Words by DJ Theory —

Bashment mechanics Toddla T and David Heartbreak meet bedroom specialist Mr Lexx to give us some insight on what it means to be a modern-day gallis on their new tune titled, you guessed it.. Pum Pum. Taking authentic dancehall to the electronic stage can be a little tricky, but each of these dudes know the deal with crossover territory and have been pushing the boundaries with major releases and collaborations in their respective corners. For this new double dose of versions from Toddla’s Girls Music imprint, you get a taste of raw dancehall vibes inna moombahton fashion. The artist formerly known as Lexxus is in vintage form, riding the signature 108bpm riddim with his distinctive flow, and a couple nods to hip-hop.

Video: Skrillex ft. Damian Marley “Make It Bun Dem”

Words by DJ Theory —

A few months ago when I first caught wind of the Skrillex x Damian Marley collab I was a bit reluctant to cosign, but after further digesting and running it in the club the tune delivers.  Simply from the collaboration alone it has massive crossover strength, bridging the gap between the dancheall, reggae and dare I say EDM worlds.  The just released video – directed by Tony Truand – is simply stunning. Shedding some light on the foreclosure crisis here in the states, a suburban shaman and youth bring the spirit world straight to babylon’s doorstep. Rain dance, war paint, wolves, hawks, medicine drums, mysticism, and trippy 3D visuals connect with the music spot on and will likely send a shiver down your spine.  Rudeboy shaman says tell some police bwoy fi pack up and run way.

Hopefully you’ve peeped our recent article on moombahton, easily one of the most talked about genres on the global music scene today. Taking a Caribbean influence from birth with its use of reggaeton tempos, many of the style’s practitioners are also incorporating elements of reggae, dancehall, soca and other island flavors into their beats. One DJ/producer doing just that is Washington, DC’s Cam Jus.
