Off The Chain

Artist:DJ Shepdog
Title:Greatest Rewinds EP
Label:Off The Chain
After blowing up the reggae mash-up scene with his very first release back in 2006, DJ Shepdog has quickly established himself as a dancefloor connessieur mixing up hip hop, reggae, drum & bass and whatever else fits the bill of "Righteous Party Vibes". Now a firm favourite at festivals such as Glastonbury, Bestival, Big Chill, Outlook and many more, he can also regularly be found playing at clubs across the UK & Europe. Unfortunately many of Shep's early releases are now unavailable on vinyl as they were only every pressed in very limited quantities (some often fetch a handsome price on eBay & Discogs!) so we thought it was time to give them another lease of life on fat wax! "Bigger Than Jamrock" was Shepdog's first ever single and his calling card for future mash-ups that never fail to get a reaction on the dancefloor. Long since deleted it is now made available on vinyl for the first time in 5 years. "Ganja" is a remix that he was commissioned by Rob Da Bank for the Dub Pistols, which has never been issued on vinyl. Over on the flip is a dancehall inspired take on some classic party hip hop that should also get the hands in the air, only ever available on the "Cut Ups, Muck Ups & Bruck Ups" CD. The EP is finished off by something a little bit deeper, using his old mate Jstar's brilliant "One Life riddim" and spicing it up with some timeless NY MCs, again never available on vinyl before now!
