This Saturday, the UK’s premiere dancehall & bashment crew The Heatwave invades Vancouver’s Waldorf Hotel for a special night of vibes from Jamaica via England – you can buy advance tickets online here. Earlier this week they posted their new TNGHT refix riddim, which is a basically a mash-up of TNGHT‘s “Higher Ground,” Mr Lexx‘s vocals from Major Lazer‘s “Hold The Line” and vocals from Nikisha – a well executed flirtation with the intriguing middle ground between trap and dancehall.
Gabriel from The Heatwave forwarded me this new mix of theirs as a promo for the tour, I’ve uploaded it to soundcloud & made it downloadable so you can throw it on your phone or iPod, I highly recommend it. I also recommend following The Heatwave on soundcloud, facebook, twitter, vimeo & checking out their website here.
Otherwise I’ll leave you with a video taken over their recent Hot Wuk tour around the different boroughs of London, just in case you’re not quite sure what to expect from The Heatwave. There is also a Chapel Sound Takeover presented by Cherchez La Femme happening in the Hideaway room at the Waldorf that night, featuring Falcons, Kline, HeadSPace, Autem among many others – check for the poster & link after the jump.
