Blacka’s World: Blacka Loses Himself + Teaches The World

Words by LargeUp Crew—


The Winter Olympics weren’t the only international culture clash happening in Russia last month. While the world’s greatest cold-weather athletes were proving themselves in Sochi, our Blacka Di Danca was in Moscow getting an army of Russian dancers in sync with dancehall during his latest instructional tour. If this video (an Instagram-sized preview of a more extensive clip to come) doesn’t speak volumes about dancehall’s global appeal, we don’t know what does.

LargeUp Premiere: Equiknoxx Music’s Frenz List Riddim


Equiknoxx Music’s Frenz List riddim features Busy Signal, T.O.K., Masicka, Christopher Martin, Navino and new artist ReoSoul over a spare, wine-inducing dancehall instrumental from Equiknoxx’s Gavin “Gavsborg” Blair.

Zip FM’s ZJ Johnny Kool premiered the riddim (which gets an official iTunes release March 14)  via radio, and now Equiknoxx, one of our favorite dancehall production outfits of the moment, have given us a mix previewing the first four tracks on the riddim (from Busy, T.O.K., Masicka and ReoSoul). For good measure, they’ve also shared a stream of lead single “Frenz” by ReoSoul to help you get familiar.

Grab these mixes to get into the spirit of the fete, but don’t hold us responsible if you end up wining on a co-worker or stranger on the train.

Audio: Ape Drums Bring the Rave with “Bashment”

Words by Deejay Theory —

Let’s take a hot second to get everyone up on the kid Ape Drums from Houston, one of the baddest young producers in the Electro-Caribbean crossover world right now. While still under the radar, dude self-released a handful of ace remixes that are staples in my sets, including flips of Gappy Ranks, Vybz Kartel, Suku and an official remix for Major Lazer. Recently picked up by the big man DJ Craze‘s Slow Roast Records his first offering for Slow Roast comes in the form of this big room tropical monster, ting call “Bashment.”
