Throwback Thursdays: Wayne Wonder x Def Jamaica x Federation Sound

Words by Jesse Serwer—

wayne-wonder-cnn-lexxus-anything-goes

The year was 2003, and dancehall was at its peak, attaining unprecedented infiltration of the U.S. and other global markets. Naturally, given the long-running connection and similarities between dancehall and rap, the hip-hop world wanted a piece of the action, and tracks featuring big-name rappers ‘longside  the day’s top dancehall deejays proliferated. One major result of this phenomenon was Def Jam’s Def Jamaica project, featuring the Meth and Red x Damian Marley collab “Lyrical. 44,” among other memorable tunes.

VIDEO + AUDIO: Orange Hill ft. Mr Lexx “The Boom Boom”

Words by Deejay Theory —

Screen shot 2013-08-07 at 8.27.31 AM

The electro bashy homies at Orange Hill Productions are back with a brand new visual for their wild dancehall-meets-big-room collab with the always entertaining Mr. Lexx called ‘The Boom Boom.” With their last video, for “Pon Time” featuring Vybz Kartel, charting new territory by incorporating CGI graphics (’cause, you know, Kartel was unable to make the shoot in person…) this one is a little more straight to the point. Booty clapping and dancehall have a long history: this combination just turns up the dial a few notches for the ladies. Peep the video below, and selectors grab that free download, so you can try this one on at the club..

LargeUp Premiere: Toddla T vs. David Heartbreak feat. Mr. Lexx, “Pum Pum”

Words by DJ Theory —


Bashment mechanics Toddla T and David Heartbreak meet bedroom specialist Mr Lexx to give us some insight on what it means to be a modern-day gallis on their new tune titled, you guessed it.. Pum Pum. Taking authentic dancehall to the electronic stage can be a little tricky, but each of these dudes know the deal with crossover territory and have been pushing the boundaries with major releases and collaborations in their respective corners. For this new double dose of versions from Toddla’s Girls Music imprint, you get a taste of raw dancehall vibes inna moombahton fashion. The artist formerly known as Lexxus is in vintage form, riding the signature 108bpm riddim with his distinctive flow, and a couple nods to hip-hop.

Audio: Mr. Lexx x The Wizard, “Rugu Rugu” + “Pon Mi”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Mr. Lexx hasn’t put out an album in a dozen years—not since his first, AKA…Mr. Lex, back before he had to change his name from Lexxus. Good news then that one of our favorite deejays is finally ready to unleash a followup, LEXXICON: The Lexx Factor (FiWi Music/21 Music Group). Building on Lexx’s recent success dabbling outside of traditional dancehall waters with Major Lazer, Congorock and the like, “Rugu Rugu” and “Pon Mi” meet dancehall and experimental electronic vibes halfway. The onomatopoeic “Rugu Rugu” is a brief and visceral story about sudden machine gun blasts; the latter an ethereal sex tune. Behind both and, in fact, the whole project is up-and-coming Jamaican producer, The Wizard, the daughter of one Beres Hammond. Stay tuned to LargeUp for more on The Wizard here soon—and look out for the “Rugu Rugu” video, too.
