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


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.

Green Screen: Jah9 Toasts To Fresh Food In Her “Avocado” Video

Words by Jesse Serwer


Last year’s “Steamers a Bubble” was a big tune for singer Janine “Jah9″ Cunningham, and one of our favorite female-sung ganja anthems since Rita Marley’s “One Draw.” For her latest single,  “Avocado,” the Falmouth, Jamaica native turns her attention to a different sort of green. An avocado might seem like an odd object to serenade, but the track, produced by Rory Gilligan of Stone Love, is the latest in a long line of reggae songs celebrating healthy eating (see Chronixx’s “Spirulina” for another recent example).
