Our next Truancy Volume comes from Swiss producer WILDLIFE! whose ability on effortlessly mixing and combining dancehall and electronic music has garnered him huge support from the likes of Diplo, Sinden and L-Vis 1990 to many other musical connoisseurs. Having founded the now revered dancehall soundsystem Gold Rush International at the tender age of 19, he went on to record numerous dubplates with a range of dancehall and reggae legends such as Beenie Man, Bounty Killer, Beres Hammond and Vybz Kartel. Adopting the WILDLIFE! moniker in 2008 he produced numerous tracks for Terry LynnÕs album Kingstonlogic 2.0, which was received to critical acclaim, and he subsequently went on tour with her. Having hit even bigger in 2009 with the inescapable catchy anthem “Jumbie”, the track even got the attention of Nike who used it to soundtrack their “Nike Trackbike Football” video. With such a great list of achievements, it only felt right to catch up with him and ask for a mixtape so without further ado we present you volume number twenty-seven, a fifty minute mix showcasing the very best of dancehall and forthcoming tracks by the likes of Dr. Gonzo, TRRBO, Diplo, Douster and Terry Lynn.
