Come at me with your lefty dancehall versions!

one of the better known ones and, for me, a perfect example

Out to @fred_naked for this one

Toby Tobias tipped me off to this proto dubstep bassline banger

Used to play this a bit in the good old days lol. Jah Mario Shroom vibez.
The Tapes Dj sets are good, he plays a fair bit of lefty wiggy 303 cosmic non-conventional dancehall bits

This is good for making those important early morning narrative transitions from dancehall into chunkier borg new beat. As occasionally one does :crazy_face:

New one on me, dunno if you’d call it dancehall though?

The My Special Girl version on this is insane: https://www.discogs.com/Nitty-Gritty-Gimme-Some-Ayour-Something-My-Special-Girl/release/4351398

Tapes is wicked, randomly met him in Renate one night he’s a mate of Stefan (Sotofett) turned out his mum and dad are the Thompson twins and mum now lives with one half of the KLF :grinning:, it’s in the genes…

Inspired by Brandy & Monica

Trying to find some clips of these but it’s been banned from Discogs and putting “bombs” into YouTube is never good…,

Anyway I love the Under Mi Sensi and Drum Pan Sound versions on this and it’s a great version of Rudy too with some extra beats and intro.

Used to buy loads of these JStar hip hop/dancehall versions. This Sleng Teng one got played a lot.

lolmg i didn’t know the klf bit aahahahahaha. radness

A more mellow example of my favourite Joyride riddim
