LargeUp Premiere: Duane Stephenson’s “Cool Runnings” Video

duane-stephenson-cool-runnings

Roots reggae artist Duane Stephenson is exploring a different throwback sound in his newest video, “Cool Runnings”—vintage dancehall, by way of Bunny Wailer. The track, off Stephenson’s upcoming LP, Dangerously Roots, puts a classic yet fresh spin on Bunny Wailer’s rub-a-dub classic of the same name. “Dancehall nice again,” according to Stephenson’s opening lines—and the Ras Kassa-directed video showcases that, with shots of vinyl and cassettes, PG-13 dancing, and Red Stripe, instead of laptops, daggering, and apple vodka. This mellower take on dancehall culture fits Stephenson’s crooning to a T—and he even sports a mesh marina to complete the retro ambience.

Check out the video below, tell us what you think in the comments, and look out for Dangerously Roots via Greensleeves Records Sept. 23.
