Toronto based Electro-Dancehall duo Bonjay double-premiered 2 new videos for the song “Stumble” today off their buzz worthy debut Broughtupsy. The 2 videos directed by Sammy Rawal are basically the same video, but featuring 2 different dancers. Choreographer Dana Michel created a work fusing dancehall movement vocabulary and modern dance techniques to reflect the fusion of Bonjay’s sound aesthetic. Dancer Addy Chan performed the work in the exclusive Canadian premiere on NOW Magazine (see video below), and dancer Liana Lewis is featured in the exclusive US premiere on Pop Matters (see video above).
Tricky Meets South Rakkas Crew comes out today, a version excursion of ten tracks from Tricky‘s Knowle West Boy, where electro-dancehall collides with Tricky’s whispering ‘sprechgesang’ lyrical style to create a dancehall filler, radio killer, soundtrack thriller that seems to touch on all the happening urban sounds from around the globe. We’re talking hip-hop, reggae and rock inna dubstep dancehall style that’s left-of-center pop for the 21st century. As Tricky says: “We come in peace and leave you in pieces.”
