AUDIO: Brooklyn Bounce from We Chief ft. Da Professor

Words by Deejay Theory 

artworks-000083967626-9ae4yv-t500x500
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.

Tarrus Tun Up: “Singy Singy” Meets Chi Ching Ching On “Tun Up The Music”

Words by Natalie Weiner—Tarrus Riley Radio Lily 2

Tarrus Riley is going from one-drop to the drop in his latest release “Tun Up The Music,” an EDM-influenced track with Chi Ching Ching from Chimney Records. The track is something of a departure for Riley, best known for his mellow, lilting lover’s rock—just listen to his most recent rocksteady-throwback album Love Situation. For Chi Ching Ching—recent guest on our own LargeUp Sessions and a featured performer at tomorrow night’s bashment with Federation Sound—the club-ready sound is less surprising. Ching’s been on top of the EDM trend for a minute, most recently with his remix of Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What” (apparently he’s equally adept at turning up and down).

The video starts off with Riley playing hide-and-seek in the forest (with a pretty gyal, naturally), which quickly turns into a very fluorescent forest party. Check it out below, and tell us what you think in the comments. And if you’re in Miami, don’t miss Ching alongside Wayne Wonder, Cham and the rest of the crew.

AUDIO: Lil Jon and DJ Snake’s “Turn Down For What (Dancehall Remix)”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

lil-jon-turn-down-for-what-dancehall-remix

Way before he was the “Yeah-yeah!” and “What!?!” guy, Lil Jon got his start making hip-hop remixes of reggae songs, most notably Capleton’s “Tour” and “Wings of the Morning,” in the mid ’90s. Now, decades and another genre switch later, things have come full circle: Jon and DJ Snake’s ubiquitous EDM smash “Turn Down For What” has spawned a dancehall remix featuring a top selection of current Jamaican artists, in Chi Ching Ching, Assassin and Konshens.

Powder “Fresh”: New Jillionaire Video Brings The Heat To Freezing NYC

Words by Natalie Weiner—jillionaire-fresh-video

Jillionaire, of Major Lazer fame and an esteemed member of the LargeUp family, has been putting in work on some of his side projects recently. After two years on the road with Major Lazer, he’s just launched his new label Feel Up Records, which just dropped its first release (the new Grand Analog LP) yesterday.

Jillionaire’s first single for the new label “Fresh,” which Major Lazer started playing live late last year, is officially dropping today on BBC Radio 1Xtra, accompanied by a predictably fly video filmed entirely in NYC. Co-produced by Salvatore Ganacci and featuring the Mr. Lexx-esque vocal stylings of Sanjin (both of Sweden via the Balkans), the track features the irresistible blend of dancehall and EDM that’s made Major Lazer a club staple. I mean, it’s already got girls twerking in the snow…
