As always happens, one search on the web dragged me further than I initially anticipated. In this case, it all turned out OK in the end: I wondered across some wonderful tracks that the UK’s Heatwave posse have shrewdly made available.
A veritable cornucopia of official remixes and “cheeky party-starting bashment/hip hop refixes or mashups”. Pulling from all corners of the urban scene, this collection includes Beanie Man, Coki and Benga, Warrior Queen and New Young Pony Club, amongst others.
Some of my faves:
- Shine Eye Gal (Shabba Ranks and Mykal Rose)
- It’s on Tonight (Benga and Coki feat Rubi Dan)
- Rolex it Up (Beanie Man and Wiley)
