Puuulll UP! More ace sounds coming straight from the heart of Europe via JA! Dreadsquads blends and Radikal Guru's remix of 'Caravan' have been on JSTAR DJ rotation and now comes more wickedness out of the musical fire!!!!
J*Star / London, UK
Dreadsquad brings some nice vibes to the dancefloor with this fresh remake of answer riddim and the collaboration of Ward21 making an ode to the reggae musicality. On B side Lady Chann put reality lyrics over an up-tempo and skanking rhythm proving there is some intelligent life in dancehall still. Well done production by Dreadsquad and remixes by many guests keep the same level.
Marcus MPC / DigitalDubs / Brazil
Slick as ever productions from the Dreadsquad camp - uplifting vibes that will nice up any dance, with a deadly selection of remixes to boot.
Ben Menter / Mr Benn aka Mr Blennd / Bristol, UK
Many thanks Dreadsquad - heavy sounds!! I think the Turntable Dubbers mix will get the most plays from me - really nice vibe on it. The Pixel mix of the Ward 21 tune is pure Old Skool jungle too - love it!!
Jon Sheppard / DJ Shepdog / Nice Up! Records / London, UK

Ward 21 (Kingston / Jamaica) is a group of four creative, lyrical and multi-talented individuals, consisting of musicians, engineers, sound system operators and producers who had a sound and approach to music unlike anything heard at the time.
It was legendary music producer King Jammy himself, that had the insight and saw the potential in these young men from Waterhouse. He brought Mark Mean Dog Henry, Andre Suku Gray, Ranaldo Rumblood Evans and Kunley McCarthy together and gave them a platform to express themselves musically. They called the group, Ward 21, subsequently the name of the Psychiatric Ward at The University Hospital in Kingston, Jamaica.
The group has since gone on to creating many number one hits like Haters , Rhyme, No Apologies, and Garrsion among countless others. They have toured extensively world wide, sold many records, gained thousands of dedicated fans globally and have acclaimed international success and recognition for their work.
Lady Chann (London / UK) has been part of North West London’s vibrant Suncycle crew since it’s conception, and now she's branching out alone, and bringing her unique talent to a wider audience.
Well schooled in reggae music from an early age by her soundman father, the rhythms of Studio One, Trojan and Treasure Isle soundtracked her childhood. Chanelle’s mother recognised her keen musical interest from an early age and encouraged her to take up piano, flute, trombone, french horn and even the drums, alongside the singing lessons that set her on the path.
Fast forward to 2009 and Chann has been deep in the studio with some of the UK's hottest producers, working on tracks for her debut album. She worked with South Rakkas, Todla T, Warrior One and Sticky.
Live, Lady Chann is a force to be reckoned with. Having served her apprenticeship as part London's premier dancehall crew she is a true microphone controller, her husky voice and trademark flow setting her apart from the pack, and tearing up the hottest clubs across the UK and beyond.
Dreadsquad (Lodz / Poland) is a project aimed at expanding Jamaican culture. They played hundreds of parties in Poland, all around Europe (Portugal, England, Scotland, Holland, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Lithuania) also in USA and Canada (NY, Miami, Chicago, Toronto).
Their sets, mixed on 2 gramophones, are fusion of dancehall, mash ups, ragamuffin, reggae with some electronic influences. Except playing parties they produce music as well.
As far they have released 4 mixtapes, 2 full-length producers albums, one 12” single (Caravan Remixes) and two 12” vinyl records with their mash ups and remixes (PLay that Blend) which you can find in record cases of Djs such as J Star, Upstate Rockers, Mr Blennd or Daddy G [Massive Attack]. Two of their mash ups were bootlegged and released as 7” single.
