Tonight, cherry-haired global dancehall empress Natalie Storm is hosting this month’s Rice and Peas party downtown at Happy Ending. She’s staying in town through Thursday to keep celebrating today’s release of her Songs 2 F@#k and Fight 2 mixtape with Brooklyn/Philly based Federation Sound (party details after the jump!). The tape backs Natalie with a whole-world barrage of classic riddims, soca, grime and classic NY house. She vamps them all, sounding conditioned and at-home in all modes. Taste test the pum pum-ed house track “Wicked” and DJ Fashen’s remix of the classic “Bam Bam” riddim here, then download Songs 2 F@#k and Fight 2 as a folder of individual tracks or a continuous mix from Federation Sound. We’re gonna take the latter option and gulp the whole thing down while pretending it’s not snowing and choreographing the Kim Ann Foxman/Natalie Storm fashion house video collabo in our sunshine minds.
