DJ Filthy Rich – 90s Reggae vs. Hiphop Vol. 1

Sunday, February 7th, 2016

In the early 90s, U.S. record labels started signing the bigger dancehall reggae artists to North American deals. In order to appeal to the domestic market, they started commissioning producers to make hip hop remixes of lead singles. Guys like Salaam Remi, Kenny Dope, Bobby Konders, Clark Kent, KRS-One, and Trackmasters were among the beatmakers creating remixes that came to be more popular in America than the LP versions. These producers in turn enlisted guest verses from rappers like Biggie, Method Man, OGC, Q-Tip, Yo-Yo, and the Geto Boys to create popular combinations. Eventually rappers began seeking out guest verses from reggae artists. The reggae-hiphop sub-genre was suddenly created, and began to flourish.

Being a fan of both genres myself, the marriage of reggae over hip hop beats was a match made in heaven. I started collecting every single piece of vinyl I could find with these remixes.
I wanted to put my collection to use, and decided to create a series of mixes containing 90’s reggae artists over 90’s hip hop beats. Everything from popular hits to obscure white label-only remixes. Including my own custom blends of 90’s reggae acapellas over hiphop instrumentals from that time period. What began as a casual one-off “best of” type of mix, evolved into a multi-volume obsession. I even learned to produce my own party breaks just for this project.

I’ve finally finished the first volume, and wanted to share it here first for the Phila/TROY blog fam. BIG shout outs to certain forum members who contributed tracks/acapellas/instrumentals for this project, especially bbatson, step one, dirt dog, and jaz. Nuff respect. Special thanks to Juhmar for the artwork. -DJ Filthy Rich/djfilthyrich@yahoo.com

Dancehall/Raggamuffin Meets Hip Hop

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009

Being raised in an all Trini neighbourhood, I was fortunate enough to grow up with dancehall and hiphop, and I always thought that when they crossed over, it was the shit.

Who didn’t shit themselves when NWA came out with “Always Into Somethin'” and Admiral D busted shots with his raggastyle! Then Ice Cube copied them with “Wicked”. But then Cypress copied him with “Lick a Shot”.

Anyways… I mixed up this album, NOT JUST A COMPILATION, for those who want some raggatunez, dancehall and dub bass funkin the trunk out of their automobiles.

Enjoy the link! — Cenzi
