New York City-based dancer and choreographer extraordinaire Blacka di Danca has been traveling the world spreading the gospel of dancehall through classes and appearances at top dance studios and clubs from Mexico to Siberia. He’s currently on his latest tour across Europe, where he had a chance to see history being made as dancehall was added to Juste Debout, the world’s largest street dance competition, earlier this month.

Words by Deejay Theory —

RASTA-ROAD-MIXTAPE-FRONTTouching down from a long week in Austin, Texas (peep the full recap from our first SXSW showcase here) we’re back at Mixtape Mondays with more vibes on deck. New roots and one drop meet an iconic dancehall mix from the vaults and some new shellings.

LargeUp Premiere: Green Lion Crew x King Mas, Rasta Road: The big new mix from the good folks at Green Lion Crew just arrived on our doorstep, laced with new unreleased productions, remixes and exclusives, hosted by and featuring the crisp vocals and conscious lyrics of the one King Mas. This is a natural collaboration between two strong camps in modern roots music, with Green Lion busy at the controls producing new riddims and Mas steadily earning supporters with each new tune. Undoubtedly both considered artists and producers to look out for this year, the two put it all together with the Rasta Road mixtape blasting off right here on Mixtape Mondays. Stream and download below, tracklist here

AUDIO: Vybz Kartel x Federation Sound, “Portmore Scheme”

Words by Max Glazer

This is probably my single favorite thing I have ever had the pleasure of working on with Adidja Palmer, professionally known as Vybz Kartel. It’s not the most polished recording, in fact you will probably notice some digital distortion, but it certainly has the vibe. This may even be my all time favorite recording of the man known, at various times in his career, as Adi Banton, Adi Di Teacha, Vybz Kartel and now Worl’ Boss.

Jamaica’s Tarik “Rvssian” Johnston keeps his studio in Kingston, but the dancehall producer (formerly known as Russian with a ‘u’) currently resides in Miami. It is fitting then that a Latin thread runs through his latest batch of productions.
