Ragga Juke Invasion

 Over the past 2-3 years, much ink has been spilled about a genre known in Chicago as Juke / Footwork. The music has been popping up in sets from many of the trailblazing crews in the US and the UK, making the Windy City once again a hot spot to electronic music fans worldwide and it started adopting to other music, We Riddim Chango FM features "Ragga Juke" tunes to cerebrate a happy meeting of our Reggae and Juke/Footwork music.

Chrissy Murderbot / Braaain

The biggest Dancehall/Juke Anthem used all time monster riddim Sleng-Teng. built by Chrissy Muedebot who first started adopting Juke to Reggae in my knowledge.

Chrissy Murderbot / Nice Looking Boy ( Feat. Mungo's Hi-Fi & Warrior Queen )

Most of juke produces don't make happy side of Juke music but this Chicago based producer remixed Mungo's Hi-Fi & Warrior Queen's dancehall as happy and hard-party Juke tune.

Capleton / Slew Dem Sinistarr Remix

Capleton's big dancehall hit was remixed by Detroit based producer Sinistarr.
Interesting production starts Jungle then it becomes Juke in the middle, ends killer.


DJ Roc / One Blood

Sampled Junior Ried's roots big tune "One Blood" his vocal is chopped as much as it sounds killer roots Juke.

Chase / Leatherface

another crazy vocal-chopping production, this French Juke producer sampled the most known reggae classic Max Romeo / Chase The Devil, whole tune is covered by chopped one phraze, snares and heavy bass.

Paisleyparks / Chase

Also avobe, Japanese Ghetto Bass Unit sampled Max Romeo / Chase The Devil. it's electric magic.

Tippa Irie & Daddy Colonel / Once Again ( E-mura Remix )

E-mura ( PART2STYLE ) is Japan based Future-Ragga producer, this is not straight defined Juke but snares inlaid production sounds influence by juke music, result brilliant future ragga classic.
