We can always count on producer and LargeUp contributor Juss Kool to deliver some heat. The Jamaican-born, New York-raised beatmaker has made some big riddims and tracks, both with and without his name in the credits.

For his latest release, heโ€™s teamed with reggae scion Leno Banton on the appropriately titled โ€œBig.โ€ The track finds the son of Burro Banton โ€” the original Banton โ€” dropping aspirational lyrics over a sweeping dancehall riddim that oozes with hypnotic keys and pulsating drums.

Leno is one of Jamaicaโ€™s most promising young artists. His recent EP, Loverman, is full of bops like the delightful โ€œPina Colada,โ€ but he isnโ€™t quite a household name in Jamaica… yet. โ€œBigโ€ is his stab at a straigtforward dancehall banger, and it delivers.

โ€œThis song is about how I envision myself in the future,โ€ the young Banton says. โ€œHow I see myself being a force to be reckoned with, in multiple aspects of life. Not just music — in real estate, in creating jobs for other people and just being a household brand.โ€

Juss Kool speaks glowingly of his collaborator. โ€œLeno is impressive… an artist in the truest sense,โ€ he says. โ€œHe pays attention to detail in everything, from the sound in the riddim to the visuals to his production to marketing and the business side.โ€

Time will tell if this is the one that elevates Leno closer to his goals and that next level of success, but weโ€™ll definitely be adding it to our list of 2021โ€™s best dancehall tracks.
