Words by Deejay Theory —

MM 45

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.

Watch Out For This: Major Lazer Revisit ’90s Dancehall Fashions

Words by Raine Martin—

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.

Chronixx—our No. 1 Artist to Watch for 2013—is definitely starting the year out with a bang. Fresh off his recent sitdown with our Erin MacLeod, the singer has announced an appearance at next week’s Rebel Salute concert and an upcoming collaboration with Sizzla. He was also spotted this week on the set for Major Lazer’s 90s-dancehall-period-piece video for “Bumaye” featuring Busy Signal. And now he’s just dropped his first video of the year, for one of his most accessible tunes to date in “The Mini Song.”
