Words by Deejay Theory —
Huge set of vibes here from two major camps—this is what happens when you take dancehall to the club. First up, Finnish dance music label Top Billin has a brand new effort in the dancehall arena— let’s not forget this heater we dropped from them last year. This one rallied a loud UK lineup via RSXG (producers X-Ill-Ent G and Rebel Sonix) featuring Birmingham talents Lady Leshurr, Juki Ranx and Brooklynne. The promos are steadily making rounds in UK dancehall and radio circuits, and I’m sure the original and remix versions will soon start to percolate in the states as well. We’ve got the premiere of “Swag Fi Dem” right here, plus the video and exclusive download for the moombahton remix from Rebel Sonix and Geek Boy. Full description and purchase links for the original and remix versions here. Peep the original video here and the remix version and download below.

This one is straight platanos — wicked combination of teams and styles from NYC, Jamaica, and Germany. Our folks at The Rub just shared their first original EP (on Ayres‘ own T&A Records label) and of course had to reach out to some of their peers for the proper remix treatment. Among that list is the unstoppable So Shifty, who absolutely demolish any project they touch. They’ve taken on our resident dutty gyal and pum pum specialist Natalie Storm and her tune “Dutty Gyal” and morphed it into a soca/pop/carnival monster capable of leveling large crowds with a single rinse. Lucky for you they decided to give this heater away as a free download, before the remix EP drops tomorrow 7/30. Stream and download below:
