This Infectious Dancehall Banger Is The Dose Of Jamaican Sunshine You Need Today
Irish producer Famous Eno teams up with Jamaican vocalist Alexx A-GAME and U.K. MCs Serocee and Fox on “Gangsters.”
London-based Irish producer Famous Eno, as well as being a prolific and ridiculously fun DJ, is part of the subwoofer-loving, U.K.-based dancehall collective Swing Ting. For the club night-turned-label's latest release, he puts a minimalist yet undeniable beat behind two U.K. MCs—Birmingham native Serocee and Manchester's Fox—and Alexx A-GAME from Kingston, Jamaica. The result is a melting pot in the hottest sense of the phrase, with the infectious hook blaring like a siren, hard-hitting stories warping into light-hearted bars, and the beat shimmering like metal left out in the sun.
As Famous Eno told The FADER over email: "I wanna make dancehall for the club kids, [so I can] mix some B-more or tech house out of it and get the place jumping. Three vocalists, three cities, three styles."
Swing Ting will release "Gangsters" on April 15. Listen below, and learn more about the crew by revisiting their FADER profile.
