LargeUp Audio: Stream Delly Ranx’s “Sweet Reggae” LP

Words by Jesse Serwer

DELLY-RANX-SWEET-REGGAE

Delly Ranx has been a major factor in dancehall music for years. Though he may be best known for his production work, which includes the groundbreaking Redbull & Guinness riddim (the basis for tracks such as Mavado’s “Weh Dem Ah Do”) with Stephen McGregor, he’s been a consistent factor as a deejay for years. Sweet Reggae is Delly’s fifth album and, while much of the LP follows with vintage reggae throwbacks, the album also mixes in a healthy dose of dancehall as well, rounding up all of Delly’s recent appearances, including “Juggle Me A Juggle” (on Mr. Vegas’ Protector riddim) and “Silly Billy” (on ZJ Liquid’s Good Book riddim).

AUDIO: Masicka x Shanique Marie x Addis Pablo – Lighters

Words by Deejay Theory —

EQUIKNOXX Masicka Addis Pablo Shanique Marie - Lighter

Let’s see some lighter for the vibey new tune from the always-delivering Equiknoxx Music camp featuring the voice of Masicka and frequent colloborator Shanique Marie plus the talented bredrin Addis Pablo. Backed by a subtly sweet and moody dancehall riddim Masicka comes with conscious heat right out the gate, with Shanique gracing the hook and Addis flexing the signature melodica on a spaced out atmospheric outro. We could get used to these kinds of feels in dancehall for sure …
