London dancehall crew and longtime Discobelle comrades The Heatwave presents all you runners out there with a very special treat, “The Ultimate Running Mix”.

“We specially picked tunes that are great for working out to. Put in your headphones, turn up the volume and get motivated. Whether you’re in the gym, on your bike or even just having a brisk walk. Listen to this twice a week and we guarantee you’ll run faster than Usain Bolt within six months.”

BONUS: A RDX refix made on a boat in Croatia during their Hot Wuk gig at Outlook Festival this summer, featuring current dancehall smash “Jump” by RDX, summer shots from Gappy Ranks and Cham & O, Tony Matterhorn’s crossover hit “Dutty Wine”, Natasja’s raving classic “Calabria” and soca favourite “Roll It Gal” by Alison Hinds.

The Heatwave’s dancehall filled mixes have helped me do things I never thought possible – staying up 59 consecutive hours working on a ten foot tall tornado replica for a Canadian museum while solely listening to Heatwave mixes, for example.

Maybe it’s because they excel at seamlessly blending dancehall refixes of pop staples, or maybe it has something to do with their effortless bridging of Jamacian produced vibes with a UK bashment tinged edge.

Whatever it is that’s responsible for the magic they’ve been weaving in their mixes, it comes out in full force here – brimming with exclusives from Vybz Kartel, a new Sticky & Ms. Dynamite collaboration, and a multitude of tropical riddims to give spring the final needed push to just become summer already.
