It A Go Dread: Equiknoxx introduces Masicka to King Tubby

Words by Deejay Theory —

artworks-000050335536-rw5yqz-originalWhat happens when you cut razor sharp new school flow over timeless dub versions? You get this wicked new combination from bussing young Portmore, JA artist Masicka and iconic dub producer and pioneer King Tubby. Any reggae collector has a King Tubby tape in their archives, and it’s refreshing to see a youth like Masicka paying tribute with this seven-track “old to the new” session produced by JA powerhouse Equiknoxx Music. It’s not all about guns and girls—sometimes you need to dig into the roots for inspiration…nicely done on all fronts. Stream four of the seven tracks below, download the full EP here. Pree the video from the sessions for full effect.

Clash in Overtime: Stream Cham’s “Lawless” + “Portmore Anthem”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Cham Lawless Artwork

Last month, Cham voiced JA Productions’ (very Dave Kelly-esque) Overtime riddim and pretty much knocked it out of the park, shouting out Jamaica’s most lawless quarters, from Tivoli to Standpipe to Gully to Flankers. The song was so hot, apparently, that Cham has revisited the riddim again for “Portmore Anthem.” This time he takes a more focused approach, voicing lyrics that at times recall his last truly great tune, “Ghetto Story.” Stream both tracks below, and tell us in the comments which version wins.
