If you’re a listener of Dancehall Music, then you’ve heard the name “Shabba Ranks” before. One of the greatest Dancehall Artists that ever stepped on stage, we’ve called him “The Grammy Kid“, “Emperor Ranks“, and “Big Dutty Stinking Shabba” to name a few. As child he was one of the few Deejays I’ve looked up to, when he dropped music videos and stage performances I was glued to the TV screen despite my family complaining of how “slack” his music was. Today, on Oldies Sunday I present to you a few of his songs, and the singles that have sampled/paid tribute to him. What are your favourite Shabba Ranks singles? Let us know in the comments section. Let’s go!

Lifestyle Blogger ShannyDeLioness is back for another week of “Mixtape Rave“! This week she serves you an array of Mixtapes she’s been feeling over the past 7 days. If you missed the 1st installment, check it out here.
DJ Charlotte is one of Trinidad & Tobago’s hottest DJs. This release coincided with the 2016 YUMA Carnival Band launch for Trinidad Carnival and it is a sweet mix indeed. The perfect confectionary of Soca, Dancehall, Hip Hop and Top 40 hits. Released 2 Months ago on her Sound Cloud, it is a favourite for me!
Those who know me well know that I love EDM as much as I love Soca and Dancehall! Barbados’ finest (To me definitely), DJ Puffy goes in hard with this EDM mix. I literally feel like I am at Tomorrowland or some other huge EDM festival just listening to this high energy mix.
Taking it back to yard (never stray far from my roots)this time around, this mixtape showcases the talents of 2 members of one of Jamaica’s hottest Sound Systems, Chromatic. This mix of some of the hottest Top 40, Hip Hop and Dancehall hits and numerous Dub samples is an eargasmic treat.
Today I introduce the first in a new series titled “Mixtape Rave“. Hosted by Blogger Shannydelioness, she scours the Internet to bring to you some of the mixtapes she has been feeling over the past week. Please note that Shanny is a Soca Junkie and there’s a chance your favourite DJ’s mix might be featured. Tune in.
Sweet Soca at its finest prepared for the Miami Carnival Warm Up by one of Trinidad & Tobago’s best DJs. DJ Private Ryan’s mixes renewed my love affair with Carnival so of course they are a must listen for me. I love the mix of Soca artistes from T&T, St. Lucia, and all the other islands in between.
2. Summer Festa 2015 – Dei Musicale
This mix starts off with one of my favourite songs, Lean On (ft. MO) – Major Lazer & DJ Snake which ushers in some of 2015’s hottest Dancehall, EDM, Soca and ending with the hottest Hip Hop selections.
I have Youtube’s search engine to thank for discovering DJ Puffy’s musical genius (my Tunein app is stuck on Slam 101 every evening so I have the chance to listen to his show). This promo mix is PURE VIBES!
Feeling spooky? Why not add a soundtrack to your horror story with KickRaux’s latest mixtape. Titled “HalloweenTown“, Kick gives listeners almost 30 mins of high energy tracks with contributions from Major Lazer, Kranium, Future, Michael Jackson and more! Break out the costumes (If you’re into that kind of thing…), grab some candy and rock out to this mix. Check out the mixtape below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
