LargeUp Premiere: Machel Montano x Dre Skull = “Go Down”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

For his new Loudspeaker riddim, Dre Skull of Mixpak Records and Vybz Kartel’s Kingston Story fame has connected with none other than the reigning Groovy and Power Soca monarch, Machel Montano. While Machel has been known to step out of his high-BPM soca comfort zone on occasion, you’ve never heard him on a pure dancehall riddim quite like this before. This one is definitely gonna make both the gyuls and gyals go dung this summer, in what we expect will be a sexy show of Trini-JA dancefloor solidarity. Stream “Go Down” below, preview the rest of the tunes here, and look out for the full riddim release, also featuring Beenie Man, Popcaan and Natalie Storm, here on May 22.

High Fidelity: Dre Skull’s Loudspeaker Riddim

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Dre Skull and Mixpak Records have an excellent new riddim called Loudspeaker on the way May 22, and they’ve just released this clip hosted by our bredrin Walshy Fire as a preview of what’s in store. The ethereal riddim itself has nuff vibes, and the release has some of our favorite artists: Popcaan, Beenie Man, Machel Montano and our very own Punany Monologues columnist Natalie Storm. Feel like there’s a summer anthem in there somewhere but can’t quite call which it is yet. Which one do you think will buss?

Found Footage: Hitler Finds Out About Machel Montano’s Clean Sweep

Words by Jesse Serwer—

By now you’ve probably seen at least a few YouTube videos of Hitler losing his shit for various improbable reasons. The footage is from the climactic scene in a German movie called Downfall and, no matter what the subtitles tell us Der Fuhrer is freaking out over, the results are usually pretty funny. The trend has finally reached the Caribbean. That’s right, Der Fuhrer found out about Machel Montano’s clean sweep at Soca Monarch/TnT Carnival this year, and he’s none too pleased. But Kerwin DuBois “make ah bess song,” an incredulous Hitler says. Unable to digest the news, he jokes, “I even hear he coming for Chutney next year too!” before unleashing a torrent of expletives covering everything from last year’s curfew to the price of gyros. Tip of the hat to Jillionaire for spotting this one.
