LargeUp Premiere: Serani’s “In My Arms” Video

serani-in-my-arms

When you talk about dancehall from the last 10 years, you have to mention Serani. As the leader of the production crew Daseca, he helped launch Mavado’s career, soundtracking early Gully Gad anthems like “Real McKoy,” as well as big hits by Sean Paul (“We Be Burnin”) and Tony Matterhorn (“Dutty Wine”). Stepping out as an artist a few years later, he struck big with 2009’s “No Games.” One of dancehall’s last truly massive crossover hits, it’s one of those tunes that mus’ play anytime a hip-hop or big-room club DJ plunges into dancehall.

Things have been quiet for Serani in the last few years–or so it might seem.
