An England Story

mp3: The Heatwave - An England Story (Mix)

Bah. Trøtt i trynet. Sjekk ut mixen. UK. Reggae. Dancehall. Hip hop.

An official compilation version of this mix was released in March 2008 by Soul Jazz Records on double CD and quadruple vinyl. The mix itself was originally recorded for the Blogariddims podcast series.

We've always had an interest in local talent and from when we started buying records in the '90s we were drawn to rappers like Blak Twang, Rodney P and Roots Manuva, whose lyrics described life in urban Britain and made reference to the peculiarities of British culture. The received wisdom then was that MCing could only be done well by Americans and at the time many UK rappers seemed compelled to adopt mid-Atlantic accents. We felt, and still feel, that one of the best ways in which British MCs can really and fashion their own identity was and is to draw on the unique relationship that the UK has with the Caribbean.
