LargeUp Premiere: Beenie Man’s “Rock the World” Video

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Beenie Man takes an Audi ride into space in his trippy new video for “Rock the World,” on Portmore-based production team Brukkout‘s Sewage Breath riddim. But, as with so many dancehall videos, it’s the dancers who take things to the cosmos. Beenie’s co-stars in “Rock the World,” Sweden’s Blackout Twinz, have been making noise in Jamaica since becoming their home country’s dancehall queens a few years back, and they show us why with a charismatic performance to match that of the always-lively Beenie. Also making turns in “Rock the World,” directed by Stephen K. Schuster and Weird Days (a Brooklyn director team known for their work with Das Racist and indie band Real Estate, among others) are one of Beenie’s sons, and a bottle of Yaad Swag, his newly launched rum.

Visual Culture: Q+A with Suze Webb of Shimmy Shimmy & No Ice Cream Sound

Words by Erin MacLeod

To the internet, Shimmy Shimmy is a thoroughly interesting, dancehall-minded blog of the same name. To the real world, they’re producers of events, a range of equally dancehall-minded t-shirts and publishers of No Ice Cream Sound, a fanzine that’s enjoyed by people from the UK to the EU to the USA to JA (And which happens to have a new issue out next week).
