Throwback Thursdays: Black Chiney’s Most Classic Mixtapes


Black-Chiney-Walshy-Fire-Supa-Dups

A little over a year ago, Supa Dups, founder of Black Chiney Sound (and producer for Eminem, Bruno Mars and Rihanna, among others), uploaded the full catalog of the Miami DJ crew’s influential mixtape series to his Soundcloud page. Released on CD back when you had to purchase mixtapes by hand instead of downloading them for free, Black Chiney mixes were highly sought-after by dancehall enthusiasts at the time of their release in the early and mid 2000s. Renowned for their seamless blends of reggae vocals and hip-hop beats, they have taken on legendary status.

Our good friend, long-time LargeUp contributor and Major Lazer frontman Walshy Fire just inboxed us with the video for “Draw We Out” from Antigua’s Promise No Promises, along with this note: “I think I am doing well with discovering dope shit out of the Caribbean.” Walshy being the dude that first put us on to Chronixx--and helped bring Jesse Royal and Suns of Dub to global attention–and just that dude in general, we just had to stop what we were doing, and take a look.

Coming in extra hot to supplement today’s Mixtape Mondays comes the big combination from LargeUp extended family Jesse Royal and Mr. Walshy Fire. We’ve been steadily seeing Jesse rise as our Top Artist to Watch in 2014, and around this time last year went in for an in-depth interview to give people and idea of what’s to come from the singer.
