Money Changer: Download DJ Theory x Busy Signal’s “Real Spender$” Refix

Words by Jesse Serwer—

When he’s not holding things down as our Mixtape Mondays columnist, DJ Theory can be found doing some heavyweight mixing of his own, making bigger and bigger moves on the wheels, and in the studio. His latest effort to the latter end is a moombahton-tempo remix of Busy Signal’s Truckback Records release, “Real Spender$,” that brings the original up a few BPMs while still keeping that yard appeal. Call it moombahhall. This one first turned up in the mix on Toddla T’s BBC Radio 1 show the other day, but we’ve got a premiere of the whole thing below. DJs, come get this!

Hi, Rihanna: Federation Sound’s All-Dubplate Rihanna Birthday Mix

Words by Jesse Serwer, via Federation Sound

As you may know, our dude Max Glazer and Rihanna go way back. The Federation Sound boss man was Ms. Fenty’s original DJ, playing an instrumental role in the pop superstar’s early career, and still turns up as a DJ at her private parties. For her 24th birthday today, Mr. Glazer gave his old buddy a nice tribute by compiling an all-dubplate mix in her honor featuring pretty much every current dancehall star of note toasting to the Bajan princess’ B-day over their biggest recent hits. Popcaan’s “Ravin” and “Party Shot,” Beenie Man and Future Fambo’s “Rum and Red Bull,” Mavado’s “So Special,” Serani’s “No Games,” Vegas’ “I Am Blessed” and more all get Rihanna x 24 re-licks from the artists themselves. Stream the mix below, and download it here.

Redemption Film: “Marley” Trailer + Poster Art

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Talk of Academy Award-winning director Kevin MacDonald’s Marley documentary has been building for while, and it even had its premiere earlier this month in Berlin. But with its North American premiere, at South by Southwest in Austin, just weeks away on March 11, only now has a trailer and poster art for the film emerged. The two-minute clip for Marley—which, while certainly not the first documentary on Bob Marley’s life, is the first to get the Marley family’s full support—promises that the movie will contain previously unheard tracks and never-before-seen footage, while teasing interviews with the usual suspects: Bunny Wailer, Chris Blackwell, Rita Marley, Ziggy. Pretty straightforward. Marley hits theaters on 4/20, ’cause what date would be more appropriate.

Love Matters: Damian Marley’s “Affairs of the Heart” Video

Words by Nico Simino—

Damian Marley dropped a new single (on Valentine’s Day) and video (two days later), and never one to be put into a well-defined musical box, this new song has elements of some of his old songs, but with a new “electro lovers rock” sound added to the mix. Throughout the video he seems be rocking crowds and clubs all the while pining for one girl in particular. While he is traveling the world as a famous superstar, she seems to be traveling a fair bit her self. Plus, check out Jr. Gong in a tux.
