Gabriel Heatwave
Musical Bare Dancehall Mix Part 2
The second dancehall mix recorded for the Musical Bear site by Heatwave's Gabriel, dusted off and rehosted here on Spannered for your enjoyment
Gabriel's December 2004 Musical Bare Dancehall Mix was downloaded thousands of times from the Musicalbear site. Twelve months on the DJ from the Heatwave collective returned with another selection of some of the hottest dancehall tunes around at the time.

The mix opens with a few of Gabriel's own blends on the massive, funked-up Doosra riddim, a production from Manchester's Spybase. The instrumental is blended with some classic 90s ragga vocals and a single from Ms Thing, plus the acapella from Sunshine, the first release on Heatwave’s own label, Scandal Bag.

Following on are extended version excursions on one of the latest Dave Kelly productions, Bad Gal and the Coolie Dance-esque Kopa riddim. Other featured rhythms include the squelchy, electro sounds of Phantom and Strip Tease, the dark 'n' dirty Dancehall Rock and the decidedly non-dancehall funk of Money Juggling, plus a bit of soca niceness, sizzling ska from Sizzla and a Heatwave remix on the collective's own bootleg label, Punchline.
Mixed by Gabriel on two Technics 1210s & a Numark mixer
Mastered by Daddy Henry @ Dub Studio, Bristol
Intro by Quality Diamond
