Boomshots and Mix Master J Presents – The Baba Mix-A Father’s Day Playlist

Boomshots and Mix Master J Presents - The Baba Mix-A Father's Day Playlist

The Official 2018 Father’s Day Playlist for Boomshots Magazine 

In 2015, Boomshots Magazine premiered a multi-genre playlist of songs, entitled “Dada Playlist,” which included songs from reggae, hip hop, gospel, dub, rhythm & blues and jazz, dedicated to fathers.  This year, the magazine’s staff took on the challenge of creating a “strictly reggae” playlist dedicated to Fathers. We also took into consideration, the readers request to make the playlist accessible through a music application. We recruited one of the Top Tier dee-jays out of London, Mix Master J, the brother of reggae legend, Shinehead (Kingston 12), to add his expertise in sound mastery. The result is the “Baba Mix,” a unique reggae and Father- themed playlist.  Baba means father in Ki-Swahili and this mix considers various aspects of “The Father.” The mix begins and ends with reverence to the Almighty Father with songs like Buju Banton -“Our Father,” AJ Brown- “Father Friend, ” Luciano- “Father I Love Thee” and two Dennis Emmanuel Brown selections. The playlist then addresses the importance of the Father’s role in society, with songs like Konshens-“Original Daddy,” Jahmiel-“Real Father,” and Christopher Martin- “Just Like You.”  The juxtaposition of songs discussing a Father’s sex appeal such as Buju Banton-“Stamina Daddy” and the father-in-charge, with songs like Supercat – “Don Dadda” and Johnny Osbourne- “Dancehall Daddy,” adds playfulness to the mix. We sincerely hope that this will be a memorable Father’s Day Playlist for all who listen to it. Playlist After The Jump…

WATCH THIS: Bushman Pon Radio Lily

The Nyah Man Nices Up The Strictly Boomshots Show And Teaches Us Some Useful New Words


On last night’s Strictly Boomshots show we were joined by the Man From the East himself—Bushman. The artist formerly known as Junior Melody is one of the most under-rated talents in the reggae fraternity, as well as an all-around irie person. He doesn’t flood the market with tunes, but when he comes he comes correct. Bushy is getting ready to drop a new album this November called Conquering Lion, and we got a chance to check out the new single “Some Where” plus a whole heap of other fresh cuts, sprinkled with a portion of classics—from “Call The Hearse” to “Fire Bun A Weakheart” and more—not to mention a Peter Tosh medley complete with a rousing rendition of “Bumbo Clat.” Video by the man called Gizmo after the jump.
