Words by Jesse Serwer—
Dancehall artists doing soca is such a mixed bag. Sure, Beenie Man and Busy Signal seem to kill every soca rhythm they touch but there’s only a handful of other Jamaican deejays who’ve had any success with the style in recent years. Put Mr. Vegas in that category—if not for his straight up soca tunes (though this one is kind of dope) than the brilliant dancehall meets soca vibes of “Tek Weh Yuself.” Now, 758 out of St. Lucia have taken two of Vegas’ latest dancehall tunes,“Bruk it Down” and “Beautiful Life,” bruk them down and given them beautiful new, Groovy-tempo life. Stream them both below.
