If you call yourself a dancehall fan and you don’t know about Heatwave slap yourself please.

Last week I caught up with its founder and DJ Gabriel to talk EVERYTHING. Dancehall, bashment, the cat’s mother, the works. From the influence of 80’s dancehall veterans Saxon Soundsystem, his favourite artists, to his show on Rinse, and much much more.

Check back soon for the entire interview but for now have a listen to this, one of Heatwave’s latest mix’s Turn & Wine.

Get yourself down to East Village on the 25th for HOT WUK to hear more gold dust exactly like this. Plus MC’s Lady Chann, Riko Dan, Serocee and many more.

Also look out for a feature I’m writing on dancehall music in the UK which should be about soon. If you think there’s anyone essential I need to talk, artists/DJ’s/producers whoever, please let me know.
