LargeUp Premiere: DJ Pierre feat. Rory Stone Love, “Seleckta (Jamroc Remix)”

Words by Jesse Serwer

Selecka DJ Pierre x Jamroc

Chicago house music pioneer DJ Pierre has a new, dancehall-inspired single out today featuring legendary Jamaican sound man Rory of Stone Love fame out on hipster EDM label, Dim Mak Records. If that’s not novel enough for you, the DJ duo—and the certified dons of dance music in Jamaica— Alric & Boyd (Federation Sound, FAME FM) got the job of remixing the single, called “Seleckta.” Actually, the mix is the debut of Jamroc, their new production team with Douglas Harper, a/k/a Ben-J.A.H. Look out for more Jamroc releases, including a remix of “Acid Dreams” by the Detroit Grand Poo Bahs remix and their first single “Head Bass,” both out on DJ Pierre’s AATRAXX label, within the month.

Zeen?: No Ice Cream Sound Issue #3

Words by Jesse Serwer

Susannah Webb is the DJ known as The Large (check her latest mix, Neva Soft) and the gyal behind T-shirt line/blog Shimmy Shimmy. She also produces the world’s first and only publication to share a name with a classic Johnny Osbourne soundbwoy killer. No Ice Cream Sound is in the tradition of hand-bound punk-rock fanzines but great illustrations and the distinctive artistic sensibilities apparent in everything Shimmy Shimmy color each issue, creating a unique piece d’art. The latest one is out this week and has features and/or interviews with Popcaan, Stylo G, Alric and Boyd (interviewed about house music by LargeUp’s own Erin MacLeod), Mungo’s Hi-Fi and India’s Reggae Rajahs. Cop it.
