Classic Material Bonus Mix #6: Dancehall Hip Hop '91-99

Classic Material Bonus Mix #6: Dancehall Hip Hop '91-99

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global 90s chart, 2nd in the global dancehall chart, 2nd in the global reggae chart and 6th in the global hip hop chart.

The Classic Material ‘bonus’ mixes fill the gaps in the original Classic Material Hip Hop History mixtape series, exploring specific sub genres or spin off genres not covered in the main series. #6 delves into Mid 90s Dancehall Hip Hop, the pairing of Ragga/Dancehall vocals with classic Hip Hop production. The mix features artists who hung their hat on that particular fusion (Mad Lion, Bobby Konders), Hip Hop styled remixes of Dancehall cuts (see DJ Muggs' remix of Danny Red), Dancehall artists who vocalled Hip Hop beats (Mega Banton, Lady Apache), pairings of Dancehall Acapellas with Hip Hop production from the era exclusive to this mix and similar pairings put together by others (thanks Matt Nelkin).

As with previous editions, the artwork is a pastiche of a popular sleeve from the era, in this case Nervous' 'Weeded' sub-label, home to the imprint's Reggae influenced output.
