Celebrating 50 years of Jamaican raving in the UK

Jack it up selector! The Heatwave cram the biggest UK hits to come out of Jamaica into one crazy mix: 50 years + 83 tunes x 73 minutes = approximately five million rewinds. These songs have been pulled up, wheeled, rewound and replayed literally MILLIONS of times - in bedrooms, house parties, blues dances, nightclubs and raves throughout the UK.

To celebrate 50 years of Jamaican independence, The Heatwave’s quickfire insanity-inducing DJ style is applied to half a century’s worth of classic tracks. 50 years of Jamaican sounds hyping UK ravers. How many times will you rewind this mix?
