Watch Out Fi Dis: Major Lazer + Busy Signal On “Dancing With The Stars”

Words by Natalie Weiner—2D274905397452-140317-danica-mckellar-rh.blocks_desktop_large

You remember Winnie Cooper, heroine (and crush of 10-year-old boys everywhere) of late ’80s hit The Wonder Years? Well, as so many…post-fame celebrities before her, Winnie— aka actress and mathematician Danica McKellar— is taking her turn on the unfailingly popular television show Dancing With The Stars, now in its 18th season.

Last night Danica and her partner Val brought a serious dancehall moment to the typically ballroom-centric series, choosing Major Lazer and Busy Signal‘s “Watch Out For This (Bumaye)” as the soundtrack to their salsa routine. Salsa? Well, as we noted when the song dropped, it’s based on a sample of Wilie Colon and Ruben Blades’ “Maria Colonza.” The selection came as something of a surprise to the judges. Len, the show’s Simon Cowell, called the routine “a little pop-videoish” (if only he had seen the actual “Bumaye” video) while Bruno called it “ghetto fabulous salsa from the hood.” We’re just going to leave that there…

LargeUp Premiere: Equiknoxx Music’s Frenz List Riddim

equiknoxx

Equiknoxx Music’s Frenz List riddim features Busy Signal, T.O.K., Masicka, Christopher Martin, Navino and new artist ReoSoul over a spare, wine-inducing dancehall instrumental from Equiknoxx’s Gavin “Gavsborg” Blair.

Zip FM’s ZJ Johnny Kool premiered the riddim (which gets an official iTunes release March 14)  via radio, and now Equiknoxx, one of our favorite dancehall production outfits of the moment, have given us a mix previewing the first four tracks on the riddim (from Busy, T.O.K., Masicka and ReoSoul). For good measure, they’ve also shared a stream of lead single “Frenz” by ReoSoul to help you get familiar.
