Fashion, Forward: Aidonia’s “80s Dancehall Style”

Words by Saxon Baird—

aidonia-80s-dancehall-style-music-video

We don’t want to call it a full-on revival, but dancehall has definitely been leaning towards a return to the vintage style and sound of Jamaica in the late ‘80s and ‘90s. Mr. Vegas (and Joe Lickshot!) just dropped “Real Don,” channeling the simple sound of dancehall’s early digital era. Konshens and Romain Virgo meanwhile gave us one of 2013′s most memorable dancehall videos, donning old-school Jamaican fashions—mesh marinas, backward Kangol caps— for their excellent throwback tune, “We Nuh Worry Bout Dem.”

Vintage Vibes: Mr.Vegas + Joe Lickshot’s “Real Don”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

mr-vegas

It seems like everyone in reggae and dancehall is going back to basics. You could say Mr. Vegas helped kick off this trend back in early 2012 when he released Sweet Jamaica, an album inspired by vintage rocksteady and Jamaican festival tunes. Vegas of course went right back to the future, embracing uptempo EDM-influenced dancehall on subsequent hits “Party Tun Up” and “Give It To Har,” but he’s set his watch back once again with “Real Don.”
