J STAR: Regulate Rock – Free download – 2011

Back in the day Warren G and Nate Dogg were regarded as lame-ass jiggy shit in my neck of the woods. Still, time passes and you know what? Regulate still sounds like a cheesy, over-produced rnb turd. G-funk my ass. Enter reggae remixer to the stars – J – er – Star, two years ago. MB waxed lyrical about the skill and dedication required to make Regulate actually sound classy as opposed to something that the people who originally made it thought sounded classy

WARREN G: New album ‘The G Files’ + Regulate (Live) video

Could this explain the recent and inspired Warren G-featuring reggae mash-up Regulate Rock from J-Star? Either his finger is firmly on the hip-hop pulse or he is luckier than Lady Luck’s lucky rabbit’s foot. I, on the other hand, feel like a rabbit short one foot after watching old Warren perform his biggest hit live this summer. A G-Funk revival then – I’m sure Nate Dogg will be along presently…
(PRESS RELEASE) After 10 million albums sold worldwide, Warren G’s seventh studio album, THE G FILES, will be released on September 29th. Self-produced and packed with all-star talents including Snoop Dogg, Travis Barker, Ray J and many more, the current single, “100 Miles and Runnin” featuring Raekwon and Nate Dogg is quickly making its way on to radio stations across the country.
When most West Coast artists such as Dr. Dre, Snoop and Tupac were signing with LA’s Death Row Records, Warren walked a different path and signed with East Coast label Def Jam in 1994. Def Jam founder and the God Father of Hip Hop, Russell Simmons, later cited Warren G’s signing as “a turning point” for Def Jam Records and its subsequent mega-success. “After that, Def Jam never looked back,” Simmons wrote in his book Life and Def.
Warren is looking forward to getting back on the road. He has toured the world, most notably, Warren was a part of one of the most successful Hip Hop tours ever- the Up In Smoke Tour with his brother Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, Ice Cube and more.
Los Angeles fans last caught Warren performing at the Roxy this past July as a special guest at the Travis Barker/DJ AM show. They performed Warren’s mega-hit “Regulate” to a packed audience and the overwhelming response is a testament to his crossover talent.

J STAR: Regulate Rock/ S.O.L.D.I.E.R. – 2009 – 7” review

Rating: ★★★★★

Has everyone who’s made anything good this year just saved it up to be released in September? I know the summer’s festival season isn’t the best time to put out your wares and in any case – anyone who might be releasing something is usually off their tits in a field somewhere, but this September has been mental. By the way, anyone who thinks the monkey’s been over-generous with the old five stars can rest assured there’s a stinker or two coming up in a short minute. But before that – back to this, which illustrates perfectly that ‘grand-daddy of the reggae remixers’, J Star, is not one to fiddle while Rome burns and let upstarts like Wicked Devil and Sandy Balls (no, really) steal his bass thunder. Thus Regulate Rock splices the reggae edit of Marlena Shaw’s Woman of The Ghetto with an old Warren G & Nate Dogg vocal creating a dutty skankin monster that insists you bump n grind, then, over on the flip, he’s got French MC Raggasonic to spit righteous fire over a Junior Byles riddim. More classy rockers innit!
Out 24 September. Ish
