Leading the charge in Japan's thriving bass music scene, PART2STYLE is the country's most respected reggae crew. Although primarily recognized for their uninhibited dancehall predilections, the sound system is also known to mix in healthy doses of grime, jungle and drum & bass into their high-energy sets. On the strength of their unique dubplates and original productions, PART2STYLE have been featured at some of the world's biggest festivals and nightclubs.
The crew are also the brains behind the popular riddim label Future Ragga, which features acclaimed recordings with renowned artists such as Daddy Freddy, Tippa Irie, Solo Banton, Charlie P and Mr. Williamz (just to name a few). Over the last few years, the imprints' tunes have become firm favourites with radio stations and sound systems all over. Back home, PART2STYLE are also famed for winning the WAR DUB JAPAN CUP - a prestigious grime sound clash.
Next week, PART2STYLE returns to town for Singapura Dub Club's exciting four-day extravaganza called Soul Island Singapura. The Japanese crew will be headlining their kick-off event - BASSment SOUL at Kilo Lounge on Thursday, 31 March. But before then, we invited PART2STYLE to create this week's wicked Bandwagon Mix.

Every week, Bandwagon invites a guest to do a mix for us. Rather than a standard interview where the artist explains their influences, we figured it’d be more potent if you simply listened to the music.
We provide the context, they provide the sounds.
