Throwback Thursdays: The Large on Beenie Man’s “World Dance”

Words by The Large

DJ/writer/publisher/visual culture expert The Large is truly a “jill” of all trades. Her latest score is co-curating (along with Al Fingers) the super hype “Art in the Dancehall” exhibit currently on display in Birmingham, England, featuring the works of people like Limonious, Jamaal Peete, Tony McDermott, Sassafras, Robin Clare, Ellen G and more. Here she shares her thoughts on one of her aesthetic (and audio) inspirations, in Beenie Man’s “World Dance.”

LargeUp Premiere: Machel Montano x Dre Skull = “Go Down”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

For his new Loudspeaker riddim, Dre Skull of Mixpak Records and Vybz Kartel’s Kingston Story fame has connected with none other than the reigning Groovy and Power Soca monarch, Machel Montano. While Machel has been known to step out of his high-BPM soca comfort zone on occasion, you’ve never heard him on a pure dancehall riddim quite like this before. This one is definitely gonna make both the gyuls and gyals go dung this summer, in what we expect will be a sexy show of Trini-JA dancefloor solidarity. Stream “Go Down” below, preview the rest of the tunes here, and look out for the full riddim release, also featuring Beenie Man, Popcaan and Natalie Storm, here on May 22.

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.
