New music from Popcaan is always a good thing.
UK production duo Star.One connect with Zimbabwe’s Takura and Jamaican dancehall king Agent Sasco (Assassin) for a fiery new D&B/jungle record called “Original Badman”. It’s rare these days to find a track that merges the frenetic drums of D&B with soulful reggae vocals of the type that selectors would play in the early 90s scene. This record definitely captures that feeling and conjures memories of sneaking around my uncle’s house to catch my brother and cousins listening to “Original Nuttah” by Shy FX and Apache. A good education definitely starts with the youth and Star.One are definitely teaching a lesson with this release. Stream the track below and support via iTunes and Spotify. Also, stay tuned for a very special ITZSOWEEZEE Spotlight Series mix from Star.One next week.
