“Honorebel” Mention: Dubbel Dutch and Jus Now’s Fader Mixes
A valuable contributor to dancehall this year was Brooklyn-based DJ/producer Dubbel Dutch. As a creator who’s been exploring new and uncharted corners of club music for years, Dubbel Dutch put his stamp on dancehall with some key credits to Popcaan’s superb debut album, Where We Come From. For his mix for Fader, he gives you an inside look at an etheral side of dancehall, R&B and more from one of the best in the biz. Stream and download below, tracklist here.
One of the most exciting outfits in Caribbean music this past 12 months has been UK / Trini duo Jus’ Now. Responsible for an impressive round of hits including carnival staples like Bunji Garlin’s “Truck on D Road” and Machel Montano’s “Junction,”, the sound permeating from this team is one of pure energy and vibes, a feeling they wrapped up neatly for their own Fader mix. A heap of original material and exclusive pre-releases made this one extra large. Stream and download below, tracklist here.
