A Blend of Mashups w/ Undercover

I was thinking the other day how I ain't heard a good mash-up in a while. Over our ways it was all the rage and the staple of any good DJ was the party starting reggae 7" bootlegs from the likes of Jstar, Heatwave, Interstate and Primetime. But they soon became few and far between (the good ones anyway), I guess they just got left behind as reggae from JA turned on and dancehall became the go-to party music. Jump forward 3-4 years and we still have vocals from Rihanna and MIA, we still have The Heatwave, Soulforce and Jstar, but the rocksteady and reggae riddims have been left behind and the dial has just been turned up a fair few notches with bangin' dancehall riddims straight inna daggering Major Lazer vibe. Well and truly Mashed Up! For old times sake, I've included some of my all time favourite blends in this mix - Tupac and Alton will never get old ya' hear! Mash it up!
