To celebrate the summer and the first season of our show, we asked one of my favorite edit specialists for a DJ mix – and J*Star delivered a stunner of a reggae selection!
Back in the early 2000s, those precious J*Star vinyls hardly ever left my crates. So many great remixes and edits of rap and r&b classics inna reggae stylee that never failed to raise spirits and hands on the dancefloor. So when we founded the Riddim Box crew in 2011, we already had the idea to invite the man to DJ at one of our parties.
He finally made it to our night at the Roxy in October 2012, and I hardly remember anything of it once we opened that bottle of Wray & Nephew rum he had asked us to get for him. What I do recall is that he played a great set with lots of reggae vibes. And that’s why he was one of the first we wrote to for a DJ mix on our new show on 674.fm!
Here’s the show with the 1 hour mix – if you came only for the reggae, skip to 29.20 m.
