Not heard since 2016, that Duppy Gun siren sounds again. “Miro Tape” is a 50 minute mixtape of twisted dancehall fuego, with the new school microphone talent of Sikka Rymes, I Jahbar, Early One, Lyrical Wiz, Sniper, Buddy Don and Lopo. They clash on riddims from Bokeh Sound (Jay Glass Dubs, Seekersinternational, Abu Ama) and the Duppy Gun Production House (D/P/I, Butchy Fuego, Big Flyte & Velkro and Ras G.)
Re-configuring dancehall DNA for 7 years now, Duppy has been a huge inspiration on the Bokeh version sound since Dayone’s conquering Multiply landed in 2011. Miro is a taste of some collaborative efforts cooking between the two labels. Mixed by Velkro and recorded in Duppy Gun’s newly-built Jamaican HQ (headed by I Jahbar); 80% of the material here is unheard and ready for global release. Founded by Sun Araw and M. Geddes Gengras, Duppy Gun pairs under-cover West Coast producers with Jamaican vocalists like G Sudden or Early One.
