i had this fantastic new Darkstar tune as hi-rez, so i opted to crunch it down to 100kbps but WOW, this duo (?) does the melancholic-dubstep thing exquisitely. Mining a rich vein:

there’s a great comp of hiplife out: Black Stars: Ghana’s hiplife generation

amazing stuff on here – highlife ragga hybrid bizness with enough sweet sung choruses to keep even the most demanding Akon fan happy. My favorite track was remixed by a white German dude who calls himself Red:

Tony Harmony ft. Triple M – My Body (Selectah Red RMX)
