Last fall, our friends Jasmine Solano and Melo-X took their celebrated, super-fun, dancehall/electro/anything-goes dance party Electric Punanny on a 360-degree world tour. The six-country, nine-city sojourn touched down in Paris, Stockholm(“That was one of the first spots that surprised us with how much reggae they knew,” says Melo-x), London; Munich, Berlin, Melbourne, Sydney and Queensland (Australia) in October, before climaxing in Tokyo in November.

We’re back with your morning-after-the-Super-Bowl edition of Mixtape Mondays on deck. We know Beyonce’s dancehall-infused halftime performance last night has you in a Caribbean frame of mind, so we’re covering all of the bases with roots, rap, dancehall and electro-bashment business. Your Monday soundtrack should be looking a whole lot better right now. And look for our new LargeUp mix series launching this Friday with a mix from Jillionaire. Boom.

Words by LargeUp Crew, Photo by Brock Fetch, Video by Vinny & Tone—

After a brief hiatus, Jasmine Solano and Melo-X‘s Electric Punanny returns on Sat. Aug 4, at The Loft/Public Assembly in Brooklyn, with guest selectors Max Glazer, Jillionaire and Smutlee—and a fresh, Limonious-inspired flyer. The event also marks the fourth anniversary of the eclectic, dancehall-meets-Downtown party, and Jasmine, Melo and visual collaborators Vinny and TONE have given us the fly new video they’ve put together to celebrate that milestone. If you haven’t yet had your first taste of Electric Punanny, you’re definitely gonna want some after watching this clip, which captures the party in all its raunchy, colorful splendor. (Wicked soundtrack, too, in Schlacthofbronx’s “Touch Your Toes,” featuring vocals from our own Punanny-ologist Natalie Storm). Lock down that Punanny access for Saturday night with advance tickets here.
