LargeUp Premiere: Serani’s “In My Arms” Video


When you talk about dancehall from the last 10 years, you have to mention Serani. As the leader of the production crew Daseca, he helped launch Mavado’s career, soundtracking early Gully Gad anthems like “Real McKoy,” as well as big hits by Sean Paul (“We Be Burnin”) and Tony Matterhorn (“Dutty Wine”). Stepping out as an artist a few years later, he struck big with 2009’s “No Games.” One of dancehall’s last truly massive crossover hits, it’s one of those tunes that mus’ play anytime a hip-hop or big-room club DJ plunges into dancehall.

Things have been quiet for Serani in the last few years–or so it might seem.

Now ‘Ere Dis!: Super Cat Meets Shaggy + Maxi Priest on “Night Flight”

Photo by Martei Korley

It’s been 10 long years since we last heard new vocals from Super Cat. For some of you, that number may be closer to 15 years, since ‘Cat’s early 2000s output (the little-heard “Reggae Matic,” and a handful of mixtape tracks with the Neptunes) flew below many folks’ radar. But now hell has frozen over, and we have actual audio of a new track with Super Cat — alongside fellow reggae geniuses Shaggy and Maxi Priest, no less. The track, “Night Flight,” comes via Shaggy, who we hear had hoped to feature the tune on his last album, Out of Many, One Music. (It was also Shaggy who was responsible for luring ‘Cat out of retirement for his appearance at last year’s On Da Reggae Tip concert).
