Words by Jesse Serwer—
“Sound Bwoy” has turned out to be quite the hit for Stylo G. The single can currently be found high up on music charts in the UK, where it has already surpassed the deejay’s breakthrough single “Call Mi a Yardie” in terms of popularity and recognition.
Ahead of their trek to Jamaica this week (where they’re set to play Kingston’s Fiction and Quad clubs), British bashment crew The Heatwave set about giving the electro-pop-dancehall single “Soundbwoy” a roots-y makeover, placing Stylo’s speaker-burning a capella over some vintage Studio One—the Truths and Rights riddim to be exact. Turns out Stylo’s vocals, and the classic instrumental make a great fit.
