Often enough we tend to gravitate towards for western influenced afropop. It’s a thin line but more often than not its leabing toward modern day hip hop or house. This one is more of a throwback and is kind of interesting.

It’s been a decent year for UK dancehall and reggae. Couple of hits on the charts but nothing really that piqued our interest. Until we found this slack cut on the Boombox riddim by Myssa More.
Incredible UK Afropop from these guys. The new Moelogo is dissapointing in the sense that it took something visceral and turned it into some bland. This is raw and exciting and can’t wait to run this in the club.
Taken from last year’s Nectah EP, this track finally gets a video. Skip to 2.17 unless you are interested in an odd Dr Frankenstein horror movie intro for this power soca track. Needless to say the track is Murlo at his best and it makes you want to Jump Up in a circle. Looking forward to more Doubla J and Murlo collabs.
If there’s one thing we love and appreciate here at HDD it’s when different sounds come together to create something truly unique; Sam Interface and Laza Beam have definitely achieved this with their latest project under the name Jus Now. For this project Sam Interface (from Bristol) and Laza Beam (from Trinidad) have been fusing their favourite sounds from T&T and the UK and have been working with the likes of Bunji Garlin and MX Prime for their upcoming One Time EP. The One Time video was shot on location in Port Of Spain Trinidad, and like their music is a clever composition of island life and the mysterious.
Trust us Jus Now are going to be ruling the fetes from here to Trinidad this soca season, they are even behind one of our favourite soca riddims of 2013 Marimba Riddim, and Bunji Garlin’s Savage. You can hear more from Jus Now on their soundcloud.
