‘Reggae Meets Rap’ mix now available

DJ and producer RICHIE BLOOD has put forward a brand new mix full of tracks that are either rap-inspired reggae or reggae-inspired rap.

While it’s often difficult to tell the difference, ‘Reggae Meets Rap’ explores how these two styles of music have been fused together over the years.

Coincidently, on the same day of release, LargeUp has published an article “10 Caribbean Hip-Hop Pioneers”. Their list includes DJ KOOL HERC, GRANDMASTER FLASH and FAB FIVE FREDDY among the top 10.
