Soca Hideaway: Black Chiney’s Willy Chin Blends Keisza + Kerwin DuBois

Words by Maj Johnson
Willy-Chin-Black-Chiney

We’ve been hearing soca and pop music blending in all sorts of ways recently, and the occurrences are growing more frequent. In the latest example of soca meeting the mainstream, Willy Chin of Black Chiney has blended Kerwin Dubois’s Carnival 2014 contribution “Spoil Mehself” with Canadian singer Kiesza’s smash summer hit “Hideaway.” The mashup first appeared on the ridiculously good Black Chiney Soca/Carnival mixtape Uh Gosh! and, having turned a few ears, it’s now been upped to the Internet in its entirety.

Blacka’s World: We Chief “Gyals From Brooklyn” Video Premiere

Words by Blacka Di Danca—

We-Chief-Gyals-From-Brooklyn

A few months ago, I made a step out of the standard dancehall scene (clubs, workshops, dance videos) and made my debut in the mainstream entertainment industry as a music video choreographer. I had the opportunity to choreograph Major Lazer’s “Lose Yourself” music video with Mela Murder, which already has over 2 million hits on YouTube. Now, I’m at it again! I’m proud to share with you that I choreographed my second music video, this time all by myself. “Gyals From Brooklyn” is my first solo project as a choreographer and little by little I’m working hard to bring authentic dancehall dancing into mainstream entertainment!

AUDIO: Brooklyn Bounce from We Chief ft. Da Professor

Some fresh and energetic self-described “raggatronic” business from brand new Brooklyn collective We Chief featuring big vocals from JA killer Da Professor. As you may know, the borough of Brooklyn has long been a hotbed of converging cultures, styles and of course music, and for this combination we get an electronic gallis anthem complete with elements of ragga, soca, dancehall and moombahton with a carnival pulse. Definitely look out for more bangers from this team soon.
