LargeUp Premiere: Megative feat. Screechy Dan + Metric Man – “No Fear”

July 11, 2018

Megative featuring Screechy Dan

Megative are a reggae and dub-inspired post-punk band in the tradition of The Clash or, even more precisely, Big Audio Dynamite. Just as Mick Jones’ post-Clash outfit counted reggae luminary Don Letts in its membership, Megative features the vocal talents of all-around NYC dancehall legend Screechy Dan. On โ€œNo Fear,โ€ they incorporate the deejaying talents of another New York-based, Caribbean talent in Trini-born lyricist Metric Man. The result is an atmospheric clash of sounds and a mission statement.ย  their upcoming debut album.

โ€œThereโ€™s a space between negative and positive that is more powerful than either, and we call that Megative,โ€ explains the group’s co-founder Gus Van Go. โ€œItโ€™s a place where fear dissipates and energy resounds like a three-story subwoofer…. thatโ€™s what ‘No Fear’ is about.โ€
