Collie Buddz

Collie Buddz by Bousa Tatpaporn

Bermudian bashment starย Collie Buddz has been holding down the reggae/dancehall side of SXSW for a few years now, and he’s continuing that trend in 2014. The only difference? This year, his show comes on the heels of Collie’s signing with Salaam Remi’s Sony imprint, Louder Than Life. The announcement, made just last week, was paired with the release of a new single, “Light It Up” โ€” we can only assume that this year’s SXSW performance is the start of a major campaign to bring Buddz back to “Come Around“-era ubiquity. Fittingly, he’s performing at Remi’s Louder Than Life showcase at Remedy on Fridayย alongside Liam Bailey and Pete Rock (!)โ€”definitely a great chance to see what the two have planned for Buddz’s next releases.โ€”Natalie Weiner
