Target celebrates the influence of Jamaican music on the UK scene with help from Lady Chann, Tippa Irie and Heatwave!

Tippa Irie and Lady Chann shared memories of their soundsystem days and Heatwave threw down a heavy mix of UK music influenced by dancehall and reggae.

Plus we asked Zed Bias and Sticky to remix some of 1Xtra's Tuff Gong sessions. Listen back to hear Zed Bias's exclusive remix of Chaka Demus & Pliers 'Murder She Wrote' and Sticky's remix of Christopher Martin's cover of John Holt's classic 'If I Were A Carpenter' featuring MC Navigator.
