You Rate It: Jus Now Remix Blaxx’s “Leh Go”

Words by Marcha M. Johnson

blaxx-jus-now-leh-go-largeup

With the 2015 Trinidad Carnival season getting off to a start, British-Trini production duo (and regularly featured LargeUp staples) Jus Now have dug into the 2013 Soca archives to put their own twist on Blaxx’s bacchanal instigator ‘Leh Go.’ For their version of his hit, they’ve coupled the artist’s commanding vocals with a raw rhythm section instrumental, managing to preserve the lightheartedness of the original tune while masterfully interpolating the sounds of a steel pan orchestra.

AUDIO: Jah Banks – “Battle For Middle You (BKBashment Remix)”

Words by Natalie Weiner, Photo by Charlie Rubinjah-banks-charlie-rubin

Remember Jah Banks Jah Makin Music mixtape, which we premiered back in February? We loved the whole thing, but definite standout was the “Battle For Middle You (BK Bashment Remix)” featuring the Brooklyn-raised, Jamaican MC (and staple presence on our LargeUp Sessions radio show) spitting over Julio Bashmore’s highly regarded house tune by that name. The infectious flip made it hard not to disagree with Banks proclamation that “BK be comin’ in hot this year.”

DJ Select (of RadioLily) and Robzilla noticed, too, that Banks’ version has all the ingredients of a club banger. So, they decided to re-edit the track, priming it for the dancefloor just in time for summer. A little house, a little dancehall, a little hip-hop—an irresistable combination, almost like a 2014 Reel 2 Real (yeah, we went there). Download below, and don’t be surprised if you hear this one next time you’re drinking Red Stripe on a patio somewhere.

LargeUp Premiere: Thornato ft. Jahdan “Ka Kong” (Captain Planet remix)

Words by Deejay Theory —

KaKongRemix-Cover

Get ready for some crazy new works from the depths of the tropical forest via Thornato featuring our bredrin Jahdan Blakkamoore in the booth. The remix treatment is served up by muilt-talented DJ/producer Captain Planet, who’s diversity comes through even further with this tune flipping the original into a reggae/dubstep/trap meteor ready to drop on dancefloors and soundbwoys worldwide. Jahdan kinda sounds good on everything, but particularly shines on beats like these, Captain Planet knocked it out the jungle. The original and remix are brought to you by NYC’s Cumba Mela Records, and are available as of today right here. Peep the remix below and find a co-worker to whine upon.
