Selecta J-Man & Blackout JA - Dancehall Extravaganza EP [Born On Road]
Release Date June 25th 2018
Label Born On Road
Roll up, roll up... the Dancehall Extravaganza is coming to town. Selecta J-Man & Blackout JA have pulled out all the stops to make an EP influenced by classic Dancehall in a UK Jungle style. These 4 tracks of fire make for a fitting follow up to Selecta J-Man’s Super Sharp Mixtape released back in April 2018.
The title track ‘Dancehall Extravaganza’ features record breaker Daddy Freddy on the hook delivering maximum syllables per second over a heavy Ragga Drum & Bass workout.
Next up a collaborative effort between J-Man, Aries, Blackout, & legendary Jamaican vocalist Courtney Melody. ‘Ninja Mi Ninja’ 2018 Jungle mix is an instant reload.
‘Unite’ warms in with the bassline from Stalag Riddim complimented by some nice dubbed out piano. On vocals Blackout JA is joined by Raphael for the ultimate juxtaposition of rough and smooth.
The last track of the EP may very likely be the first to reach the sound system ‘The Takeover’ they welcome in half a football team to represent: Da Fuchaman, YT, Rev Monks Man, Raphael and Solo Banton all take turns to toast over J-Man’s take of the Entertainment Riddim.
