Club Contact

The new MP3 blog from London's club Contact. The idea is to allow people to hear new music they wouldn't have otherwise found but, if anyone has any copyright issues with a particular song, i'll take the link down. Songs are only available for a limited amount of time.

It's not uncommon for dozens of new Jamaican singles to all feature the same backing track. This year's defining sound has been the incredible Bionic Ras riddim orchestrated by Orlando Florida's ex-pat South Rakkas Crew which has been adopted by everyone from Bounty Killer to So Solid. Listening to the deceptively simple mix of dancehall, soca and techno, it's easy to see what an influence the new breed of electro-reggae has been on the likes of M.I.A and Jahcoozi. Arguably the finest variation is Capleton's Long Time, The Prophet's plea to call time on the recent spate of complicated solo routines and get women and men dancing together again.
