LargeUp Premiere: Screechy Dan’s “My Story” Mixtape

Words by DJ Autograph

Screechy-Dan-MyStory6-600x600

The day has finally arrived! Myself, Kenny Meez of Federation Sound, DJ Shirkhan of Safari Sound and LargeUp are all super excited to present Screechy Dan’s My Story  to the world. This mixtape is 65 minutes showcasing the many sides of Screechy Dan, most of which the world has never heard. Whether you know the Jamaica-born, Brooklyn-raised deejay’s history or not (If you don’t, make sure to also read LargeUp editor Jesse Serwer’s in-depth interview with Screechy here), we know you’re going to enjoy this mixtape spanning his classic material (“Pose Off,” “Skin Out”) and new and unheard lyrics interlaced with skits and freestyles demonstrating Screechy’s comedic talents.

My Story, Pt. 1: Download New Remixes From Screechy Dan

Words by DJ Autograph

screechy-dan

In August of last year Large Up ran a feature on iconic Brooklyn dancehall don Screechy Dan.  The piece detailed Screechy’s story from his arrival in the U.S. until the present day. Reading this story and witnessing Screechy perform on many occasions had me thinking to myself that Screechy is such an insanely talented artist, and that wasn’t really fully conveyed though his records.
