LargeUp Premiere: Slum Village – “Fall In Love” (Suns of Dub Remix)

Words by Jesse Serwer— Suns-of-Dub-Major-Lazer

Suns of Dub’s mix of Slum Village’s “Fall In Love” was easily one of our favorite tunes on their self-titled mixtape, premiered right here in December. There’s no real rocket science involved: Suns (at the suggestion of mixtape producer Walshy Fire) had their Addis Pablo play on top of the J Dilla-produced instrumental, creating a conversation between Addis’ melodica (in place of T3 and Baatin’s verses) and Dilla’s haunting hook.

In honor of J Dilla Month (the late producer’s 40th birthday was Feb. 7, and he also passed away during the month of February), Suns of Dub have shared the remix, available for the first time as a standalone track. Cop it below, hear more from Suns of Dub at their Soundcloud and go behind the scenes with Addis (son of the late Augustus Pablo) and Sons of Dub cohort Ras Jammy in our “Meditations” documentary series.

It’s not like Pharrell really needs any extra heat right now — he’s had production credits on many of the most notable albums in the past year, adding to his already abundant collection of statues and plaques.

If you’ve been following me through my column “Blacka’s World,” then you know that I recently choreographed Major Lazer’s latest music video (for “Lose Themselves” featuring RDX) with the help of Mela Murder—and that choreo came out fantastic! I’ll be teaming up yet again with Mela to teach my only dancehall class for the month of January in NYC, Friday, Jan. 10 at DANY Studios in Manhattan.

Words by LargeUp Crew—

If there’s anything we learned about Addis Pablo and his crew Suns of Dub in the last year, it’s that they are prolific. Following a busy 2013 that ended with a Major Lazer-produced mixtape, our Meditations documentary series and a performance with The Roots at the Okayplayer Holiday Jam, Addis is kicking off 2014 with a trio of limited-edition vinyl, pre-release singles, “Walls of Jericho,” “One Love, One Heart, One Family” and “Wareika Mystic,” via Holland’s Jah Solid Rock label.
