Temperature Rising: Watch Natalie Storm’s “Hotta” Video

Words by Jesse Serwer

Natalie Storm isn’t just our sex columnist (New Punanilogue out today! Read up on all the rest of them here!), she’s also one of our favorite dancehall artists. Far from your typical female deejay, Nat has her own sassy, electro-influenced spin on Jamaican music that she calls electrofied garrison dancehall. In an era when many dancehall acts are willing to compromise their brand to jump on any trend they can hitch themselves to, Natalie’s distinctive aesthetic comes through in every single thing she does. Exhbit A: “Hotta.” Produced by Ward 21, the accurately titled tune was first featured as a premix on her Federation Sound-helmed 2010 mixtape, Songs 2 F@#k & Fight 2, and released as a single earlier this year. The video, directed by Roli Brown, depicts Natalie in a typically colorful light, as she sets what must be a record for most costume changes in a dancehall video (For the record, we’re partial to the pinstripe jacket-and-black-stockings look). Hotter than she yuh can’t find. Gees and peas!

Mixtape Mondays: Jillionaire, Jah T Jr, DJ Select

Words by DJ Theory

Jillionaire, mix for Big Chill Presents (via Hipsters Don’t Dance):  Our globe-skating Trinidadian contributor Jillionaire has found himself in London at the moment to drop some tropical knowledge on the Dancehall Jamboree party on the 26th.  These London cats really know how to throw my kind of party, melding dancehall and bashment with soca, tropical bass, UK funky, dub, grime. This one is a more straight dancehall and reggae party and is bound to deliver the goods as it’s curated by the folks from some of London’s finer dancehall nights Hipsters Dont Dance and Physically Fit.  Big Chill Presents and their venue Big Chill House are pretty well recognized for events such as this and the much larger Big Chill festival which this year included Kanye West, Horace Andy, James Blake, Buraka Som Sistema, Spoek Mathambo and tons more.  To get the motors running for the party next week, Jillionaire cooked up a nice little pot of soca and dancehall that should get anybody in the London area properly fired up, and anyone in any other part of the world ready to throw off their shirt and swing it like a towel in their living room.  In addition to the Jilly thing, HDD’s own Kazabon & Hootie Who chefed up a wicked mix on the side with some of the artists on the bill plus some choice dancehall, soca and uptempo bits, and even a remix from this dude.  Definitely worth peeping as well, stream and tracklist here.  Stream and tracklist for Jillionaire mix here.

DJ Select, Bruk Out:  Our boy DJ Select just came with some new heatery, nicely balancing UK, JA and NYC vibes with selections from Vybz Kartel, Donaeo, Toddla T, Busy Signal x Fatman Scoop and Kano, MJ Cole, Maluca–and last not least a tough selection of tunes on Federation Sounds’ Flatlands Remix Project!
