New riddim release series launches with Punanny 2016 featuring DJ Madd, Turbulence, Miss Red and more

Jamaican dancehall riddims have kept dancefloors moving for over three decades and the music continues to inspire and impact new generations of musicians.

NYC has always represented for dancehall culture, from the collaborations between rappers and Jamaican MCs in the 90s to local crews like Federation and Mixpak preserving both the history of the music and imagining its future.

This July, Dub-Stuy is proud to launch a new release series inspired by Jamaican dancehall riddims that seeks to update the classics for the modern dancefloor and pair them with new vocalists from Jamaica and around the world.

First up is a 2016 refix of King Jammy’s classic Punanny, first released 30 years ago and voiced by Admiral Bailey. Punanny 2016 was produced by DJ Madd, with added double-time swing and sub bass pressure, and features vocals from three generations of Jamaican MCs – Turbulence, Mikey General, and Kurry Stain – alongside Israel’s Miss Red, who has been burning up dances in Europe alongside The Bug.

Punanny 2016 is released in both digital formats and as a 2 x 7″ pack featuring artwork inspired by the original.

You can pre-order Punanny 2016 on Bandcamp and iTunes now.
