Easy Star: New Serani “My Star” Video on Dancehall Again

January 24, 2011

Words by Eddie STATS Houghton


Following up on the breakout success of “No Games” Serani is back on a 90s throwback thing, reanimating not only the dancehall vibes of the Pepperseed era with the Daseca-built Dancehall Again riddim (I premiered it here) but also the melodic vibes of your sweet 16 slow-dance. The title seems like a nod to classic ladies’ tunes by Wayne Wonder (“Movie Star”) and Professor Grizzly (“Shining Star”) and more importantly the song itself is worthy of such comparisons on every level. The video is pretty straightforward but well-shot and shall we say, well-proportioned (in the coca-cola bottle sense). Badmen, watch and tek note after the jump. Awo! Yuh learn.
