My 2011 UK Reggae/Dancehall Wrap Up

2012 has arrived and everyone is busy talking about their New Years Resolutions, how they're going to make this year better than the last one, and how 2012 is their year. So with everyone being busy looking back at 2011, I wanted to look back on the Reggae/Dancehall scene in the UK. Whilst there are a number of DJ's and sounds that are supporting the scene, there was one particular radio show that really and truly wrapped it all up for me. This show was presented by Robbo Ranx on BBC's 1xtra and featured the UK's finest Reggae personalities of the moment; Gappy Ranks, Christopher Ellis, Stylo G, Lea Anna, Juvinile, Curtis Lynch and Wundah!

Whilst I believe that your 7 days to listen back to the full show on the 1Xtra website has elapsed, there are two freestyles featured below showing the talent, versatile nature and strength of the current UK Reggae scene. With things already looking very promising, it has to be said that if 2011 is anything to go by, we can only wonder what they have in store for us in 2012...
