After blasting onto the scene on the biggest dancehall tune of the year, “Clarks,” Portmore’s Popcaan has since proved himself as one of the most talented up-and-coming vocalists in the genre. Coming up as Vybz Kartel’s protégé, the young man has lent his distinctive voice to an arsenal of bashment hits, from ghetto laments to party smashers. Most recently, this past fall Popcaan was the first dancehall artist since Sean Paul to have his track playlisted on the BBC and big things are set to follow for the “Raving King.”
Now Popskull teams up with Dre Skull for a series of Mixpak releases, the first being the single, Get Gyal Easy. Dre Skull’s shaking bass crescendos and minor key string stabs provide the backbone for an emotional gallis anthem, a slow-burning and euphoric bashment tune that showcases Popcaan’s versatile singjay style.
This is Mixpak keeping its bond with Jamaica as tight as ever.
