  • 13. Chaka Demus & Pliers - The Boom

Featuring some of the biggest names from both the Reggae and Hip-Hop worlds such as Kenny Dope, Sean Paul, Tenor Saw, Chaka Demus and Pliers alongside current Jamaican Dancehall artists such as Ward 21 and Ms Thing. The connection between Hip-Hop and Reggae begins in New York when the Jamaican Kool Herc moved there and in the mid-70s laid the foundations for the arrival of Hip-Hop. With two turntables and a microphone, Kool Herc (and later Grandmaster Flash, also of Jamican descent) took the elements of Jamaican Dancehall and DJ culture and invented Hip-Hop. Ever since this point, artists have been aware of this relationship- from Kenny Dope making music with some of the finest MCs from the New York dancehall scene (including a young Shaggy) to current Jamaican Dancehall artists re-inventing US Rap and R’n’B. "Nice Up The Dance" brings all these elements together along with classic anthems like the definitive Dancehall version of Dawn Penn’s "No No No", Sean Paul’s classic "Infiltrate"and Tenor Saw’s rare Hip-Hop mix of "Ring The Alarm" as well as underground UK Reggae/Hip-Hop (Singer Blue), current NY Hip-Hop from J-Live and Cutty Rank’s party classic "Who Say Me Dun".
