Hardhouse Banton "Reign (Roska's 'Ard Food Remix)"
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
The original version of Hardhouse Banton's "Reign" surfaced in 2008, back when most of us were still saying, "UK funky? They're really calling this genre just 'funky'?" Nonetheless, the track's tropical percussion, garage-like shuffle, and flirtation with house music helped set the blueprint for what has become a global movement. The song obviously has staying power, as earlier today UK funky heavyweight Roska gave away his own remix of "Reign" for free via Twitter. Roska's version features his patented kicks and snares, and also inserts a little more space into the track, giving it a sexier, less manic vibe. At this rate, we all might be hearing "Reign" for another two years, and that's just fine with us.
