Fucken shit!! Electro dancehall champions from Jamaican / Canadian South Rakkas Crew have just released a fantastic album via Mad Decent totally for free (shocked !!!!). Go grab it peeps while the offer lasts. South Rakkas Crew is very very high in my personal ranking in baile / kuduro / dancehall / socca / tropical genre. For me, they outdistance not only Major Lazer (well, I've never been a fan of Diplo and Switch combo anyway)  but most of other heavy dancehall/electro hybrids. Highlights of the release are: Double Up riddim with fantastic Killa Queens and Lady Chan on vocals (this track was heavily rotated in my car's Sound System last year), baile funk version of Doble Up riddim, Mylo riddim, Holiday riddim. In general this is a showcase of a gang of fantastic emcees, including also Capleton, Serocee or Rage rapping to pounding and infectious electro beat. I love this pure, raw energy! Definitely, one of the best free releases I had a chance to listen ever. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
