Here is Brighton-based DJ Cut La Vis with an intro to the mix he kindly created for us:

This mix represents my two fondest musical loves – Hip Hop and Reggae. In their own ways they pioneered new ways that music can be conceived, recorded and performed. Reggae music was the catalyst for sound system culture/bass-led music in general, and was arguably a precursor to rap with it's “toasters” such as U-Roy and Dillinger amongst others.

I wanted to record a mix that demonstrates how new artists are still heavily influenced by Jamaican artists of 30 or 40 years ago, sampling or in some cases bootlegging old classic rhythms and bringing them up to date with modern-day rappers/vocalists.

It is a testament to the timeless appeal of these crackly vintage recordings that they are still being pressed, bought, sold, sampled, remixed and bootlegged by fresh-faced young artists and music lovers.

I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed putting it together. -DJ Cut La Vis.
