Throwback Thursdays: Black Chiney’s Most Classic Mixtapes


Black-Chiney-Walshy-Fire-Supa-Dups

A little over a year ago, Supa Dups, founder of Black Chiney Sound (and producer for Eminem, Bruno Mars and Rihanna, among others), uploaded the full catalog of the Miami DJ crew’s influential mixtape series to his Soundcloud page. Released on CD back when you had to purchase mixtapes by hand instead of downloading them for free, Black Chiney mixes were highly sought-after by dancehall enthusiasts at the time of their release in the early and mid 2000s. Renowned for their seamless blends of reggae vocals and hip-hop beats, they have taken on legendary status.

Soca Hideaway: Black Chiney’s Willy Chin Blends Keisza + Kerwin DuBois

Words by Maj Johnson
Willy-Chin-Black-Chiney

We’ve been hearing soca and pop music blending in all sorts of ways recently, and the occurrences are growing more frequent. In the latest example of soca meeting the mainstream, Willy Chin of Black Chiney has blended Kerwin Dubois’s Carnival 2014 contribution “Spoil Mehself” with Canadian singer Kiesza’s smash summer hit “Hideaway.” The mashup first appeared on the ridiculously good Black Chiney Soca/Carnival mixtape Uh Gosh! and, having turned a few ears, it’s now been upped to the Internet in its entirety.

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.
