If you heard The Heatwave’s England Story DJ mix for the Bloggariddims podcast you’ll no doubt be excited to hear that the Soul Jazz record label is about to release the tracks from the mix as an album.
From the Soul Jazz Records website:
An England Story – The Culture of the MC in the UK 1983-2008. Featuring a who’s who of the stars of UK Dancehall/Grime/Hip-Hop/Jungle over the last 25 years up to the present. Roots Manuva, Papa Levi, Stush, General Levy, Estelle, London Posse, Tenor Fly… and the list goes on! Double CD plus 2 Volumes of super-loud double vinyl – this is a killer album…
This release is gonna be absolutely wicked. So needless to say, I was beyond honored when The Heatwave asked me to provide a remix for the 12-inch single featuring Warrior Queen. The original track, called Things Change, features The Heatwave’s Piano Riddim underneath the Queen’s bubbling vocals. The single features that version along with the Piano instrumental and my remix, and will be released ahead of the album, next Monday, Feb 18.
In honor of that release I’ve worked up a couple remixes of my remix for your downloading pleasure:
