The Ras Collection Men’s Apparel line has launched a new mixtape series showcasing the work of some of today’s top reggae selectors. The series highlights the selector dubplate - an exclusive unreleased version of a recording specific to a sound or deejay.
Their first edition, The Ras Collection Dubplate Series Volume 1, is a 15 track compilation mixed by Belizean DJ and producer, DJ Rampage Global of Rampage Sound Global, featuring dubplates from artists who’ve paved the way for reggae music including Warrior King, Half Pint, to the late Frankie Paul. The mix is represented by reggae revival influencers such as one of Ras Collection’s first ambassadors, Protoje alongside Jesse Royal, Tarrus Riley, Mr. Vegas and more.
Siann Marlowe, the Creative Director for the menswear apparel line fused together the sound system culture and apparel by creating the Ras Collection DJ Turntable T-shirt to pair with the collaboration. When purchased, part of the proceeds of the t-shirt go to a notable charity.
Marlowe recently caught up with DJ Rampage Global, who is a well known tour DJ for Ms. Lauryn Hill and is considered to be one of the most versatile DJ’s in the world. She learned how he acquired such skills mostly from his uncle, Stone Jam, of Belize. Click here to watch the interview and check DJ Rampage Global’s technique on the turn tables.
