This Mixtape was the perfect trip down memory lane for an 80s baby like me. It brought me back to the good old days of listening to Notorious B.I.G., Tupac, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg while driving around Kingston with my Uncle.
Carnival 2016 is well on the horizon so you know that means loads of new Soca hits to usher any Socaphile into the season. Shane Talon is another 13thStreetPromotions find and I think his mixes are simply superb. This one is no different.
Recently, the “Dancehall Mermaid“ Tifa stopped by the Nightly Fix studios to have a chat. Hosted by DJ Naro and Arianne, Tifa spoke about her “Stay Away” Mixtape and the inspiration behind it, wanting change in the Dancehall scene, rising above challenges, urging artists to get more music on the Billboard charts, and more. Tifa brought up some great points during her Interview and I do hope the artists that are listening take notes. She also gave us a few bars and if you want to hear more, Tifa’s “Stay Away” Mixtape is available here for a quick download/listen.

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.
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.
If you’re a person who lives to envy others, tear down your fellow man, and own an evil heart? This Mixtape is not for you. While holding her place as one of the top tier Dancehall Artists over the years, Tifa has experienced the good times, and has faced many challenges. With the booth being her outlet, she recorded the “Stay Away” Mixtape. Mixed by ZJ Chrome, Tifa warns that this is not for everyone, and she may offend many. Armed with lyrics and the heart of a Warrior, get ready for a Tifa you’ve never heard before. Never one to back down, Tifa shows that her tenure as an Artist is not over and she has many rounds left. Not for those under the age of 18. Check out the Mixtape below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
