A couple of months ago we teamed up with Kenny Meez from Federation Sound an DJ Autograph to produce the first Screechy Dan mixtape ever, a 100% dubplate mix. It was originally released on Large Up, together with some exclusive tracks and a sound FX package.
Read all about the mix, grab a slice of the pre-release songs and the sound FX package here and in case you aren´t that familiar with Screechy Dan, get to know him a bit better. Tracklist and the mix below:
The deejay who gave New York’s dancehall scene its style and swagger in the 1990s is back, and more prolific than ever. We teamed up with Large Up to present Fiyah Fox, the first-ever mixtape from Red Fox, and his first full-length release in 17 years. Blended in fine style, Fiyah Fox features over an hour of scorchers including all of Red’s latest tunes, brand-new originals, dubplate versions of his classics, hip-hop freestyles and more.
Guests include Shaggy, Rayvon, Naturalee, Gramps Morgan, Screechy Dan, Christopher Martin, Chico, Golden Child and Jimmy Cozier. Red’s always been known for his diverse lyrical themes, and Fiyah Fox definitely touches all of the bases, from culture tunes to dancefloor fillers and even a little much-needed comedy.
