Mixtape Mondays: Douster’s “Inna Douster Style N Fashion” (LargeUp Premiere)

Words by Deejay Theory —


It’s good to see French tropical/bass/club music maestro Douster moving fully in the dancehall arena with his newest project—a wicked, four- track EP featuring the fresh voices of JA talents Keida, Cee Gee, Kantana and Kari Jess (not to mention some cool, Limonious-inspired artwork). Our friends at Mixpak passed thru this week to drop off this full-length DJ mix from Douster as a teaser for the release. The mix is stacked with favorites from the early days of dancehall to today, from Gregory Isaacs and Yellowman to Busy Signal and Tifa (and some French ragga, too), so we had to do the premiere for you right here on Mixtape Mondays just to fully hype up the ting.

We’re broadcasting live from Tokyo this week, on my way back to San Francisco via a great week in Singapore. Spent the week DJ’ing and taking in 90 degree days capping off with the Big Wig Festival, where I also had the pleasure of backing Masia One (who just got off a SE Asia run with our boy DJ Autograph). As you know Mixtape Mondays never sleeps, and we’ve got another well-rounded edition with badness inna dancehall, blazing roots & culture, and original tropical vibes. Take it all in below.

Busy Signal Bumaye Video Shoot

Major Lazer flew down to Kingston to film a 90s-style street dance video, complete with Busy Signal on mic, Walshy Fire on the ones and twos, and Diplo and Jillionaire a pose-off with some bashment girls, for their latest banger ‘‘Watch Out for This (Bumaye).’’ Some highlights from the behind-the-scenes footage they’ve leaked in advance of the Jay Will-directed video’s release next week: Walshy Fire in his oversized Shabba outfit, Busy Signal’s ghetto-gold sequin shirt, and Diplo nervously getting a local haircut: “You ever cut white dude blonde hair before?”

“Watch Out” Now: Major Lazer x Busy Signal, “Watch Out For This (Bumaye)”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Major Lazer Bumaye Video

Of the collaborations promised on Major Lazer‘s upcoming Free the Universe LP, “Watch Out For This (Bumaye)” featuring Busy Signal is one of those that most piqued our interest. Not only has Busy been on a quality-filled tear since returning home to Jamaica from a US prison stay last year (though surely the song’s vocals were recorded before that), but the song promised to match Busy’s dancehall style with some Latin flavor, an arena where he has excelled in the past. Add in the early ’90s JA period-piece video (directed by dancehall director Jay Will) that Major Lazer shot on a recent visit to Kingston (see above photo), and color us intrigued.
