This Saturday alongside playing Hipsters Don’t Dance World Carnival party, I will also be warming up at the Necessary Mayhem 6th Birthday party, alongside Robbo Ranx, Serocee, Tippa Irie and a heap more. Big up Curtis Lynch & the Necessary Mayhem family for grafting for 6 years and putting out some heaviness along the way, here are my 6 necessary tunes from the label:
Etana – August Town (2009)
Big conscious one drop tune from August Town-born artist Etana.
Shola Ama & Sweetie Irie (2006)
Nice collab track on the wicked Sess Retro riddim
Red Rat Medley (2007)
Don’t listen to Red Rat when he says ‘Nah, it’s not a Curtis Lynch production’, it is..and it’s biggg.
Shabba Ranks – Disrespect (2011)
Shabba is always demanding respect, so you best give it for this one.
Tarrus Riley – Possessed (2012)
Turn up the bass.
Mr Williamz / Stush – Set The Standard / Call Mi Phone (2011)
Dancehall Style riddim from last year let the new UK vocal talents shine through, couldn’t pick a favourite.
