For the past few years, Red Bull Music Academy has been organizing sound clashes pitting DJ crews from multiple genres against one another, in an annual “celebration of sound system culture and its ongoing influence on hip hop, dancehall and dance music.” The way we see it, these Culture Clash events are an opportunity for the rest of the music world to catch up to reggae and dancehall in the field of DJ-driven entertainment, and to see what they’ve been missing if they’ve never been to a true sound clash—which are centered on crowd interaction and have a whole different (and livelier) energy than a technical skills-oriented DJ battle.

LargeUp Premiere: SOJA x Collie Buddz, “She Still Loves Me” (Prod. by Supa Dups)

Soja featuring Collie Buddz, She Still Loves Me

SOJA have become one of the biggest names on the US reggae scene over the last decade, touring relentlessly and dominating the iTunes reggae charts. The Cali/Hawaii reggae circuit SOJA are often associated with isn’t something we usually cover here on our Caribbean-focused corner of the Internet. But SOJA (who actually hail from Northern Virginia, not Cali) piqued our attention recently by spending some time at Circle House Studios (aka Circle Village), the Miami studio owned by Roger and Ian Lewis of Inner Circle, where Black Chiney’s Supa Dups helped inject some yard vibes into their mix.

The first track to emerge from those sessions, “She Still Loves Me” pairs SOJA with Collie Buddz over a crisp, Supa Dups-produced riddim, as vocalist Jacob Hemphill breaks some bad news to his old girl’s current beau.

Audio: Walshy Fire + So Shifty Remix “Bruk It Down”

Words by Tasha Brown—

Just when you thought Mr. Vegas’ “Bruk It Down” couldn’t be mixed anymore, Walshy Fire and So Shifty have put a fresh spin on Vegas’ year-old-yet-still-going dancehall hit over the holidays. Walshy and So Shifty are no strangers to dancehall remixes, but the Jamaican born, Miami-based selector/mic man and the German production duo took this one—actually, there’s two, slightly different remixes—in a surprising direction that recalls Brazilian baile funk and Baltimore club, and is driven by the twangy sound of a jew’s harp. When two (well, three) dancehall gurus merge on an already-banging Mr. Vegas track, this is what it sounds like:
