High Fidelity: Dre Skull’s Loudspeaker Riddim

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Dre Skull and Mixpak Records have an excellent new riddim called Loudspeaker on the way May 22, and they’ve just released this clip hosted by our bredrin Walshy Fire as a preview of what’s in store. The ethereal riddim itself has nuff vibes, and the release has some of our favorite artists: Popcaan, Beenie Man, Machel Montano and our very own Punany Monologues columnist Natalie Storm. Feel like there’s a summer anthem in there somewhere but can’t quite call which it is yet. Which one do you think will buss?

LargeUp Premiere: Beenie Man’s “Rock the World” Video

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Beenie Man takes an Audi ride into space in his trippy new video for “Rock the World,” on Portmore-based production team Brukkout‘s Sewage Breath riddim. But, as with so many dancehall videos, it’s the dancers who take things to the cosmos. Beenie’s co-stars in “Rock the World,” Sweden’s Blackout Twinz, have been making noise in Jamaica since becoming their home country’s dancehall queens a few years back, and they show us why with a charismatic performance to match that of the always-lively Beenie. Also making turns in “Rock the World,” directed by Stephen K. Schuster and Weird Days (a Brooklyn director team known for their work with Das Racist and indie band Real Estate, among others) are one of Beenie’s sons, and a bottle of Yaad Swag, his newly launched rum.

You Rate It: Nicki Minaj x Beenie Man, “Gun Shot”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Here at LargeUp we try to carefully curate all of our musical selections so you don’t have to. There’s plenty of other sites where you can sift through all the junk that gets thrown onto the Internet on a daily basis. But every now and then something drops that’s just too notable to ignore even if it’s not exactly our cup of tea. Such is the case with Nicki Minaj’s “Gun Shot” featuring Beenie Man.

Hi, Rihanna: Federation Sound’s All-Dubplate Rihanna Birthday Mix

Words by Jesse Serwer, via Federation Sound

As you may know, our dude Max Glazer and Rihanna go way back. The Federation Sound boss man was Ms. Fenty’s original DJ, playing an instrumental role in the pop superstar’s early career, and still turns up as a DJ at her private parties. For her 24th birthday today, Mr. Glazer gave his old buddy a nice tribute by compiling an all-dubplate mix in her honor featuring pretty much every current dancehall star of note toasting to the Bajan princess’ B-day over their biggest recent hits. Popcaan’s “Ravin” and “Party Shot,” Beenie Man and Future Fambo’s “Rum and Red Bull,” Mavado’s “So Special,” Serani’s “No Games,” Vegas’ “I Am Blessed” and more all get Rihanna x 24 re-licks from the artists themselves. Stream the mix below, and download it here.
