AMBUSH - South African DJ mixes amazing dub, reggae and jungle

If DJ Ambush is in town you have to go see him, and if you come across his mixes, you just have to listen - i'm loving all of his sounds, an amazing mix of dub reggae and jungle sounds. Not too crazy, and just downtempo enough that you can really get into this however you want, channel the energy however you need.

Henry Pope - Heat Waves Mix

Henry Pope... you complete me. I really dig Henry's mixes. I gotta travel to LA more to hang and eventually DJ with this guy. His mixes are such a funky mix of modern electronic grooves combined with organic and natural rhythms - think mixing downtempo trap with soul or calypso music. Ahhh listen for yourself!

Yasiin X Gaye: The Return ... 'nuff said (FREE DOWNLOAD)

Wow, Yasiin (Mos Def) X Gaye (Marvin) mashed up and mixed - hell yeah. Please get this and spread the word! Here's more info lifted direct from Amerigo Gazaway's Bandcamp page:

"Amerigo Gazaway's *Soul Mates* series continues the theme of his previous work in creating collaborations that never were. On the series' latest installment, Amerigo unites Brooklyn rapper Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) and soul legend Marvin Gaye for a dream collaboration aptly titled "Yasiin Gaye". Building the album's foundation from deconstructed samples of Gaye's Motown classics, Gazaway re-purposes the instrumentation into new productions within a similar framework. Carefully weaving Bey's tangled raps and Gaye's soulful vocals over his new arrangements, the producer delivers a quality much closer to an authentic collaboration than a lukewarm "mashup" album."
