‘Blessed’ Earthstrong: Deejay Theory Remixes Sizzla’s New Tune

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Sizzla+Blessed

Our Deejay Theory has been killing it with the remixes lately. His latest detonator is an official remix of Sizzla’s “Blessed,” just in time for Kalonji’s Earthstrong today. The mix is part of a nine-track set of remixes from Mista Savona’s Muti Music which dropped Tuesday, as a teaser to their upcoming Sizzla LP, Born A King. Theory’s take puts a percussive, horn-accentuated thump at its center, taking the Eastern-flavored hip-hop banger deeper into the club.

Beg Yuh Build a Box: Watch Gappy Ranks’ “Carpenter” Video

gappy-ranks-carpenter

The U.K.’s Gappy Ranks had a big year in 2013, returning to a more roots-y sound with his LP Shining Hope after focusing on dancehall for much of the last few years. Carpenter” was one of the big singles off of that album, featuring Ranks’ authoritative flow over a tough, dubwise riddim —in fact, we had it as one of the year’s Top 10 reggae tracks.

Produced by King I-vier, the force behind tracks like Protoje and Chronixx’s “Who Knows” and “Selassie Souljahz,” (with the latter also featuring Kabaka Pyramid and Sizzla), “Carpenter” has been picking up momentum since its release last fall, thanks in part to an abundance of strong remixes from the likes of Deejay Theory and Suns of Dub.

Double Kotch: Major Lazer + Deejay Theory Take On QQ’s “One Drop”

Words by LargeUp Crew —

qq-one-drop-rmx

Double dose of pure winery here from two formidable camps in the taking-dancehall-to-the-next-level department. On the right you have those guys Major Lazer who you’ve possibly heard about, and on the left our own Deejay Theory, who’s been on an absolute tear lately. They’ve both taken arguably the biggest party song in Jamaica right now, and juiced it up in all different directions to make the dance get buckwild. The original from QQ ft. Venomus is a little ironic in itself, considering QQ first buss on the scene as a likkle youth during the one-drop revival era with a nyabhingi single called “Poverty” on the Serious Times riddim. Fast-forward some years and have the same voice—all grown up now—charting a massive dance tune called “One Drop” that’s a far cry from traditional one-drop reggae. Nevertheless the tune is madd, and a surefire reaction getter at any dance right now.
