WILDLIFE! keeps blessing us with nice nice music these days. One week after he dropped his »Roxy Reboot« album release, he kicks off a new bashment mix series: »Dancehall Fraternity« is named after Goldrush International’s regular dance at Wasserwerk Club in Bern (Switzerland) and volume one sets a high standard for those to follow.

SEEN recommends: WILDLIFE! »Roxy Reboot«.

WILDLIFE! - "Roxy Reboot"

Ever since WILDLIFE! told us that he would be working on a release »clashing Jamaican artistes and british Punk rockers together« in an interview back in late 2010, I had been anxious for it to hit the streets.

One week ago, that time had finally come and »Roxy Reboot« was well worth the wait.

WILDLIFE! managed to track down Knox (The Vibrators), TV Smith (The Adverts), Charlie Harper (UK Subs), Duncan Reid & Honest John Plain (The Boys) – all legendary figures from the UK’s first punk rock movement to reinterpret their favourite reggae classics. Simultaneously, he collaborated with Ward 21, Natalie Storm, Serocee and Terry Lynn who reinterpret some influential punk classics.

The result is a 2013 version of what it sounded like when punk rock and reggae met in London 35 years ago and it’s as original, raw, and powerful as it gets. You can feel the passion only very personal projects carry in every single of the eight tunes on »Roxy Reboot« – my personal favourites being »Kingdom Rise Kingdom Fall« and »Pissheadsville«.

Go get your hands on this modern classic now – if you’re quick you might even be one of the lucky 300 owners of the limited vinyl edition designed by Mettler Mettler & Mettler.

A-Trak’s and DJ Zinc’s »Stingray« got bashment-reworked with the help of our friend Natalie Storm.

The single »Like the Dancefloor« features remixes from Dismantle, Shadow Child, and JWLS while the track’s official music video directed by Forever Pictures was shot on location during this year’s Notting Hill Carnival in London.

It will be released on October 16 through Fool’s Gold and Rinse.

Fytch X Carmen Forbes »Raindrops« (Flinch RMX).

Producer Fytch is 16. Singer Carmen Forbes is the same age. Together with Captain Crunch they put out a sweet popstep banger named »Raindrops« a while ago.

Now, Raindrops gets a proper release on Strictly Rhythm with new mixes from Flinch, Dead Audio and a drum & bass retune by DC Breaks. My favourite is definitely Flinch’s version which you can hear below:

Call it a summer hit even now that summer has already peaked – or simply a big, tropical tune that fuses Reggaeton rhythm patterns with contemporary Moombah sounds.
