dropped a great compilation of home made Funky-Dancehall mash-ups a few month ago called 100% SHREDAH REMIX BASHMENT VS FUNKY VOL 1. Be warned, the man as way more in stock and vol.2 is on it’s way very soon! He was kind enough to send me a promo and there’s bombs in there, so keep an eye on the guy. This is exclusive for Masala.

    Dj Shredah vit à Bristol, UK et Bristol abrite une excellente scène musicale. Récemment, on a pu voir Joker faire explosé le dubstep en y ajoutant une bonne touche de groove à la Love Symbol, et pendant ce temps Dub Boy et son crew du Ruffneck Discotek continue à faire bouger les choses du coté dancehall/reggae. Et c’est pendant le mix de Dub Boy durant le premier Karnival à MTL que j’ai d’abord entendu le morceau présenté plus haut, un remix funky du hit de Vybz Kartel: “Ramping Shop”. Dub Boy m’a d’ailleurs dit le lendemain qu’il préférait cette version à l’original. Comme chez Heatwave, nous avons parlé et suivi le crossover entre Funky et dancehall depuis un moment et les choses semblent se mettrent en place maintenant, avec XLR8R qui fait sa couv de septembre sur le Funky et qui demande à Gabriel de Heatwave de faire un Funky Bashment mix. Le résultat est super, plein de dubplates et c’est un mix qu’il faut absolument écouter. Allez faire un tour ici pour le télécharger et pour la liste des morceaux. Vous y trouverez la contribution de Dj Shredah.

    Il y a quelques mois, Shredah a sorti une excellente compilation de mash-up Funky-Dancehall fait maison qui s’appelle 100% SHREDAH REMIX BASHMENT VS FUNKY VOL 1. Soyez prévenu, il en a encore beaucoup en stock et le volume 2 arrive très bientôt! Il m’a gentiment envoyé le promo et il y a pas mal de bombe là-dedans, donc gardez un oeil sur lui. C’est une exclu Masala.

  • Valeo September Top 10

    Posted on September 22nd, 2009 1 comment

    Back again with a new top 10. I guess you can tell what are my obsessions lately by this tracklist. It’s pretty much a lot of UK Funky / Tropicalish 130 bpm stuff (Kyla, Man&Man, Dj Massacre, Sam Tiba, Silverlink). Expect some mixes coming up, je me sors les doigts du cul.

    There’s a few notable exceptions though, being Cumbia Villera treatement of Major Lazer’s Hold The Line by Frikstailers and, to keep it in Argentina, Dancehall fire by one of my favorite female MC: Princesa. Also, I’m loving this collaboration between DuttyArtz‘s Geko Jones and the always excellent Uproot Andy. A more recent discovery is one of Necessary Mayhem latest production the excellent Joker Smoker Riddim. On the disco dub side, Terje‘s great remix of Paul Simon hooked me yesterday night during a CFCF mix (shout out to Seb Diamond who also pointed me into Terje’s direction a little while ago). I hope you enjoy the selection. Drop some love in the comment section and add me on myspace if you do.

    Silverlink – The Message Is Love (L-Vis 1990 remix)
    Kyla – Daydreaming (Lil Silva Remix)
    Man&Man – Le Cabaret Hologramme (Lazy Flow Remix – Poirier Edit)
    Dj Massacre – Tarolas
    Sam Tiba – Barbie Weed
    Paul Simon – Diamonds (Todd Terje Tangoterje Dub Remix)

    Necessary Mayhem ft YT, Ziggi, Mr Williams – Joker Smoker Riddim
    Uproot Andy & Geko Jones – Manuelita remix
    Major Lazer – Hold The Line (Frikstailers Remix)
    Princesa – Más fuego
