LargeUp Premiere: Orange Hill + RDX Tun It Up “Loud”

Words by Deejay Theory

Be forewarned that you may end up wining at your desk or swerving on the freeway with the latest effort we just got handed from Orange Hill Productions. Our dupes in the UK have been teaming up with artists like Vybz Kartel, Mr Lexx, Busy Signal, Fatman Scoop and heaps more over the past few years, and, for their latest single, Jr. Tubby and Ras Kwame drafted none other than RDX to spread their signature party flow all over this uptempo Electro-Bashy recording. There’s even a 2-step mix to make sure the UK massive is properly sorted.

Wheel + Come Again: Watch Assassin’s 90s Bashment-Inspired “Sekkle an Cease” Video

Words by Saxon Baird

Assassin-Sekkle-an-Cease

Directed by Scorpio 21 of Kao Arts (whose work also includes the colorful “Tight Skirt” video from Samantha J), Assassin’s “Sekkle an Cease” is the latest in a wave of 2014 dancehall videos inspired by the look and feel of ’90s dancehall sound system party, and it might just be the most on-point one yet. There’s jerk chicken in the back, nuff Guinness, mesh marinas, high-top fades, backwards Kangols and whining gyals in pum-pum shorts (including one in a gold-lamé outfit styled after Dancehall Queen Carlene). Perhaps the most authentic touch of all is a scratchy video quality meant to simulate the experience of watching on a worn, dub-of-a-dub VHS tape—in other words, the way you would have seen a video like this back in the era it’s meant to resemble.
