Swedish dancehall/reggae warriors in Safari Sound have been around since before Discobelle started, with relentless performances whether it be dj-sets, club nights, radio shows or mixes they have cemented themselves at the forefront of the worldwide soundsystem scene. Their latest and mighty mixtape “Word, Sound And Power Vol. 1″ transfers us straight into summer mode.

Our friends in Malmö/Stockholm based soundsystem Safari Sound are over in Japan and from our personal experience of their shows they are on a mission that is bound to destroy dancefloors all over the land of the rising sun.

The good folks in Safari Sound together with Petter and Red Stripe brings us “A Reggae Christmas” (reprise from last year but still just as good and very much needed for the holidays).

“It all started a few weeks ago when we had an “early Caribbean Christmas lunch” with the godfather of Swedish rap, Petter. Petter is a big fan of Safari Sound mixtapes and he wondered if we would be interested in doing a mixtape project together with him and Red Stripe. This is the result: nearly an hour of “reggae Christmas classics” mixed by DJ Shirkhan and Sammy K. Give thanx for the idea and opportunity Petter and big up Red Stripe, Crazy Youths and The Soul Lounge.

We wish ya’ll a Merry Reggae Christmas and A Dancehall New Year!”

God Jul from the Discobelle crew!

Safari Sound giving us a chance to hear how massive their live sets are, enjoy!

“Recently lots of people have asked for live recordings from Safari dances. We have to admit that recording dances is not something we have prioritized during the years, but this will change in the future!

We gonna start with giving you this audio from one of the wickedest parties we played at this summer. The club is called Colors and it is Swedens baddest party concept, argument dun! Safari Sound was honored to be the first dancehall act at this club as they book DJ´s and live acts who represent all kind of genres. So we gotta give a shout out to or good friend DJ Dainja who is the brain and muscle behind Colors, a special big up to Red Fox who was headlining this event and delivered one wicked live performance and last but not least big up the Gothenbourg massive who always gives nuff energy and love.

Here goes nearly one hour of hardcore jugglin with mainly new dancehall, spiced up with some classics and dubs. DJ Shirkhan on the turntables and Sammy K on the mic

A video summary from the party:

According to Safari Sound, summer is not over yet and after hearing this mix we’re inclined to agree.

“Last year around this time we gave you Summer Nuh Dun Yet vol. l (http://tinyurl.com/3mc9pnv).

Although the summer was over, all of a sudden the sun decided to show up and bless us with some vitamin D. Since the weather in Sweden is very unreliable, we were not surprised. We thought that the same thing would happen this year, but of course it didn’t. However since our summer has been beautiful with lots of sun, that summer spirit is still there so we decided to give you Summer Nuh Dun Yet vol. ll

It is a one drop mix with some of the biggest reggae anthems this summer, some new bangers that most certainly will top the charts within a short period of time and as always it is spiced up with some dubs and xklusifs.”
