NEW AUDIO: Busy Signal’s “Same Way”

Words by Jesse Serwer—


Are you paying attention to Busy Signal right now? You should be. Hott Ed started off 2013 red hot, and, though he hasn’t had any runaway hits, he hasn’t cooled off, dropping some of the year’s tuffest dancehall tunes. In our view, Busy’s been ahead of the game since he first turned up on the scene in ’05, and deserves consideration in any discussion of the baddest dancehall deejays of the last decade.

Choppingz!: Stream Equiknoxx Music’s “V-Town Sound: The Anti-Thesis” EP

equiknoxx music-kabaka-pyramid-masicka

Without much fanfare, Equiknoxx Music are making some of the most creative and interesting dancehall music right now. Actually, they’ve been doing that for a while. Their Wash Belly is one of our favorite riddims in recent years.

The production team led by Koffy Knoxx has just released a new EP called V-Town Sound: The Anti-Thesis. (it’s a sequel to an earlier V-Town Sound installment dubbed The Thesis), and every track is straight badness.

Ahead of his upcoming third solo album Revelation Part II: The Fruit of Life (due out later this year), Stephen Marley recently dropped the single “Bongo Nyah” featuring Damian Marley and Spragga Benz on us, via an exclusive LargeUp premiere. And, now he’s got another high-profile collaboration in “You and Me Attract” with perennial LargeUp favorite, Busy Signal.

Mash Up The Place: Los Rakas + More Take On Major Lazer’s “Bumaye”

Words by Deejay Theory —

It was only a matter of time before Major Lazer’s massive carnival anthem “Watch Out For This (Bumaye)” saw the official remix treatment. The original mix (which features The Flexican & FS Green) is one of my top personal picks of 2013, combining straight dancehall bizness from Busy Signal with salsa-flavored moombahton, all targeted straight for the waist. For the remix pack, what stood out first was “Desorden” from our Panabaynian homies Los Rakas, who of course sound right at home over the dembow-style production, blessing it with their trademark Spanish flow. As with all of Los Rakas’ joints, you don’t have to speak the language to just vibe out and get busy. There’s also killer takes from T.O.K and Shurwayne Winchester on the original riddim, plus five big-room and uptempo flips. (I’ll likely be sticking with the remixes over the OG version.) Login via Twitter to download the full pack here, or just stream “Desorden” below.

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.
