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.”

Throwback Thursdays: Shabba Ranks + Johnny Gill on Arsenio Hall

Words by DJ Gravy—


When Sean Paul and Konshens performed “Want Dem All” on the newly relaunched Arsenio Hall Show the other day, it got us thinking, hmmmmm. “Mr. Let’s Get Busy” (that’s Arsenio, for you young’uns) had a whole heap of reggae artists on his original show back in the day. But this clip of big, dutty, stinkin Shabba Ranks and R&B singer Johnny Gill performing their combination tune “Slow And Sexy” definitely takes the cake.

You Rate It: Mr. Vegas x Amara La Negra, “Give it to Har (Remix)”

Words by Jesse Serwer—


In an unexpected, but welcome, clashing of worlds, an old LargeUp friend, Mr. Vegas, and a recent obsession, Amara La Negra, have aligned with one another. Vegas dropped the dancehall bubbler “Give It To Har” last summer, earning him a spot on our countdown of 2013′s toppa top dancehall singles; for the remix, he reached across the Caribbean to the Dominican (via Miami) sensation who caught our eyes and ears with the baile funk/reggaeton/Miami Bass/dancehall amalgam “Ayy,” last year. (Read more about Amara in our 2014 Artists to Watch list).
