‘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.
