LargeUp Premiere: De Tropix -”Beauty and the Beast” EP

Words by Natalie Weiner—


De Tropix, a U.K.-based duo with roots in St. Vincent, has come together to drop another dancefloor-ready EP. Composed of DJ/producer/vocalist Damon Bowen (a/k/a Instinct) and vocalist/M.I.A. collaborator Cherry B, De Tropix always brings dancehall/EDM tracks that seamlessly combine the group’s U.K. house and Caribbean influences. This three-song release includes the soca-tinged “Lockdown,” party jam “Hustle & Grind,” and “Burning From the Inside,” a more contemplative track featuring Larry Love (who also happened to sing the theme to The Sopranos). LargeUp had the chance to speak with De Tropix following the release of their last EP — check out that interview to learn more about their creative process.

Without much fanfare, Equiknoxx Music are making some of the most creative and interesting dancehall music right now. Actually, they’ve been doing that for a while. Their Wash Belly is one of our favorite riddims in recent years.

The production team led by Koffy Knoxx has just released a new EP called V-Town Sound: The Anti-Thesis. (it’s a sequel to an earlier V-Town Sound installment dubbed The Thesis), and every track is straight badness.
