DJ Wade Reggae Mixtapes

DJ Wade “Reggae Mixtapes”

DJ Wade first appeared on the airwaves bringing sizzling Jamaican music to tepid St. Louis. With a weekly radio show on KWUR 90.3FM, he offered a brave and nuanced collection of reggae, ska, dancehall, rocksteady, dub and roots records. Having toured the US for two years with Isaac Green and the Skalars, DJ Wade amassed an impressive archive of set lists and recordings, DJing clubs in every state as he crawled cross-country.

Recently, a secret box of old tapes was unearthed in his folks’ New Jersey garage, and are now available as podcasts. With the growing popularity of vintage Wade and over 1M downloads, new episodes are here. In the meantime, fans can get their fix of DJ Wade’s more recent twist on reggae with original reggae music from WonderSound.

WonderSound’s own Peter Wade will be swapping out his position behind the board for an evening behind the decks with fellow DJ’s Small Change, Preservation, Duane Harriott and Alec D. The night will feature only 45RPM vinyl, no serrato and no CDs.

Come see how it used to be done.
