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

Words by Max Glazer
vybz-kartel-federation-sound

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.

Everything Nice: Watch The First Video From Popcaan’s Upcoming LP

Words by Natalie Weiner–Popcaan-everything-nice-LargeUp

Popcaan has much to be thankful for—cosigns from artists like Pusha TDrake, Busta, and Snoop, a Billboard-charting single, multiple international tours… all before he’s dropped a full-length album. So it makes sense that he’s expressing his gratitude in “Everything Nice,” the first single off his upcoming Mixpak Records debut. Featuring an airy riddim from Dubbel Dutch, the track shows off Popcaan’s smooth vocals as he sings about balancing hard work and good times.

Popcaan has been rising up the dancehall ranks for a few years now. His abundant catchy, hook-filled singles have made him a household name in Jamaica and the Caribbean, and the aforementioned hip-hop collaborations have finally put him on the map in North America. His “unorthodox and oddly melodious delivery” has helped him move from Vybz Kartel protegé to one of dancehall’s biggest crossover artists. Hear more from the man himself in our LargeUp TV exclusive, “A Day In The Life with Popcaan.”
