Audio: The Heatwave Bring “Pum Pum Bax”

Words by DJ Theory—

Whoa gosh.. another dancefloor destroyer here courtesy of our folks across the lake at The Heatwave headquarters. For this concoction they blend x-rated vocals from Tommy Lee, Busy Signal and Natalie Storm with the infectious 2-step tune “Bax” from London killa Mosca, and it results in a clever crossover refix that’s a UK deejay’s wet dream.. Couldn’t help but recall our girl The Large‘s version as well, which also knocks. Stream Pum Pum Bax below or cop the free download here. Nice one!

Bomb A Drop: Watch Busy Signal’s “Everybody Turn Artiste” Video

Words By Sherman Escoffery–

Maybe it was the five months that Busy Signal spent incarcerated outside of Jamaica which made him reflect on how many waste individuals he had to coexist with in the music fraternity. After dropping the throwback style “Come Shock Out,” Busy appears to be on a personal mission, with his new single “Everybody Turn Artiste,” to leave an indelible impression on Jamaican music, and also to clean out and displace these individuals masquerading as artists and clogging up the music pipeline with irrelevant noise they think is music. The line, “What a disgrace in the music fraternity, right now the music needs a surgery” is a harsh truth many are afraid to say in public about the current state of dancehall music. In this uptempo criticism that is also potential dance anthem, Busy does not spare the payola-demanding radio jocks, or the producers of the noise, either.

Pull Up, Selector!: Stream Busy Signal’s New Single “Come Shock Out”

Words by Sherman Escoffery—

Busy Signal

Less than ten days after being released from prison in the US, dancehall star Busy Signal has returned to Jamaica and asserted his presence with “Come Shock Out,” a real uptempo feelgood song that pays tribute to 80’s sound system deejays, and a time when it was just one turntable playing in the dance. Shouting out his peers and his elders alike, Busy channels the sound of some of dancehall’s greatest rhythm riders from the 80’s, including the late Early B, Lord Sassafrass, Burru Banton, General Trees and even Sancho, as producer Shane Brown plays bits and pieces of Dennis Brown’s “Revolution” bass line—and which Busy Signal rides like a professional disc jockey in the Jamaican sense of the word.
