Brooklyn-based mic-slayer/producer, 77klash, took the drum and bass-induced, post-genre rhythm, Skallawa, back to his homeland of Jamaica in 2005. Now, he's teamed up with warm-voiced reggae and dancehall mainstay, Johnny Osbourne, to produce a genre-advancing dancehall banger, “Mad Again (Whoa).” The video, directed by John Fine, features dancers from Ground Zero and Dancerz Blvd getting down to the minimalistic, low-end heavy, electro and hip hop-impelled track. The hipster-garbed move-makers and '80s throwback, yet oh-so in the now, florescent effects and filters create a modern electro sense, while the classic vocal stylings of Johnny Osbourne keeps it grounded in dancehall anthem territory.
