Tim Westwood’s Reggae, Dub & Classic Hip-Hop Vinyl Weighs A Ton (Video)
To younger Heads, Tim Westwood may be known for his wild enthusiasm during guest-stops from the likes of Eminem, Drake, and Jay Z. However, the London-based BBC DJ has nearly 30 years rooted in bridging the gap and crossing the oceans in making Hip-Hop, Reggae, Dancehall, Dub, and House mixes. Tim, also a top-notch party DJ, is known for helping American artists cultivate audiences in Europe that allow touring sustainability even today.
Fuse’s Crate Diggers travels to Westwood’s lab, to observe the staggering collection of records he maintains. Tim shows his travel-cases, still filled with party-stoppers, his impressive Dub and Reggae collections, and his strong affinity for the Prism label, responsible for early Marley Marl/Juice Crew productions (and the not-so-memorable music career of Alfonso Ribeiro).
