My Story, Pt. 1: Download New Remixes From Screechy Dan

Words by DJ Autograph

screechy-dan

In August of last year Large Up ran a feature on iconic Brooklyn dancehall don Screechy Dan.  The piece detailed Screechy’s story from his arrival in the U.S. until the present day. Reading this story and witnessing Screechy perform on many occasions had me thinking to myself that Screechy is such an insanely talented artist, and that wasn’t really fully conveyed though his records.

Watch Out Fi Dis: Major Lazer + Busy Signal On “Dancing With The Stars”

Words by Natalie Weiner—2D274905397452-140317-danica-mckellar-rh.blocks_desktop_large

You remember Winnie Cooper, heroine (and crush of 10-year-old boys everywhere) of late ’80s hit The Wonder Years? Well, as so many…post-fame celebrities before her, Winnie— aka actress and mathematician Danica McKellar— is taking her turn on the unfailingly popular television show Dancing With The Stars, now in its 18th season.

Last night Danica and her partner Val brought a serious dancehall moment to the typically ballroom-centric series, choosing Major Lazer and Busy Signal‘s “Watch Out For This (Bumaye)” as the soundtrack to their salsa routine. Salsa? Well, as we noted when the song dropped, it’s based on a sample of Wilie Colon and Ruben Blades’ “Maria Colonza.” The selection came as something of a surprise to the judges. Len, the show’s Simon Cowell, called the routine “a little pop-videoish” (if only he had seen the actual “Bumaye” video) while Bruno called it “ghetto fabulous salsa from the hood.” We’re just going to leave that there…
