Disorda, manager of Suspect Packages, relentless champion of the underground and possessor of a great record collection, takes the helm of Bonafide Beats with a little help from irrepressible host, Serocee. Popping a tin of Red Stripe, Disorda proceeds to break open a dusty crate of top ranking 80s and 90s dancehall vinyl and put together a set of riddim killers.
Rarities and classics jostle together and capture the contradictory nature of the sound. Opening track Lone Ranger’s Badder Dan Dem sets the tone for a mix that has the vitality, the chaos, the bombastic, the political and the dark tinges of the genre.
