Stalag > Stagalag

There have been some great relicks of old rhythms this year and you may think that another version of Stalag (AKA Stagalag) is unlikely to top these, but the new version by Shane Brown’s Juke Boxx records is threatening to do just that. Check the mix below for samples of some of the cuts, there are lots of singers here which is no bad thing, the cuts by Busy Signal, G Whizz, Bugle, Tarrus Riley and Romain Virgo all look really strong.

This is expected to be available digitally shortly, no news of vinyl issues. Thanks to Dancehall Mobi for the heads up.

  • Stagalag seems to be almost as good as Zion Gate and Rebellion 2010. Another nice relick is the new version of Boops riddim by Jukeboxx productions. Nice cuts by Romain Virgo, Tarrus Riley and Chino.

    Thanks Erik – I hadn’t heard the Boops version (I slept on a recent version of Duck rhythm too even though Busy Signal’s cut was really good). Maybe a round up of all recent re-licks would be in order.

    Are there any others I should look at? Please leave comments…

  • Can’t recall any brand new relicks apart from those mentioned and those you’ve written about lately.

    French crew Irie Ites has done a version of Su Su Pon Rasta though. This was released in March. Vocals by Naggo Morris and Trinity. The riddim is very close to the original. Same crew has also done redone Strange Things and done a very good job IMO. This was last year though.

    Nas & Damian Marley have a version of Land of Promise by Dennis Brown/Love Fire by Aswad on the new album Distant Relatives. Tough version.

    I’ll see if I can dig out anything else.
