Moscow protesters learn rules of engagement in training sessions | AFP

The truncheons are made of plastic, but the scene playing out in central Moscow with protesters chanting anti-Kremlin slogans and the riot police seizing them one by one looks only too realistic. Alexander Archagov, a psychologist and rights activist, is holding a training session that aims to teach opposition protesters how to stand up for their rights as police clear streets of demonstrators. The training session is responding to the current wave of protests, one of the largest since President Vladimir Putin’s return to the Kremlin in 2012.

John Holt – Ali Baba (Saxxon Remix)

Buy or stream ‘Various Artists – Jet Star Meets Hospital’ here: https://HospitalRecords.lnk.to/JetStaryc

The world of classic reggae, dancehall and bashment collides with drum & bass for a set of stellar remixes on the ‘Jet Star Meets Hospital’ compilation. The album features sixteen first-class reworks from London Electricity, S.P.Y, Danny Byrd, Nu:Tone, Urbandawn and more; all taking a 170BPM step-out on iconic reggae artists such as Barrington Levy, Alton Ellis, John Holt, Beenie Man, Horace Andy and more.

From dancehall classic to dancefloor banger, Hospital mainstay and esteemed soul-selector Nu:Tone applies his production savviness to Barrington Levy’s seminal reggae anthem, ‘Here I Come’. Stimulated from the ground up with a warm, rolling bassline and kitted out with skittering amens to boot.

Fresh from his huge cover of the Beatles classic ‘Come Together’, Urbandawn steps into the fold with an utterly outrageous, monster remix of Chaka Demus’ ‘Forward & Pull Up’. This one speaks for itself, in Urbandawn’s trademark punchy, crunchy style.

The album is also the original home for Benny L’s infamous John Holt ‘Police In Helicopter’ remix, which shot to Beatport’s #1 spot across all genres, making both drum & bass and Beatport history.

The ‘Jet Star Meets Hospital’ project is the collaborative workings of the legendary reggae label Jet Star and leading drum & bass imprint Hospital Records. Also featured are hot and heavy remixes from Inja, Whiney, Saxxon, Particle, TI, Quadrant, Kid Hops & Iris, Pete Cannon, Double O & Mantra, and Think Tonk.

Other formats include CD, digital and streaming.
