Tour De Force is the production side of Brooklyn-based selectors Double Tiger and DJ Q-Mastah, better known as Dub-Stuy Records. The two joined forces in 2012 and built a gorgeous, gigantic sound system (that’s it above) that they’ve been showing off around NYC and beyond while putting on dub-heavy dances and championing bass music.

When Sean Paul and Konshens performed “Want Dem All” on the newly relaunched Arsenio Hall Show the other day, it got us thinking, hmmmmm. “Mr. Let’s Get Busy” (that’s Arsenio, for you young’uns) had a whole heap of reggae artists on his original show back in the day. But this clip of big, dutty, stinkin Shabba Ranks and R&B singer Johnny Gill performing their combination tune “Slow And Sexy” definitely takes the cake.

protoje-chronixx-who-knows

Protoje‘s 8-Year Affair was one of our favorite Caribbean albums of 2013—maybe even our favorite, a mature sophomore release from an artist who had definitely found his sound. That sound being a contemporary, hip-hop-inflected spin on the militant, dubwise ’80s reggae of Black Uhuru, Aswad, etc.
