Chart positions

This show was 6th in the global vinyl only chart, 8th in the global dub chart and 32nd in the global reggae chart.

One from the archives, back by popular demand: DJ and producer Fade 2 (Black Redemption) teams up with Addis Ababa-based selector Yonatan to pay tribute to the other side of dancehall – a selection of minimal & tough dubs & versions from the early '90s to the mid 2000s. No laptop speakers for this one please!
Fade 2 explains the mix:
“In the early 90s these riddims were coming out which were so raw, minimal, uncompromisingly electronic, but had so much swing, so much bump, they just shattered the mould that Sleng Teng had established and beamed down something from another dimension. Yonatan and I wanted to showcase these riddims, just the B-sides with their insistent pulse of drum and bass, scattered and shuffling percussion, twisted synth lines and shards of vocals. The earliest piece on here is probably 1990 and the latest mid-2000s. Most of them are just called Version …”

I love these specific dancehall riddims and mad sounds! Great tribute to this style and nuff food for my subwoofer! Would be glad to know what funny apps like shazam learn from this mix :) I think, the server would overheat.
