Lawdamercy… Blasting off today courtesy of Miami don DJ Craze and the folks at his Slow Roast Records camp, we have this badman collab with heavyweight hip-hop don Green Lantern flipping an assortment of different sound killing techniques that are murdering the dance right now. On the first hand you have the obvious samples of Cutty Ranks’ classics “Wait de Man” and “Limb by Limb” all nicely chopped up, from the dem bow drum breaks to the iconic vocals. Add some punishing 808 bass, steady hand claps and moombahton-esque synth stabs, and you have a big bumboclaat bomb to drop on an unsuspecting dancefloor.
Let’s not forget Craze’s recent ragga-inspired mix that slid its way into our baddest mixtapes of 2013 post either— it’s good to see more of these crossover joints getting some shine. Stream and download below:
