Feeling Irie!?! How bout some Reggae, Dub, Dancehall, Rocksteady, Psychedelic Rastafunk, and Breaks to massage your Soul? Let us help ya work it out! Night Fever! VOL V The Reggae Edition focuses on our love for Rastafari movement, explores the depths of the DC-Austin connection and celebrates the release of Wax Poetic's Reggae Issue 43! Soul of the Boot Entertainment and StrangeTribe Productions are proud to bring you Washington DC based Fort Knox Recordings artist Nappy Riddem! This duo consist of Rex Riddem and Mustafa Akbar, two worldwide party rockin' Rastars!
Mustafa Akbar a.k.a Mustabar is known for his flavorful marriage of City Slicker with Country Charm that affords him his distinct sound. His sound; an exotic, soulful blend of sophisticated edgy rock, mixed with hip-hop flavored funk, allows an effortlessly flow between the many musical projects he is a part of: electro funk band, Fort Knox Five (Fort Knox Recordings), reggae soul collaboration: Nappy Riddem (Fort Knox Recordings) and Thunderball (ESL Music).
Rex Riddem is a Washington DC based DJ, producer, and percussionist known for his ability to traverse local and time through his eclectic tastes in music. Rex started DJing in the electronic dance scene. With over 15 years experience in the industry, Rex has played clubs and concert halls throughout the U.S. as well as across the globe. He has spread his mix of classic mash-ups, ragga breaks, latin funk, and electro to Brasil, Russia, Portugal, Hawaii, St. John, Mexico, and across the continental U.S. including Las Vegas where he held an eight month residency at Mandalay Bay.
Here's a taste of their LIVE set with Asheru, Fort Knox Five and members of Thievery Corporation
