Wha gwaan world, Deejay Theory here checking in from San Francisco to christen the inaugural edition of our latest music column, ting call “Selector’s Choice”. I’m looking forward to this column as a way to give the people an inside look at what some badd deejay’s are holding in their record bags and hard drives these days in the reggae/dancehall/soca/tropical/bass world. Here’s a few picks I’ve been running at Tormenta Tropical, a monthly party I host in SF w/ partner Oro11. You can always expect the unexpected at Tormenta so let’s go with a mixed bag of vibes to start the show.

Phone Tap: Deejay Theory Remixes Chan Dizzy’s “Calling All Girls”

chan-dizzy-calling-all-girls

Dutty Artz, the Brooklyn-based label behind releases from Jahdan Blakkamoore, DJ/Rupture and others, dropped Chan Dizzy’s “Calling All Girls” earlier this year, as a preview of the forthcoming collaborative LP between NY producers Matt Shadetek and Robzilla. This week the label drops a full EP of remixes for the Robzilla-produced track, including a predictably fuego version from our own Deejay Theory that blends the driving arrangements of mid-aughts dancehall (dramatic synth stabs, cell phone chirps) and something more modern and moombahton-y.

Stream Theory’s remix below, and pre-order the EP (also featuring mixes from Kush Arora, Samrai and Love Taps) here via Bandcamp or iTunes.

‘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.
