Legendary heavyweight Dancehall producer King ‘Lloyd James’ Jammy’s joined me in studio to talk about his game changing 80′s record productions. Have you ever wondered how the ‘Slengteng’ or the ‘Punnarny’ riddims were created? How did he keep Shabba Ranks, Ninjaman & Bounty Killer in line?

Premier Dancehall DJ ROBBO RANX has announced his Summer 2013 UK Festival Tour.
Under the banner of “THIS IS DANCEHALL”, Ranx will be showcasing his skills across the UK & Europe, bringing the cream of the dancehall sound to big festival crowds.
Kicking off with the legendary GLASTONBURY Festival in June (which will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra), then moving onto the JUICY BEATS Festival in Dortmund, Germany, into a busy August which features both BOOMTOWN & ONE LOVE Festivals in the UK followed by Spain’s critically acclaimed ROTOTOM and concluding with the inaugural LIVERPOOL INTERNATIONAL MUSIC Festival in the North West of the UK.
Robbo said, “I’m very proud to have the opportunity to play the music I love to a wide and varied set of audiences across Europe – I feel the time is right to showcase the strength and depth of this music and I’m looking forward to making people party hard throughout the summer”
Ranx’s show on BBC Radio 1Xtra has become a mainstay for dancehall music in the UK – the award winning show has been on air since the inception of the station in 2002, and regularly attracts the biggest names in the genres as guests.
His club and event DJ work continues to take him across the globe, and his ambassadorial status within the genre is reinforced by the acclaim of his radio & TV work supporting Dancehall and Jamaican culture.
