“The whole thing is beautiful, intimate and will give you a serious case of winter FOMO.”
This past Wednesday, Popcaan gave a special performance of his album in Kingston, Jamaica. Expect more video & photos soon, but for a little taste and to see the guests he brought out (including Sizzla, Beenie Man, Lady Saw, Lisa Hyper and more) check the selection below and see some more here.
The polls are open for the UK’s 19th Music of Black Origin (MOBO) Awards! Vote Popcaan for “Best Reggae Act” by visiting MOBO’s website.
After dropping his edit of Popcaan’s ‘Naughty Girl’, Dubbel Dutch has delivered an entire EP of Hyperwine Refixes. Sprinkling a bit of Caribbean spice over songs by Tinashe, Ellie Goulding, Brandy, and Gyptian as well as Popcaan, Dubbel Dutch has featured some of these remixes and edits in his live sets, but now you can relive all of those halcyon moments, and stream these songs online as the ‘summer on tap’ winds down.
From his interview with The Fader:
This EP is a selection of previously unavailable remixes and edits that I created for mixes, live sets, and just to share with friends. All the tracks are Caribbean influenced and intended to summon uplifting, energetic, and motivational feelings in the listener. “Hyperwine” just felt like a good description overall for that sort of sound. I like to imagine them as warp-speed tools for transporting people to bacchanalian ecstasy. Hopefully, they’ll also help some ravers cure their post-labor day carnival comedown.
We all know about the winning combination of Popcaan & Dubbel Dutch. As part of The Fader’s Caribbean week (which also includes an excellent interview with Lady Saw and a piece on women’s sexuality in the dancehall), he’s just dropped his edit of Popcaan’s ‘Naughty Girl’. As they say, it’s ‘summer on tap’, download for free now.
