Badda Don Dada: Ward 21 Channel Super Cat on “Mic Magician”

Words by DJ Autograph
Ward-21-Badda-Badda-Gang

I might be a Jamaican but my introduction to Ward 21’s “Mic Magician” is a fortunate and direct result of my current effort to learn Swedish. I was listening to Safari Sound’s show on Swedish National Radio Friday, when I was blown away by the Super Cat sample-driven “Mic Magician,” featuring Marcy Chin and Deewunn, the newest members of Ward 21′s extended Badda Badda Gang family. The song’s use of “Under Pressure” is easily the best use of a Super Cat sample this side of Nas’ Salaam Remi-produced “The Don.”

Mixtape Mondays: Douster’s “Inna Douster Style N Fashion” (LargeUp Premiere)

Words by Deejay Theory —

douster-inna-style-n-fashion

It’s good to see French tropical/bass/club music maestro Douster moving fully in the dancehall arena with his newest project—a wicked, four- track EP featuring the fresh voices of JA talents Keida, Cee Gee, Kantana and Kari Jess (not to mention some cool, Limonious-inspired artwork). Our friends at Mixpak passed thru this week to drop off this full-length DJ mix from Douster as a teaser for the release. The mix is stacked with favorites from the early days of dancehall to today, from Gregory Isaacs and Yellowman to Busy Signal and Tifa (and some French ragga, too), so we had to do the premiere for you right here on Mixtape Mondays just to fully hype up the ting.

Bob and Wine: Tifa Gets Punchy in “Champion Bubbler” Video

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Major Lazer in Kingston, Jamaica

It’s been a few years since Tifa first grabbed our attention as part of TNT, or the Badda Badda Gals, with Natalie Storm and Timberlee. While her former crewmates have gone quiet recently, Tifa has stepped up her presence, emerging as dancehall’s most popular young female artist—and a potential heir apparent to the genre’s perpetually retirement-threatening queen, Lady Saw.
