AUDIO: Masicka x Shanique Marie x Addis Pablo – Lighters

EQUIKNOXX Masicka Addis Pablo Shanique Marie - Lighter

Let’s see some lighter for the vibey new tune from the always-delivering Equiknoxx Music camp featuring the voice of Masicka and frequent colloborator Shanique Marie plus the talented bredrin Addis Pablo. Backed by a subtly sweet and moody dancehall riddim Masicka comes with conscious heat right out the gate, with Shanique gracing the hook and Addis flexing the signature melodica on a spaced out atmospheric outro. We could get used to these kinds of feels in dancehall for sure …

Throwback Thursdays: Maxi Priest On His Classic Shabba Collaboration “Housecall”

Words by Richard “Treats” Dryden

You could probably learn a thing or two about sexual relations from listening to Maxi Priest and Shabba Ranks’ “House Call” in 1991. However, getting it on, or getting it in, was the furthest thing from my mind when I first heard their collaboration at age 10. My father—a Jamaican DJ from New York, newly transplanted to Los Angeles—made me a mixtape with some of Shabba’s reigning hits like “Housecall” and “Mr. Loverman,” along with a bunch of tunes over the Telephone Love riddim. I was smitten by his seamless transition of the original “Housecall” into its 12” remix and the various versions of “Mr Loverman,” such as the David Morales Ragga Hop Mix. I might have been too young to remember “Housecall” gaining mass appeal in NY: it was Shabba’s core dancehall releases resonated deeper in my Caribbean neighborhood of Flatbush, Brooklyn.
