Strictly Love We A Deal With reviewed in Riddim Magazine

Shortly after the release of our bedroom-massacre soundtrack called Strictly Love We A Deal With, Riddim Magazine contacted us and wanted to do a review of the mix. The review is available in the latest paper issue of the magazine as well as on the picture above. If you do not speak German, here is an English translation that a kind follower on twitter provided us with:

The two-man-army has it’s home base in Malmö. For the past six years DJ Shirkhan and Sammy K have supplied Swedish public radio and all of Scandinavia with Reggae and Dancehall. On a mission to increase their area of influence, they present a downloadable Valentine’s mix with The Soul Lounge, winning over R’n’B & Hip Hop bloggers.

“Light a few Candles, press play and get ready to mess up the sheets.” Their boisterous foreplay is on point as they stumble into the bedroom with Agent Sasco and Drake and continue to cruise between the sheets with regulars, exclusives and remixes accommodating John Holt’s 1982 invitation: “Sweetie come brush me”, reactivated by Collie Buddz. Also in the mix, the 62-year-old Lloyd Parks, who with the help of his Son Leftside, became the senior “Lover Man” on the old “Slaving –Riddim”; additionally the melodramatic schmoozer from Foreigner “I Want To Know What Love Is” in a version by Tesanne Chin.

This reign of love, from a country that was once a leading exporter of pornography, relinquishes slackness with “Strictly Love We A Deal With” and instead seduces with romanticism. For the partner’s sake, there is a tolerable dose of Hip Hop in the mix, but a majority of the tunes, aside from the indispensable Bitty’s, Courtney’s and Tarrus’, are by current artists such as Stein, Demarco, Kartel, Gyptian and Mavado. As expected, the ratio of female artists featured is high and the vibrations of Autotune are audible. With Snoop’s “Wet”, the mix ends exactly where it wanted to get to.
