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.

Major ‘Smoker’: Aidonia’s Weed Anthem Gets a Lazer-Powered Remix

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Walshy Fire x Major Lazer x Aidonia

Aidonia recently dropped a new weed anthem, “Joker Smoker,” and we hear it’s hitting in Jamaica with the strength of 1,000 ounces of high-grade. Produced by Yosuke “Pancho” Kawamoto of Japanese duo Gachapan, it’s built around a sample of Triston Palmer’s 1982 classic of the same name. Though it’s only been around a week, it’s already making some serious waves.
