Top of the World Again: DJ Tanner, Theory + More Remix the Rascalz + Barrington Levy

Words by Nico Simino—

Vancouver rap trio the Rascalz dropped their single “Top of the World,” featuring the legendary Barrington Levy and Trini-born Toronto MC K-OS, back in 1999. While the tune was something of a hit north of the border, if you’re not a Canadian yourself, chances are this might be you’re first time hearing of it. Fortunately, this interesting collaboration has been given some new life, reworked four different times and packaged into the Top of the World Remix EP, a project of DJ Tanner, of Canadian selectors Faction Sound Crew. While you can listen to and download the whole EP here and judge for yourself, we thought we’d bring your attention to our favorite remix of the bunch, from Large Up’s very own DJ Theory. Check out Theory’s moombahsoul “Top of the World” remix below:
